Nicotine needs from 48-72 hours in order to leave the system, and yet, the cream of tartar, the byproduct of the wine making process, can effectively pull it from the body!
Cream of tartar has various other uses as well, and we will reveal some other benefits!
It is technically known as potassium hydrogen tartrate, and it is a sediment from the bottom of wine barrels, meaning it is not alcoholic.
Here is how you can use it:
1 – Reduces Blood Pressure
Low potassium levels raise the risk of high blood pressure. However, 100 grams of cream of tartar contains 16,500 milligrams of potassium.
Therefore, if you suffer from potassium deficiency, consult your doctor and add a teaspoon of cream of tartar in a glass of water and drink it every night.
2 – Soothes Arthritis Pain
According to Dr. Sircus, magnesium “modulates cellular events involved in inflammation”, and 100 grams of cream of tartar contains 2 milligrams of magnesium.
Therefore, in the case of arthritis, mix 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar with 3 tablespoons of Epsom salt to create a bath, and soak in it at least half an hour twice a day.
In case the pain is localized, cut the amount of cream of tartar and Epsom salt in half, and use a bucket instead.
3 – Quits Smoking
Cream of tartar makes the taste of cigarettes unpleasant to smokers. It should be mixed with orange juice, which will increase the vitamin C levels which are reduced due to nicotine, and flushes nicotine.
If you want to give up smoking, you should drink a medium glass of orange juice with half a teaspoon of cream of tartar every night for a month.
4 – Clears Acne
According to Theodora Pennypacker, the acidic properties of the cream of tartar clean the skin and fight acne. Add a teaspoon of cream of tartar to 8 ounces of water or orange juice, and drink this every day to detoxify the body and remove bacteria which cause acne.
5 – Relieves Urinary Tract Infection
The cream of tartar also treats urinary infections, as it changes the pH levels of the urine. You should add 1 ½ teaspoons to a cup of warm water, add a few drops of lemon juice, and drink this remedy a few times daily.
