The pancreas is an important part of the digestive system, it manufactures and secretes digestive enzymes such as amylase, which digests starch. It also produces lipase, which breaks down fats, and trypsin, a protein processor. The pancreas creates and secretes insulin, glucagon and other hormones. Insulin and glucagon are key for the maintenance of blood sugar, as insulin lowers blood sugar and glucagon increases the blood sugar according to the body's needs.
