CXGb Pituitary/Pineal by Systemic Formulas
The brain’s five glands are responsible for oversight on the entire endocrine function: • Hypothalamus: Controls the autonomic nervous system, regulates homeostasis, and instructs the pituitary. • Anterior pituitary: Produces, stores, and secretes the hormones prolactin, human growth hormones, melanocyte stimulating hormones, thyroid stimulating hormones, adrenocorticotropic hormones, follicle stimulating hormones and luteinizing hormones. • Posterior pituitary: Stores hormones from hypothalamus, such as the antidiuretic hormones and oxytocin. • Intermediate pituitary: Secretes bioactive peptides. • Pineal gland: Regulates circadian and other rhythms via melatonin.
