The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine and produces hormones for release into the blood. The digestive enzymes are crucial to the proper breakdown of ingested fats, proteins and sugars. The pancreatic hormones are insulin, which decreases blood sugar, and glucagon, which increases blood sugar. Together, the two hormones play an important role in regulating the sugar level of the blood. The panceas has two important functions in the body. They are glucose regulation and digestion. The pancreas enzymes perform the bulk of food digestion. This is important since many of the degenerative diseases affecting the elderly can be attributed to poor digestion.
