WHAT PANCREX V POWDER IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR

The active ingredient in Pancrex V Powder is pancreatin. Pancreatin is a combination of enzymes normally produced by the pancreas which help to digest protein, fat, starch and
sugars in the food that you eat.
Pancreatin is given to people who do not produce enough enzymes to digest their food properly, in conditions such as cystic fibrosis, persistent inflammation of the pancreas, and when the pancreas has been removed. Pancrex V Powder may also be used when the stomach has been removed, as an
aid to digestion.
The pancreatin in Pancrex V Powder is derived from pancreases of pigs
