As humans, we’re always looking to challenge ourselves with new things. Maybe we push ourselves in the gym, learn a new language, or even apply for jobs that we never thought we’d get. Another way we challenge ourselves is with adrenaline. Everyone starts at different spots; some of us start with roller coasters, while others go cliff diving. The more we do activities like this, the more we love the feeling of adrenaline. The great thing is that not only are these activities fun, but they actually have health benefits as well. Here are some of the ways that adrenaline helps your body.
Resistant to Pain
Adrenaline affects your body’s ability to sense pain. This is because when you feel adrenaline, your body naturally wants to keep you alive and away from danger. For that reason, your body is more resistant to pain, at least until after the adrenaline wears off.
Adrenaline helps you to push past your usual boundaries when it comes to strength. When your body feels in danger, you no longer have that voice inside your head that says you can’t do something. Instead, you’re able to lift things you usually can’t or move heavier objects.
In situations that your body feels endangered, your pupils enlarge. This is because the hormone’s evolutionary intention is to prepare your body to fight against a threat. When your pupils enlarge, your vision improves.
Boosts Immune System
These fast feelings of adrenaline can actually boost your immune system. This is because these feelings of alert actually help you to fight off infections, as well as increase the number of antioxidants circulating in your system.
As you can see, adrenaline has many health benefits. If you’re searching for adrenaline, make sure to book one of our Cabo extreme adventures.
