What are hormones and why are they important? Hormones are chemical messengers produced by the body and secreted throughout the body to regulate the activity of cells and organs. There are more than 75 hormones that affect your stress levels, metabolism, blood pressure, sleep, body temperature, mood, immune function and so many other aspects of your life. Your endocrine system is just one of the elements that keep the body working. For a person to be in homeostasis, the digestive, endocrine, immune, electrical, and detoxification systems all have to be in sync. Because they all affect each other, if just one system is off, the entire body can be out of balance.
