Lactorase Chews – 30’s

R99.95 (incl vat)

BIOGEN LACTORASE from Tolerase® L is an acid lactase that converts lactose into glucose and galactose. The enzyme originates from a special strain of the fungus Aspergillus oryzae. Its activity at low pH (3.5 – 5.5) makes this lactase particularly effective to digest lactose in the stomach and is therefore ideal for use in dietary supplements as a digestive aid.

WHAT IS LACTOSE AND LACTOSE INTOLERANCE?

Lactose is a milk sugar, naturally present in dairy products. It is digested by the enzyme lactase into glucose and galactose, which are absorbed in the bloodstream.

Lactose-intolerant people lack this enzyme and as a result are unable to digest lactose fully. If undigested, lactose reaches the large intestine where it is degraded by its microflora. The resulting by-products may cause symptoms of lactose intolerance including diarrhea, abdominal cramps, flatulence and nausea.

When lactose-intolerant people stop consuming dairy products, their intake of calcium tends to be lower, which can put their bone health at risk.
