Pancreas – Gimme Some Sugar!

The pancreas is a cute little organ nestled between the bottom of the stomach and the top of the small intestine. This little guy produces digestive enzymes, but he is best known for producing the hormone insulin. We need insulin to help us process glucose from the blood stream. Say pancreas in Japanese: suizou! Enjoy some pancreas-related merchandise from I Heart Guts.
