Why are hormones important?
Hormones are responsible for transporting important information to all cells in the body. Certain hormones affect certain target cells, through receptors, relaying critical information specific to that cell's function. All hormones are created by different endocrine glands and travel through the bloodstream to different tissues and organs. Each hormone has its own goal, carrying a critical message to their target cells in these different tissues and organs.
The body's hormones are responsible for regulating and balancing almost every major bodily function. Hormones impact your growth and development, control your mood, determine how you deal with stress, influence how the body digests food, and so much more!
