Importance of Thyroid Gland:
One of the very important glands in the human body is the Thyroid Gland. Interestingly, it is in the shape of a butterfly and is located at the base of the throat (Adam’s apple). It plays a vital role in regulating body metabolism, use of lipids, etc.
It also plays a vital role in enabling the pituitary gland to function properly so as to regulate the body temperature, etc. So it works in close coordination with the pituitary gland and as per the indication given by the pituitary gland, it produces that particular quantity of hormones.
Any change in hormone level will cause serious impairment of the particular organ of the body which receives that hormone. That speaks of the importance of the Thyroid Gland in the body function.
It is therefore necessary that Thyroid Gland should be taken care of properly. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of the importance of this gland and the serious problems it could cause to the human body if it does not function well.
What causes its malfunctioning?
For it to function effectively, it requires proper amount of iodine. Lack of Iodine could cause the disease called ‘Goiter’. There are other reasons for the malfunctioning of this Gland. They are radiation, effects of pesticides or any other chemicals. Researchers have found out that stress and exposure to radiation also cause malfunctioning of the Thyroid Gland.
There are many prescription drugs to rectify any defect in the functioning of the Thyroid Gland. Some of these medicines are not free from side effects. So the safest method or approach is to use herbal or natural medicines.
As said earlier, Iodine is very much essential for functioning of the Thyroid Gland. Iodine is richly found in Sea Water. Another important ingredient required for this Gland is amino acids which are widely found in poultry birds and in fishes.
Researchers have been successful in finding a way for these herbal medicines to work in perfect harmony with the Thyroid Gland. These medicines rectify the malfunctioning of this gland and enable it to function normally.
There are many herbal medicines and Nori is one such popular nutrient and rich sea vegetable. In Nori herbal medicine, the Bovine Powders of Thyroid and Adrenaline are so scientifically blended that it will certainly ensure that the Thyroid Gland functions most effectively.
