Juvenile hormone and ecdysteroids as major regulators of brain and behavior in bees

Bitter melon is available through most Filipino and/or Asian grocery stores, and some farmers markets. Because the plant is seasonal and is difficult to grow in the winter, it is sometimes sold frozen. The appropriate method of administering bitter melon is to make the extract from the fruit, vines, and leaves of the plant and either drink it as a juice, tea or administer it as a retention enema. Some say that drinking the juice or tea will result in the breakdown of the active components by stomach acids, therefore a retention enema would be a more efficient route.

The hormones secreted from each zone all resemble the molecule cholesterol and are called steroids , but each zone secretes slightly different hormones. The zona glomerulosa secretes hormones that influence the kidneys to excrete or retain sodium and potassium, depending on the needs of the body. These hormones are called mineralocorticoids (sodium and potassium are minerals ). The zona fasiculata secretes hormones called glucocorticoids that influence the metabolism of carbohydrates , including glucose . The glucocorticoids include hydrocortisone, corticosterone, and cortisone.

Prolactin is a protein hormone that in female mammals initiates and maintains the secretion of milk, the mammary glands having been previously prepared for this function by the action of other hormones. In the female rat, prolactin also maintains the secretion of the hormone progesterone , which is formed by the corpus luteum , an endocrine gland of the ovary . Thus, prolactin is a gonadotropin , its target being an endocrine gland. Moreover, the molecular structures of prolactin and growth hormone are similar, which may explain why they show some overlap in biological properties. In particular, administration of prolactin promotes some growth in many terrestrial vertebrates. Human growth hormone has prolactin-like luteotropic properties.

The ONLY purpose of the parathyroid glands is to regulate the calcium level in our bodies within a very narrow range so that the nervous and muscular systems can function properly. This is all they do. They measure the amount of calcium in the blood every minute of every day... and if the calcium levels go down a little bit, the parathyroid glands recognize it and make parathyroid hormone (PTH) which goes to the bones and takes some calcium out (makes a withdrawal from the calcium vault) and puts it into the blood. When the calcium in the blood is high enough, then the parathyroids shut down and stop making PTH.
