Insulin is secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas to regulate food storage and metabolism. If you have too much or too little of it, you won’t live for long. In essence, insulin governs your body, and it has a profound effect on aging.

The United States is a sugar nation. It’s no surprise that excess insulin is our main hormonal problem. When you strain your pancreas with too much sugar, you gain weight and increase your chances of developing diseases. If your pancreas becomes overwhelmed, it won’t be able to continue making insulin, and it may even stop altogether. With not enough insulin going around, your blood sugar will remain elevated, and you’ll develop diabetes. Your insulin levels must remain perfect, secreted just in the right amounts. If you’re wondering whether or not you’re producing too much insulin, just look at your belly. If you can’t see your abs, your pancreas is secreting too much insulin. Get it?
