Enzymedica Lacto™ is formulated for those with difficulty digesting foods that contain lactose and dairy proteins. It contains the highest amount of lactase along with eight additional enzymes.
Lactose intolerance is a condition caused by a lack of an enzyme called lactase. Lactase is the enzyme in the small intestine that digests lactose (a dairy sugar). When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, water is retained in the bowel resulting in bloating and excessive digestive discomfort. These issues can occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting lactose containing foods.
By taking Lacto™ with meals that contain lactose, you are providing your body with the enzymes needed for proper digestion of dairy sugar (lactose), dairy protein, fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and fibre.
• Maximum support for dairy intolerance
• Promotes both lactose and casein digestion
• Breaks down dairy sugar and dairy protein
• Additional enzymes help digest the entire meal.
Dosage: Take 1 capsule once daily on an empty stomach, 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Consult with a physician prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications or have a medical condition.
