Natural and Safe management of Lactose Intolerance
The inability to digest milk sugar called lactose is due to deficiency of lactase in the gut. Lactase deficiency leads to Lactose maldigestion which results into Lactose intolerance with various GI symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, gurgling sound of intestine, gas, nausea, vomiting & diarrhea.
Besides the milk based dairy products, lactose can also be found in many prepared foods & drinks (hidden dairy) and cause Lactose intolerance. For the Natural & Safe management of Lactose Intolerance, Yamoo tablets ( Lactase enzyme chewable tablets) have been introduced for the first time in India that helps break down lactose, and thus help relieve the symptoms of Lactose Intolerance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Lactose Intolerance is the inability to digest sugar (lactose) in milk and dairy products. Milk contains many water-soluble vitamins, protein, minerals like calcium, Lactose etc. Lactose is very important component as it is made up of glucose and galactose. Glucose gives the body energy. Our small intestine has lactase enzyme, which helps in breaking or digesting lactose into glucose and galactose. If lactase enzyme is deficient, Lactose will not get broken down and hence it will travel to large intestine, where it will be fermented. Undigested lactose in the colon and its fermentation products draws water into the colon (by osmosis). This leads to Abdominal Pain, Abdominal Distension, Diarrhoea, Borborygmi, Flatulence, Nausea, Vomiting. These symptoms are referred as Lactose Intolerance.
As discussed before, the main cause is lactase enzyme deficiency. There may be mild deficiency or very severe deficiency. Deficiency of lactase enzyme depends upon the genetic make-up of an individual. People in south India are more prone to have lactase deficiency, than the people of north India. It has been estimated that around sixty percent Indians manifest lactose intolerance.
Many a times gastrointestinal diseases like irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and GI infection may also cause symptoms of lactose intolerant. In all these diseases, there can be lactase deficiency in intestine. In GI infection, the epithelial lining of the villi may get sloughed off or destroyed. Actually, lactase enzyme is present at the tip of the villi. After destruction or deficiency, it takes at least 6 to 8 weeks to redevelop or become normal. If a patient takes lactose containing diet, he will suffer symptoms of lactose intolerance.
If a lactose intolerant person takes milk of dairy product, he will develop symptoms, starting from half an hour to one hour, which could be distention of abdomen, gas and flatulence, noisy abdomen/borborygmi, abdominal cramps, feeling of vomiting and diarrhoea. Many Indian leave drinking milk in the morning as after drinking milk they develop abdomen fullness or distention. Severity of symptoms may vary from person to person. This depends upon the tolerance or threshold levels, which may vary due to varying levels of lactase enzyme deficiency. Some may not be able to tolerate even a slightest level of lactose in diet. This can also be referred as lactose malabsorption. This is not a life-threatening condition, but it causes lots of uncomfortable situation for the patients. A person will not be able to tolerate milk and dairy products and hence he may not be able to enjoy, parties and food. His quality of life may be disturbed. Imagine, you are not able to drink tea, coffee, shakes etc. Sometimes it can also lead to depression and some may even develop low confidence and low self-esteem.
When lactase is deficient in small babies/infants they may develop same symptoms, but may cry excessively, which is known as infant colic. Sometimes the baby will pass stool which will be acidic in nature. This may cause perianal rash /nappy rash (rash in anal region)
Yamoo tablet contains Lactase enzyme 4500 FCC. When taken along the milk and dairy products, there is reduction in symptoms of boating, gas, abdominal cramps and dairrhea, as lactose gets digested by lactase. Yamoo helps you to enjoy milk and dairy products.
We are recommending using 1-2 tablets, immediately before or with first bite/sip of dairy (lactose) containing meal/drink. Number of tablets depends on the food which a person is eating and how much lactose it has in it, coupled with the individual\u2019s sensitivity to lactose. Tablet has to be chewed thoroughly before swallowing. If a person continues to consume food and drinks containing dairy after 20 to 45 minutes, he should take another tablet. If missed, we recommend taking immediately.
The dose of Yamoo (lactase) is dependent of the amount of lactose and the size of the meal consumed. In general, a larger meal remains in the stomach for longer and therefore less enzyme is required then when the same amount of lactose is consumed with a light meal or just a glass of milk. Generally 2,500 FCC lactase can be used per 10 \u2013 13 grams of lactose consumed. Hence we recommend a dose of 4,500 FCC with each lactose-containing meal. For very sensitive lactose-intolerant consumers (needing a 100% conversion) 9000 FCC per meal is recommended. Over time, consumers will quickly establish an effective dose.
