ⓘ Submandibular gland

The paired submandibular glands are major salivary glands located beneath the floor of the mouth. They each weigh about 15 grams and contribute some 60–67% of unstimulated saliva secretion, on stimulation their contribution decreases in proportion as the parotid secretion rises to 50%.
