Expert Answer:

Endocrine glands are ductless glands of the endocrine system that secrete their products, hormones, directly into the blood rather than through a duct. The main endocrine glands include the pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, and adrenal glands. The glands of the endocrine system and the hormones they release influence almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies.
