WORKOUT CURES DEPRESSION - KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
September 27, 2014
HAVING MUSCLES PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING DEPRESSEDThe autumn is here and in Sweden (where we live) the days are getting shorter. The abscense of natural daylight makes many of us quite blue at this time of year. So, its really comforting to know that the latest medical studies shows that having muscles prevent you from getting depressed. This is how it works: Having muscles, increaeses your level of an enzym called KAT. KAT breaks down a substance called Kynurenin. Kynurenine is a waste product and turnover of the hormones serotonin and melatonin and vitamin niacin. By itself, Kynurenine is inoperative but its decomposition products are neurotoxic, that is harmful to neurons. If the Kynurenine reaches the brain, it might make you depressed. Since having muscles increases your level of KAT which breaks down Kynurenin and prevents it from making you feel depressed.So - keep on working out - its really good for you!
