Adrenaline. It has wide-ranging effects on muscles, the circulatory system, and carbohydrate metabolism, preparing the body for action or what is commonly referred to as the ‘flight or fight’ response. Adrenaline increases heart rate, depth and rate of breathing, metabolic rate, and the conversion of glycogen to glucose. It also improves the force of muscle actions and delays the onset of fatigue.
