A current estimate postulates that there are anywhere between 30 and 50 million Americans who are lactose intolerant.White Caucasian Americans are at the lowest risk for lactose intolerance, about 15% of the pie, while Native Americans, African Americans, and Hispanics are about 75% more likely to be lactose intolerant.A staggering 90% of Asian Americans are likely to be lactose intolerant.Lactose intolerance can be painful and at times embarrassing, but it can prevent one from consuming foods that bring them pleasure.
When one is described as being lactose intolerant, it translates into that person’s body not possessing enough lactase. Lactase is the enzyme our body uses to break down and digest the main sugar found in dairy products known as lactose.When more lactose is consumed than there is lactase enzyme, it can cause painful bloating and gas, severe indigestion, and diarrhea.This happens because the lactose is not absorbed in the digestive tract and is left instead to ferment, tormenting the consumer.

I would consider not being able to eat fast food a big pro. Celiac desisae has forced me to learn how to cook and bake much earlier than all of my friends have, and my awareness about nutrients and food ingredients is much greater as well. Most people don't even know what's in the stuff that they are eating. I would consider not being able to be very spontaneous about eating out at reataurants a con, although I rarely eat out anyway.
These pills work just as well as the expensive brands. They are priced at a point where I don't have to worry about eating something with dairy in it because I can always afford to have the pills with me. The quick service from SeaCoast is always a plus.
The Seacoast Mega Potency Lactase Enzyme really works. I can eat anything with milk products while taking these pills. There are no side effects. The price is half the price of any brand you find in stores. It's very difficult to eat much of anything without them. I am so glad I found this website.
I have been using another brand from Walmart for many years. When they raised the price for half as many pills I ordered the brand from SeaCoast. These pills have worked much better than anything I have ever used. Just a few pills with food with diary and not only is there not diarhhea, there isn't even any gas. No bloating, no discomfort. I am very happy with this brand and also with the price, which is less than the original Walmart price. Thanks Seacoast.
