What are the Adrenal Glands and their role with Stress?

You may have heard of the adrenal glands with its well known stress related hormone, adrenaline, also known as epinephrine. 


For a start, our stress response known as the flight or fight response is activated by our brains: “After the amygdala sends a distress signal, the hypothalamus activates the sympathetic nervous system by sending signals through the autonomic nerves to the adrenal glands. These glands respond by pumping the hormone epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) into the bloodstream.”

But your adrenal glands do more than that,

 “Adrenal glands produce hormones that help regulate your metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, response to stress and other essential functions.”

When you get into the fight and flight response, the hormones relating to stress can have differing effects on your body such as:


  • Heart rate. Your heart beats faster to bring oxygen to your major muscles. During freezing, your heart rate might increase or decrease.
  • Lungs. Your breathing speeds up to deliver more oxygen to your blood. In the freeze response, you might hold your breath or restrict breathing.
  • Eyes. Your peripheral vision increases so you can notice your surroundings. Your pupils dilate and let in more light, which helps you see better.
  • Ears. Your ears “perk up” and your hearing becomes sharper.
  • Blood. Blood thickens, which increases clotting factors. This prepares your body for injury.
  • Skin. Your skin might produce more sweat or get cold. You may look pale or have goosebumps.
  • Hands and feet. As blood flow increases to your major muscles, your hands and feet might get cold.
  • Pain perception. Fight-or-flight temporarily reduces your perception of pain.”
