Pancreatic substance is derived from porcine pancreatic tissue that resembles human pancreatin. Pancreatin has naturally occurring protease (protein digesting), amylase (carbohydrate digesting), and lipase (fat digesting) enzymes. Digestive support – assists protein, fat and carbohydrate digestion.
A healthy pancreas produces the correct chemicals in the proper quantities, at the right times, to digest the foods we eat.
The pancreas is a gland organ. It is located in the abdomen. It is part of the digestive system and produces insulin and other important enzymes and hormones that help break down foods.
The pancreas has an endocrine function because it releases juices directly into the bloodstream, and it has an exocrine function because it releases juices into ducts.
Enzymes, or digestive juices, are secreted by the pancreas into the small intestine. There, it continues breaking down food that has left the stomach.
The pancreas also produces the hormone insulin and secretes it into the bloodstream, where it regulates the body’s glucose or sugar level.
Pancreatic Substance is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans should be taken as recommended by a Health Care Professional.
