How Adrenaline Works

  • Glucose is released by the liver to help the muscles work
  • Breathing gets faster so that extra oxygen can transform the glucose into energy
  • The heart beats faster to get the oxygen to the muscles
  • Blood is diverted away from the digestive system
  • Muscles tense ready for action
  • Skin changes occur due to the bodies increased activity e.g. red face/sweating
  • Blood drains away from the higher to the lower more instinctive part of the brain affecting rational thinking
  • The body is preparing for the fight or flight response
