Pancreatin is a combination of digestive enzymes (proteins) called proteolytic enzymes; these enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, proteins, and sugars.
Pancreatin is used to replace digestive enzymes when the pancreas does not produce enough on its own. Certain medical conditions can cause this lack of enzymes, including cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, pancreatic cancer, or pancreas surgery. Pancreatin may also be used to treat a condition called steatorrhea (loose, fatty stools).
Scientific evidence supports the use of proteolytic-enzyme supplements for enhancing digestive function and for speeding recovery from injury/surgery and reducing swelling/bruising. The benefits in autoimmune diseases and food allergies is less substantial and awaits further study. As such, proteolytic enzyme supplements appear to represent a good value for athletes wishing to enhance recovery from exercise/injury and for patients recovering from surgery.
New Roots Herbal’s pancreatin is standardized to be four times stronger.
