What are hormones, and what do they do?

Hormones are basically chemical messengers produced by the endocrine glands. These hormones travel through the bloodstream and bind to specific receptors on target cells, which then causes a change in the cell. This change can be anything from stimulating the cell to divide and grow to the secretion of a protein. In other words, hormones control just about everything in our bodies, including growth and development, metabolism, reproduction, mood, and sexual vitality.
