THE CATECHOLAMINES

ADRENAL HORMONES
The CATECHOLAMINES are produced and metabolized in the ADRENAL MEDULLA.

The two most common catecholamines are:
1. EPINEPHRINE
2. NOREPINEPHRINE

These catecholamines are also called "EMERGENCY HORMONES" as they increase the ability of the body to respond to stressful situations.

They elevate blood pressure, increase glucose concentration in the blood stream and control a series of biochemical processes.
