A Panacea for Your Pancreas?
Your pancreas is a large gland located near your small intestine and spanning a large part of your upper abdomen to your spleen. It is responsible for dispersing digestive enzymes into your small intestine to continue breaking up food after it leaves your stomach. Solaray Pancreatin is a combination of those digestive enzymes normally produced by your pancreas to help you digest fats, proteins and sugars. Solaray Pancreatin can help you replace digestive enzymes when your body doesn’t have enough. Natural-health practitioners often suggest it for treating indigestion, malnourishment, bloating, food allergies, gas, arthritis, and more.

Why a Supplement?
Enzymes occur naturally in all raw foods. Unfortunately, however, processing and cooking destroys them, meaning that most foods that Americans eat today are deficient in enzymes. In addition, at about 27-28 years old, your body’s ability to produce its own enzymes naturally begins to decrease. A shortage of enzymes is called pancreatic insufficiency or enzyme deficiency. The result is a limited supply of digestive enzymes to break down starch, protein, and fats, into smaller units to be absorbed into your intestinal walls. Taking Solaray Pancreatin can help ensure that you keep enough enzymes for your digestive system to function normally.
What Happens When Enzymes are Low?
Pancreatic enzymes are essential for timely transfer of the food you eat through your gastrointestinal tract and to support a healthy immune system. When you have insufficient enzymes for these functions, you don’t get the nutrition you need from the food you eat. You may experience weight loss or gain, fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, and brittle nails. In addition, the food that you don’t digest completely continues to your colon, resulting in bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea, cramping and other painful symptoms of malnourishment.
More Benefits of Pancreatin
Beyond digestion, Pancreatin can provide cascading benefits throughout your body. Digestion yields an amino acid called homocysteine, which can get out of balance and build up in your blood and drive formation of plaque in your arteries, especially if you have a pancreatic disorder. But Solaray Pancreatin can help convert homocysteine into safer amino acids, thus providing support against heart disease.
