1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Phospholipids are an important structural component of membranes within the cells of our bodines.
Also, specialized molecules in the blood have outer layers of phospholipids. Our bodies construct phospholipids from the nutrients we consume. Hormones are specialized molecules which travel through the bloodstream to affect other cells.
