The effect of tobacco use on EMPowerplus

Truehope participants often ask us how the use of tobacco could affect how EMPowerplus works in the body.

Tobacco is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, and its effects on the health of the mind and body are similar to that of other stimulants that we advise against using.

Any substance that stimulates the CNS will have a negative impact on CNS function and EMPowerplus effectiveness to some degree or another. Stimulants affect the operation of the CNS system by disrupting the bio-chemical state of the individual.

If you’re using tobacco and are trying to quit or would like to quit, visit the Canadian Lung Association website for information and tips.
