Dr Oz: What is a Thyroid?
Dr. Oz chose a group of three women to be his “Assistant of the Day” as he explained the surprising reason you might be gaining weight. Your thyroid is a tiny organ in your neck, but it has a profound impact on your health. When it is functioning properly and releasing the right amount of hormones you will be filled with energy to fly like a butterfly, which is fitting since your thyroid happens to be shaped like a butterfly. Dr. Oz says a healthy amount of thyroid hormones will provide you with energy, good metabolism and a healthy body temperature.
