The pituitary gland is a small pea-sized gland found at the base of your brain that plays a major role in regulating vital body functions and general wellbeing. It is referred to as the body's "master gland" because it controls the activity of most other hormone-secreting glands, including the thyroid and adrenals, the ovaries and testicles.
