For anyone who is "lactose intolerant" and would like to eat "normally" again.
•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 % of all African Americans and American Indians and 90 % 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 sugar). 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.
•This product contains a high potency lactase along with eight additional enzymes - and is designed to prevent the usual cramps, gas, and diarrhea that occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting lactose containing foods - for those who are lactose intolerant.
