Hormones are your body's chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including:-Growth and development,Metabolism - how your body gets energy from the foods you eat,Sexual function,Reproduction,Mood. A chemical substance secreted by an endocrine gland or group of endocrine cells that acts to control or regulate specific physiological processes, including growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Most hormones are secreted by endocrine cells in one part of the body and then transported by the blood to their target site of action in another part, though some hormones act only in the region in which they are secreted. Many of the principal hormones of vertebrates, such as growth hormone and thyrotropin, are secreted by the pituitary gland, which is in turn regulated by neurohormone secretions of the hypothalamus. Hormones also include the endorphins, androgens, and estrogens.

Trophic Harmons

Trophic hormones are hormones that have other endocrine glands as their target. Most tropic hormones are produced and secreted by the anterior pituitary.[1] The hypothalamus secretes tropic hormones that target the anterior pituitary, and the thyroid gland secretes thyroxine, which targets the hypothalamus and therefore can be considered a tropic hormone. Tropic hormones from the anterior pituitary include:
1. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH or thyrotropin) – stimulates the thyroid gland to make and release thyroid hormone.
2. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH or corticotropin) – stimulates the adrenal cortex to release glucocorticoids.
3. Luteinizing hormone (LH) – stimulates the release of steroid hormones in gonads—the ovary and testes.
4. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) – stimulates the maturation of eggs and production of sperm.
5. Growth hormone (GH)has both tropic and non-tropic effects. Growth hormone's major tropic effect is it releases insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) from the liver, which causes bone growth."
