(This kit does not come with a storage box. If required go to our test kit accessories section)
H1 Adrenocorticotropic / ACTH
Stimulates adrenal cortex to secrete other hormones.
Increases re-absorption of sodium from urine and stimulates excretion of potassium.
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.
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.
Breaks down muscle. See also glucocorticoids.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
