The endocrine cells of the pancreas are known as islets of Langerhans, which composed of two primary types of cells, alpha cells, which secrete glucagon, and beta cells, which secrete insulin.
 Both regulate the levels of glucose in our body. 
 Glucagon helps in elevating the amount of glucose in the blood while insulin decreases the level of glucose in the bloodstream.
