What is the Thyroid?

It’s the kind of secret headquarters at the base of your neck for some kind of superhero somewhere. That would be your thyroid—small, butterfly-shaped, and very, very important. And here is your unsung hero: the gland that gives your body permission to set the rate for daily functions so that there is energy to live, love, and laugh. Main Task of Your Thyroid: How It Helps You Feel Good

The thyroid is a small and butterfly-shaped gland located at the front of the neck under the skin beneath the larynx. It’s part of the endocrine system and controls many of the body’s important functions by producing and releasing thyroid hormones, like thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

But if the thyroid gland is not doing its job right, it can affect how you feel and how your body works. Your metabolism might speed up too much or slow down too much, and that can affect how you feel and how your body works. So basically, when your thyroid isn’t happy, your whole body might feel a bit off.

How Do Thyroid Hormones Help Your Body?

The thyroid hormones act like conductors of regulators in your body, through which your heart beats in a passionate order, the mind can think with clearness, and the skin shows healthy glowing. They sort of do the acting of a conductor in an orchestra. This sets up perfect harmony; one looks over the shoulder of the other to make sure every cell can play its part in complete and perfect harmony.
