Are you lactose intolerant? Do dairy and cheese leave your stomach churning or your bottom toot’ing. If so, you may suffer from lactose intolerance. So how do you know if you suffer from lactose intolerance? This can happen as a direct result of your bodies inability to digest lactose. As a result,you will know because you experience a feeling of discomfort after eating or drinking dairy products. It could be something as simple as a milkshake, or that creamy Carbonara at your favourite restaurant and your stomach is sent into a spiral of cramps.
What are the common signs of lactose intolerance?
Lactose intolerance happens when your body does not produce enough lactase, an enzyme that breaks down the dairy products. Common signs of lactose intolerance are bloating, flatulence, stomach cramps, bloating, gas and diarrhoea. These signs usually occur 30 minutes to 2 hours after eating dairy.
Are you at risk?
Not everyone is lactose intolerant. There are only a couple of risk factors, which I will outline here. Firstly, age. Older people are more prone to getting lactose intolerance. Second, ethnicity. Lactose intolerance is most common among African, Asian, Hispanic, and American Indian descent. Third, infants who are born more than six weeks premature. They may have reduced levels of lactase because their small intestine did not develop lactase-producing cells at the time of their birth, resulting in temporary lactose intolerance. Fourth, diseases affecting the small intestines. Fifth, if you are receiving or have received cancer treatments.
What help can you take if you are lactose intolerant?
Lacteeze contains the enzyme lactase, which helps digest dairy products in the natural way. It is a natural enzyme (not a drug or medicine) found in the digestive system. It is great for people with food allergies as it is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Yeast Free. You take it during mealtime when you would like to eat dairy products. It will then support your digestive system to help break down this food and support against lactose intolerance symptoms.
