What is lactose intolerance?

Nutritionists estimate that up to 70% of the world's population suffers from lactose intolerance.

Symptoms include abdominal pain, swelling or bloating, excessive gas production, gurgling, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Symptoms usually occur 30 to 60 minutes after dairy consumption.

Lactase helps us digest dairy products. It is an enzyme that hydrolyzes milk sugar (lactose) into glucose and galactose-containing moieties. The body naturally produces the enzyme lactase in the small intestine. Its production is high up to the age of 2 years and then begins to decline. Also some digestive disorders, even minor injuries to the intestine, can alter the balance of this enzyme.

The benefits of lactase for human health are many:

  • Effective support for digestive imbalances
  • Reduces bloating and excessive gas production
  • It can act proactively or even reduce the flatness Improves Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Improves digestive tract irritation (eg dyspepsia, diarrhea, etc.) 

The lactose intolerance and its chronic exclusion from our diet can cause serious deficiencies in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and trace elements, such as calcium, vitamin D3 and B3, proteins, amino acids and others.

Calcium deficiency can cause osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, constipation, as well as dysregulation of hormonal function, good functioning of the nervous system and blood pressure.

Foods rich in lactose are: ice cream, milk, butter, creams, some cheeses, yogurt, bread, processed cereals, soft drinks, cold meats, pastries, pastries, biscuits etc

Furthermore, foods rich in calcium (instead of dairy products) are sardines, salmon, broccoli, spinach (boiled), cabbage, rocket, almonds, white beans, dried figs, and cranberries. The treatment of lactose intolerance can easily be done by consuming probiotics containing lactase!

Doctor's Formulas TIALAC formulation converts lactose to lactic acid using lactase, while balancing the intestinal flora because it also contains lactobacillus composition.
