The pancreas is a gland behind the stomach which is responsible for producing certain fluids and pancreatic juices whose function is to help digest food. It also produces insulin, which is a hormone that regulates the way in which the digested nutrients are stored in the body.
To look after the pancreas is necessary to avoid eating red meat, sausages and fried food, as well as refined flour and sugar, as they greatly hinder pancreatic functions. You should avoid the maximum consumption of animal fats (cheese, milk, chicken, etc., except for fish), as well as avoiding smoking, drinking alcohol and overeating at one meal, and avoid exaggerating in taking drugs and chemicals.
Foods to eat
To maintain a healthy pancreas and prevent pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer and pancreatic morbid, you must take into account to include in the daily diet at least 2 liters of pure water and increase the consumption of fresh vegetables, which are a medicine and nutritional elixir for the pancreas.
The vegetables recommended for pancreas are: lettuce, potatoes, green beans, artichokes, aloe, cabbage, carrots, spinach, celery, beets and chard.
Recommended fruits: banana, lemon, mango, apple, oranges, tangerines, papaya, and plums.
Here are some juices that will not only serve to keep your pancreas in good form and regenerate its functions, but to prevent diseases and conditions of this important body part. The best vegetables have been selected; drink at least one or two of these juices a day when suffering from an affection of the pancreas.
NOTE: vegetable juices are better in the evenings or to accompany food (you must avoid sugary drinks or teas during meals). Fruit juices are better in the morning, but should be drunk on an empty stomach and avoid eating anything during the half hour that follows). Do not mix fruits with vegetables or any other food.

Yes diabetics can take fruits but in less quantity and interval at least 2hrs .
Excellent suggestions! I’ve been looking for some great, easy to use recipes to do general cleanses. I typically tend to use general, full-body cleanses, but it’s good to find some really good recipes for specific organs as well. You’re right, there’s not much talk about the pancreas specifically, but every organ has its role, and they all work together.
We don’t know its’ function??? Of course we do!
Basically, the pancreas is the chief metabolic organ regulating important hormones (ie. insulin and glucagon) involved in the transport of primary sugars into/out of cells. Therefore, the pancreas makes “energy” available at one of the most fundamental of biological levels, the cell.
Another important role the pancreas plays is the secretion of digestive enzymes (ie. protease, lipase, amylase, trypsin, etc.) which break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the duodenum, which is part of the small intestine. Once these enzymes have catalyzed the reactions leading to the breakdown of nutrients into smaller units, those units (ie. peptides, lipids and sugars) may be absorbed through the later portion of the small intestine into the blood stream. The simplified nutrients can then be transported around the body for use or storage.
