NOW Dairy Digest Complete is a comprehensive blend of enzymes that is formulated to aid in the digestion of dairy products. Intolerance to dairy is often due to the inability to digest milk sugar known as lactose. However, intolerance is also frequently related to the difficult-to-digest proteins and fats inherent in dairy products. NOW Dairy Digest Complete contains not only lactase for lactose digestion, but also proteases and lipases that specifically target milk proteins and fat for digestion. With Dairy Digest Complete, it is possible to ease temporary discomfort associated with the incomplete digestion of dairy products, while enjoying the taste and health benefits of them as well.
Take 1 Vcap with or before each meal containing dairy. One Vcap digests dairy products equivalent to one cup of whole milk.

Way better than Lactaid
Very effective product. Doesn't just help you digest lactose, but also the milk proteins that can also be difficult/impossible for your body to digest. I noticed a difference right away. As a bonus, it is also much less expensive than products like Lactaid. I will definitely continue using this product.
Although I'm not sure why, this product works better (and costs less) than the lactase product I've been taking, even though it has much less lactase. Apparently the gas and other discomfort is caused by more than just the lactose in the dairy products. Don't know if it works that well for everyone, but it's worth trying a bottle and seeing. I was surprised.
Often better for me than just lactase
I don't know why, but even though this product has less lactase than I typically get with a generic "lactaid" product I was buying, it seems to work better most of the time. There clearly are issues causing gas from milk products besides just the lactose in them. Anyway, it works and is a good price.
I've tried many enzymes in the 10 or so years that I've been intolerant, and this is the only one I've found that really works for me. Most meals with dairy, I just take one capsule. If eating a bowl of ice-cream, I usually take 2 or 3 depending on how much I'm eating. This is the only dairy enzyme I use and definitely recommend it to family and friends.
