Adrenaline: Acute Response

Adrenaline is your ‘fight-or-flight’ hormone - it primes your body to deal with potential threats and stressors.

Whereas your previous trait looked at resting levels of adrenaline in the bloodstream, your latest Adrenaline: acute response trait analyzes your body’s ability to raise adrenaline levels in response to short-term physical and psychological stressors.

Exercise is one such physical stressor, and your blood levels of adrenaline rise acutely in response to physical activity of a sufficient intensity.

As we’ll explore in this article, the actions of adrenaline are beneficial during exercise, as they enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to working muscles.
