Homeostasis is the term used for the body’s ability to maintain a constant internal environment. This condition is important for the proper functioning of the body because the enzymes that control all metabolic activity essential for life are very sensitive to changes in their environment. This constant state must be maintained in spite of changing the external environment. It is important to emphasize that homeostatic reactions are inevitable and automatic if the system is functioning properly, and that a steady state or homeostasis may be maintained by many systems operating together.
