What is Lactium
Lactium represents a breakthrough approach for addressing stress-related concerns naturally. First developed by researchers attempting to identify a relationship between milk consumption and calmness after observing the calm state of a baby after drinking Lactium is a unique hydrolysate from milk proteins that contain a bioactive peptide with relaxing properties.
What is LactiumPURE
LactiumPURE is a special preparation of Lactium containing no intact milk casein as a carrier for the small peptide, further minimizing its allergenicity potential.
Where can I buy LactiumPURE
Currently, LactiumPURE is featured in Metagenics formulas for occasional sleeplessness (Benesom®) and support for distracted minds (Lumina®). Because the compound promotes a calm state and a healthy stress response, LactiumPURE is a perfect addition to the mood and cognition formulas at Metagenics.* Metagenics is the exclusive distributor of nutraceutical formulas containing LactiumPURE to health care professionals in the United States, Australia, and New Zealand.
Why recommend Benesom for occasional sleeplessness
The latest statistics reveal that up to 60 million Americans suffer from occasional sleeplessness. Unfortunately, our fast paced-society has created so much stress and sleep deprivation that what is really abnormal sleep is now almost the norm. Of course, difficulty sleeping and staying awake are actually two sides of the same coin, and many people show subtle signs of disturbed sleep, such as:
- Difficulty waking in the morning
- Daytime drowsiness or sleepiness
- Altered memory and physical performance (slower reaction times)
- Difficulty making simple decisions or doing math calculations
- Zoning out in the middle of a conversation or task
- Feeling emotional and volatile for no apparent reason
- Indecisiveness or altered judgment
- Difficulty concentrating
- Routinely falling asleep within 5 minutes of lying down
- Microsleeps very brief episodes of sleep, e.g., nodding off when otherwise awake
Because sleep is as essential for well-being as food and water, its important to address these disturbances quickly and effectively. So to offer an innovative and well-researched approach to help alleviate stress and improve sleeping patterns, Benesom features a clinically effective dose of LactiumPURE along with other targeted ingredients.
Why recommend Lumina for distracted minds
Even at high doses, LactiumPURE has no sedative effect. Instead, people who take LactiumPURE may feel more relaxed. So in addition to helping patients feel calmer in the evenings, LactiumPURE helps to support a healthy stress response during daytime activities. Metagenics Lumina formula combines LactiumPURE with additional supportive nutrients to address mental focus, relaxation, and complaints of a distracted mind.
What is the difference between Lactium and LactiumPURE
Also a hydrolysate of milk proteins, Lactium is made with intact casein, a protein found in cows milk. Up until now, however, for those with milk allergies casein was not an option. That is why Metagenics has developed LactiumPURE, a professional-grade raw material safe for people with milk allergies. LactiumPURE offers the same powerful, fast-acting relaxation benefits of Lactium and boasts an excellent safety profile. This proprietary complex still originates from bovine skimmed milk, except that during its manufacture, aSl casein enriched fraction is separated from the skimmed milk and is subsequently hydrolysed by the proteolytic enzyme trypsin, which is a protease found in the gastrointestinal tract of the newborn and adults.
Is Lactium considered a safe dietary ingredient
The overall safety of casein tryptic hydrolysate is supported by the results of toxicology testing in animals and clinical studies in humans. Additionally, the Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status of peptones and the history of safe exposure to hydrolyzed alpha sl casein from bovine milk and infant formula support the safety of Lactium as a nutritional supplement.
