Endorphin is short for “endogenous morphine.” It is a product of the pituitary gland and the central nervous system. Its main function is to transport pain signals. It also makes a person feel “high” and euphoric. The scientific community is still at a loss whether some activities make a person release more endorphins than other activities.
