The adrenal gland produces a variety of hormones, and some of them have been shown to be flirts in the body's reaction to stress. Meeting a sudden challenge, adrenalin is released into the bloodstream and keeps alert every muscle. Other adrenal hormones regulate otlier body systems, including the release or retention of water, perhaps in response to other kinds of stress.
