Our Glands

The endocrine system is a complex collection of hormone-producing glands that control basic body functions such as metabolism, growth and sexual development. The amount of hormones produced by each gland is carefully balanced. Too much or too little of a certain hormone can have effects throughout the body and cause various endocrine disorders. Many of the hormones produced by the endocrine glands interact with each other to maintain balance.

Growth Booster Plus works in conjunction with the endocrine system to help keep GH (Growth Hormone) levels at their highest beneficial levels. This is done with the complex and precise array of ingredients which are within the Growth Booster Plus supplement. Stimulation is performed in a safe and natural way with no adverse side effects. Below is a brief description of the operation of each component of the endocrine system. read and enjoy!

The endocrine system consists of:

Pituitary Gland


Secretes hormones to stimulate the adrenals, thyroid, pigment-producing skin cells and gonads (ovaries and testes). Also secretes a growth hormone, an antidiuretic hormone, prolactin (a hormone which affects milk production after childbirth) and oxytocin (a hormone which plays a role in childbirth).

Hypothalamus

Secretes hormones that stimulate or suppress the release of hormones in the pituitary gland.

Pancreas

Secretes insulin and glucagon, which affect the body's absorption of glucose, the body's main source of energy.

Adrenal Cortex

Secretes hydrocortisone, which affects metabolism. Also secretes androgen hormone and aldosterone, which affect blood pressure and saline balance.

 

Thyroid Gland

 

 

Secretes thyroxin, triiodothyronine and calcitonin, which affect metabolism, body heat, and bone growth.

 

Parathyroid Glands

 

Secretes a parathyroid hormone, which affects calcium levels in the blood.

Gonads

The male and female reproductive glands (testes and ovaries). The testes secrete testosterone, which stimulate sperm production and other male characteristics. The ovaries secrete estrogen and progesterone, which affect many aspects of the female body, including menstrual cycles and pregnancy. The exocrine glands actually secrete their substances through ducts to particular areas. Examples of exocrine glands include the salivary glands and the sweat glands. The endocrine glands, on the other hand, secrete the hormones they produce directly into the bloodstream. Most endocrine glands are controlled by trophic (stimulating) hormones secreted by the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland, in turn, is controlled by hormones secreted by the hypothalamus in the brain.
