Hormones are the chemical messengers that tell the cells in our bodies to function properly in the production of enzymes and structural proteins. These pathways produce energy, govern gene expression, and build and repair our physical structures. This communications system includes hypothalamic and pituitary hormones… thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones… and neurotransmitters. Functionality is based on a messenger molecule traveling to a specific cell surface receptor and activating that receptor, which instructs the genetic structures within that cell to manufacture the appropriate substances.
