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 pork pancreas is an excellent bioavailable source of these digestive enzymes.
Thrive Pork Pancreatic Enzyme Supplement 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.
