Lactase Enzyme and Lactose Intolerance
Between 30 and 50 million Americans are lactose
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 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.
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 sugar (lactose) but
fats, carbohydrates, meat protein and
