Contains a highly active blend of three pancreatic enzymes-Lipase, Amylase and Protease, which act to digest fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) is a syndrome caused by insufficient synthesis and secretion of pancreatic enzymes. Maldigestion occurs when pancreatic enzyme activity is reduced. Undigestion food components in the intestinal lumen result in diarrhea, changes to the intestinal microflora and weight loss.
Common complications associated with EPI include a reduction in serum cobalamin (Vitamin B12) and a dysbiosis of the intestinal bacterial flora.
Pancreatic enzyme supplementation is the mainstay of therapy for EPI. However, pancreatic enzymes are very sensitive to changes in the pH and can be destroyed in the acid environment of the stomach. Not only will uncoated enzyme preparations be destroyed in the stomach, they can also cause erosions of oral mucous membranes and skin irritation.
Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) in the diet combines with gastric or pancreatic intrinstic intrinsic factor to aid absorption from the intestinal tract into the bloodstram bloodstream.
It aims to regulate the intestinal microflora and reduce the level of bacterial dysbiosis.
