Throughout your body, an interconnected system of glands known as the endocrine system makes the hormones that affect processes from head to toe. Hormones travel in your bloodstream and work slowly to help regulate organs and tissues. Your health can be affected if your body produces too much or too little of a hormone or if your body doesn’t properly respond to hormones.
