A COMMON PROBLEM: Lactose intolerance impacts as many as 50 million Americans. Some causes of lactose intolerance are well known. For instance, certain digestive diseases and injuries to the small intestine can reduce the amount of enzymes produced. For most people, however, lactase deficiency develops with age.
STOP SUFFERING: When there is not enough lactase in the digestive system to digest the amount of lactose consumed, the body retains water in the bowel. The result may be uncomfortable cramps, occasional bloating and diarrhea. Symptoms usually occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting dairy foods.
ENZYMES TO THE RESCUE: Supplementing with digestive enzymes may assist the body in breaking down lactose and casein and help reduce the onset of symptoms associated with this intolerance. The inclusion of lactase, an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of lactose to glucose and galactose, is integral to this process.
FREE OF: Rest assured knowing that this product does not contain any egg, dairy, preservatives, salt, sucrose, soy, wheat, yeast, nuts, corn, gluten, casein, potato, rice, or any artificial colors or flavors.

Enzymedica's Dairy Assist combines lactase to break down lactose into galactose and glucose for easy absorption into the blood stream and Protease Thera-blend contains multiple strains of protease for digesting proteins. This dual-action formula supports the digestion of both dairy sugar (lactose) and dairy protein (casein). Dairy intolerance can be a complex issue. Food intolerance reactions are caused by a deficiency of digestive enzymes. When one is lactose intolerant, they are deficient of lactase, the enzyme produced by the body to break dairy sugar down into glucose, a simple sugar that can be easily absorbed. When there is not enough lactase in the digestive system to digest the mount of lactose consumed, the body retains water in the bowel. The result may be uncomfortable cramps, occasional bloating and diarrhea. Symptoms usually occur 30 minutes to two hours after ingesting dairy foods. Lactose intolerance impacts as many as 50 million Americans. Some causes of lactose intolerance are well known. For instance, certain digestive diseases and injuries to the small intestine can reduce the amount of enzymes produced. In rare cases, children are born without the ability to produce the enzyme lactase. For most people, however, lactase deficiency develops with age. Individuals who believe they are lactose intolerant may be reacting to the milk protein, casein. Casein is the main protein found in milk and is also used in many food products as a binding agent. The reaction for a casein intolerance is usually less severe and takes a bit more time to appear. Gastrointestinal problems, such as occasional diarrhea, bloating and abdominal cramps, are common symptoms of a food intolerance, but some people can also experience joint pain, fatigue and behavioral changes.

As years pass, I become more and more allergic to dairy products. At present, in addition to red bumps and hot spots on my scalp caused by lactose-free milk products, now my hands and forearms break out in itchy bumps that last for a week, plus they cause diarrhea. I have been using Enzymedica Dairy Assist for one month now, and I can attest that it has cleared up my skin and bowel issues. I did not know until recently, that in addition to being lactose intolerant, I am also allergic to casein and whey (milk derivatives). The Dairy Assist breaks those down, and voila - no more allergy! Who would every have guessed that there are milk products in nondairy coffee creamer?! In nondairy almond cheese?! You really have to look closely at the ingredients. In my coffee every morning, I open a capsule of Enzymedica, pour about a fourth of the flavorless powder into my cup, and stir it in with the nondairy creamer. When I have frozen yogurt or lactose-free milk, I open the capsule and stir in...
I developed some sort of digestion issue: fullness, regurgitation, feeling sick after eating...but not always. Couldn't figure out what food caused it. The doctor tested me for gallbladder problems; not that. I was tested for gluten sensitivity or allergy...no, not that. Then a friend suggested milk protein ( casein.) well, I stay away from milk and feel soooo much better. But, sometimes I just gotta have cheese!!! These pills are a god-send! If I eat pizza, I will take 4 or 5 of these pills and have no digestion problems. I highly recommend if you think milk protein is your digestion problem! (Here's a tip too...shipping is the same for 1 bottle or 100 bottles. Buy a few at a time to save money.)
One and only one is needed as compared to Lactaid tabs or generic types. This is the product I've been looking for for years. Now I can eat milk products without taking multiple pills. These really work.
