Lactose Intolerance refers to failure of digesting and metabolizing lactose, a sugar found in milk and foods made with milk. It is cause by a lack of lactase, enzyme that hydrolyzes milk sugar into its component parts and assists in the digestion dairy products. Lactose Intolerance results in symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, nausea and acid reflux.

In order to digest lactose properly, the small intestine needs lactase enzyme to break down lactose. Fortunately, Solaray® brings Lactase, a product that is intended to provide nutritive support for digesting lactose. Lactase consists Calcium (as Calcium Citrate, Calcium Carbonate), Lactase Enzyme Concentrate (Equivalent to 4,000 FCC Lactase Units [ALU]), Cellulose, Vegetable Cellulose Capsule, Calcium Phosphate, Mannitol, Magnesium Stearate and Silica.

With calcium, which is found in milk, yogurt, and cheese and other dairy products, added in this product, ensures proper functioning of muscles and nerves. Calcium is required for vascular contraction and vasodilation, muscle function, nerve transmission, intracellular signaling and hormonal secretion. The two main forms of calcium in this nutritive product are carbonate and citrate. Calcium carbonate is used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach. It is absorbed most efficiently when taken with food. Calcium citrate is useful for people with achlorhydria, inflammatory bowel disease, or absorption disorders.

Of course, this Solaray® Lactase could not fulfill its intended task without the Lactase Enzyme Concentrate. Lactase is naturally produced by the body which can be found along the brush border membrane of the small intestine. It is safe to take, and no known side effects exist. So how can Lactase be produced if it is present inside the body? Well, yeast, fungi, and certain bacteria create their own lactase naturally, which is collected in a laboratory for commercial use.

There is no treatment that can enhance the body’s ability to produce lactase. Why avoid milk and other dairy products if there’s Solaray® Lactase already? For those who have Lactose Intolerance, enjoy drinking and eating milk products with Lactase.

Description: Solaray® Lactase is equivalent to 4,000 FCC lactase units per capsule with an additional 100 mg of calcium. This product is intended to provide nutritive support for digesting lactose. Suitable for vegetarians.

Rating: 5/5

Being lactose intolerent, I have tried many different products. Most have helped me a little, but after trying Lactase by Solaray. I have only tried it for almost a week and I already see immediate results. I would definately recommend this for those who have problems digesting milk.
