Hormones are chemicals produced in the endocrine glands of the body, which are transported via the blood to the various target organs. These are known by various names like chemical messengers, chemical mediators or first messengers. The hormones are transported to far-flung areas of the body and their action is multi-disciplinary.

There are various organs that serve as endocrine glands and secrete hormones, such as pituitary glands, pancreas, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, adrenal gland, ovary and testis. Out of these HGH is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland.
