Colief® INFANT DROPS

Colief® Infant Drops aids digestion of lactose in milk in a baby temporarily unable to produce sufficient lactase to fully digest the lactose. For the first few months of life, some babies are temporarily unable to fully break down lactose, a complex sugar that is found in both breast and formula milk. As a result, undigested lactose passes through the baby’s digestive system and is absorbed by naturally present bacteria creating acid and gas in the process. Colief® Infant Drops reduces the amount of lactose in milk to make it more suitable for digestion and milk treated by Colief® helps to reduce the amount of undigested lactose available to the natural bacteria.

 

The lactase in Colief® Infant Drops is a natural enzyme which breaks down the lactose in the milk by up to 70%, aiding digestion and reducing the hours of crying. A few drops are simply added to the milk before each feeding until the baby is three to four months old, by which time the symptoms should have disappeared. Colief®, the first lactase enzyme drops developed specifically for babies, has been trusted by mums in UK and Ireland for more than 20 years.

Colief® VITAMIN D3 DROPS

It is widely accepted that Vitamin D contributes to the normal growth and development of bones in children and the maintenance of bone growth in adults. It also helps maintain normal immune system function. Vitamin D can be absorbed via food intake or can be formed in the skin under the influence of sunlight.

Nevertheless, a deficiency is possible and in many cases a supplement of Vitamin D is required. Vitamin D is important for bone strength and development so is particularly important for babies and children. 

 

 

Topping up a child’s Vitamin D levels protects them from the more serious effects of deficiency, such as the childhood bone disorder rickets.
                                                                  Suitable for all the family, Colief® Vitamin D₃ Drops is a food supplement rich in Vitamin D₃ and the ideal solution for providing the required dose of Vitamin D₃.
