A Modern And Reliable Method For Giving Up Smoking!

Tabex

Tabex is an original Bulgarian preparation of plant origin, intended for the treatment of tobacco smoking.

The preparation is developed on the basis of the
alkaloid Cytisine, contained in the plant Cytisus laborinum L.
(Golden Rain acacia).

The broad clinical studies carried out,
show that the therapy with the preparation Tabex results in
giving up smoking in more than 57% of the patients.

In the human body, Cytisine plays the role of nicotine substitution substance, and reduces the period of interaction of the received nicotine with relevant nicotine receptors, i.e. the specific substance cytisine "substitutes" nicotine, acting on the same receptors, thus preventing the appearance of abstinence syndrome. This results in a gradual reduction and suspension of the psychic and physical dependency to nicotine in smokers. Cytisine possesses a structure and mechanism of action that are similar to those of nicotine, but it has much lower toxicity.

Tabex manifests one of the best results to date for the group of preparations, intended for tobacco smoking therapy. Cytisus laborinum L the Tabex source plant aka Golder Rain acacia. Tabex is very well tolerated, and when applied in therapeutic doses, allows a gradual giving up of smoking without any side effects.

The total giving up of smoking should take place not later than the fifth day after the beginning of the therapy. Supplied in a package of 100 filmtablets of 1.5 mg Citysine.

PHYSIOLOGICAL MECHANISMS OF THE ORIGIN
OF NICOTINE DEPENDENCE AND ITS OVERCOMING!

Paun D. and Franze J. have studied and analyzed the physiological prerequisites for the harmful habit of smoking. After inhalation of a cigarette by a person with low blood pressure and possibly also with low blood sugar content, for about 20 minutes nicotine increases the blood pressure and the blood sugar level. In persons with normal blood pressure and blood sugar values, the nicotine in the blood leads to hormonal and vegetative changes in the organism, while the discontinuation of smoking leads to a decrease in the blood pressure and blood sugar values. That is why, nicotine abstinence is clinically manifested with exhaustion, tiredness, poor concentration and irritability (abstinence manifestations), which provokes a strong craving for nicotine. The abstinence syndrome can be controlled by restoring the normal blood pressure and blood sugar values by means of analeptics, tranquilizers and mostly by means of specific drugs , such as cytisine, lobeline, etc. These specific drugs "replace" nicotine by acting on the same functional receptor constellations.
