    ...high levels of hormones are present in their body/bodies.

    Adolescents will go through puberty, a stage where high levels of hormones are present in their body/bodies.

    Which word in bold should I use? Thanks.

    Assuming they have different bodies, I would use the latter.

    Same here, though the singular doesn't really bother me.
