This product contain(s)s a high potency lactase along with eight additional enzymes.This lactase enzyme supplement, is formulated for individuals who have difficulty digesting foods that contain Lactose and dairy protein.
Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant.
Lactose intolerance is a condition caused by a lack of an enzyme called lactase. Certain ethnic and racial populations are more widely affected than others. As many as 75 percent of all African Americans and American Indians and 90 percent of Asian Americans are lactose intolerant. The condition is least common among persons of northern European descent.
Lactase is the enzyme in the small intestine that digests lactose (a dairy protein). Normally, lactase breaks lactose down into a form that can be easily absorbed by the blood. When there is not enough lactase to digest the amount of lactose consumed, water is retained in the bowel, which, results in bloating and diarrhea. Lactose that passes into the large intestine is fermented by bacteria. This produces carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane. This may lead to bloating, cramping and gas.
Lactose Intolerance Indications
Symptoms include cramps, gas and diarrhea. They usually occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting lactose containing foods. The severity of symptoms usually depends on the amount of lactose ingested and how much of the enzyme, lactase, remains in the intestinal tract.
Component Benefits of the Lactase Enzyme
Supplementation of lactase allows for lactose to be more readily digestible and absorbed. By taking Lacto with meals that contain lactose, you are providing your body with the enzymes needed for proper digestion of not only dairy protein (lactose) but fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and fiber.

by Illinois Person
This stuff has basically 1 and half lactaid pills in it and enzymes to help your body digest lactose on top of it. Highly recommended it. Works best if you take it 10 minutes before eating rather then with it but still works with meals.A little pricey...
Overpriced but the forumula is ok, better than most in the market.
