One of the largest endocrine glands, the thyroid influences almost every cell in our body. It is responsible for the regulation of our metabolism and weight by controlling the fat-burning process. Apart from this, thyroid hormones are also required for the growth and development of children and in nearly every physiological process in our body. Weighing somewhere between 20 and 60 grams, the thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland found inside your neck, right under your larynx or voice box.
