Located on either side of the windpipe just below the Adam's apple, the human thyroid is a small gland with a big job. Hormones properly known as 'thyroid hormones' are secreted by the thyroid gland, and have a wide variety of effects on the human body. These hormones are essential to everyday functions such as hunger management, body growth and development, and maintaining body temperature. During infancy, the proper release of these hormones from the thyroid is essential to brain development. All of EcoSmartDesigns' handmade, pewter charm jewelry designs are proudly made in the USA.
