THE PANCREAS PRODUCES CHEMICALS THAT ARE CRUCIAL TO PROPER DIGESTION AND BLOOD SUGAR REGULATION
As an abdominal gland, it lies behind the stomach, with its head pointed toward the small intestine, and its tail pointed to the right. Both the exocrine and endocrine systems lay claim to this organ. The body's endocrine system regulates hormones and other substances through its direct access to the bloodstream, cells, and organs. The exocrine system works via ducts to digest food in the intestinal tract.
IMPORTANT HORMONES SECRETED BY THE PANCREAS INCLUDE INSULIN AND GLUCAGON
These maintain the appropriate levels of sugar throughout the body. The parts of the pancreas responsible for the production of hormones are the Islets of Langerhans, which are small clusters of cells separated from the exocrine functions. When unprocessed sugar needs to be converted into the kind of energy the cells use, it travels to the liver. There, glucagon breaks down the glycogen variety of sugar and releases its components into the blood. Then, insulin appears at the site of cells and, with the aid of patented GTF Chromium, it helps them easily absorb the sugar. This is what keeps non-diabetic's blood sugar levels from getting too high or too low.
THE PANCREAS ALSO CREATES DIGESTIVE JUICES AS A MEMBER OF THE EXOCRINE SYSTEM
These fluids must break down nutrients that the stomach's acids weren't effective at metabolizing. Since the pancreas is so close to the small intestine, there are many ducts streaming from its head to carry the enzymes to the duodenum, the beginning of the intestine. The juices start out alkaline in the pancreas, but when they meet substances bathed in stomach acid in the duodenum, they become acidic. These enzymes include lipase, which digests fat, trypsin for protein, and amylase that works on carbohydrates. The resulting nutrients are distributed further down the small intestine.
MALFUNCTIONS OF THE PANCREAS INCLUDE DIABETES, PANCREATIC CANCER, PANCREATITIS, AND CYSTIC FIBROSIS
Any interference with insulin or enzyme levels wreaks havoc on the well-being of the body, whether it is due to genes or diet. To ensure a healthy pancreas, maintain good nutrition and supplement the diet with Pancreas-350.
