Blood covers every corner of the body. The normal operation of the human body is inseparable from the blood. Muscles after exercise can "purify" the blood like the kidney and liver.

Studies also show that muscle can convert the stress marker kynurenine into kynurenic acid by exercise. While, high levels of kynurenine are often measured in the blood of people with depression and other psychiatric disorders. By exercise, converting kynurenine into kynurenic acid in the muscles to reducing blood kynurenine levels, may have a protective effect on the brain.
