Exceptionally comprehensive formula designed to support digesting dairy products. Because not all Lactase supplement products are created equal. Lactose intolerance also called lactose deficiency or maldigestion is a very common problem. At least 50-70% of non-white adults and up to 20% of Caucasians unfortunately experience its clinical symptoms including - flatulence crampy abdominal pain diarrhea and bloating. Lactose intolerance tends to develop after 5 years of age because infants and young children derive approximately 50% of their daily calories from milk carbohydrates and benefit from the many nutrients provided in milk to grow. Lactose is considered a disaccharide because it is composed of glucose and galactose monomers linked via a B-galactoside bond. Individuals who are not lactose intolerant produce an enzyme called Lactase that is normally present on the surface of intestinal microvilli. Here the Lactase is able to break down Lactose into glucose and galactose which are easily absorbed. A lactose intolerant individual does not make sufficient levels of the enzyme Lactase likely due to a genetically programmed loss of lactase enzyme expression after weaning. Undigested lactose then moves onto the colon where is fermented by the colonic bacteria causing the undesirable symptoms of lactose intolerance. Features Lactase Pro Dairy Digestive Enzyme.
