Nautilus International, Inc., has announced European launch of NicoShot™, the world's first smoking-cessation beer containing a shot of natural nicotine.
NicoShot is brewed to the German Purity Law of 1516 and contains 3 milligrams of naturally derived nicotine alkaloids, 63 calories and 4.5 carbohydrates, with 6.3% alcohol by volume per 250 ml shot can.
The cutting-edge nicotine beer is fire brewed separately and a standardized herbal extract of Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is added at the end of the natural brewing process.
NicoShot is cigarette satisfaction in a beer without the smoke. For most smokers, three cans of NicoShot is comparable to an entire pack of conventional cigarettes. Best of all, there's none of the tar or carbon monoxide that comes from burning tobacco.
Similar to nicotine gum, NicoShot is considered nicotine replacement therapy that provides a steady, controlled release of nicotine. It can be used to relieve withdrawal symptoms at the beginning of quitting, to relieve urges from cigarette smoke (cravings) while quitting, or to avoid relapse months after quitting when a new stress or situation may trigger a strong urge to smoke.
While NicoShot can lessen cravings, it is not a 'cure' for smoking. But it can help you make changes in your lifestyle without having to walk out of the bar for a quick smoke to deal with sudden withdrawal symptoms. Over time, when you are more comfortable being a nonsmoker, the use of nicotine beer can be reduced and then stopped.
"NicoShot is a smoking-cessation brew designed to satisfy the nicotine urge whenever you want a cigarette, but can't smoke -- providing a realistic way to quit smoking," says Richard H. Davis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nautilus International, Inc.
"NicoShot is a nicotine enhanced beer that can significantly control cigarette cravings, yet it tastes like a fine imported European beer, but instead it gives you that extra shot of nicotine," said Davis.
