UNDERSTANDING THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM

The endocrine system is a system of ductless endocrine glands that secrete chemicals called hormones that circulate within the body via the bloodstream to affect distant organs. It does not include exocrine glands such as salivary glands, sweat glands and glands within the gastrointestinal tract.

In general, the endocrine system is in charge of body processes that happen slowly, such as cell growth. Faster processes like breathing and body movement are monitored by the nervous system. But even though the nervous system and endocrine system are separate systems, they often work together to help the body function properly.

What Is the Endocrine System?
The foundations of the endocrine system are the hormones and glands. As the body's chemical messengers, hormones (pronounced: hor-moanz) transfer information and instructions from one set of cells to another. Although many different hormones circulate throughout the bloodstream, each one affects only the cells that are genetically programmed to receive and respond to its message. Hormone levels can be influenced by factors such as stress, infection, and changes in the balance of fluid and minerals in blood.

 

 

Imperial Gold Maca may adapt to the body's needs and support menopausal health. It works through the hypothalamus and pituitary to bring about healthy, balanced hormone levels in the body. Black Cohosh, licorice root, don quai and soy products all contain weak plant hormones, (phytoestrogens).  Many women cannot manage their symptoms with these herbs effectively. Yet women feel the effect of Imperial Gold Maca usually within several days to several weeksThe key to effective results is consistent use on a daily basis without missing days.
Imperial Gold Maca
is not a hormone but a staple food herb that can be eaten as often as you would eat  any nutritious vegetable like  broccoli. Imperial Gold Maca allows a woman to produce her own hormones.

The best source of progesterone and estrogen is your own body. This species of Imperial Gold Maca may enhance your body's production of these hormones. It is safe,100% organic and naturally grown without pesticides, artificial fertilizers or chemicals, producing wonderful results in your body naturally. Imperial Gold Maca (Lepidium peruvianum Chacon) is an all natural organic herb food that nourishes the body very effectively. Order Maca

A gland is a group of cells that produces and secretes, or gives off, chemicals. A gland selects and removes materials from the blood, processes them, and secretes the finished chemical product for use somewhere in the body. Some types of glands release their secretions in specific areas. For instance, exocrine (pronounced: ek-suh-krin) glands, such as the sweat and salivary glands, release secretions in the skin or inside of the mouth. Endocrine glands, on the other hand, release more than 20 major hormones directly into the bloodstream where they can be transported to cells in other parts of the body.

The major glands that make up the human endocrine system are the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pineal body, and the reproductive glands, which include the ovaries and testes. The pancreas is also part of this hormone-secreting system, even though it is also associated with the digestive system because it also produces and secretes digestive enzymes. Although the endocrine glands are the body's main hormone producers, some non-endocrine organs - such as the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, thymus, skin, and placenta - also produce and release hormones.

The hypothalamus (pronounced: hi-po-tha-luh-mus), a collection of specialized cells that is located in the lower central part of the brain, is the primary link between the endocrine and nervous systems. Nerve cells in the hypothalamus control the pituitary gland by producing chemicals that either stimulate or suppress hormone secretions from the pituitary.

Although it is no bigger than a pea, the pituitary (pronounced: puh-too-uh-ter-ee) gland, located at the base of the brain just beneath the hypothalamus, is considered the most important part of the endocrine system. It's often called the "master gland" because it makes hormones that control several other endocrine glands. The production and secretion of pituitary hormones can be influenced by factors such as emotions and seasonal changes. To accomplish this, the hypothalamus relays information sensed by the brain (such as environmental temperature, light exposure patterns, and feelings) to the pituitary.

The tiny pituitary is divided into two parts: the anterior lobe and the posterior lobe. The anterior lobe regulates the activity of the thyroid, adrenals, and reproductive glands. Among the hormones it produces are:

  • Growth Hormone, which stimulates the growth of bone and other body tissues and plays a role in the body's handling of nutrients and minerals
  • Prolactin (pronounced: pro-lak-tin), which activates milk production in women who are breastfeeding
  • Thyrotropin (pronounced: thigh-ruh-tro-pin), which stimulates the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones
  • Corticotropin (pronounced: kor-tih-ko-tro-pin), which stimulates the adrenal gland to produce certain hormones

The pituitary also secretes endorphins (pronounced: en-dor-finz), chemicals that act on the nervous system to reduce sensitivity to pain. In addition, the pituitary secretes hormones that signal the ovaries and testes to make sex hormones. The pituitary gland also controls ovulation and the menstrual cycle in women.

The posterior lobe of the pituitary releases antidiuretic (pronounced: an-ty-dy-uh-reh-tik) hormone, which helps control body water balance through its effect on the kidneys and urine output; and oxytocin (pronounced: ahk-see-toe-sin), which triggers the contractions of the uterus that occur during labor.

The best source of progesterone and estrogen is your own body. This species of Imperial Gold Maca enhances your body's production of these hormones. It is safe,100% natural and grown without pesticides, artificial fertilizers or chemicals, producing wonderful results in your body naturally.
