Dairy Lactose Digestion
Lacto is formulated for those that have difficulty digesting foods that contain lactose and dairy protein. 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. Certain ethnic and racial populations are more widely affected than others. Lactase is the enzyme in the small intestine that digests lactose (a dairy sugar). Normally, lactase breaks lactose down into glucose that can be easily absorbed by the blood. 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.
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, fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and fibre.
