Hormone is organic substance that is produced in one part of the multicellular organism and is able to exert effects on other, sometimes far distant, parts of the same organism. Hormones regulate a variety of physiological activities concerned with growth, maintenance, and reproduction of a constant internal environment (so called homeostasis). That is according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Dry and to the point. For my understanding hormones is a small very useful nuts and bolts produced in one place to make some useful work in another place in my body, ultimately working for harmony and status quo inside my precious organism!
