The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine through a tube called the pancreatic duct. These enzymes help digest fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in food. The pancreas also releases the hormones insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream. These hormones help the body use the glucose it takes from food for energy. Normally, digestive enzymes do not become active until they reach the small intestine, where they begin digesting food. But if these enzymes become active inside the pancreas, they start "digesting" the pancreas itself. Pancreas healing and maintenance is a prerequisite for optimal health.
Why our Pancreas Auxiliary Formula Works
Our herbal supplement is intended to support a healthy pancreas function as well as assist with maintaining normal blood sugar levels. This is accomplished by normalizing production and secretion of enzymes and hormones in the pancreas with herbs. It also assists with maintaining normal blood sugar levels and improves the function of insulin receptors.
Difference Between Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis
Acute pancreatitis occurs suddenly and lasts for a short period of time but then usually resolves. If injury to the pancreas continues, chronic pancreatitis may develop. Chronic pancreatitis occurs when digestive enzymes attack and destroy the pancreas and nearby tissues, causing scarring and pain. The usual cause of chronic pancreatitis is many years of alcohol abuse, but the chronic form may also be triggered by only one acute attack, especially if the pancreatic ducts are damaged. The damaged ducts cause the pancreas to become inflamed, tissue to be destroyed, and scar tissue to develop.
Symptoms That Your Pancreas Needs Healing
The symptoms of pancreatitis include pain in the upper abdomen or pain that reaches to the back and other areas. It may be sudden and intense or begin as a mild pain that gets worse when food is eaten. Other symptoms may include swollen and tender abdomen, nausea, vomitting, fever, and rapid pulse. Severe cases may cause dehydration and low blood pressure.
People with chronic pancreatitis often lose weight, even when their appetite and eating habits are normal. The weight loss occurs because the body does not secrete enough pancreatic enzymes to break down food, so nutrients are not absorbed normally. Poor digestion leads to excretion of fat, protein, and sugar into the stool. If the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas (islet cells) have been damaged, diabetes may also develop at this stage.
