Adrenaline: Baseline Level

You’ve probably heard of adrenaline before. A scary movie, loud music and intense exercise are all often described as “getting the adrenaline pumping”.

Adrenaline (also called epinephrine) is the body’s “fight-or-flight” hormone. It prepares us to encounter (‘fight’) or escape (‘flight’) a threatening situation. Accordingly, adrenaline dilates our airways, increases our heart rate, elevates blood glucose levels and diverts blood to skeletal muscle, all of which allow us to react quickly to a perceived threat.
