About 1.4 million adult Canadians have been diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance (LI), and estimates of the total LI population in Canada are as high as 25% or 8.5 million. Most treatment approaches involve the use of lactase-based digestive enzymes, consumption of dairy products with lactose removed, or complete avoidance of dairy products altogether. These choices can be costly and inconvenient. NOW® Sulmedol® can restore and maintain lactose tolerance providing real freedom from lactose intolerance.
- Restores and maintains lactose tolerance
- Sublimed Sulfur - a unique mineral form
- Eliminates the need for Lactase enzymes
Each capsule contains:
Sublimed Sulfur (USP) 200 mg
Non-Medicinal Ingredients: Cellulose, Veg Capsule (hypromellose, water), Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source), Silica.
Directions: Adults and Adolescents (11 and over) Dosage: Take 1 capsule, twice daily immediately after meals until symptoms of lactose intolerance disappear (generally from 2 to 12 weeks), then continue taking for an additional 4 weeks after symptoms have disappeared. For best results, cease consumption of all foods containing dairy (except when testing for symptoms), including lactose-free dairy products as well as lactase enzymes, and ensure proper hydration and adequate B-12 intake while taking SULMEDOL®. Relapse may eventually occur; in which case, resume treatment as directed.
Cautions: Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant, diabetic or allergic to sulfites or sulfur-containing drugs. Do not use if you are constipated, experience diarrhea unrelated to the consumption of milk and dairy products, or if you have severe anemia, peptic ulcer, kidney or liver failure. Temporary bloating or flatulence may occur during the first few days of treatment. Consult a health-care practitioner if symptoms persist.
