The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck, just below Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland releases several hormones, which are collectively called thyroid hormones. The primary functions of these hormones are to regulate metabolism, influence growth and development, and body temperature.

What are the Functions of Thyroid Gland?

The thyroid is an endocrine gland which produces, stores and releases hormones into the bloodstream to make the hormones reach the body’s cells.  The thyroid releases two major hormones, which are Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) which allow our body cells to produce new proteins and regulates the metabolic processes of our body.

The pituitary gland in our brain produces Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) which regulates the functioning of the thyroid gland. The production of T3 and T4 hormones in our body is dependent on the amount of iodine we intake. That is why the human body needs iodine so that these hormones can work properly. But, too high or too low levels of thyroid hormones in the body can cause Thyroid Disorders.
