Understanding Pineal Gland

Pineal Gland

Pineal Gland

The Pineal gland is found in epithalamus, and a small endocrine gland. It closely resembles the shape of a tiny pine cone. The Pineal gland is the source of melatonin, and a hormone derived from tryptophan. This regulates the circadian rhythm (sleep-cycle). The circadian rhythm is a biological process that oscillates on typically 24 hours.

Endocrine System

The pineal gland is connected with Endocrine system. The Endocrine System influences the beats of the heart, and the growth of bones and tissue. Importantly, the Endocrine system, is often the source of thyroid problems, diabetes, sexual disorders, and other hormonal disorders.

Disorders from the Pineal gland

Disorders from the pineal gland are very rare. The Endocrine system has a large array of functions and a disorder may come from the Endocrine system. Even though the pineal gland is part of the Endocrine glands, most often the pineal gland is not the sorce of the problem. Typically the source of the problem comes from one of the other glands in the Endocrine system.
