Cayenne ((Capsicum annum) is often used as an enhancer of other herbs in any formulation. It contains aromatic resins that promote circulation and strengthen the nervous and digestive systems. It's particularly useful in providing nutrients to the pancreas and liver, which support digestion and maintain blood sugar balance. It contains carotenoid pigments, flavonoids, ascorbic acid and volatile oil. Its action is strongly stimulating to the circulation and upper digestive tract, It stimulates stomach-acid production, thereby increasing its capacity to sterilize its contents and protect against enteric infection. It is contra-indicated in severe hypertension.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) contains trace minerals, inulin (similar to insulin), potassium and betacarotene. It is a wonderful herb for the digestive system, especially the liver, gall bladder and pancreas. It acts as a digestive and hepatic (liver) tonic, cholagogue, diuretic, and detoxifier. Dandelion also has a lipotropic effect that can help reduce cholesterol. The herb is a source of potassium sodium, phosphorus and iron. The leaves are a richer source of vitamin A than carrots and contain some amounts of vitamins B and D.
Uva ursi (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) is well known for benefitting the urinary system, but it also benefits the pancreas. Uva ursi is known as an astringent. It contains glycosides, tannins, flavanoids, and resin. It has an astringent effect on the lower digestive tract. Uva ursi contains vitamin A, iron (chelated-iron) and manganese.
Bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara) The stems are used for treatment of sluggish liver related to poor assimilation of fats.
Blueberry (Vaccinum Myrtillus) For the German Commission of herb regulation, the leaves and their preparations are traditionally recommended for use in diabetes mellitus, and the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal tract conditions, blood purification, and to stimulate metabolic processes. Studies have shown the leaves have anti-diabetic activity and have been used in various herbal combinations as a treatment for diabetes. The leaves contain a component (glucoquinine) which experimentally has been shown to lower blood sugar levels and increases insulin production. Caution should be taken by diabetics and in cases of hypoglycemia (a deficiency of sugar in the blood in which the glucose in the blood is abnormally low).
The homeopathy part of the formula with Iris Versicolor, Pepsinum, Podophyllum, Sanguinaria, Ipeca, Antimonium Crudum, Pancreas are used as a pancreas regeneration and rebuilding combination stimulating enzyme functions. Functions include effectiveness as a blood sugar regulator, regulating both hypoglycemia and diabetes.
Zinc, calcium, nickel, molybdenum, magnesium and cobalt are minerals and trace elements necessary for the good functioning of important metabolic reactions in the pancreas.
Pancreas Formula is also a source of chromium, an essential trace mineral that is needed for insulin production to help the body maintain normal blood sugar levels. Diets high in refined and processed foods can cause chromium deficiency. Chromium plays also a role in the synthesis of proteins, fats and cholesterol.Research studies show our diet is deficient in chromium, which is helpful in maintaining and regulating stable blood sugar levels.
Suggested Usage: Take 2 capsules daily for a dietary supplement.

Anatomy of the Pancreas
The pancreas is an elongated, flat, hammer shaped organ that is light tan or pinkish in color, analogous in its structures to the salivary glands which is located across the back of the abdomen, behind the stomach, stretches across upper abdomen right behind the stomach and touching the spleen. Its right extremity, being broad, is called the head, and is connected to the main portion of the organ, or body, by a slight constriction, the neck; while its left extremity gradually tapers to form the tail. Its length varies from 12 to 15 cm, and its weight from 65 to 100 gm.
Structure of the Pancreas Exocrine tissue
The pancreas is made up of two types of tissue:
The exocrine tissue secretes digestive enzymes. The pancreatic juice, carried by the pancreatic duct to the duodenum, is an important digestive fluid. Pancreatic juice is composed of two products critical to proper digestion: digestive enzymes and bicarbonate.
The endocrine tissue, (islets of Langerhans) secretes hormones which is taken up by the blood stream and is concerned with sugar metabolism. Glucagon raises the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Insulin stimulates cells to utilize glucose. Somatostatin may regulate the secretion of glucagon and insulin.
Functions of the Pancreas
The pancreas has a dual role - it helps digest food and also secretes hormones that, among other things, affect the level of sugar in the blood.
It manufactures enzymes to aid in digestion and produces the hormone insulin to regulate blood sugar levels in the bloodstream. The digestive juices secreted by the pancreas combine with juices from the intestines to complete the job of breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Substances in the pancreatic juice also help neutralize stomach acids that pass from the stomach into the small intestine.
The enzymes secreted by the exocrine tissue in the pancreas help break down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and acids in the duodenum.
The hormones secreted by the endocrine tissue in the pancreas are insulin and glucagon (which regulate the level of glucose in the blood).
The pancreas secretes enzymes that have the capacity to reduce virtually all digestible macromolecules into forms that are capable of being absorbed. Three major groups of enzymes are critical to efficient digestion:
- Proteases: Digestion of proteins is initiated by pepsin in the stomach, but the bulk of protein digestion is due to the pancreatic proteases. Several proteases are synthesized in the pancreas and secreted into the lumen of the small intestine. The two major pancreatic proteases are trypsin and chymotrypsin.
- Pancreatic Lipase: The major form of dietary fat is triglyceride. A triglyceride molecule cannot be directly absorbed across the intestinal mucosa. It must first be digested. The enzyme that performs this hydrolysis is pancreatic lipase, which is delivered into the lumen of the gut as a constituent of pancreatic juice.
- Amylase: The major dietary carbohydrate for many species is starch, a storage form of glucose in plants. Amylase is the enzyme that hydrolyses starch to maltose.
Other Pancreatic Enzymes
In addition to the proteases, lipase and amylase, the pancreas produces a host of other digestive enzymes, including ribonuclease, deoxyribonuclease, gelatinase and elastase.
Conditions that affect the pancreas
Alcoholism, gallstones and viral infections can cause a serious inflammation of the pancreas called pancreatitis. When gallstones block the bile duct, which the pancreatic duct empties into, the flow of pancreatic juices is stopped. This may also lead to pancreatitis. Hypoglycemia or too little sugar in the blood can result from an overproduction of insulin by the islets of Langerhans. Tumors on the islets themselves, or large tumors on other organs near the pancreas, can cause the release of excess insulin. Diabetes mellitus is a serious common disorder that occurs:
When the islets of Langerhans fail to produce enough insulin,
- When the pancreas produces very little insulin, or
- When the body does not respond appropriately to insulin, a condition called "insulin resistance."
Why Is Insulin Important?
To make energy, cells need food in a very simple form. When you eat or drink, much of your food is broken down into a simple sugar called glucose. Glucose provides the energy your body needs for daily activities. Your bloodstream transports glucose both from where it is taken into the body after eating, to the cells where it will be used, stored, or converted to fat. When the amount of glucose in your blood reaches a certain level, your pancreas releases insulin. The insulin carries the glucose into the appropriate cells. As more glucose enters your cells, the level of glucose in your bloodstream drops. Without insulin, the glucose can't be stored -- which allows the level of glucose in the blood to rise. Too much glucose in the blood is called "high blood sugar." By definition, diabetes is having a blood sugar level of 110 milligrams per deciliter or more after an overnight fast.
