The endocrine system based upon hormones

Hormones are organic substances produced in small quantities in one part of an organism (an endocrine gland), transported by the blood system to a target organ or tissue where it has a profound effect.

The endocrine system therefore produces chemical signals. Each hormone is different and they travel relatively quickly through the blood stream all over the body. Their effects may be very slow (e.g. growth hormone over years) or very fast (e.g. adrenaline which acts in seconds).
