What is the Pancreas and its role in our Health?

Pancreas

The Pancreas is an organ that is very much forgotten about until there is an issue with its function. The Pancreas produces insulin and other important enzymes and hormones that help break down foods. Mal-function in this area not only leads to several types of pancreatitis but also diabetes and other diseases that result from malnutrition due to malabsorption. 

Foods that support the Pancreas

Consuming anti-oxidant rich vegetables from the cruciferous family including broccoli, kale, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, and watercress is very beneficial for pancreas function. Notably, the Pancreas also plays a role in transforming our bodies into a more alkaline environment. Therefore, following a vegan alkaline diet, similar to that which was introduced and heavily promoted by the late Dr. Sebi, can be beneficial as well.

    Hey, there. I saw an ad at the bottom for mushrooms, but no mention in the article, either way. Just wondering if you know about any studies looking at mushrooms and pancreatitis. I keep hear mixed information about mushrooms. As a nightshade, they cause inflammation, but I’ve also heard they’re one of the best foods for preventing dementia. Thanks.

      Hello Peg…There seems to be conflicting information about mushrooms because there are about 5000 types of mushrooms. Out of these about 100 are toxic. Even further about 10% of those can cause fatalities. A particular type of mushroom called Amanita phalloides is responsible for 95% of toxic mushroom poisonings. However, Mushrooms are a great source of selenium, dietary fiber, potassium, thiamin, copper, folate, vitamin B6, and riboflavin which are all great for pancreatic health… just stay away from the toxic kind!
