Regain Lost Lung Capacity

Used TarGard Filter

Over time, smoking causes tar build up in the lungs. This is a widely known, understood and publicized fact. This is the problem that TarGard is designed to address, going back all the way to 1963 when TarGard was originally released.

TarGard does not remove 100% of the tar in cigarette smoke. TarGard also does not make claims as to what percent of tar is removed, because it truly depends on how hard the smoker drags on the cigarette. We're confident that you will be surprised by how much tar is removed after you try it for the first time. Just take a look at the image. It is an example of our smallest cigarette filter, the TarGard Mini, after being used with 4 - 8 cigarettes.

Quitting will always be the most healthy choice and TarGard does not change that fact. If you cannot or don't want to quit, try a TarGard cigarette filter. We're confident you'll see and feel the difference after a few weeks.

TarGard Customer Comments about Lung Effects

" ... I have been smoking since I was 16 years old (I am now 58 years old). As young people, we would ocassionally blow the cigarette smoke through a tissue for the fun of it. At this young age, I noticed, and knew even then that the "tar" collect by the tissue was something I would rather do with out.

I noticed a gentleman put his cigarette into a small, clear, discreet looking filter one day at a baseball game. It looked like a great idea to me from that very moment. I asked him how the filter worked, and he showed me, and raved about Targuard's effectiveness ... I have been using both the original at home, and the mini away from home. My lungs feel clearer, my smokers cough went away three weeks after I began using them, and two of my friends saw me, bought them, and swear by them as I do. I have been using "Targuard Filters" for 1 1/2 years now, and will continue using them as long as you make them. Great product"

"I am 66 years old and have been enjoying a pack a day since I was 21 years old. About 10 years ago I tried the targard filters and was so impressed with how it worked that I started purchasing them in a bag of 100. The tar that the capture is amazing! I have never had a smoker's cough and was worried about getting one. All my doctors say my lungs sound perfectly clear. They are amazed when I tell them I have been smoking for 45 years and have no smoker symptoms. I never smoke a cigarette without a Targard filter. Thanks, Targard, for you fantastic product that really works as advertised. I will continue to be a customer as long as I smoke. I use the clear model so it will remind me how much it is helping when I see all the tar that is captured."

"I have been smoking since I was eighteen and now I am sixty-five. When I was twenty-three my dad bought a Tar Guard filter. He didn't like cleaning it and so he gave it to me. I didn't mind cleaning it, but I lost it and because I couldn't find where to buy another one, so I went without one for thirty years. During that time I was smoking two to three packs a day and developed lots of respiratory infections and a terrible smokers cough. I tried to quit several times but was always unsuccessful.

Then, in the mid '90s, I started rolling my own cigarettes from pure natural tobacco, in an effort to avoid all the chemicals in store-bought cigarettes. Unfortunately, the smoke was so strong that it burned my throat. Then, while shopping in Walgreens one day, I saw the Tar Guard filters on sale and bought one. It was the permanent kind that you can see through. I like that kind because I can see what isn't going into my lungs.

Not only did it help to cool down the smoke from my hand rolled cigarettes, but it did something else too! For the first couple of weeks of using it I coughed up all kinds of gunk from my lungs and then...my cough went away, forever! Since then I have not had any serious respiratory infections, no cough, and none of the respiratory problems that so many of my smoking friends have.

My doctor is always so amazed at how clear my lungs are, being that I am a life long smoker. I know that biggest reason is that I have been using the Tar Guard filter. I still enjoy lighting up, and I buy all my Tag Guards on line. I am always telling my smoking friends, that cough and wheeze, to get themselves a Tar Guard filter or quit smoking. It really works! Thank you Tar Guard!"
