Formulate the role of the pancreas and liver in the digestion process.

The pancreas secretes amylase, lipase and trypsin, which act on proteins, fats and carbohydrates, in addition, the islets of Langerhans synthesize the hormones insulin and glucagon, which regulate blood glucose levels. The liver is the largest gland in our body, weighing up to 1.5 kg, performs several functions: digestive – produces bile, which creates an alkaline environment for the normal functioning of intestinal enzymes, and accelerates the breakdown of fats; protective – detains and neutralizes up to 95% of poisons that enter the body; participates in metabolism – promotes the conversion of glucose into glycogen, ammonia into urea; provides the synthesis of substances involved in blood coagulation (prothrombin) and anti-coagulation (heparin).
