As foods enter the small intestine from the stomach, two things must happen. Acid must be quickly and efficiently neutralized to prevent damage to the duodenal mucosa. Macromolecular nutrients, proteins, fats and starch must be broken down much further before their constituents can be absorbed through the mucosa into blood.
The pancreas plays a vital role in accomplishing both of these objectives, so vital in fact that insufficient exocrine secretion by the pancreas can lead to starvation, even if consuming adequate quantities of high-quality food. In addition to its role as an exocrine organ, the pancreas is also an endocrine organ that produces the hormones insulin and glucagon. These hormones play a vital role in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. They are, for example, absolutely necessary for maintaining normal blood concentrations of glucose.
Secretion from the exocrine pancreas is regulated by both neural and endocrine controls. During inter-digestive periods, very little secretion takes place, but as food enters the stomach and, a little later, chyme flows into the small intestine, pancreatic secretion is strongly stimulated.
Vitazan Professional Pancreatin contains whole raw pancreas, it also provides peptidases, nucleases, and elastases. Pancreas substance helps support the pancreas to aid digestion. The raw pancreatic enzyme concentrate supplies proteases that break down protein, amylases that break down carbohydrate, and lipases that break down fat. The pancreas secretes Trypsin, which is useful, for inflammation, bruises, and back injuries.
The pancreas also secretes lipase for fat breakdown and amylase for starch digestion. The raw pancreas concentrate used in this product is prepared by a special process that does not exceed the physiological temperature of 37oC. These conditions are very important so that the delicate enzyme constituents remain intact. They are guaranteed to be free of chemical pesticides and synthetic hormones. All raw materials are purchased from a licensed U.S.D.A./F.D.A. inspected facility, where all precautions are taken to prevent any contamination of subsequent processing.
