Has anyone out there tried Digestive Advantage for Lactose Intolerance?

http://www.ganedenbiotech.com/prod_adult_li.html

Someone I work with swears by the stuff. He used to be lactose intolerant and after taking it, he can eat dairy products again with no major problems. He admits that he can't overdo it with the dairy, but he can tolerate many foods that he could not before. Just wanted to see if anyone else out there had any experience with it before I try it.

I'm waiting for my free sample. They have a few different kinds - I hear the one for IBS is pretty good (not the chewable one though; contains sugar substitute that can cause some problems). They also have one for Crohns/Colitis I believe. Request a sample and check it out for yourself -- that's what I'm going to do.

Hubby tried the one for IBS and saw no difference. But he may not have stuck w/ it long enough. He didn't even finish the box.

Yes I use the Digestive Advantage Lactose Intolerant. It does work very well. Just like your friend I can't go crazy with the dairy, but can have some dairy now. I take the Lactose Intolerant one in the a.m. and the Crohns and Colitis one at night. The one for LI is great because you only have to take one a day and it has some probiotics in them also. The Lactaid ones work, but you have to take a bunch of them all thru out the day any time you want dairy, but this one is only once a day. Go to the site and request a free sample, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Good Luck!

Just like Julie says, it may work for some but not others. But I have had no bloating or problems at all. Actually helped to firm up my stools too. I actually thought I was flaring and turned out the it was from Lactose Intolerance (thanks PB4).

I've just started taking it for Crohn's and colitis. Not long enough to have an opinion  one way or another. I am hopeful, however. I figure it can't hurt, and may possibly help.

primadophilus reuteri aids with lactose intolerance (along with high cholseterol and vaginal heatlhy) and it does not contain aspertame like digestive advantage does, or any of the other un-necessary additives either.

PB4 does primadophilus reuteri you take state that it helps with lactose intolerance or has it just helped you in this way?

Thanks PB4. The Digestive Advantage does work well for me, but I want to try/add a different probiotic and see if that will help more with my belly.

You're very welcome nanners, it's done wonders for my crohns, that's what I originally was taking it for, I had no idea it was beneficial in other ways too...I havn't even had a single mouth sore since taking it everyday...that's the key, you have to take probiotics everyday...this primadophilus is affordable, works great (is most effective compared to flora Q that I tried and acidophilus from puritans pride) and only one/day is needed, the only downfall is it must be kept in the fridge, so if you go to buy it make sure they have it stored in their frigde.

I tried Digestive advantage when I was on different antibiotics. He really did help with the diarrhea but outside of the antibiotics I did not notice anything else.

I take Digestive Advantage for Crohn's/Colitis and find it to be very helpful. I highly recommend trying it, especially since you can get a free sample first to see if it works for you.

Thanks for everyone's advice. I just sent away for my free sample and we'll see what happens!
