Pancreas Support is an all-natural herbal formula that supports the pancreas, the kidneys and urinary tract, and digestion and liver function. Pancreas Support helps the body with pancreatic functions such as supporting healthy blood sugar levels and healthy digestion.
The pancreas is a vitally important and little understood part of the endocrine system. Just over five inches long and located behind the stomach in the upper left abdomen, the pancreas lies behind the lower part of the stomach and extends down towards the left kidney.
The pancreas has two primary functions: 1. It produces digestive enzymes to break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the small intestines. The pancreas is very connected with digestion and liver and gallbladder function, and a healthy pancreas produces the correct enzymes in the proper quantities, at the right times, to digest the foods we eat.
The pancreas releases two important hormones insulin, which lowers blood sugars, and glucagon, which raises blood sugar levels. A healthy functioning pancreas is very important to our body’s blood sugar balance. Keeping blood sugar levels in balance is extremely important to the brain, liver, and kidney function.
Some of the factors that can negatively affect the pancreas are intense or ongoing stress in our lives, a diet high in sugary and fatty foods, too much alcohol, and certain prescription drugs, each of which can affect the efficiency and health of the pancreas. A diet that many of us are guilty of doing is eating large amounts of refined and concentrated sugars like high glycemic foods and drinking highly sugary drinks that stress the pancreas and imbalanced blood sugar levels. High fructose corn syrup is very hard on our bodies and is in virtually all soda pops and many of our foods.
Throughout human history, herbs have been used to support our health, including the pancreas. So, drawing on this ancient wisdom, Cedar Bear® has created an herbal formula that specifically supports the pancreas and its important functions for our bodies. Pancreas Support, along with a healthy diet, helps build healthy pancreatic function and reduce tendencies towards blood sugar imbalances. The herbs in Pancreas Support focus on supporting the healthy function of the pancreas, the kidneys, and urinary tract, and digestive and liver function. While Pancreas Support is doing its job helping to build and strengthen pancreatic function, it also has a urinary and kidney clearing effect to help fluids move smoothly, which can help with minor difficulties with bladder ‘leaks’.*
