Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is a condition caused by an insufficient amount of lactase. Lactase is the enzyme in the small intestine that digests lactose a dairy sugar . Normally, lactase breaks lactose down into galactose and glucose that can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream. When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, water is retained in the bowel, which results in bloating and diarrhea. Lactose that passes into the large intestine is fermented by bacteria. This produces carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane, which may lead to bloating, cramping and gas.With this in mind, Enzymedicas Lacto is formulated for those who have difficulty digesting foods that contain dairy. This formula contains the highest amount of lactase found in Enzymedicas products, along with eight additional enzymes to support digestion of the whole meal.* By taking Lacto with meals that contain lactose, you are providing your body with the enzymes needed for proper digestion of not only dairy sugar lactose but dairy protein and fats.* Some individuals who think they are lactose intolerant may actually be intolerant to the milk protein called casein or to milk fat. To provide assistance in digesting their components, Lacto additionally contains lipase and protease Thera-blend enzymes.
