In this video, Dr. Berg talks about Glucagon. The pancreas has two cells called Beta cells that makes insulin and Alpha cells which make another hormone called glucagon. Glucagon basically opposes insulin which means insulin lowers blood sugar and glucagon raises it by breaking down glycogen which is stored sugar in the liver. Glucagon also makes new glucose if it needs to and that process is called gluconeogenesis.
Ways on How Glucagon Raises Blood Sugar:
1. Break down glycogen
2. Makes new glucose (Glyconeogenesis)
3. Activates fat release
4. Inhibits fat storage
5. Increases bile release
What Triggers Glucagon:
1. Lower blood glucose or lower insulin
2. Amino Acids (Moderate amount)
3. Exercise – The more exhaustive it is, the more triggering up to 4 to 5x.
