DipanVET/Dipan 9 60 vcaps | Thorne Vet
The purest, undiluted pancreatin on the market
- provides lipase, protease, and amylase for digestion of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates
- benefits individual animals with occasional indigestion
- pancreatin is a mixture of several digestive enzymes produced by cells in the pancreas
Illness and aging can adversely affect digestive enzyme activity and lead to gas, bloating, and other forms of gastrointestinal discomfort. Pancreatin is essential to healthy digestion and absorption of numerous nutrients, especially fats. It is composed of amylase, lipase, and protease and is produced and secreted by the pancreas. Supplementing with digestive enzymes may assist in normalizing digestive processes.
Providing the right digestive enzyme product is equally as important as assuring the quality of the digestive enzymes prescribed for pets. For example, lactose intolerance – due to a deficiency of the enzyme lactase – is the reason most pets cannot drink milk without digestive upset. Yet many of the digestive enzymes on the market (pancreatin, pepsin, papain, and bromelain) are actually diluted with hidden lactose! Why? Because lactose is used as a means of diluting the potency of the digestive enzyme to meet a given specification. For example, the U.S. Pharmacopeia calls for pepsin and pancreatin to have a specified digestive power. Anything greater than the specified U.S. Pharmacopeia?s requirement is listed on the label as 2X, 3X, etc. – meaning the product has two or three times the specified digestive power. Pure, raw pancreatin typically has a 9X digestive power indicating it is undiluted. Anything less than 9X is diluted, often with lactose, and both prescription and non-prescription digestive enzyme products may contain lactose.
Thorne Vet's DipanVET contains only pure, undiluted pancreatin, which is lactose-free and has the highest potency and purity possible
