Digestive support in case of pancreatic insufficiency

Digestive support in case of pancreatic insufficiency

When pancreatic insufficiency occurs, the pancreas does not function properly and the production of digestive enzymes, which play a key role in digestion, is disturbed. This can be caused by chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, celiac disease, etc...


'Pancreatitis is the most common disease of the pancreas. In lucky cases, acute inflammation may be completely cured, but in other cases it may be cured with residual symptoms or persist in a chronic (chronic) form. Inflammation of the pancreas can be caused by lifestyle problems, drinking too much alcohol and biliary problems. Symptoms: bloating, nausea, vomiting, pain in the upper abdomen, which may radiate to the back, chest or stomach.'

Cystic fibrosis

'Cystic fibrosis is an inherited genetic disease in which the cell wall transport protein responsible for the moisture of the outer-inner mucous membranes, the density of secreted mucus, does not function properly, so the body's glands produce much thicker secretions than normal. If it occurs in the pancreas, the gland's inadequate function causes digestive problems.'

Coeliac disease (celiac disease)

'Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disease in which the body triggers a damaging (immune) response against itself, resulting in the destruction of the small intestinal tubules. This reduces the absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals and leads to malabsorption, but not only causes digestive symptoms, it also affects other organs (e.g. skeletal system, skin).'

What can be done for the diseases listed?

Treating diseases of the pancreas is a medical problem, but taking digestive enzymes and bile acids can relieve symptoms and speed up recovery.

Effect of the ingredients of GALLMET-Extra capsules on digestion and pancreatic function:

  • Bile acids: 'One of the most important functions of bile acids is to break down fats, breaking down oil and fat into small particles. They also activate lipase, a fat-breaking enzyme that speeds up the breakdown and absorption of fats and oils in the body.'

  • Papain and bromelain: a plant-based enzyme found in papaya and pineapple that breaks down proteins, has positive effects in digestive complaints and inflammation.
  • Alpha amylase: This enzyme specifically targets carbohydrates, breaking them down into simpler sugars for easier absorption. It can be beneficial for people with pancreatic insufficiency or those who have difficulty digesting resistant starches.
  • Lipase enzyme: vital for the digestion of fats, may be useful for people with pancreatic insufficiency or conditions that adversely affect fat digestion, such as celiac disease.
  • Soy lecithin: may help fat digestion by emulsifying fats so they can be more easily broken down by lipase. It may also be beneficial in treating fatty liver disease and improving fat absorption.
  • Yarrow contributes to digestive comfort.
  • Milk thistle aids digestion, proper liver function, bile production and protects the liver.
  • Artichoke contribute to liver health, for the detoxification of the body and the comfort of the intestinal tract, aiding the flow of digestive juices.
