LactoSupreme when taken before a meal, can help prevent the uncomfortable symptoms of lactose or complex carbohydrate intolerance before they begin.
Some people do not have sufficient lactase to break down milk sugar.
Lactase is a digestive enzyme produced by the cells of the small intestine that breaks down lactose (a disaccharide found in milk) into monosaccharides glucose and galactose.
Primary lactase deficiency is a condition that develops over time for most people. After about 2 years of age, the body produces less lactase, although most people will not notice the symptoms until they are older.
Secondary lactase deficiency occurs upon injury to the small intestines, or with certain digestive diseases such as Celiac disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Crohn's.
Certain medications, such as antibiotics, can often bring on a temporary lactose intolerance.
Fifty million Americans are lactose intolerant. Certain ethnic and racial populations are more widely effected than others. As many as 75% of African Americans, Native Americans, Jewish and Hispanic adults, and nearly 100% of Asian American adults are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is least common among persons of Northern European descent.
When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, the results can be distressing. Common symptoms are nausea, cramps, bloating, gas, and diarrhea, which begin about 30 minutes to two hours after eating or drinking foods containing lactose.
It is important for people with very low tolerance to know about the many foods that may trigger digestive distress. Although milk and foods made from milk are the primary natural sources of lactose, small amounts may be added to processed foods, including:
Some so called non-dairy food products, such as powdered coffee creamer and whipped toppings, may also include ingredients that are derived from milk and, therefore, contain lactose. Foods labeled with ingredients, such as milk by-products, dry milk solids, and nonfat dry milk powder, indicate the presence of lactose.
