Epinephrine and the Fight or Flight Response

Epinephrine and the Fight or Flight Response

Epinephrine is a hormone secreted in time of stress by the adrenal glands. It is also known as the adrenaline. Nowadays it is being extracted and used to treat several diseases and human allergic reactions such as asthma, heart problems, and other disorders. The effects of the epinephrine in the body cover a large range and some of it is not known yet.

This neurotransmitter is related to Calm PRT, Kavinace, AdreCor, Balance D, and ExcitaPlus.

Everyone has the ability to become extremely alert and unimaginably quick response to stimuli that automatically triggers when faced to a very dangerous situation. The main reason behind it is due to the body’s secretion of adrenaline, otherwise known as epinephrine that suddenly triggers once faced in stressful situations.

This situation is popularly known as the body’s “flight or fight” response, and the main thing responsible for this is the hormone by the name epinephrine. Whether you like it or not, it prepares your body to be involuntarily prepared for whatever situations may occur, it activates all the human basic instincts of survival.

The process on how the epinephrine work may seem very complicated. Maybe you are wondering on how is it possible for the body to activate a “flight or fight” situation in as quickly as a split second. The reason is simple to explain, yet complicated to understand. The epinephrine has the ability to enhance the body’s production of energy, then activate all the main organs of the body to the full alert status, but for a cost – the body shuts down the less important processes such as digestion until the situation come back to normal.

This fight-or-flight response can be activated instantly and often unconsciously. Once the brain detected a sudden stressful situation, it triggers the adrenal glands to secrete epinephrine. But one cannot trigger this effect all the time; this effect is only triggered conditionally once the requirements are met, such as facing a dangerous situation.
