Lactose intolerance, also called lactose deficiency or maldigestion, is a very common problem. At least 50-70% of non-white adults and up to 20% of Caucasians unfortunately experience its clinical symptoms including: flatulence, crampy abdominal pain, diarrhea, and bloating. Lactose intolerance tends to develop after 5 years of age because infants and young children derive approximately 50% of their daily calories from milk carbohydrates and benefit from the many nutrients provided in milk to grow.
Lactose is considered a disaccharide because it is composed of glucose and galactose monomers linked via a B-galactoside bond. Individuals who are not lactose intolerant produce an enzyme called Lactase that is normally present on the surface of intestinal microvilli. Here, the Lactase is able to break down Lactose into glucose and galactose, which are easily absorbed. A lactose intolerant individual does not make sufficient levels of the enzyme Lactase, likely due to a genetically programmed loss of lactase enzyme expression after weaning. Undigested lactose then moves onto the colon where is fermented by the colonic bacteria causing the undesirable symptoms of lactose intolerance.
Pharmaceutical companies have recognized the need to replace the deficient lactase enzyme by encouraging consumers to take a fast acting lactase pill prior to consuming a meal containing lactose.
While a good concept, many people continued to have the undesirable symptoms of lactose intolerance despite taking a lactose pill. The reason is very simple; the lactase enzyme is inactivated by stomach acid. This drove consumers to take more lactase pills throughout meals to replace the inactivated lactase. Ultimately, increasing the number of bottles consumers had to purchase. Utilizing and understanding these concepts, Scimera Bioscience proudly introduces LactasePro.
LactasePro is a product without comparison, it deliver Lactase in a delayed release capsule. This allows Lactase to bypass the destructive acidity of the stomach and reach the surface of the intestinal microvilli. This way, lactose is digested in the right place at the right time. LactasePro also allows consumers from having to take multiple pills throughout meals by including more enzyme into every pill.
The overwhelming literature of probiotics promoting digestive health has driven Scimera Bioscience to include three of the most potent lactose digesting bacteria in LactasePro, to further enhance Lactose digestion.
Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophiles, and Lactobacillus acidophilus are all found in our Asprega formulation and are included in LactasePro because of their capacity to digest Lactose. These probiotic strains contain Lactase and it is delivered to the small intestine via our delayed release capsule technology to avoid the stomach acid from killing the beneficial bacteria.
LactasePro is also contains dairy protein digestive enzymes . This innovative combination is designed to break down the lactose associated with intolerance, as well as make milk proteins easier to digest as well.
With the triple action ultra formulation of LactasePro, dairy doesn’t stand a chance. It’s now time to rethink and enjoy dairy again. LactasePro is safe for daily consumption with every meal. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without your LactasePro.
LactasePro. The ultimate Lactose intolerance formulation. Take nothing less.
