Adrenalin (blood)

Adrenalin is a type of catecholamine, which are small molecules made by nerve tissue, the brain and the adrenal gland.

The main catecholamines are dopamine, noradrenalin, and adrenalin.

Catecholamines help the body respond to stress or fright and prepare the body for "fight-or-flight" reactions by increasing the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, muscle strength, and mental alertness. They also lower the amount of blood going to the skin and increase blood going to the major organs, such as the brain, heart, and kidneys.
