Exercise can help prevent relapses into cocaine addiction, claims a study. Individuals who are addicted to cocaine have altered neural, behavioural and physiological responses to stress. In addition, exercise has been shown to reduce stress hormones and elevate mood, which could assist in alleviating anxiety and negative emotions associated with withdrawal," reported the study published in the journal Behavioural Brain Research. Studies already have shown that aerobic exercise (also known as "cardio") is an effective strategy against many physical health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis, along with certain mental health issues, such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
