The thyroid gland is located near the front of the throat, just below the voice box. This butterfly shaped gland produces the thyroid hormones that regulate many important body functions. Even slight variations in thyroid gland activity can dramatically affect your health.
The thyroid is the master gland of metabolism. The function of the thyroid gland is to produce the hormones that drive your metabolic rate.
Thyroid hormones are like a throttle, boosting your body’s metabolic activity. When the thyroid gland is under active the internal metabolic furnace is turned down.
Therefore, an under active thyroid, or hypothyroidism will reduce your body’s ability to shift excess weight.
