Lactase (beta-galactosidase) is an enzyme that exists in the small intestine of many people. It helps to break down the lactose in milk and milk products, contributing to the relief of symptoms related to lactose intolerance. This Vitacost Lactase Enzyme supplement contains 693 mg of lactase per capsule, making it up to four times stronger than other similar supplements on the market.

Lactose is a disaccharide found in milk and certain dairy products such as yogurt and whey. It is made up of two monosaccharide components that are linked together, glucose and galactose. The body cannot absorb lactose and use it as a caloric or nutritional source unless it can first break it down into these two separate components.

Lactase (beta-galactosidase) is an enzyme that exists in the small intestine of many people. It is essential for the digestion of lactose because it is involved in the hydrolysis of lactose to glucose and galactose. However, not everyone produces enough lactase naturally, resulting in the inability to digest lactose fully. This problem is often referred to as lactose intolerance. In those affected, it may result in symptoms of digestive discomfort after consuming dairy products, such as mild indigestion, stomach cramps, gas, heartburn or diarrhoea. When the body cannot produce enough of this enzyme itself, a supplementary form of lactase can assist lactose digestion, helping to abate the discomfort associated with lactose intolerance.
