One hormone that needs a mineral is the thyroid hormone. It needs iodine to function and it will not work at all without it as part of the molecule. A persons' cells need it for growth.

Some minerals act as co-enzymes and hormones will not work well without them. Zinc is needed for estrogen to work well.
