Definition - What does Endorphin mean?

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.

Kinkly explains Endorphin

Because of the high and euphoria one can achieve when endorphins are released by the body, people have chased after getting that “endorphin rush.” This can be achieved through different activities, such as exercise and sex. Spicy food, like chili peppers, may also produce endorphins. Endorphins enhance feelings of pleasure and reduces pain.
