What are Hormones?

Hormones are located all throughout your body. They are signaling molecules that regulate physiology and behavior. They act as messengers in the bloodstream for other bodily functions to work correctly. Hormones are secreted from endocrine glands. Here are the main bodily functions that hormones affect. 

  • Development and Growth.
  • Cognitive Functions.
  • Regulation of Body Temperature.
  • Sex and Reproductive Functions.
  • Regulation of Metabolism.

An imbalance of hormones can overall affect behavior. It can be negatively affecting your daily routine and relationships. The negative effects on your physical health can lead to negative effects on your mental health.
