Endocrine Disorders

Posted by Optivida Health on

The endocrine system refers to the collection of glands of an organism that secrete hormones directly into the circulatory system to be carried toward a distant target organ. The major endocrine glands include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, hypothalamus, gastrointestinal tract and adrenal glands.

In addition to the specialized endocrine organs, many other organs that are part of other body systems, such as bone, kidney, liver, heart and gonads, have secondary endocrine functions. For example, the kidney secretes endocrine hormones such as erythropoietin and renin.

According to studies, Hemp Extract treats disorders affecting the endocrine system. One of its major effects in the endocrine system is its ability to decrease the level of cortisol in blood plasma. The lower level of this hormone results in reduction of stress and lessening of symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Most hormonal issues as well as chronic disease are caused or exacerbated by stress. By reducing the stress response, the endocrine system is able to regain balance and proper functioning.
