Glandular epithelium is a type of epithelial tissue which covers the glands (both exocrine and endocrine) of our body.Their main function is secretion.Both endocrine and exocrine glands produce their secretions through the glandular epithelium via special cells called goblet cells.
Glandular epithelium in the reproductive tract is called endocervical glandular epithelium and helps in sexual functions by secreting lubricating fluid during sexual excitation.
The glandularepithelium also lines the intestine where it helps in the absorption of nutrients. Thus it aids in digestion.Thus glandular epithelium is a multifunctional tissue that combines with other tissues to perform vital functions of the body.
