Lipanase, provided by Douglas Laboratories, s a natural pancreatic enzyme supplement formula providing 600 mg of quadruple strength pancreatin, which is equivalent to 2,400 mg of regular USP pancreatin. Lipanase tablets are enteric coated.
The pancreas supplies the major digestive enzymes which catalyze the breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and protein, so that the breakdown products can be absorbed in the upper small intestine.
Although fat digestion starts in the mouth with salivary lipase, most fat triglycerides are digested by pancreatic lipase, which is secreted by the exocrine pancreas into the duodenum. Pancreatic lipase separates triglycerides into monoglycerides and free fatty acids, which are efficiently absorbed in the upper small intestine.
