Lactase Enzyme by Natural Factors
Natural Factors - Lactase Enzyme - 60 Capsules
Natural Factors Lactase Enzyme provides relief and proper digestion can be regained with lactase enzyme supplementation.
Lactase is the enzyme necessary for digesting the sugar, lactose, from dairy products. Deficiency in lactase enzyme is common worldwide. It has been estimated that 70 to 90 percent of Oriental, black, American Indian and Mediterranean adults lack this enzyme. Symptoms range from minor abdominal discomfort and bloating to severe diarrhea in response to even small amounts of lactose. Lactase Enzyme allows people with lactase deficiency to eat or drink dairy foods without experiencing the symptoms of lactose intolerance.

A quality herbal product starts with the highest quality fresh organic plant material. The efficacy of herbal products has always been affected by growing conditions, harvesting, processing and storage. At Factor Farms in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada our quality can be guaranteed as we control the entire process from seedling to finished product.
To grow herbs organically no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides or pesticides are allowed. We use only natural substances that have been approved by the organic industry. You can be assured that the fresh herb extracts contain no traces of unwanted chemical. Even the seed and plant sources are organic.
To be organically certified, certification inspectors work closely with growers to ensure that the organic standards are adhered to. We must keep detailed records of what we use on our farm. Even after harvest, processing is regulated so that no harmful chemicals are used to manufacture the fresh herb extracts.
Local cultivation of medicinal herbs at Factors Farms ensures that the herbs are picked, processed, and extracted at just the right time when the active ingredients are at their peak.
Natural Factor knows that the natural habitats of many herbs are shrinking and that over-harvesting from the wild can endanger native medicinal plant populations. So organic cultivation of herbs is preferred over "wild crafting".

Severe lactose intolerance? That's me. It feels like the worst stomach flu in the world. Any lactase brand whose tablets are packaged in those little individual tear-open packets don't work for me (which, frankly, I hate the public conspicuousness of as well! They make me feel like an invalid to have to "tear open my little packet" in order to, like, eat food.). I don't know if there's something in the lining of those packets that deactivates the lactase or what, but I do know that if I use those, I still get sick. Natural Factors Lactase is a godsend. I couldn't believe it the first time I tried it. When I take 2 capsules with my first bite or drink of a dairy product, I can eat it to my heart's content with absolutely no trouble. I have done the guinea-pig work for you. This stuff works like the commercial brands wish they did.
I have a high degree of lactose intolerance that has become worse over the years. These capsules are easy to take and swallow - even without water when necessary. Does not appear to have fillers and if taken 5 minutes before consuming lactose products and 10 minutes after, is completeley effective. No side effects noticed. The price is very reasonable as well for heavy usage. I am very satisfied.
