Lacteeze tablets and drops work differently so understanding these differences will help you choose the right product for you and your family.
Clinical studies have shown that approximately 40% of babies medically diagnosed with colic actually suffer from transient lactose intolerance. Pre-treating baby’s feeds with lactase enzyme supplements is shown to reduce crying time in these babies by at least 45%.
Transient lactose intolerance is commonly caused by an immature digestive system, so symptoms often resolve at about 3-4 months of age.
We recommend Lacteeze Drops for babies and infants up to the age of 2 years. Lacteeze Drops can be used to pre-treat babies feeds to reduce the lactose content. Lacteeze drops are suitable for breast and bottle feeding and have no flavouring. Drops are also great for people wanting to make their own lactose-free products at home.
TODDLERS / CHILDREN
Lacteeze Children’s Strength tablets are specially formulated for children aged 2 to 12 years. Containing 3,000 ALU of lactase enzymes, 1 to 2 tablets per dose is suitable for most children eating a normal serve of dairy, e.g. cereal with milk or an ice cream.
The Children’s Strength tablets are strawberry flavoured, which most children love!
Children’s Strength tablets can be chewed or swallowed.
CHILDREN OVER 12 YEARS AND ADULTS WITH MILD TO MODERATE LACTOSE INTOLERANCE
Lacteeze Extra Strength tablets contain 4,000 ALU of lactase enzymes. Children over 12 years and adults with mild lactose intolerance may find 1 tablet is sufficient to eliminate symptoms after eating a normal serve of dairy. People with more moderate lactose intolerance may require 2 tablets.
The Extra Strength tablets have recently been re-formulated with a milder peppermint flavour – so they taste pleasant but leave no after-taste.
Extra Strength tablets can be chewed or swallowed.
ADULTS WITH MODERATE TO SEVERE LACTOSE INTOLERANCE
Lacteeze Ultra caplets contain 9,000 ALU of lactase enzymes, over double the strength of the Extra Strength tablets. This makes them perfect for people with more severe lactose intolerance as 1 caplet will provide relief for a normal serve of dairy.
The Ultra caplets have a mild vanilla flavour, and again can be chewed or swallowed.
