They are released mainly to stimulate an immune response when the cells detect any  foreign substances in the blood. Cytokines essentially consists of proteins, peptides, and glycoproteins. They are primarily released by immune system cells in order to initiate cell-to-cell interaction in order to generate an immune response.  For instance when white cells come into contact with pathogens(bacteria, viruses) they immediately release cytokines, which in turn communicate and activate other white blood cells to attavk the foreign invader.
