Pancreatin is a mixture of pancreatic enzymes that support digestion. Porcine pancreatin, which is similar to human, consists of proteases (to break down protein), amylases (to break down carbohydrates) and lipases (to break down fats). Together they aid the body's natural digestion process and may improve nutrient absorption. When taken between meals they act as systemic enzymes providing soothing comfort to the body. Pancreatin 8X contains eight times the enzyme activity as pancreatin USP.
For Digestive Aid: 1 to 2 capsules immediately before a meal. For Systemic Aid: 1 to 2 capsules an hour before or after a meal.

After trying many things for IBS related bloating these seem to be the best thing yet, but i also take betaine, the combination of the 2 seem to work extremely well.
I should have listened to my voice on this one because it caused us more digestive distress than the vegetarian version that I normally purchase. Unfortunately, I will not purchase again and decided to not send it back.

I have acute pancreatitis that was dx. a few months ago. I did some research and found that this product had been helpful to others with AP. I started taking 1 capsule 15 minutes before each meal and felt that helped some. I am now taking 2 capsules if I eat meat or even a little fat. I am on a very low fat diet also. Over course of the last 2 months, I have only had one flare-up of the pancreatitis and that is when I was away from home and did not take the Pancreatin 8x. This really works and I would recommend it to anyone who has digestion issues or has had their gallbladder removed. My gastro doc did not even mention digestive enzymes to me!!

I have really severe digestive problems and I have wanted to try different enzyme ratio than is sold in my country (Slovakia). It helps me to make more firm stool, because I have always diarrhea. Doctors do not know what I suffer from and it limits me very much in my life and this Pancreatin is only thing which helps me at least a bit. According to my condition, it is some progress.
