Pancreatin is a combination of protease, amylase and lipase which are digestive enzymes. Normally produced in the pancreas, these enzymes aid in the digestion of fats, sugars and proteins.
Pancreatin can replace or boost these enzymes when the body does not produce enough of its own. The primary function of pancreatin is to help to breakdown food and convert it into energy. Pancreatin use can promote and maintain a healthy weight and can help the body better absorb nutrients.
