  • How Hormones Effect the Metabolism

    How Hormones Effect the Endocrine System Introduction: The endocrine system primarily relies on the negative feedback mechanism. The endocrine system influences metabolic activities by sending out chemical messengers through the blood called hormones. Once released into the blood these hormones are transported throughout the body. The effects of these hormones are wide spread and vary from reproduction, growth and development, immunities, maintaining electrolyte levels, water and nutrient balance...
