The pancreas is a digestive gland found behind the lower part of the stomach and is about 8 inches long. As previously mentioned, the body works as a series of systems, with the pancreas being a part of the digestive system. The pancreas has two main roles. It produces hormones, like insulin, which controls the balance of glucose between the blood and the rest of the body, and it also produces digestive enzymes which help to break down foods in molecular form the body can utilize. The main enzymes produced by the pancreas are: lipase (used to digest fats), protease (used to digest proteins) and amylase (used to digest starches and sugars.)
"I lost my Father to Pancreatic Cancer, so this one was easy for me to get into production. I loved him and feel that he could be here today with all of the knowledge we have now on the Pancreas, its functions and preventative supplements." Bruce Brightman-founder of LifeSource Vitamins
For the pancreas to perform it's role in the digestive system, certain nutritional needs must be met. For example, key minerals such as calcium, chromium, zinc, nickel, magnesium, molybdenum and cobalt must be in balance. Key Benefits:
- Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels already
within the normal range to minimize cravings
- Promotes a healthy pancreas and endocrine system
- Promotes circulation and blood flow to the extremities
- Encourages oxygen-rich blood flow to optical fibers
- Helps maintain systemic balance
- Promotes digestive, liver and cardiovascular
To see if these key minerals, as well as many more, are in balance simply order BioTrac urinary test. This test will give a complete analysis of minerals, heavy metals, systemic pH and organ nutritional health. A score below 60 on the pancreas will indicate the pancreas' nutritional needs should be addressed. LifeSource’s Pancreas Formula is uniquely designed to give highly concentrated extracts to support pancreatic function and supplement pancreatic enzyme production. The Pancreas Formula offers added benefits to anyone already using Diabin, LifeSource’s homeopathic nutraceutical product designed to address the nutritional needs of Type I or II diabetes.

Pancreatic insufficiency is the
inability of the pancreas to secrete the enzymes needed for digestion. Having
an insufficient amount of pancreatic enzymes is very common among people with
pancreatic cancer. When the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to break
down food, pancreatic enzyme products are needed. Doctors sometimes prescribe
digestive enzymes, including pancreatic enzymes, to patients who have
conditions that cause poor absorption. These products help improve digestion
and absorption of food.
Some of the conditions that may
cause pancreatic insufficiency include surgery (Whipple procedure or total
pancreatectomy), blockage or narrowing of the pancreatic or biliary duct (the
tubes that carry pancreatic juice or bile), pancreatic or duodenal tumors,
cystic fibrosis or pancreatitis.
Some of the symptoms associated with
pancreatic enzyme insufficiency include:
- feelings of indigestion
- cramping after meals
- large amounts of gas
- foul smelling gas or stools
- floating or greasy/fatty stools
- light-colored, yellow or orange stools
- frequent stools
- loose stools
- weight loss
Patients with these symptoms should talk with their medical team immediately, always better safe than sorry!
