1 – Hormones are chemical substances that controls and regulates the activity of certain cells or organs.
2 – After being made in one part of the body , they travel to other parts of the body where they help control cells and organs do their work.
3 – Many hormones are secreted by special glands , such as thyroid hormone produced by the thyroid gland.
4 – Hormones are essential for every activity of life , including the processes of digestion , metabolism , growth , reproduction , and mood control.
5 – For example , insulin is a hormone that’s made in the pancreas. When it’s released into the blood , insulin helps regulate how the cells of the body use glucose for energy.

14 – Endocrine glands , which are special groups of cells , make hormones. The major endocrine glands are the pituitary , pineal , thymus , thyroid , adrenal glands , and pancreas.
15 – Hormones are powerful. It takes only a tiny amount to cause big changes in cells or even your whole body.
16 – These organs secrete hormone in microscopic amounts and it takes only very small amounts to bring about major changes in the body.
