Hormones are chemical messengers which dictate how we respond to various events in our lives. These hormones are secreted by endocrine glands. Once secreted, they travel in your bloodstream to various tissues and organs where they stimulate the organ or tissue to perform a particular function. All the hormones together form the complex mechanism that governs our body’s response to various activities or stimuli. In a normal person, a state of hormonal balance or equilibrium exists and this balance supports various metabolic activities that sustain life.
The major endocrine glands are the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid, adrenal glands, and the pancreas. Some of the most important hormones in the human body are growth hormone, testosterone, oestrogen, thyroid hormone, insulin, glucagon and others. The various processes of the human body that are influenced by hormones include:
- Growth and development
- Metabolism of various nutrients
- Sexual function
Hormones are special and require only a small amount of a particular hormone to cause big changes in the cells and sometimes the whole body. Any fluctuation in the level of hormones can cause significant changes in the body.

Krill oil is essentially a hormone-free supplement with a consistent composition of antioxidant that does not only keep estrogen levels under strict check but is also responsible for balancing mood swings, reducing stress and preventing lack of energy that are the most frequently-observed phenomenon associated with hormonal alterations. While it does not interfere with contraceptive pills, doctors recommend using Krill oil as an alternate to conventional medicines against cramps and muscular pain during menstruation in women.
