Lactase is a digestive enzyme required for the breakdown of the milk sugar Lactose. Lactase should be produced by the body in the small intestines, however if little or no lactase is produced or if production is impaired, undigested lactose moves into the colon where it is fermented. This leads to the production of hydrogen, carbon dioxide and organic acids resulting in cramps, wind and diarrhoea.
Intolerance to lactose is not life threatening, however it can make patients feel very unwell and although eliminating milk based products is one solution, it can prove impractical as well as resulting in dietary restrictions.
The enzyme activity is measured and expressed in Food Chemical Codex (FCC) units, a standard for plant enzymes that is a better description than weight in milligrams, as it describes the level of enzyme activity. This is a high potency product and can only be compared with other manufacturers products if they supply units of activity (not weight).
This product can be used on a long term basis to reduce the symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Daily intake: 1 to 3 tablets
