Adrenalin or Adrenaline

Adrenalin / Adrenaline

A hormone secreted by the adrenal glands [=one small gland above each kidney]. Adrenalin wakes one up by constricting the skin vessels and increasing the BSL “Blood Sugar Level” thus allowing more blood with higher sugar to the brain and muscles. This better prepares the person for a fight or flight situation.
