About 70-75% of the world's population can no longer fully utilize lactose after infancy. As a result, the unsplit lactose reaches the large intestine, where it absorbs and ferments intestinal bacteria. The resulting fermentation products lactate, methane and hydrogen subsequently lead to flatulence and diarrhoea. In order to promote digestive performance in cases of lactose intolerance, it is advisable to undergo targeted, prompt enzyme replacement therapy with a lactase-containing preparation that increases the capacity for enzymatic lactic acid cleavage and reduces undesirable symptoms.
