PANCREATIN: You should read this!

Ok, I stumbled upon Pancreatin while researching a totally different topic but read this.
Just like testosterone & hgh, our bodies produce LESS as we age (primarily because our air, food, water, meds, & personal care products are all toxic)…
Anyway, after you read this, you will have a powerful piece of knowledge.

My points about it personally:

  1. Better digestion & nutrient absorption.
  2. Makes white-T-cells more effective (they are useless without it)
  3. Digests gut-sludge (that bulge on the inside you cant seem to lose) "bubble-gut. (By 40, most US men have 25-30lbs of gut-sludge). This shit slims you from the INSIDE.
  4. Dissolves/prevents ovarian cysts for our ladies.

HERE is an article I didnt write but gives you a lot of info point by point…

Pancreatin Benefits: Health Benefits Of Pancreatin Enzymes

1. Promotes Normal Digestive Health

The Pancreatin supplement is a blend of three key digestive enzymes, namely protease, amylase, and lipase, which aid in the digestion of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats respectively. These degraded food particles are small enough to be absorbed through the intestine. On the other hand, inefficient breakdown of nutrients results in abdominal bloating, irregular bowel habits, cramping, and gas. Thus, by speeding up the digestion and breakdown of the three macronutrients within your gut, pancreatin supplementation can help fix digestive issues.

2. Treats Pancreatic Enzyme Deficiencies

Pancreatin supplementation also helps meet the daily needs of the natural pancreatic enzymes if your pancreatic function is compromised and is hindering the normal enzyme production. Pancreatin supplementation offers a great deal of benefit to people suffering from the following pancreatic diseases:

  • Pancreatitis (or inflammation of the pancreas): Pancreatin enzyme supplementation may also helpease abdominal pain via regulating enzyme secretion and minimizing the pressure within the duct (tube) leading off from the pancreas [1]
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Surgical removal of pancreas

Inadequate fat absorption is a hallmark feature of these disorders and pancreatin supplementation can help break down the food, primarily fat, reducing the excessive loss of fat in stool and the associated symptoms. It bridges the interval until the normal pancreatic function can kick in and start producing enzymes necessary for digestion.

3. Supports Heart Health

Digestion of proteins yields an amino acid, called homocysteine (Hcy). This amino acid is normally converted into other harmless amino acids by our body with the help of vitamins, primarily B12 and folic acid. However, certain disorders such as a problem with the pancreas, interfere with the absorption of vitamin B12. [2] A lack of B12 causes a buildup of Hcy in the blood that drives the formation of plaque within the arteries supplying the heart, contributing to cardiovascular disease. [3] By converting Hcy into safer amino acids, pancreatin can help protect us against heart disease.

4. May Fight Cancer

The tumor cells protect themselves against destruction by the immune system by forming a protective coat of protein, called fibrin. By working in close association with T cells (types of white blood cells), pancreatin can dissolve the protein coat encircling the tumor cells. [4] This helps destroy the mutated (or cancerous) cells.

5. Boosts Immune Health

Although not much supported by literature reviews, the pancreatin supplement may help dissolute the protective coating of the viruses, including the flu virus. This protective effect of pancreatin may boost the immune system by destroying the viruses before they can attack you.

6. May Help Fight Inflammation And Immune System Attackers

Pancreatin possesses anti-inflammatory properties that may help you deal with sore joints and muscles. The proteases in pancreatin can disintegrate the immune complexes that are the major culprit behind rheumatoid arthritis, Celiac disease, and other autoimmune diseases. The Pancreatin supplement can decrease the levels of these circulating immune complexes that can cause the body to turn against itself. Trypsin, which breaks down proteins and is a component of the pancreatin supplement has been employed in the treatment of a neurological autoimmune disorder called multiple sclerosis, where it appears to benefit the sufferers. [5]

Dod you find a recommended dosage for bodybuilders?

For anyone in general regardless of bodyweight:

3000mgs before meals 3x per day.

For high-calorie “bulking” diets:

3000mgs before EACH meal

(There is no toxicity level with pancreatin)

For cysts:

15,000mgs per day for a minimum of 30 days. (Divide dose by # of meals, take prior to meals).

Ive personally found that PipingRock brand 1500mg/tabs work wonderfully.

There are many brands out there, do your own research as well.

Take your first dose at night, when you wake up, your gonna lose a few lbs in a few short minutes!

Digestion and excretion become way more comfortable and efficient as you go on.

Is there a difference between Pancreatin and digestive enzymes?

Pancreatin is technically a digestive enzyme


Gotcha2

Technically Pancreatin is 3 digestive enzymes produced in the human body.
The product you have will def help, it contains digestive enzymes from multiple sources.
A few of the manufacturing ingredients are concerning, and Im not a fan of “equivalent to”.
Taking that is def better than not taking any but I would buy straight pancreatin in its natural form.
Many of the coatings, like “pharmacutical glaze” can block much of the dose from being absorbed.

Thanks for the clarification. Do you recommend a certain brand?

I use PipingRock 1500mg tabs.

The Piping Rock brand itself. There are other options there.

Thanks. And so it’s clear you take two 1500mg tabs prior to every meal?..3 meals a day?

Yes. Thats it. Start at night bc if you have alot built up in your gut, the first dose is gonna clear a high volume of it.

Been taking teice a day now. Not sure what MG but definitely keeping me regular but is giving me stomach extension! Hope that subsides

When that condensed sludge is being broken down gasses are released, once you get the majority of it out that should subside. Its a cleasing process. Anytime you remove toxins etc… you will experience side effects of the purging.

Are you taking straight pancreatin or an enzyme blend?
