a: Acth ~
b: the first domino

What: "So what is happening in these stressful moments? Your pituitary gland begins to release adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH is like the first domino, triggering other glands to produce additional hormones. Once your body begins to produce ACTH, it is like someone pulling the fire alarm for your body."
