About this unit

You can’t really point to any single organ as “the endocrine system,” because they’re actually a family of glands that secrete hormones into the body. Hormones travel through the bloodstream to interact with specific target cells and organs. This signaling system helps to keep the entire body well-balanced and on the same page.
