A hormone is a chemical substance produced by the endocrine glands in the body. These glands, such as the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, and others, release hormones into the bloodstream, where they travel to target tissues or organs and regulate various physiological processes. Hormones act as messengers, communicating between different parts of the body and coordinating activities to maintain balance and homeostasis. Hormones affect multiple processes, including:

Brain Health

Cardiovascular Health

Bone Density

Building and Maintaining Muscle

Skin Aesthetics

Insulin Sensitivity

Fine Motor Skills
