Thyroid is a butterfly shaped gland located in the neck of humans. It produces two hormones – T3 and T4 which regulate multiple functions of the body including metabolism, energy generation and mood control.

If the thyroid gland does not produce enough levels of T3 and T4, a condition called hypothyroidism, a person may experience weight gain, lack of energy, depressive mood, dry skin and some other ailments. 2% of population suffer from hypothyroidism.
