Ain't Life Gland?
Facts and educational information are included on the hangtag that comes with this pituitary plush toy.
Love, life and much more are all in your head -- thanks to the pituitary!.
Even though the pituitary is just a tiny little pea-sized nubbin dangling beneath your brain, he is known as the master gland because he controls all of the other endocrine glands (however, it is controlled, in turn, by the hypothalamus). His main functions include stimulating growth, regulating blood pressure, sex hormones, metabolism and water regulation. It’s one busy gland!
