Lactase Baby - biologically active food supplement for children

December 16th, 2013

 Lactase Baby
 Lactase Baby - a dietary supplement (BAA), which includes the enzyme lactase, which breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into simple sugars. True lactase deficiency occurs in children less frequently, a lack of lactase usually occurs in the first two or three months of life, but then the child's digestion is restored.


How does a child lactase deficiency

Often a temporary lactase deficiency occurs in premature babies, who celebrated the functional immaturity of the various organs and systems. Disease manifested by the fact that a few minutes after feeding the baby becomes restless, cries, it is difficult to soothe. The abdomen is usually swollen, frequent stools, undigested.

The reason is that normally the lactose contained in milk (including in the female), in the small intestine can be decomposed into simple sugars - glucose and galactose, which are then absorbed into the blood, and are involved in metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
 . If not enough lactase in the intestine rapidly growing fermentation accompanied by flatulence and intestinal colic - which is why the baby cries.

Lactase - an enzyme that breaks down quickly under the influence of a variety of adverse circumstances. This is because that secrete its superficial mucosal cells of the small intestine. In this regard, the symptoms of lactase deficiency can occur in an infant Baby man, though with a little finger  Baby man, though with a little finger
   (as well as the child's age) after any disease.

If true lactase deficiency child begins to quickly fall behind in weight and overall development, and this state does not pass with age. We have to change the nature or power, or introduce additional lactase.


Lactase Baby - what is included in its composition?

The structure of biologically active additives to food includes standardized Baby Lactase enzyme lactase, which is produced from a mold, followed by a special cleaning. Lactase is produced by Baby Neyshnl Enzaym (USA) in capsules of 220 mg in a single package (the bank) contains 90 capsules.

Lactase supplements Baby can be used as an additional source of the enzyme lactase to children from birth, including premature babies, who are often in need of such a "feeding." BAA promotes the breakdown of lactose and normalizes intestinal microflora (increases the acidity of the intestinal contents, and this in turn creates favorable conditions for the development of normal microflora), improves digestion and functional condition of the gastrointestinal tract of the child. While taking lactase Baby baby calms down quickly, stop screaming, more actively suckles and sleeps peacefully.


When and how a child can be given lactase Baby

Any medications and dietary supplements, the child can be given up only on prescription. The same applies to the lactase Baby. Assign the supplements in the following cases:

  • newborns as replacement therapy in lactase deficiency or functional immaturity of enzymatic systems;
  • when it acquired lactase deficiency - children recovering from an intestinal infection, antibiotic treatment Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?  Antibiotics - whether they will help you in the foreseeable future?
 Which led to the development of dysbiosis and so on;
  • atopic dermatitis - to improve digestion of breast milk for children up to a year and dairy products for children after a year;
  • children long and often ill - for correction of immunity (deficiency of glucose Glucose: The energy source  Glucose: The energy source
   It interferes with the absorption of the protein, and therefore suffers immunity).

Infants contents of the capsule lactase Baby bred and give the expressed milk from a spoon for 10 minutes before feeding. Children from one to five years the contents of multiple capsules (how many - the doctor says) diluted with warm milk or yogurt. Children from five to seven years, the capsule can be given in its entirety.
