So Why Use Fresh?

Because FRESH works with you, not against you.

FRESH ensures that smokers who have attempted to quit do not lose all of their hard won progress and for those who are trying to cut-back it offers an over 90% reduction without changing their daily smoking routine.

How does FRESH compare with Nicotine Replacement (NR) products? (Patches & Gum)

FRESH helps smokers lower Nicotine intake as efficiently than Nicotine patches, gum or inhalers and FRESH does it without going “Cold Turkey” or by adding Nicotine. And NR products have a success rate of only 7%.

What’s the FRESH Guarantee?

ONLY FRESH Filters Guarantee a reduction of over 90% of your habit. FRESH cuts the Tar and Nicotine you take in everyday by over 90%, in a natural way until you’re ready to quit. With FRESH you lower the bar by over 90% Guaranteed!

How does FRESH work?

It’s as simple as it is effective.

Fresh is a mechanical pressure filter. As you inhale you put the smoke under pressure, as it exits the “filter” it expands suddenly and as it does the heavier elements Tar, Nicotine (And a very long list of additives) drop out of the smoke and are deposited inside the FRESH filter.

Note: There are more than 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, 69 of them cause cancer (NY Tri-County Cessation Center.)

Will FRESH change the taste or temperature of my cigarette?

NO, FRESH has no filtering substance (water, charcoal or fiber) so it has nothing to interact with the taste of your cigarette. Fresh adds nothing but removes over 90% of the Tar, Nicotine.

How can I tell its working?

Fresh is clear so you’ll see all of the trapped Tar & Nicotine from your very first cigarette.

How many FRESH filters will I need?

Each filter can filter up to five regular or ten light cigarettes.

How much will using FRESH cost me?

Each pack of FRESH has 30 filters and costs $2.50 to $4.00. That’s good for 150 regular or 300 light cigarettes. A pack-a-day regular’s smoker would need only one pack of FRESH a week and a lights smoker one pack of FRESH every two weeks. FRESH is by far the most economical of all the smoking cessation methods.

Does FRESH have any proof that it works?

Answer: Read the Arista labs report.

YES! It does, right here on this site, FRESH has its latest lab test done by Arista Labs, the largest independent cigarette testing company in the US.

Can I quit using FRESH?

Yes, using FRESH and reducing gradually, your daily number of cigarettes can be very effective in overcoming Nicotine addiction. Once your daily Nicotine intake is below the minimum your body needs to maintain your addiction, it will soon cease to exist. Using FRESH cuts your intake of Nicotine by more than 90%. FRESH turns the Nicotine found in a pack into the equivalent of that of only two cigarettes.

The daily number of cigarettes needed to maintain a nicotine addiction varies from person to person but cutting back while using FRESH quickly lowers the bar needed to reach your personal nicotine quit level.

Are there any side effects?

“Less Tar – More taste”

FRESH filters only reported side-effect is an improvement in the taste of user’s cigarettes. This is due to the removal of most of the chemicals added to cigarettes by cigarette companies.

Is it ok to keep smoking as long as I use FRESH?

NO! FRESH strongly recommends that you try to quit. Please know that NO filter can make smoking “safe.”
