Lactose Defense Formula helps to prevent the bloating, gas, and diarrhea that many lactose-intolerant people experience after eating foods that contain dairy. There are so many supplements on the market, but Lactose Defense Formula is a step above because it does not have to be taken with every meal. This formula combines probiotics with lactase enzyme, which helps break down lactose for hours after it reaches the digestive tract.
The probiotic in Lactose Defense Formula is patented GanedenBC30. It helps to support digestive function with specially isolated cultures that are coated with a hardened layer of organic material. This protection enables the cultures' survival through the acidic environment of the stomach and successfully arrives in the intestines, which is where they are the most beneficial. Many other probiotic strains are only able to travel to the upper part of the digestive tract, but GanedenBC30 is able to thrive in both the upper and lower part, and helps digest complex carbohydrates that can cause or worsen certain digestive issues.

This product is amazing! I only take one pill a day, and I can eat dairy any time I want. I've never had that luxury before in my life. Granted, I still maintain a healthy diet and don't eat a gallon of ice cream at a time, but I pretty much eat whatever I want. I never leave the house without taking this supplement. It has worked wonders!
