The Lowdown on Lactose Intolerance

Millions of people around the world are lactose intolerant, meaning that they cannot digest lactose, the sugar found in dairy products. This leads to unpleasant symptoms, such as bloating, abdominal cramps, indigestion, and diarrhea. Many people find that while they could tolerate milk and cheese when they were younger, as they reach adulthood, they can no longer comfortably consume dairy products. This is because as we age, our supplies of the enzyme lactase,which is responsible for breaking down lactose in our digestive systems, deplete.. In fact, most people end up losing this enzyme to some degree as they age, meaning that most people eventually become lactose intolerant! This is mind-blowing considering how much lactose is in the standard American diet.
