Our Pancreas is talked about a lot these days – because it produces Insulin.  Which is totally true.  A healthy pancrease is definate piece to the puzzle of weight loss and health.  The pancrease is connected to your gallbladder and the digestive system.  The pancrease produces insulin but also makes lipase (to break down fats), proteases (to break down proteins) and amylase (to break down carbohydrates).

 

A lot of people who suffer from pancratitis have pain and frustration.  It is far easier to keep a healthy pancrease healthy than heal one.

 

Most nutritional experts who talk about weight loss discuss that higher protein diets and lower carb diets are healthier choices for blood sugar levels, insulin levels, cravings and the pancrease in general.  However what about the person who takes out sugars and does those things and doesn’t get the results their neighbor does ….. frustrating stress for sure.

 

This four day plan helps reset the pancrease as you come off helping the kidney’s work most efficently.

Why – because the lemon water is actually healthy for the pancrease.  The decreased or elminated processed foods.

A well-known effect of insulin is to decrease the concentration of glucose in blood.

Insulin also allows glucose to enter muscle and other tissue, works with the liver to store glucose and synthesize fatty acids, and “stimulates the uptake of amino acids,” according to Bowen. Insulin is released after eating protein and especially after eating carbohydrates, which increase glucose levels in the blood. If the pancreas does not produce sufficient insulin, type 1 diabetes will develop.

Unlike insulin, glucagon raises blood sugar levels. According to the Johns Hopkins University Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center, the combination of insulin and glucagon maintains the proper level of sugar in the blood.

The pancreas’ second, exocrine function is to produce and release digestive fluids. After food enters the stomach, digestive enzymes called pancreatic juice travel through several small ducts to the main pancreatic duct and then to the bile duct, according to the Medical University of South Carolina’s Digestive Disease Center. The bile duct takes the juice to the gallbladder, where it mixes with bile to aid in digestion.
