LactoZYME is a digestive enzyme formulation that works to help breakdown the main components of dairy products (lactose, protein, and fats).
In most cases, problems digesting dairy products are due to trouble breaking down ‘lactose’, a component in all dairy products. This is due to the body not producing adequate levels of the enzyme lactase. This inability to breakdown ‘lactose’ can cause painful gas, bloating, diarrhea, and other digestive upsets. LactoZYME contains the enzyme lactase to help with this problem.

Lipase can be measured in different ways. The most accurate is FCC LU.
