How does Lactaid work?

Asked 9 months ago
Lactaid works by providing lactase, the enzyme necessary for digesting lactose, the sugar found in milk and dairy products. Some individuals lack sufficient amounts of lactase, leading to lactose intolerance symptoms such as bloating, gas, and diarrhea. Lactaid supplements contain a natural lactase enzyme, which breaks down lactose into simpler sugars that can be easily absorbed by the body. By taking Lactaid before consuming dairy products, the lactase enzyme helps digest lactose, reducing or eliminating uncomfortable symptoms caused by lactose intolerance. Lactaid comes in various forms, including tablets and drops, offering people with lactose intolerance the ability to enjoy dairy without the distressing side effects. Consult a healthcare professional for advice on using Lactaid or if symptoms persist.
