Many people who experience digestive discomfort from consuming dairy products assume they are lactose intolerant, but still do not find relief using traditional lactase enzyme supplements. Their discomfort may actually be attributed to an immune response from the protein components of dairy, not intolerance to the lactose.
Lactose, a carbohydrate found in dairy products, is too large for the body to absorb. The enzyme lactase is required to break it down into simple units, or simple sugars, allowing the body to digest and absorb them.
Lactose intolerance is a common condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough lactase enzymes to break down lactose. An individual with lactose intolerance will develop symptoms within 20 minutes to two hours after consuming dairy products. The most common symptoms are stomach pain, gas, bloating and cramping. More extreme symptoms include diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, foul-smelling stool, and stools that float.
Whey and casein are protein components of milk, and are common ingredients in protein-delivering nutritional supplements such as sports beverages/bars and meal replacement products. These proteins must be broken down by enzymes in order to be used by the body. Discomfort can result from the consumption of high-protein products and/or the body’s lack of a sufficient amount of a protease enzyme required for protein digestion. Symptoms include bloating, nausea, cramping, and pain.
Protein sensitivity can also present itself as an overreaction or hypersensitive reaction of the body’s immune system. The protein may be harmless, but the body recognizes it as a foreign substance and launches a defensive response.

Dairylytic is a dual-functioning enzyme blend formulated with a combination of both lactose and a unique protease enzyme blend developed solely for superior protein degradation. This innovative combination is designed to break down the lactose associated with intolerance, as well as make milk proteins that could cause an immune response easier to digest and absorb.

Numerous in vitro studies performed under physiological conditions have shown the superior ability of Dairylytic to break down both the lactose and proteins present in dairy.
The chart below shows the rate of hydrolysis of the lactose found in one 8oz glass of milk along with the supplement Dairylytic. Dairylytic breaks down lactose quickly and efficiently over a 90 minute time period under physiological conditions of the body.
Casein is made up of many different proteins that must be broken down into smaller peptides. The smaller the peptides, the more likely it is to be absorbed by the body. The chart below shows that Dairylytic breaks down casein to very small peptides within 30 minutes, and achieves complete hydrolysis in 90 minutes.
Whey protein is typically a mixture of beta-lactoglobulin (≈65%) and alpha-lactalbumin (≈25%) proteins. The smaller the peptides, the less likely they will bind to antibodies, decreasing the chance of an immune response. The chart below shows that Dairylytic breaks down whey to very small peptides within 15 minutes, and achieves complete hydrolysis in 90 minutes.
What is Dairylytic?
Dairylytic is a dual functioning enzyme blend formulated to address not only lactose intolerance, but also protein sensitivity, greatly reducing the chance of digestive discomfort from dairy consumption.
How does it work?
Dairylytic contains lactase to break down the lactose that is associated with intolerance. It also contains a unique protease developed solely for superior protein digestion, in order to break down the proteins present in dairy that could cause an immune response.
Is it Vegetarian or Vegan?
The formula is vegetarian and vegan in accordance with the guidelines of the American Vegetarian Association.
Is it non-GMO?
The microorganisms used to produce this enzyme product are not genetically engineered organisms as defined by the National Organic Standards Board. Genetically engineered is defined as follows:
