Pancrease

Protein mixture isolated from porcine or bovine pancreas, sometimes called pancreatin. Contains 3 enzymes, amylase, lipase and a protease (chymotrypsin).

Pancrease - Pharmacology:

The lipase, protease and amylase components of pancrelipase break down fat, protein, and starches, respectively, in the small intestine. Lipase hydrolyzes fats into glycerol and fatty acids. Protease converts proteins into proteoses and derived substances, while amylase converts starches into dextrins and sugars.
