Lactase is an enzyme that assists in breaking down lactose, the sugar present in milk and dairy products. When individuals lack sufficient lactase production, they experience lactose intolerance, resulting in digestive discomfort. Lactase supplementation involves taking enzyme supplements to aid in lactose digestion.
Lactase supplementation provides notable health benefits. It improves nutrient intake by enabling individuals to consume dairy products, which are rich in essential nutrients like calcium, vitamin D, and protein. Moreover, it offers dietary flexibility, allowing for a broader range of food choices and enhancing overall quality of life for those with lactose intolerance.
