From the authors: “The data also provide clear evidence for an exercise-dependent regulation of xenometabolites, opening perspectives for future studies about the physiological role of this largely unknown class of metabolites.” 

This study is highlighted as one of May's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
