Lipanase, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, is a natural pancreatic enzyme supplement formula providing high strength pancreatin to provide complete digestive support for fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes that catalyze the breakdown of starches (carbohydrates), proteins, and fats, so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine.
Some carbohydrate digestion takes place in the mouth by salivary amylase, but pancreatic amylase is the major carbohydrate-digesting enzyme. Amylases break down starches to maltose and maltotriose, which are further hydrolyzed into glucose by the disaccharidases of the mucosal cells, and then absorbed.
Although cellulose is indigestible by pancreatic and intestinal enzymes, the microflora within the large intestine may degrade it and produce uncomfortable symptoms in the process.
Lipanase tablets may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to supplement their diets with pancreatic lipase, protease and amylase.
