WHAT IS EASYCOL BABY?
Easycol BABY is a food supplement specially developed for parents whose baby suffers from transient lactase deficiency. While other treatments aim to relieve discomfort caused by digestive problems, Easycol BABY acts solving the problem, in addition to being a safe and natural product that does not cause any side effects.
Easycol BABY contains lactase, an enzyme naturally produced, that helps to digest lactose, the sugar found in breast milk and infant formulas. With the hydrolysis of lactose in two simple monosaccharides, glucose and galactose, the body can absorb these nutrients and get all the energy needed for natural growth and development.
During the first months of life, newborn's digestive system presents a certain degree of immaturity and does not produce enough lactase to hydrolyze the lactose. This condition, associated in many cases with babies suffering from digestive problems, is known as transient lactase deficiency. This situation occurs because a group of bacteria ferments the not hydrolyzed lactose in milk before reaching the colon. The fermentation of not hydrolyzed lactose produces a large amount of substances and gases. This process is responsible of the baby’s discomfort and finishes in an episode of digestive problems with acid diarrohea always followed by prolonged and intense crying.
Easycol BABY acts compensating transient lactase deficiency in the baby's digestive system, which helps hydrolyze the unprocessed lactose by the digestive system. The newborn will stop feeling discomfort, and digestive problem episodes will disappear.
*Scientific studies have shown a significant reduction in the duration of cries in newborns whose milk has been treated with lactase enzyme. This fact demonstrates the effectiveness of Easycol BABY
If baby’s cries persist or if there are any concerns about the baby’s health or wellbeing, you should seek professional medical advice.
HOW TO USE EASYCOL BABY
Easycol Baby can be used from birth and whenever your baby’s lactase deficiency needs to be compensated during early life. A body generally starts begin to produce more enzymes after the first 4 months. It is then when the newborn will have have fewer problems to digest the milk. It may be possible to gradually reduce the dose of Easycol BABY after this period. If you notice that your baby is suffering digestive problems again after reducing the dose, you must return to the same dose that the baby was taking before the reduction.
