Colief® Infant Drops - Lactase Enzyme Drops

The active ingredient in Colief® is lactase, a natural enzyme which we all need to digest the lactose in dairy products. All milk products, breast milk and most infant formulas contain the milk sugar lactose, and lactase is the enzyme normally produced in the body to break this down into simpler sugars, glucose and galactose, to allow these to be absorbed.

Lactase deficiency in new-born babies can lead to the temporary digestive discomfort - bloatedness, wind and griping pain - which results from undigested lactose in food.

This can be an important factor in some babies with Colic.

Colief® Infant Drops may help reduce the hours of crying by breaking down the lactose in the baby's usual milk and making this more easily digestible. Colief® may be used for all babies whether breast-fed or formula-fed, and is safe from birth.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
1. The active ingredient in Colief® is lactase, an enzyme which occurs naturally within the body. The addition of Colief® Infant Drops to a baby's milk merely compensates for a possible lactase deficiency in the infant's digestive system. Colief® Infant Drops added to the baby's usual milk greatly reduce the level of lactose by breaking this down into glucose and galactose, before the baby is fed. Studies have shown that the hours of crying may be greatly reduced when baby's usual milk is treated with Colief®.

2. Read and follow the leaflet instructions in the pack carefully. Add Colief® Infant Drops to your baby's milk - do not give the drops to your baby directly.

3. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions when making-up formula milk.

4. Colief® is an enzyme and is destroyed by heat. It works best in milk that is warm (not hot or cold).

5. Once opened, keep Colief® refrigerated but do not allow to freeze. Discard three weeks after opening and do not use after the Best-Before date stated on the pack.

6. Colief® is approved by the Advisory Committee on Borderline Substances and may be prescribed by doctors on the NHS.

7. IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS REGARDING YOUR BABY'S HEALTH, YOU SHOULD SEEK URGENT PROFESIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE.
