H1     Adrenocorticotropic / ACTH    
Stimulates adrenal cortex to secrete other hormones. 

H2     Aldosterone    
Increases re-absorption of sodium from urine and stimulates excretion of potassium. 

H3     Androgen    
A group of hormones that contribute to development of male reproductive system, e.g. testosterone.

H4     Antidiuretic Hormone / ADH/ Vasopress
Affects urine volume, stored in posterior pituitary. 

H5     Calcitonin / CT
Homeostasis of blood calcium and phosphate levels.

H6     Cholecystokinin / CCK
Inhibits secretion of gastric juice, decreases movement of GI tract, stimulates secretion of pancreatic juice rich in digestive enzymes, causes ejection of bile from gall bladder and opening of sphincters at common duct, and induces a feeling of satiety; may regulate feeding as a “stop eating” signal.

H7     Corticosterone    
Converted to aldosterone by aldosterone synthase.

H8     Corticotropin Releasing Hormone / CRH    
Stimulates release of ACTH involved in the regulation of food intake, energy homeostasis and stress response. 

H9     Cortisone/Cortisol    
Breaks down muscle. See also glucocorticoids.

H10     Epinephrine/Adrenaline    
Helps body resist stress by increasing heart rate, constricting blood vessels, accelerating respiration, decreasing digestion, increasing efficiency of muscular contractions, increasing blood sugar, stimulating cellular metabolism.

H11     Follicle-Stimulating Hormone / FSH    
Stimulates production of eggs and sperm. 

H12     Glucocorticoids    
Resistance to stress. 3 of them: cortisol, corticosterone, and cortisone. Makes sure enough energy is available; conversion of non-carbohydrates into energy; makes blood vessels more sensitive to vessel-constricting chemicals, anti-inflammatory. 

H13     Growth Hormone Inhibiting Hormone / GHIH / Somatostatin    
Inhibits secretion of acid and pepsin and release of gastrin, insulin and glucagons; inhibits motility of the gall bladder and intestine; suppresses secretion of lipase by the pancreas; slows absorption of nutrients from the gastro-intestinal tract. 

H14     Insulin    
Decreases blood sugar levels; prevents muscle from being broken down.
 
H15     Luteinizing Hormone
Stimulates sexual reproduction activities. 

H16     Melanocyte-stimulating Hormone / MSH    
Increases skin pigmentation. Inhibits fever and peripheral inflammation. Suppresses appetite. 

H17     Norepinephrine/Noradrenaline / NE
As epinephrine. 
     
H18     Oestrogen    
Develops and maintains female reproductive structures, especially endometrial lining of uterus, and secondary sex characteristics, including the breasts. Contributes to fluid and electrolyte balance. Important for bone density in both women and men. (See also 
Body Bio 2 Test Kit.)

H19     Oxytocin / OT
Contraction of uterus and mammary glands, breast feeding, orgasm, autonomic control of emotions. Stored in posterior pituitary. Lowers steroid synthesis in testes. 

H20     Parathyroid Hormone / PTH    
Helps to control homeostasis of calcium and phosphates in the blood.

H21     Progesterone / PROG    
Essential for the function of the female reproductive system; produced in the ovaries during the second half of the menstrual cycle, and also by the placenta during pregnancy; production declines during the menopause.Helps prepare endometrium for implantation of fertilised ovum and mammary glands for milk secretion. Can inhibit GnRH & PRL.

H22     Prolactin / PRL    
Initiates milk production by mammary glands. Excess prolactin can lead to absence of ovulation, lack of periods, excessive or spontaneous secretion of milk in women, and decreased sex drive, decreased sperm production and impotence in men. Women who cannot conceive often have high levels of prolactin. Enhances dopamine secretion. May be involved in the immune system. 

H23     Relaxin / RLX    
Relaxes symphysis pubis & dilates cervix towards end of pregnancy.

H24     Secretin     
Inhibits secretion of gastric juices, decreases movement of GI tract, stimulates secretion of pancreatic juice rich in sodium bicarbonate ions, and stimulates secretion of bile by hepatic cells of liver. 

H25     Testosterone    
Secreted primarily by the testicles of males and the ovaries of females, although small amounts are also secreted by the adrenal glands;  plays a key role in the development of male reproductive tissues such as the testis and prostate as well as promoting secondary sexual characteristics such as increased muscle, bone mass, and the growth of body hair; also involved in the prevention of osteoporosis.

H26     Thymosin    
Maturation of T lymphocytes.
 
H27     Thyroid-stimulating Hormone / TSH    
Stimulates thyroid gland to produce its hormones.

H28     Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone /TRH    
Stimulates anterior pituitary to secrete TSH.

H29     Triiodothyronine/ T3    Thyroid    Regulates metabolism by stimulating carbohydrate and fat breakdown, growth and development, and regulate activity of nervous system resulting in increased and more forceful heartbeat, increased motility of GI tract, increased nervousness. 

H30     Human Growth Hormone/Somatotropin    
Increases the growth rate of the skeleton and skeletal muscles in children and teenagers. In adults helps to maintain muscle and bone mass and promote healing of injuries and tissue repair; speeds up the breakdown of liver glycogen into glucose; excess production may cause diabetes mellitus.
