If you’re trying to quit smoking, try adding a little fish oil to your diet. Researchers in Israel have found that fish oil can reduce cravings for cigarettes. In the study, smokers who were given omega-3 capsules every day for a month cut their cigarette consumption by 11 percent.
Smoking is known to reduce the levels of essential fatty acids in the brain, especially that of omega-3. A lack of omega-3 makes it hard for the smoker’s body to deal with cravings.
