What exactly is a hormone?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Hormones are chemical messengers produced by various glands in the endocrine system and released into the bloodstream. These molecules travel throughout the body, regulating numerous physiological processes and maintaining homeostasis. Hormones play a crucial role in controlling growth and development, metabolism, reproduction, mood, and stress response, among other functions. They act on specific target cells or organs, where they bind to receptors and initiate cellular responses that help coordinate and regulate various bodily functions. Imbalances in hormone levels can lead to various health issues and symptoms, highlighting the importance of maintaining hormonal balance for overall well-being.
