...Lactose Intolerance...

...Lactose Intolerance...
When most people think of Lactose, what comes to mind is usually basic information that's not particularly interesting or beneficial. But there's a lot more to it than just the basics.

Truthfully, the only difference between you and the experts is time. If you'll invest a little more time in reading, you'll be that much nearer to expert status when it comes to Lactose.

Does drinking milk bloat you up with enough gas to float around the world in 80 days? Does eating ice cream wake your neighbor from his afternoon nap caused by the subsequent intestinal rumblings? Does a cheese pizza in your belly produce enough diarrhea worthy of a laxative study? If so, you probably have lactose intolerance. Like the majority of humans that get some degree of intolerance to dairy products, your small intestine doesn't produce enough lactase, the natural sugar found in dairy products. But never fear, it's not dangerous. There is good news. You can have your ice cream and eat it, too. Here's how.

The obvious thing to do is decrease the amount of milk and dairy products you eat until your symptoms go away. Yet be sure to take calcium. Also never drink milk alone. Try to take your dairy products in small amounts with your meals. Eat yogart the organisms that make yogart what it is, also produce lactase to digest the lactose contained in yogart. You can also buy and add lactase to your milk or dairy products. The problem with this though is whether you add enough lactase or not. The big one is cheese. Hard cheeses are the best because they're fermented the most, and cheese has less lactose than milk.

I don't know if there's a growing interest in Lactose, but at least when people start looking for more information about it, you'll be in a position to meet their needs.
