PARATHYROID HORMONE

a hormone dispersed by the parathyroid glands whenever blood-calcium levels are minimal. It encourages dissolution of bone tissue and absorption of calcium in the intestines, thus escalating the concentration of such minerals in the bloodstream. Hence, combined with calcitonin, it engages in calcium management. Commonly referred to as parathyrin.

PARATHYROID HORMONE: "Parathyroid hormones are the hidden cause of many physical, emotional, and cognitive ailments, which doctors often ignore."
