Many people have difficulty digesting meals containing dairy, resulting in discomfort like occasional gas and bloating. This may occur due to the body's deficiency of enzymes that break down dairy.
Lacto contains lactase and eight other enzymes that work synergistically to digest dairy sugars, proteins, and fats. Complete dairy digestion may naturally reduce discomforts that are common to lactose and casein intolerance.
Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work at various pH levels. Thera-blend enzymes have been shown to be three times stronger and work more than six times faster than leading digestive supplements.
Lactose intolerance is a common digestive complaint caused by an insufficient amount of the enzyme lactase. Normally, lactase breaks lactose down into galactose and glucose which 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 occasional bloating and diarrhea. Lactose that passes into the large intestine is fermented by bacteria, which produces carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane, and may lead to bloating, cramping, and gas.
Lactase deficiency increases with age. The body loses its ability to produce lactase after age two. Symptoms like occasional bloating, cramps, gas, and diarrhea may not occur until some people are much older and may depend on dietary choices and other factors. These discomforts usually occur thirty minutes to two hours after ingesting foods containing lactose. The severity of symptoms usually depends on the amount of lactose ingested and how much of the enzyme lactase remains in the intestinal tract.
Research has shown that certain individuals who note adverse symptoms occurring after ingestion of dairy products may be intolerant to milk proteins (casein and whey) or to milk fats.
Lacto is formulated for individuals who have difficulty digesting foods that contain dairy. Lacto contains lactase and other enzymes that work synergistically to digest all components of dairy. High-potency lactase breaks down the dairy sugar lactose, while the lipase Thera-blend and protease Thera-blend break down dairy fats and proteins, respectively. The enzyme blends in Lacto provide digestive support for the entire meal. Complete dairy digestion may naturally reduce discomforts that are common to lactose and casein intolerance.
