Insulin is a hormone; a chemical messenger produced by beta cells of the pancreatic islets. It allows our body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that we eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. The major function of insulin is to counter the concerted actions of a number of hyperglycemia-generating hormones and to maintain low blood glucose levels.
