The thyroid plays a key role in your body. It’s like a conductor, directing every cell in your body, including those in the central nervous system, heart, liver, kidneys, skin, bone and muscles.
Among its most important functions is the control of the rate of metabolism, which of course impacts weight. Thyroid hormones tell every cell in the body how quickly, efficiently and effectively to do their jobs, including how quickly you think, lose weight and detox. Without a well-functioning thyroid gland you may experience a myriad of symptoms, the most common of which include weight gain, fatigue, muscle pain and hair loss.
