Washington DC : A new study has revealed about the ‘exercise hormone’ that promotes physical endurance. The study in mice shows that exercise causes muscle to release a peptide that builds the muscle’s capacity for energy production and increases physical endurance, allowing for longer and more intense exercise, reports ANI.

The findings establish that the peptide, called musclin, is an “exercise factor,” a hormone-like substance made by skeletal muscle in response to exercise and released into the bloodstream.  The study shows that increased levels of circulating musclin trigger a signaling cascade that improves muscle performance and promotes production of mitochondria in muscle cells.
