Hello there, will i able to absorb calcium from the dairy products if i use lactase supplements to consume dairy food?

Yes...but.: You would generally absorb the calcium from these foods whether you take lactase enzyme or not. What you don't absorb or metabolize if you do not is the lactose sugar. If not digested.absorbed that sugar is broken down by gut bacteria creating an acid that triggers cramping & loose stools in most. While it is uncomfortable it does not stop the absorption of other nutrients nearby.
