Endocrine System

I am looking for a list of medicinal plants that activate endocrine gland.

The endocrine system is comprised of several complex glands that regulate the body in multiple ways. Examples of some of the glands are thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, pineal, etc. Each gland would have several specific herbs for that gland.

However, herbs that taste bitter tend to have a gentle endocrine stimulating effect through a reflexive response. Examples are dandelion root, yellowdock root, gentian root or wormwood.
