Hormones are chemicals that are synthesized by the endocrine glands to control and regulate the activities of certain body cells and organs.
The hormones act as a messenger as well as a regulator.

The thyroid gland secretes Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). The function of thyroxine is to control the rate of metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in the body.
