Pancreas powder may be used for digestive support (pancreatic enzyme deficiency), and glucose metabolism.
Pancreatic enzymes have an important role in digestion. The pancreas is responsible for the production of lipase (breaks fat molecules), protease (breaks down proteins) and amylase (processes carbohydrates). Freeze dried bovine pancreas is an excellent bioavailable source of these digestive enzymes. Thrive Bovine Pancreatic Enzyme Supplements is a substitute for the natural enzymes that are normally produced by the pancreas. These enzymes complete the digestive process.
For dogs with already damaged or diseased pancreas, offering freeze dried pancreas as a regular supplement to the raw food diet is essential to preventing future attacks. Historically dogs ate the entire digestive tract of their prey including the pancreas which contains an abundance of naturally occurring digestive enzymes including amylase, lipase and proteases.
Each 1250 mg of Freeze Dried Pancreas contains:
- Protease – 250,00 USP Units
- Amylase – 250,000 USP Units
- Lipase – 700 USP Units
Freeze dried Bovine Pancreas is manufactured from raw glands collected from 100% New Zealand grown and raised cattle.
All animals are fully inspected both pre and post mortem to ensure they meet the highest standards of suitability for human consumption.
Freeze drying is a sophisticated process of water removal from the raw gland that ensures as much of the biological activity as possible is retained in the finished dried product.
