Adrenaline hormones and secretion

Adrenaline hormones, effects of over secretion and under secretion. what is the Adrenalin hormone?

Adrenaline hormones, also known as epinephrine hormones, are a group of hormones that are released by the adrenal glands in response to stress.

Adrenaline is the most well-known adrenaline hormone, but there are others, such as norepinephrine and dopamine.

Adrenal hormones play a vital role in the body’s fight-or-flight response. This is a physiological response that occurs when the body perceives a threat. When adrenaline hormones are released, they cause a number of changes to take place in the body, including:

  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Increased blood flow to the muscles and brain
  • Dilated pupils
  • Increased metabolism
  • Decreased blood flow to the skin and digestive system

These changes prepare the body to either fight or flee the perceived threat.

The Adrenal hormones are also involved in other bodily functions, such as regulating blood sugar levels and responding to exercise.

Here are some of the effects of adrenaline hormones:

  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure: This allows the body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and brain, which are needed for fighting or fleeing.
  • Increased blood flow to the muscles and brain: This helps the muscles to contract more forcefully and the brain to process information more quickly.
  • Dilated pupils: This allows the eyes to take in more light, which can improve vision in low-light conditions.
  • Increased metabolism: This helps the body to break down food more quickly and release energy into the bloodstream.
  • Decreased blood flow to the skin and digestive system: This diverts blood to the areas of the body that need it most, such as the muscles and brain.

Adrenaline hormones are a vital part of the body’s stress response system. They help the body to prepare for and respond to danger.

However, high levels of adrenaline hormones for prolonged periods of time can be harmful to the body. This is because adrenaline hormones can increase the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and other health problems.

Adrenaline, also known as epinephrine, is a hormone and medication. Adrenaline is normally produced both by the adrenal glands and by a small number of neurons in the medulla oblongata, where it acts as a neurotransmitter involved in regulating visceral functions” Our parents usually use to say of someone who is supercharged as having high Adrenalin.

back then I didn’t understand what it meant but now I fully grasped it.  we can also talk of adrenalin rush which refers to a sudden surge in reaction.

with this in mind, we can then say that the over-secretion and under-secretion of adrenalin hormone can have adverse effects on an individual.

so what are these effects of adrenaline hormone surge or under secretion?

Effects of over-secretion of adrenaline hormone

just like the rush hour movie of Jackie Chan, the frantic moments in it is pure adrenalin rush. wow, that’s amazing you say? so let’s take a closer look at the effect of adrenalin hormone surge

1. over secretion of adrenalin hormone increases excitement and can also lead to anxiety or bad feeling

2. At any time that the adrenaline is high which is over secretion it can definitely increase the blood pressure and heartbeat

3. Over-secretion of the Adrenaline hormone results in dilation of the pupil

4. With the adrenaline surge up and blood pressure increase it definitely turned to heavy breathing

5. Whenever you are tensed and the Adrenaline surge is up, it leads to general sweating

6. High adrenaline surge or secretion can lead to fear and constant anxiety.

7. Over-secretion of the Adrenaline hormone which results in pressure can cause heartbreak failure.

The effect of under-secretion of the adrenal hormone

If we are saying that over-secretion of the adrenal hormone causes lots of problems in the system, then there should be an effect of under-secretion.

So what are the possible effects of under-secretion of adrenaline hormone?

They are as follows

1. One possible effect of under under-secretion of adrenaline is that it leads to low blood pressure. Which is a total on the performance of the blood system.

2. Because the secretion of adrenaline is undersecreted it will result in a low heartbeat and a poor circulatory system.

3. The response rate to emergency in the life of a person with low or under secretion of the adrenalin hormone is slow 

What are the possible causes of adrenaline surge?

Adrenalin hormone is released mainly through the activation of nerves connected to the adrenal glands, which trigger the secretion of adrenalin hormone and thus increase the levels of adrenaline in the blood. This process happens relatively quickly, within 2 to 3 minutes of the stressful event being encountered\”

 Certain situations will trigger an adrenal rush, which is the release of hormones.

 Sometimes a tumor can cause the body to create too much adrenaline

Natural ways to stop over Secretion of the adrenalin hormone

yoga exercises, which combine movements with deep breathing.
