Microzine: Beta-endorphin

I chose to focus my zine on one particular type of endorphin: beta-endorphin. I’m interested in endorphins in general because I’ve heard a lot about them, especially with regards to ‘runner’s high’, so I wanted to research them and get a better understanding of how they work.

I tried to give a general overview of what beta-endorphin is, what it does and how it works. I a couple of ‘fun facts’ as well in a (hopefully successful) attempt to not become to monotonous.

Most of the zines on Small Science Collective used hand drawn illustrations rather than photographs or clip art, so I tried to incorporate that as best I could (DISCLAIMER: I am not an artist). I also tried to include different colors to liven my zine up.

    Your zine is really nice; I especially enjoyed your fun facts. It was also really great that you were able to give us a view of what a simple amino acid looks like.
