1) What is Lactose Intolerance?  What is the percentage of people suffering from lactose intolerance?
Lactose intolerance is a dietary condition that arises when the body does not produce enough lactase enzymes, normally produced by the small intestine to digest lactose in foods. Lactose intolerance can be hereditary or can develop as a result of gastrointestinal disorders that damage the digestive tract. It is estimated that up to 70% of the world population suffer from lactose intolerance. According to a U.S. study, 90% of Asians have this condition. Furthermore, an NUS study has been estimated that 95% of Singaporean Chinese suffer from lactose intolerance

2) What is milk allergy? 
Milk protein that has not been broken down by digestive enzymes may trigger allergic reactions throughout the body, with symptoms that may include redness of lips, abdominal cramps (colic), vomiting and/or diarrhea. Cows' milk allergy is mainly a condition of infancy and around nine out of ten of those affected grow out of it by the age of three. If anyone has a concern, they should consult a medical doctor. Please note that milk allergy is different from lactose intolerance.

3) Products proven to be effective for lactose intolerance? DairyCare is the only proven once-a-day dairy digestive supplement that effectively takes care of lactose intolerance. There are a few short-acting lactase replacement supplements available that require dosages prior to every meal containing foods with lactose (e.g. dairy). This is not only inconvenient but these supplements may not fully eliminate the symptoms of lactose intolerance. At present, there are no products available in Singapore that specifically treats lactose intolerance except DairyCare.

4) Dosage and duration of treatment of DairyCare?
For continuous relief or in cases of chronic lactose intolerance, it is recommended to take a dose of 2 capsules before breakfast and 2 capsules before dinner for 1 week, and then continue with a normal dosage of 1-2 capsules every morning before breakfast.

5) How long does it take after consuming DairyCare before you are able to drink milk or dairy products?
Immediately after the first dose of 2 capsules.

6) How can I be sure DairyCare works immediately? 
DairyCare effectively delivers “active” Lactobacillus Acidophilus cultures to the small intestine, without being eliminated by the stomach’s acid along the way (unlike other cultured products / yoghurt drinks) as a result of Dairy Care’s patented (No. 6,008,027) enteric coated capsules. Dairy foods/meal will take anytime from 30 minutes to 2 hours for the body to digest, and DairyCare’s “active” Lactobacillus Acidophilus cultures would have already been released in the small intestine before, thereby naturally producing the lactase enzyme required for lactose digestion.

7) How long has DairyCare been on the U.S. market?
7 years.

8) What is the percentage of success rate for DairyCare?
It works 100%.

9) Any negative side effects? Is DairyCare safe?
It is a completely safe digestive supplement with no negative side effects. A trial in the New York Consumer Test Market in 2000 achieved the sale of 2.6 million units without a single consumer complaint concerning its efficacy or side effects.

10) Any other health benefits of DairyCare?
DairyCare allows people, particularly lactose intolerant individuals, to enjoy the health benefits of dairy without any worries. It improves general digestion and mineral absorption (utilization of calcium, phosphorous and iron). It also replaces natural bacterial flora; enhances immune system by synthesizing niacin, ascorbic acid and B12; improves regular bowel movements; fights infectious diarrhea and yeast infections; as well as naturally lowering cholesterol levels.

11) Why is the enteric coating of capsule important?
Enteric coating of the capsules helps to effectively deliver “active” Lactobacillus Acidophilus cultures to the small intestine, without being eliminated by the stomach’s acid along the way, unlike other cultured products.

12) There are many products on the market with Lactobacillus Acidophilus cultures, why is DairyCare unique and different?
DairyCare is unique because of its enteric coating, which allows more “active” Lactobacillus Acidophilus cultures to reach the small intestine without them being destroyed by stomach acid. This safe and effective supplement is the only one that uses an exclusive and proprietary processing technology to manufacture in this form the only “active” Lactobacillus Acidophilus product on the market at present.

13) What is the importance of milk and dairy foods?
Milk should be included in every healthy well-balanced diet as it is not only a natural source of calcium required for strengthening teeth and bones (which thereby prevents bone degenerative diseases like osteoporosis), it is also the only natural source of other vitamins and minerals like Vitamin D ( absorbs calcium), Vitamin A (for healthy skin and eyes), Vitamin B6 (builds protein and blood cells), Vitamin B12 (helps form healthy blood cells), Riboflavin (keeps skin, eyes and nerves healthy while providing energy to the cells), Potassium (fluid balance), Zinc (builds protein and aids immune response), and a good and healthy source of protein and carbohydrates. Studies have proven that milk can also reduce the risk of heart disease (high cholesterol etc.), hypertension and blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, as well as lower the risk of certain cancers. Recent research has also confirmed that milk can help with weight-loss and fat control. For more information on dairy, please go to About Dairy.

14) Why not just take lactase enzyme supplements when you have dairy products?
These lactase enzyme replacement products are short-acting and require the consumer to take them prior to every meal/snack with foods containing lactose while DairyCare only requires consumers to take a dose a day for 24 hours protection against the symptoms of lactose intolerance.

 15) Who is the inventor of DairyCare?
American physician, Dr. Bruce Langner, developed DairyCare to help his wife who suffered from lactose intolerance.

16) What are the credibilities of DairyCare?
DairyCare is the only U.S. patented supplement that effectively helps the body naturally produce the lactase enzyme required for lactose digestion. It has been sold with significant success and consumer acceptance in the U.S for the past 7 years – trial in the New York Consumer Test Market in 2000 resulted in the sales of 2.6 million units without a single consumer complaint concerning its efficacy or side effects. A well-established pharmaceutical distribution company, United Italian Trading Corporation (since 1963) has been appointed the sole distributor of DairyCare in Singapore.

17) How can I find out if I'm lactose intolerant?
Visit your doctor or a gastroenterologist who can test if you are lactose intolerant by conducting a Hydrogen Ion Breath test or Stool Acidity test. You can also diagnose yourself with a simple test at home, please go to About Lactose Intolerance for test directions and more information.

18) Is there any reason that I should take DairyCare even if I'm not lactose intolerant?
There definitely is. DairyCare benefits your health and well-being as a result of its "active" probiotic Lactobacillus Acidophilus, which has been proven to improve general digestion, prevent diarrhea and yeast infection, increase mineral absorption, cancer suppression, cholesterol reduction, as well as enhance the immune system.
