Glucose is one of the body's most important sources of energy. Glucose is absorbed from the blood into cells where it provides energy for a range of cellular functions. This cellular uptake of glucose is facilitated by the hormone insulin, which is secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas. Insulin also helps convert excess glucose into glycogen for storage in the liver.
