What are Hormones?
Hormones are chemicals which the body employs to send signals from one part of the body to another. Hormones, produced by one of several “endocrine glands” in the body, enter the blood circulation and deliver a signal to another gland or organ in the body. For example, “thyroid hormone” produced in the thyroid gland in the neck carries a signal to the heart to pump faster and to the brain to regulate body temperature. Over-production of thyroid hormone can cause, amongst other symptoms, a fast heart beat and a feeling of excessive heat.
