Epinefrina y ejercita

Durante episodios de estrés, como al prepararse para una competencia, el cerebro indica a las glándulas adrenales que produzcan epinefrina o "adrenalina". La epinefrina aumenta el ritmo cardiaco. Esta respuesta del corazón proporciona más oxígeno a los músculos, lo que prepara al cuerpo para reaccionar. Como una respuesta a más largo plazo para el estrés, las glándulas adrenales segregan cortisol, que promueve la liberación de energía.
