Cellfood, l-citrulline, and chantix. Can i take these at the same time?

Yes: I'm very glad you are undertaking to quit smoking. Don't expect either of the other two concoctions to affect your health or well-being either for better or worse.

Don't bother.: Save your money. There is no decent, independent study of sufficient size and quality to say that it will do anything for you, good or bad.
