What is glucagon?

Glucagon is a hormone that opposes insulin. Glucagon turns the switch on for ketosis (the state of fat burning). It releases stored sugar and fat. It is a fat-burning hormone that helps keep the blood sugar where it needs to be.

What you should know is that insulin is a dominating hormone. In the presence of insulin, glucagon will be lowered. High sugar in the diet and insulin will both inhibit glucagon.
