- PreviewThe endocrine system is a collection of glands that synthesizes and releases its hormones directly into the bloodstream. These hormones are responsible for fundamental and essential body processes, such as metabolism, tissue growth, homeostasis, sexual development, reproduction, immune regulation, cognitive function, and emotional stabilization. The endocrine glands are highly controlled by the nervous system and by the sensitive biofeedback mechanism that maintain well-balanced levels of hormones throughout the body.
