Our bodies are controlled by the endocrine system and the hormones they produce.
The endocrine system helps to control the following body processes.

3.       Metabolism  [ the regulation of body energy levels]
4.       Reproduction [ the control of sexual and reproductive activities]
5.        Response to stimuli[ responsible for stress ,pain , emotions,]
Most of these hormonal functions are controlled by glands, [ some as energy levels, feelings, weight etc]
The body has 8 major glands that produce hormones namely:
1.       The  hypothalamus  [master gland,]
2.       Thyroid
3.       Pituitary
4.       Parathyroid
