So, what is pancreatic extract?

Pancreatic extract is a highly concentrated substance derived from the pancreas of animals, typically cows or pigs. This extract contains a variety of digestive enzymes, such as lipase, protease, and amylase, that are essential for breaking down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the digestive system. Pancreatic extract is commonly used in the production of digestive enzyme supplements to aid in the digestion of food and alleviate symptoms of digestive disorders, such as bloating, gas, and indigestion. It can also be used in medical treatments for conditions like cystic fibrosis and pancreatic cancer.
