is formed by an amount of glands that produce hormones, word of Greek
that means to stimulate) and that is substances that regulate and control the
of the body.
We have two types of glands, the exocrinas and the endocrinas, the glands exocrinas count on own conduits in which they spill its secretions so that they arrive thus at the outside of the body or other internal organs, among them are the salivary ones, sudoríparas and the
The glands endocrinas, also called of internal secretion, do not have own conduits, the hormones and other compounds that they secrete, happen directly to the blood that is in
to transport them to all the internal organs. Between these glands they are the hipófisis, the
, the suprarrenales and the testicles and ovaries.
gland that is endocrina and exocrina as well, is the páncreas, that in fact are like two organs in one. Most of the páncreas secretes digestive juice that arrives at the thin
through the pancreático conduit,
dispersed between the exocrino glandular weave there are microscopic groups of cells endocrinas that produce
and other hormones. In the páncreas it
between 2. 000. 000 and 1. 800. 000 of these conglomerates that are called small barren islands of Langerhans.
More than 100 hormones they are secretadas by the glands and
one of them exerts its influence only in the cells to which it goes destined and that counts on special receivers able to recognize their molecular structure, this is one of the so many wonders and mysteries of the human body.
Most of the
and cycles of the human body they are controlled by hormones, these chemical messengers and although the
, the kidneys and the heart, produce some of them, the majority takes place in the hypothalamus and the hipófisis that are the masterful glands:
the hypothalamus, that controls the
secretions of the hipófisis, temperature, hunger, thirst and impulses.
the hipófisis, that regulates the growth of the bones and governs the
of other glands endocrinas.
, that controls the rate of the metabolism and the corporal
and the paratiroides, that regulate the
level in the blood.
the thymus is another gland that governs in the
the production of

the suprarrenales, that control the balance of salts and water and contribute to prepare to the organism for an emergency, like
scare, unusual pressure, intense pain or serious
gland is the páncreas, ordered to regulate the sugar level in the blood.
the pineal gland, is another one of the existing ones in our body and it thinks that it is related by the reproduction.
Other glands that produce very
hormones, are. The testicles in the man and the ovaries in the women, who control the
in men and women.
