Ortho Molecular Full-Strength Pancreatin
Full-Strength Pancreatin contains amylase, protease, and lipase for enhanced digestion and absorption for those with suboptimal pancreatic exocrine output.
- Provides Lipase for Ideal Fat Metabolism
- Supports Healthy Digestion and Maximizes Nutrient Absorption
- Helps Maintain Healthy Gastrointestinal Flora
- Provides Protease-Rich Digestive Enzymes for Improved Protein Breakdown
Full-Strength Pancreatin is a bioidentical form of pancreatic enzymes for improved digestion and absorption. Full-Strength Pancreatin is designed to aid the body's natural digestive process by providing enzymes naturally secreted by the pancreas when there is suboptimal pancreatic output. These enzymes are essential to the digestion of food and absorption of nutrients. Pancreatin is comprised of a pancreatic extract, which has been purified to contain only pancreatic digestive enzymes, for improved digestion. Pancreatic enzymes are delivered to the duodenum, via acinar cells, for hydrolysis of complete nutrients.

Because of our hectic lifestyles and frequent consumption of overcooked food, digestion can often be less than optimal. Poor digestion can produce bloating and gas, cramping, diarrhea or constipation, and even food intolerances. Incomplete digestion of food proteins may also be linked to food allergies, and improper digestion can cause foods to be fermented in the gut, and can lead to the proliferation of “bad” bacteria and yeast at the expense of “good” intestinal bacteria. More complete digestion removes a potential food source for these bad bacteria, allowing for the complete breakdown of food proteins to help support regular bowel movements. The pancreas secretes a substance called pancreatin, which contains protease, amylase, and lipase, allowing for improved macronutrient breakdown. In cases where there is an increase of fat in the stool, pancreatin allows for normalization of fecal fat levels.
