Porcine pancreatin, which is similar to human, consists of proteases to break down protein , amylases to break down carbohydrates and lipases to break down fats . Together they aid the body's natural digestion process and may improve nutrient absorption. When taken between meals they act as systemic enzymes providing soothing comfort to the body. Pancreatin 8X contains eight times the enzyme activity as pancreatin USP.
