Adrenal Gland News and Research

RSS
The adrenal glands are the part of the body responsible for releasing three different classes of hormones. These hormones cont, controlling the "fight or flight" response to stress, maintaining pregnancy, initiating and controlling sexual maturation during childhood and puberty. The adrenal glands are also an important source of sex steroids, such as estrogen and testosterone.
