Hormones are a regulatory substance produced in an organism and transported in tissue fluids such as blood to stimulate cells or tissues into action. Hormones are vital for proper function of the body because the substances trigger the proper function. Some things that could go wrong with the body function when hormones are absent could be lack of growth and fertility.
