Foods That Will Heal the Pancreas

The pancreas plays a crucial role in digestion.
When food empties from your stomach into the small intestine,
it mixes with digestive enzymes from the pancreas that
neutralize stomach acid, preventing damage to the intestine.
These enzymes also break down your food so that it can be
absorbed by your body. The pancreas produces insulin, which
reduces blood sugar levels and allows your body to store
food energy for future use. Eating the right foods can heal
and nourish your pancreas. It may also help you avoid
pancreatitis, a painful inflammation of the pancreas.

Blueberries and Cherries
Blueberries and cherries are both good sources of antioxidants,
which help prevent cell damage.

Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables
like Brussels sprouts, cabbage and cauliflower
contain powerful chemicals which may help
 prevent cancer.

Garlic, along with its other allium relative, onions,
is a good source of beneficial nutrients for pancreas
health and for the prevention of cancer.
