Adrenalin

ADRENALIN

 

Adrenalin is a hormone that is released in the body by fear from a fight or flight response to a dangerous or uncomfortable situation. When adrenalin is released the pulse rate accelerates and the heat pumps faster and stronger.

 

The happiness hormone dopamine is released when the danger has passed and this affects many people in the same way as euphoric feeling drugs.
