Have you ever heard that extreme sports hook? And about some people who call themselves or say they are “addicted to adrenaline? Yes? Not? Well, you know that in these cases the adrenaline plays an important role.
Extreme sports are for many people a form of scape for stress, bad mood or the perfect remedy for a bad day. In fact, there are those who say that it strengthens them mentally. However, they are not suitable sports for everyone, neither physically nor mentally. For this reason, it is necessary to know oneself before, to know our physical condition in order to be able to enjoy it as much as possible without risking more than necessary. So, at the end of the day, we must not forget that they are still extreme sports and what characterizes its variable degree of risk.
Precisely, this is what many of those who are initiated into these sports seek, the emotion of danger and it is the mentioned adrenaline that causes us to feel this emotion. Our body generates adrenaline as soon as we are exposed to the risk, this is at the same time generated by the adrenal glands, which are on top of our kidneys and provide great health benefits. For example:
- Increase our heart rate
- Increase our respiratory rate
- Our pupils dilate to have a better vision
- Increase blood pressure
- Increase our alertness and our defence system
- Activates our survival instinct
- It allows us to recover our glucose reserves
- Increase our ability to respond to a stress situation
- Decrease depression
These are just some of the advantages of adrenaline and we can still find much more. However, the effects vary depending on the person, as well as the dose of segregated adrenaline since, if we generate too much, it can be harmful to our body, especially if we discharge it in large quantities and quickly, and we may faint. However, we should be emphasized that sometimes it is used for a therapeutic purpose so that the heart continues to beat, for example. Although, whenever we have a good preparation and training does not have to produce any adverse effect.
Adrenaline is what keeps many looking for stronger and stronger emotions and they all become “addicted to adrenaline”. Although as we have said, as long as it is done with a head, there is no reason to have problems since human being releases adrenaline in daily life.
