Mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids are the hormones secreted by cortex of adrenal gland.

Major mineralocorticoid is Aldosterone which regulates salt and water balance in the body by acting on DCT and CT of nephron

Major glucocorticoid is Cortisol which is involved in metabolism of glucose thus provides energy to the body.enlightened
