Vasopressin -

Vasopressin acts mainly at the kidney and stimulates resorption of water and electrolytes by the distal tubules and thereby reduces loss of water through urine (diuresis)

- wherein

Hence, it is also called as anti-diuretic hormone (ADH).

 

 

Osmoreceptors -

Osmoreceptors in the body are activated by changes in blood volume, body fluid volume and ionic concentration.

- wherein

An excessive loss of fluid from the body can activate these receptors which stimulate the hypothalamus to release antidiuretic hormone (ADH) or vasopressin from the neurohypophysis.
