by Kenneth Kee
The Thyroid gland produces the thyroid hormone which plays an important part in the metabolism of our body.
The thyroid hormones regulate how the body breaks down the food we eat.

The pituitary gland in the brain actually controls how the thyroid works.
It is located at the base of the brain and produces thyroid-stimulating hormone.
