Definition - What does Endorphin Rush mean?

An endorphin rush refers to the increase in endorphins as a result of exciting or stressful situations, and other stimuli, including chili peppers. Endorphin comes from the term endogenous morphine. It is produced by the pituitary gland and the nervous system. This implies that endorphin is morphine-like in how it affects the body. It inhibits pain. It also makes a person feel euphoric.

Kinkly explains Endorphin Rush

The endorphin rush can feel so good that people try a lot of things to achieve it. The more risky ones start off with seeking excitement. Excitement is good as long as risks are calculated and there are safety measures implemented. Remember to always take calculated risks when seeking an endorphin rush. Otherwise, it might be a better idea to just have sex or eat a raw chili pepper.
