Caption: A green hexagon, representing glucose, rotates in a continuous motion. Glucose is the most important compound in metabolism, which is the sum total of all chemical reactions within a cell. The next frame illustrates blood and glucose with a scale on the left that displays blood glucose levels in mg. As the glucose and blood continue to move up screen, more glucose is added and the scale on the left representing blood glucose rises. The optimal blood glucose level is 100 milligrams of glucose per 100 millilitres of blood. If blood glucose levels rise above this set point, the pancreas secretes insulin which triggers the body's cells to take up glucose from the blood. (with titles).
