Hormone of endorphins

Endorphins are hormones human body releases when it feels pain or stress. Endorphin release generally happens when you:
*Are injured
*Experience stress
*Endorphins help relieve pain, reduce stress and improve human sense of well-being.

They’re released during pleasurable activities such as exercise, massage, eating and sex too. These endorphins interact with the receptors in the brain that reduce human perception of pain.

Endorphins, also known as endogenous opioids, are groups of protein chains called peptides. Endorphins are primarily made in the hypothalamus and pituitary glands, though they may come from other parts of the body as well. Endorphins are a type of neurotransmitter, or messenger in the body. They are often called “feel-good” chemicals because they can act as a pain reliever and happiness booster.
