Parathyroid hormone: The parathyroid glands secrete a substance called parathyroid hormone. This hormone is heavily involved in calcium metabolism. Calcium is vital to proper functioning of the heart, muscles, nerves, and bones.

Parathyroid hormone: The parathyroid glands secrete parathyrid hormone. This hormone is important in keeping calcium levels stable in the blood. It does this by removing calcium from bone, activating vitamin d and increasing calcium removal from the urine (so less calcium is lost in the urine).
