Pancreatin

Pancreatin is a digestive enzyme that is used to supplement loss of or low digestive enzymes, often used in people with cystic fibrosis. Its synonyms include: Pancreatinum and Pancreatic Enzymes. It has also been claimed to help with food allergies, celiac disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, and weight loss.

Pancreatin contains amylase, lipase, and protease. Amylase breaks down starch, lipase breaks down fats, and proteases metabolize complex proteins. Papain, derived from the latex of the papain, is known to effectively split up immune complexes by its protease activity on cell walls bromelain, from the stalk of the pineapple plant, inhibits fibrin, splits immune complexes and activates macro-phages,and very effectively mobilizes edema.

Papain is a mixture of proteolytic enzymes derived from the juice of the unripe fruit of the tropical plant Caroica papaya, commonly known as papaya. Papain hydrolyzes proteins to form oligopeptides and amino acids. Papain also contains the proteolytic enzyme chymopapain which differs from papain in electrophoretic mobility, solubility and substrate specificity. The molecular weight of chymopapain is approximately 27,000 daltons. Papain is used as a digestive aid. It is also used as a meat tenderizer. Papain has putative anti-inflammatory activity. The activity of papain is expressed in papain units or PU. The assay of papain activity is based on the hydrolysis of casein. Pancreatin enzymes have two important functions in the body: digestion of foods and routine cancer eradication. Pancreatin is a mix of many different enzymes, and those involved in the digestion of proteins are also used to help eliminate cancers that occur. Cancer is often a disease of protein metabolism because the pancreatin enzyme cancer defense mechanism can be overwhelmed by consuming protein rich foods at inappropriate times or in excessive amounts. The body needs a time span each day approaching twelve hours or more without protein consumption for its pancreatin cancer defense mechanism to work optimally. Pancreatin enzymes can be made ineffective by contact with acids or alcohols. A diet comprised mostly of refined foods and meats may result in an acidic body chemistry that depletes these enzymes. Cancer, once established, ensures its survival by continuously generating acid as it inefficiently metabolizes food. Consuming alcoholic beverages can also interfere with the defense mechanism. Many popular cosmetics that contain acids or alcohols are a special concern for skin cancer. Mercury leakage from amalgam tooth fillings is also debilitating to many enzyme functions.

Proteolytic enzymes help alleviate a sub-optimal production of the body’s own digestives enzymes (which can occur in various pancreatic conditions). As such, supplemental enzymes can help alleviate gastrointestinal complaints such as gas/bloating, diarrhea, and cramps associated with inefficient/incomplete digestion. There is also some evidence that a small percentage of supplemental enzymes may be absorbed intact (and active) into the systemic circulation, where they appear to have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving actions that can be of benefit to athletes recovering from exercise/injury and to patients recovering from surgery.

Enzymes are catalysts in the body, protein-like substances which help maintain the tissues, orchestrate the many functions of the body, and digest food. Enzymes can be broken down into three categories: metabolic enzymes, digestive enzymes and food enzymes. Metabolic enzymes spark many of the reactions inside the cells of our body. Our organs, tissues and cells would not work without the help and direction of metabolic enzymes. Digestive enzymes secreted by our own pancreas break down the nutrients contained in the foods we eat. Food enzymes are supplied to us through the foods we eat. Food enzymes help to break down the foods before our digestive enzymes are called upon. Food enzymes are destroyed at temperatures above 118 degrees. All cooked and processed foods are devoid of food enzymes. Enzymes have important roles in medicine. They are used for the rapid lysis of blood clots (streptokinase, tissue plasminogen activator or TPA, urokinase) and for the treatment of Gaucher's disease (glucocerebrosidase), among other things. Enzymes are also used in the treatment of pancreatic insufficiency secondary to such disorders as cystic fibrosis and chronic alcoholic pancreatitis. Enzymes, in addition to being used therapeutically, are marketed as nutritional supplements. They are principally used as digestants. Some enzymes, in particular proteolytic enzymes, have putative anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic activities.

Its synonyms include: Pancreatinum and Pancreatic Enzymes. It has also been claimed to help with food allergies, celiac disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, and weight loss. Pancreatin is extracted on the spot & quickly nitrogen sealed so there is no oxidation or loss of vitality. No other pancreatin receives such care. It is a combination of proteolytic enzymes, chiefly amylase, trypsin, chymotrypsin, lipase, elastase & peptidase activities which collectively have the same action as do the enzymes of your pancreatic juices in digesting carbohydrates, proteins, & fats.

Proteolytic enzymes help alleviate a sub-optimal production of the body’s own digestives enzymes (which can occur in various pancreatic conditions). The incidence of achlorhydria increases with age. This decrease in acid content effectively reduces the ability of pepsin to digest protein. The utililization of proteolytic enzymes in medicine and pharmacology has been well documented by studies in animal and human nutrition. As such, supplemental enzymes can help alleviate gastrointestinal complaints such as gas/bloating, diarrhea, and cramps associated with inefficient/incomplete digestion.
