The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things. The endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is slightly imbalanced it can cause a variety of major health problems. Hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin, are extremely important and impact many aspects of your overall health.
