Vital Nutrients Pancreatic Enzymes
Vital nutrients pancreatic enzymes support the body’s natural digestive process, including absorption of fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
Generally speaking, the vital nutrients pancreatic enzymes that are secreted by the pancreas are lipase, amylase and protease, which help break down foods into smaller molecules that can be used by the body for energy, growth and repair. They can also assist the immune system by fighting parasites and bacteria in the intestines.
Many dietary supplements contain manmade mixtures of these naturally produced enzymes. They are called pancreatin or pancrelipase, and they can be taken to aid digestion, help prevent boating and reduce symptoms of inadequate nutrition such as diarrhea, bloating and weight loss.
Pancreatin is a full-strength, undiluted porcine extract that contains lipase, amylase and protein enzymes in their natural ranges. It is free of coatings, binders, gluten (wheat, rye, barley), lactose and milk/dairy products.
Benefits of GI Repair Powder for Digestive Health
In Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, these enzymes were traditionally used to promote digestive “energy,” rebalance the body’s yin and yang qualities and improve the body’s “Qi,” or vital energy. These enzymes have yang qualities, which are thought to drive all biochemical processes in the body.
Ox Bile & Pancreatin is an additional extract that may provide further support for digestion of fats, especially those containing bile salts, as well as absorption of essential fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K. This supplement is recommended for those who have difficulty digesting fatty foods, including those without a gall bladder or those with a condition that inhibits their body’s ability to produce bile.
