Hormones and Steroids

Hormones are chemical messengers that have diverse chemical structures including eicosanoids, steroids, amino acid derivatives, peptides, and proteins that are secreted into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. They are essential for every activity of life, including the processes of such as digestion, metabolism, respiration, tissue function, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood. Many hormones, such as neurotransmitters, are active in more than one physical process.

Hormones are the chemical signaling molecules that are secreted by the glandular system directly into the circulatory system which are carried further to the target organs. Steroids are four ringed organic compounds which are diverse chemical structures of hormones. Hormones and steroids act in a very organized way in our everyday life. They enhance the body working mechanism. The over dose or less production of  any one of them may result in various side effects leading to hormonal imbalance. They play a vital role in everyday activity of our life such as sleep, metabolism, digestion, growth, reproduction, excretion, lactation, movement, mood swings etcetera.
