Please check out this article below about Lactose Intolerance. I found this very informational and as I’m lactose intolerant myself I was very curious to see if it holds true about this product Lactagen. My mother turned me onto this because it worked for her and she’s going on 10 years. I’m currently on day 30, I feel great, and really cannot wait to start eating ice cream and milkshakes again!
Cure for Lactose Intolerance
Bloating, diarrhea, gas, cramps, and vomiting. For people with lactose intolerance, consuming any dairy products with lactose can cause hours of misery. Lactose intolerance, which is caused by a shortage of a specific enzyme called "lactase" in the large intestine, is the inability to digest lactose, the sugar in milk.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for lactose intolerance. Most people with lactose intolerance are forced to eliminate dairy completely from their diets or take expensive supplements with every meal with diary.
There are plenty of non-dairy and soy products available, but these alternatives can be prohibitively expensive, difficult to find when eating out, and lack the same flavor as favorite, now forbidden dairy products. If you have ever tried rice ice cream, it simply doesn’t have the same flavor or consistency of traditional ice cream made with dairy.
Dietary supplements are products which contain lactase, and when taken with your first bite or sip of dairy, allow many people with lactose intolerance to eat dairy foods without discomfort. They are, however, expensive over the course of a lifetime, do not work for everyone, and only work temporarily— and must be taken each and every time a lactose intolerant person eats dairy. Many people complain about the frustration of having to consistently make sure they carry packages and bottles of pills or powders with them in the car, at work, and at home.
Long- Term Solutions
However, there are some treatment options available that are effective solutions to coping with lactose intolerance. For example, Lactagen's™ one-time 38-day patent-pending formula allows the gradual and painless re-introduction of dairy into the digestive system. The program painlessly trains the body to be able to digest dairy products without the usual painful reactions.
