sanotact® Lactase 13,000 improves the digestion of milk sugar (lactose) in people who have problems digesting lactose.
Lactose intolerance does not mean you have to do without ice cream etc.
For many people, a cappuccino in a café, an ice cream on the way home or an invitation to a friend’s barbecue mean quality of life and good times. This light-hearted approach can be clouded by lactose intolerance. Lactose is found in many foods, not just milk. It is worth taking a closer look at the list of ingredients in the products, because lactose is often hidden behind different terms, including lactose, milk, milk powder, whey, whey powder, sour cream or butter. People affected by lactose intolerance are unable to fully digest the lactose ingested with food, or may not be able to digest it at all, because their body cannot produce the lactase enzyme, or cannot produce it in sufficient amounts. The undigested lactose thus enters the large intestine, where it often causes unpleasant symptoms such as diarrhoea, flatulence and abdominal pain immediately or a few hours after eating foods containing lactose.
Some sufferers give up milk and foods containing lactose altogether. Others resort to lactose-free, plant-based alternatives. However, lactose intolerance does not generally mean that certain foods have to be avoided, because there is an alternative and thus a significant relief in everyday life for those affected – lactase preparations.
Basically, lactase always has the same enzyme mechanism of action. However, there are differences in lactase activities. Lactase products supply the body with the required lactase enzyme from the outside and enable the consumption of products containing lactose.
Enjoying foods containing lactose despite lactose intolerance
The endogenous lactase enzyme in sanotact® Lactase 13,000 chewable tablets breaks down lactose into the sugars galactose and glucose, which can be used by the human body. The lactase in the tablets is released in the mouth and the effect starts within a minute. Typical digestive complaints such as flatulence or diarrhoea can be avoided by taking the chewable tablet. It is not possible to overdose on lactase because it is an enzyme produced naturally in the body and there is no build up of tolerance.
The chic metal tin allows for particularly discreet ingestion when needed and fits in any pocket or rucksack. The metal tin containing 40 chewable tablets is ideal for your hand luggage when travelling and is the safe companion for on the go.
sanotact® Lactase 13,000 Chewable Tablets are free from colourings, sweeteners, flavourings and animal ingredients, and are also gluten-free.
lactase (60.5 %), bulking agent (microcrystalline cellulose, hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose), anti-caking agent (silicon dioxide, magnesium salts of fatty acids)
- Swallow 1 tablet immediately before (but not on an empty stomach) or during consumption of products containing lactose.
- The degree of lactose intolerance varies from person to person. It depends on the body’s own lactase production and the amount of lactose contained in food and drinks. The type of food (liquid or solid) should also be considered. Please read up about the function of lactase in your diet.
- The recommended daily intake must not be exceeded. Dietary supplements are not a substitute for a balanced and varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. Keep out of reach of small children.
