The pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, which is essential in digesting carbohydrates and breaking them down into glucose. Insulin transports glucose into the cells of the body so that it can be used as fuel for energy. Insulin is sometimes described as a ‘key that opens doors to the cells, allowing glucose to enter’.
