Interesting facts about adrenaline

  • Temporary stress can trigger your body to release adrenaline, a natural stress hormone. Our bodies go into fight-or-flight mode, with increased heart rate and blood pressure.
  • Also called epinephrine, adrenaline comes from two glands on top of your kidneys. It can give one extreme focus on the task at hand.
  • Adrenaline can boost blood flow to the brain and muscles. It stimulates the production of more sugar for body fuel.
