The endocrine system controls many of your body’s functions through chemical substances called hormones. It creates sweat, saliva, mucus and digestive juices. The endocrine gland, otherwise known as the ductless gland, pour hormones into the blood stream. That is how the hormones reach the different locations of the body. Since the endocrine system produces sweat, it regulates the body’s temperature. The endocrine system is important for life because it controls development and growth during our childhood. Further, it helps the regulation of body functions in adulthood and during the reproductive process.
