From top to bottom, the body consists of glands that make up the endocrine system. These endocrine glands produce and release hormones, which help control and coordinate bodily functions. Hormones are essential to keeping the body balanced. When needed, hormones are released from the endocrine glands to regulate energy levels, growth and sexual development, balance of internal body systems, and bone and muscle strength.
