The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland with a butterfly-shape that lies in the base of the neck. It has a very important role in the organism because it releases two hormones that affect the whole metabolism.
It secretes thyroxine, thyroid most important hormone which affects almost all of the body systems and triiodothyronine. Triiodothyronine is the second thyroid hormone that affects almost every physiological process in the body such as body temperature, growth, metabolism and heart rate.
You can easily locate this gland. It lies in front of your neck below the Adam’s apple and the top of your breastbone.
