Pituitary gland controls various biochemical processes which are essential for our well-being. There are various types of Pituitary gland hormones that are secreted in our body and each one of them has different roles.
One of the most important is Human Growth Hormone in our body (HGH). This is also called as ‘Magic’ Hormone and is secreted by the Pituitary Gland located in the brain.
This is also related to aging as it shows various signs of aging. According to the researches and scientists it is now clear that a person can remain fit, healthy and younger by controlling the levels of Human Growth Hormone in our body.
Aging in our body is related to the loss of Human Growth Hormone in the body and is thus controlled to certain level by increasing the secretion of HGH in the body. This can keep a body younger and healthy even after the age of 40 or 50.
However we cannot control the nature and it is natural that a person will age up. But the conditions such as immunity, muscle power, stamina, bone power, etc. can be improved to great extent by controlling HGH. In general if we want to stay younger and want to fight off the signs of aging, we can do this effectively by controlling HGH.
There are various other Pituitary gland hormones that are secreted in the brain. These have different functions in the body. Various other Types of hormones made by pituitary gland include the following:
- Growth Hormone: It stimulates childhood birth and is vital for maintaining healthy body composition and well-being in adults.
- Adrenocorticotropin: It stimulates cortisol production in the adrenal adults. This hormone is essential for maintaining blood pressure and glucose levels in blood.
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone: It stimulates thyroid gland, resulting in right regulation in metabolism, growth, energy and nervous system activity.
- Antidiuretic hormone: It regulates water balance and under-production can lead to diabetes insipidus or syndrome of inappropriate ADH.
- Prolactin: It increases milk production from the breasts after childbirth to facilitate nursing. Also, it affects sex hormone levels from testes in men and ovaries in women.
Another two hormones include Luteinizing hormone and Follicle-stimulating hormone. When the former regulates estrogen in women and testosterone in men, the later promotes sperm production in men and proper ovulation in women.
