Most Advanced Dairy Digestion Formula*

Many people have difficulty digesting meals containing dairy, resulting in discomforts 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 which are common to lactose and casein intolerance.*

Recommended Use: 1 capsule with each meal containing dairy. More may be taken as needed.

Thera-blend™ is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in 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.*

NO FILLERS ADDED

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 that 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.

LactoTM 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-blendTM 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 which are common to lactose and casein intolerance.*

Thera-blend is an exclusive process that combines multiple strains of enzymes that work in 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.*

Recommended Use: One capsule with each meal containing dairy. More may be taken as needed.

Our max strength formula is packed with the enzymes lactase and protease to help break down problem-causing lactose and casein, providing the ultimate support for dairy intolerances.* Powered by Thera-blend™, the enzymes in Lacto are active throughout the entire digestive tract, maximizing your health benefits. With the right help, you can go back to enjoying the dairy products you love.

What causes dairy intolerance, and how can enzymes help?
If our bodies have difficulty digesting dairy, the root cause comes from a lack of lactase in our guts, a lactose-digesting enzyme. Enzymes are designed to break down a specific kind of food or compound, so the more or less lactase we have, the better or worse we can digest lactose. This enzyme works by breaking down lactose, which is difficult to digest, and turning it into the sugar glucose, which is easy to digest.

Lactose isn't the only challenge, however. Many individuals who struggle with dairy actually have an intolerance to casein, a protein found in dairy. That's why Lacto contains enzymes to break down both of these components. If you haven't had success with other lactase-only formulas, casein may be your biggest challenge.

When we don’t have enough enzymes to digest the dairy we eat, the body retains water in the gut, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms like occasional bloating and irregularity. There are a number of reasons why someone may be lactase deficient, from age to being born without the ability to produce lactase, but the bottom line is that many Americans experience this—as many as 50 million of them.

This is where supplements come in. While Lacto comes with lactase for digesting lactose, it also includes protease for complete dairy digestion, along with a whole host of other enzymes for digesting the entire meal.* Protease, a protein-digesting enzyme, helps break down casein and dairy proteins, so that every part of the dairy product is easily digested.*
