TPAN Pancreas Extract provides a high amount of pancreas tissue extract, which is rich in biologically-active proteins, hormones and nucleic acids, to support proper nutrient digestion and absorption. Pancreatic insufficiency can cause serious health problems, abdominal discomfort, nutrient deficiencies, and the presence of undigested food in the stool. Pancreas extract contains hormones and enzymes which are required for proper pancreatic function; thereby assisting with food allergies, inflammatory conditions, autoimmune diseases and viral infections.TPAN Pancreas Extract is indicated for conditions associated with pancreatic disorders, including hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, food allergies, digestive disturbances, bloating, flatulence, indigestion and heartburn.The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced.

The pancreas is important in digestive functions as well as an important gland of internal secretion, the chief function of which is to facilitate the metabolism of carbohydrates. The recommended pancreas dose is 2 - 10 grains, three to four times a day (390 – 2600 mg per day) (1). Harrower also suggests that pancreas preparations have an excellent influence on glycosuria due to the restorative action on the pancreas caused by the reinforcement of digestion (2). In particular, Harrower indicates the use of total pancreas, as well as the islets of Langerhans in particular, for its homostimulative effects, thereby re-establishing the normal work of the pancreas, which, as previously discussed, is for digestion and to facilitate the metabolism of carbohydrates (3). Harrower also believes that there may be a second internal secretion from the pancreas, which influences the sympathetic system and nutrition rather than the carbohydrate metabolism. He provides an example with pancreatectomized dogs whose carbohydrate metabolism was controlled with insulin; however, they were thin and abnormal. Upon feeding with pancreas, they promptly regained their weight and strength (4).
Genestra Brands has written a statement addressing the safety of their glandular formulas and the potential risk of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), also known as "Mad Cow Disease".
BSE is one of a group of diseases known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) that affects the nervous system of cattle. Although BSE-infected cattle may be suspected based on clinical signs and symptoms, a diagnosis can only be confirmed by microscopic examination of brain tissues taken from the deceased animal. Scientists believe that the spread of this disease in cattle is caused by feeding material from infected cattle or sheep back to other cattle.
Both the Canadian Food and Drugs Regulations and the US Code of Federal Regulations have identified Specified Risk Materials (SRMs) as ingredients that have an increased risk of BSE. Currently Seroyal uses two such ingredients, pituitary and hypothalamus. However, these two ingredients are only identified as specified risk materials if they come from cattle aged 30 months or older. We receive documentation with each lot certifying that these ingredients are derived from cattle less than 30 months of age at the time of slaughter, therefore reducing the potential for BSE contamination, as TSE infectivity accumulates in bovine animals over an incubation period of several years. As well, these ingredients are sourced from Argentina or New Zealand bovine, countries identified by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) as having negligible-BSE risk.
