Pancreatin - pancreatic juice, which includes enzymes lipase (breaks down fats), amylase (breaks down carbohydrates) and proteases (trypsin and chymotrypsin - they break down proteins).

Mezim Fort promotes proper digestion, breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the small intestine. Normally, the pancreas forms inactive trypsinogen that only after entering the duodenum is activated and transformed into trypsin. In acute pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) transition trypsinogen into trypsin is happening in the gland itself. Simultaneously activated and other proteolytic enzymes, they begin to cause the digestion of the tissue of the prostate, which is very dangerous.

Trypsin, a part of the fort mezima suppresses stimulated secretion of the pancreas, providing anti-inflammatory and analgesic analgesic effect. Pancreatic enzymes are released from the dosage form in the alkaline environment of the small intestine have been protected from the action of gastric juice coating.
