The endocrine system has a variety of glands and organs. It includes the pineal gland, which helps to produce several important hormones including melatonin. Along with other things, melatonin helps with the sleep-wake cycles.

Another gland in the endocrine system is the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland secretes hormones and also controls hormone functions such as our temperature, thyroid activity, and growth during childhood.  Hormones are chemicals that carry messages from organs of your body to your cells.

The thyroid is also part of the Endocrine system. The thyroid manufactures the hormones that help control metabolism and growth.

Another organ in the system is the thymus. It helps to process a type of white blood cell known as T-lymphocyte. T-Lymphocyte helps cells recognize and destroy invading bacteria.

The Adrenal glands also belongs to the Endocrine system. The job of the Adrenal glands is making various hormones. Cells in the adrenal cortex, or the outer part of the adrenals, make the hormones cortisol and aldosterone. The cortisol hormone helps with blood pressure, the immune system, and stress.

Next is the pancreas. The pancreas produce enzymes, or digestive juices that are secreted into the small intestine to further break down food after it has left the stomach. The Pancreas also produces the hormone insulin and secretes it into the bloodstream in order to regulate the body's glucose or sugar level.
The endocrine system influences almost every cell and organ in the body, and is regulated by feedback almost the same way as a thermometer regulates the temperature in a room. 

The basic way the endocrine system works is through an elaborate structure of glands, each secreting hormones. By using a series of signals, the glands of the endocrine system create a communication network known as an axis. Endocrinologists study this system and its relation to diabetes, obesity and other endocrine conditions. Endocrine glands work similar to nerves in that they rely on various signals to operate, releasing the hormones depending on external and internal information. In this way, the system can regulate nearly every function of the human body from metabolism to general mood. Among the most important aspects of the endocrine system is growth and development of tissues and organs.

When a person studies how the endocrine system works, the branch of science is known as endocrinology.

Unfortunately, sometimes things go wrong with the endocrine system that can affect the way glands work and thereby the entire human body in general. A wide variety of disorders and diseases can develop either over the course of time or suddenly which cause drastic problems. Among the most common examples of these disorders are diabetes, hypothyroidism, obesity and the development of goiters.

I think the endocrine system is amazing, and without it, our bodies wouldn’t be able to function like they do now. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to sleep, we wouldn’t grow, we would have terrible metabolism, we would be super stressed all the time, and there really wouldn’t be much we could do about invading bacteria. That’s how important I think the endocrine system is.
