Insulin

 

Insulin is a naturally-occurring hormone secreted by the pancreas.

 

Insulin is required by the cells of the body in order for them to remove and use glucose from the blood. Cells use glucose to produce energy that they need to carry out their functions.

 

The FDA First approved insulin in 1939

 

Originally insulin was derived from the beef or pork pancreas. In 1982 the FDA approved chemically-made insulin (recombinant) which is commonly used today.
