This Kind Of Gas Isn’t Good: Are You Lactose Intolerant?

Do you know anyone who can’t consume milk or milk-based products? The condition is not uncommon and these people are classified as lactose intolerant.

Lactose is the main carbohydrate or sugar found in milk, and in varying quantities in dairy products made from milk including yoghurt, ice cream, soft cheeses and butter. Lactose (milk sugar) intolerance results from an inability to digest lactose in the small intestine.

Back in the cave-days, the only time a person would ever ingest lactose would be when they were infants getting milk from their mothers. During their adult lives milk was never consumed. Only with the invention of agriculture has milk become readily available to adults. Lactose is unique in that only in milk does it exist as a free form, unattached to other molecules.

What causes lactose intolerance?

Lactose is digested in the small intestine by an enzyme called lactase. This enzyme allows the body to break down the lactose into two simple sugars, glucose and galactose. These are quickly    Digestive System -- Lactose Intolerance -- 7.10.13absorbed by the intestine and provide energy for the body. The level of the lactase enzyme varies between individuals, as does the severity of the symptoms caused by lactose intolerance.

What are the symptoms of lactose intolerance?

Symptoms range from milk abdominal discomfort, bloating and excessive wind — ‘gas’ — to sever abdominal cramps and diarrhoea.

How is it treated?

There is no cure for lactose intolerance. But you can treat your symptoms

by limiting or avoidingmilk products. Some people use milk with reduced

lactose, or they substitute soy milk and soycheese for milk and milk products.

Some people who are lactose-intolerant can eat yogurt without problems,

especially yogurt with live cultures. You can also take dietary supplements

called lactase products that help digest lactose. In time, most people who

have lactose intolerance get to knowtheir bodies well enough to avoid symptoms.

One of the biggest concerns for people who are lactose-intolerant is making

sure they get enough of the nutrients found in milk products, especially calcium.

Calcium is most important for children,teens, pregnant women, and women after


There are many nondairy foods that contain calcium, including:

·         Broccoli, okra, kale, collards, and turnip greens.

·         Canned sardines, tuna, and salmon.

·         Calcium-fortified juices and cereals.

·         Calcium-fortified soy products such as soy milk, tofu,                           and soybeans.

·         Almonds.

 Substitutes for lactose-containing foods

Lactose intolerance generally isn’t serious and can be controlled by some simple changes in your diet. The dietary changes for lactose intolerance should include the exclusion of those foods highest in lactose. There is now a wide range of fresh soy milks, yoghurts and ice creams which are lactose free and calcium enriched. Many dairy foods actually have little or no lactose so you can continue to enjoy them.

 The Power of Soy Protein

 Soy-based products are also on the rise for very healthy reasons. The humble soybean boasts some extraordinary benefits. Lactose-free, soy protein is a “complete protein” which contains all 9 essential amino acids in the right balance to meet your body’s needs. Soy protein is the only plant protein that is complete. This makes it a great substitute for many meats, allowing you to eliminate more saturated fat and cholesterol from your diet.

While soybeans have much to offer from a protein perspective, it is because they contain so many nutrients, such as isoflavones, that they are now the centre of so much attention. Soy protein enhances the body’s ability to retain and better absorb calcium into the bones. Soy isoflavones help by slowing bone loss and inhibiting bone breakdown.

May we also suggest a product which many have experience great success with the side effects of lactose intolerance.  This product is all natural and called Pro Digest.

10 Small Steps To Improve Your Health

Many of us make health-related resolutions, such as to lose weight, stop smoking or join the neighborhood health club. While it is common to set high goals, experts say that setting smaller goals could do more for our health.

“Small steps are achievable and are easier to fit into your daily routine,” says James O. Hill, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. “They are less overwhelming than a big, sudden change.”

Here Are 10 Steps To Do:

1.   Stop gaining weight. Even if you gain just a pound or two every year, the extra weight adds up  quickly.

2.   Take more small steps. Use a pedometer to count your daily steps; then add 2,000, the equivalent of one extra mile. Keep adding steps, 1,000 to 2,000 each month or so, until you take 10,000 steps on most days.

3.   Eat breakfast. Breakfast eaters tend to weigh less and have better diets overall. For a filling and nutrition-packed breakfast, top Whole Grain Total®  with fresh fruit slices and low-fat or fat-free milk.

4.   Switch three grain servings each day to whole grain. If you’re like the average American, you eat less than one whole grain serving a day.

5.   Have at least one green salad every day. Eating a salad (with low-fat or fat-free dressing) is filling and may help you eat less during the meal. It also counts toward your five daily cups of vegetables and fruits.

6.   Trim the fat. Fat has a lot of calories, and calories count. Purchase lean meats, eat poultry without the skin, switch to lower-fat cheeses, use a nonstick pan with only a dab of oil or butter.

7.   Consider calcium by including two or three daily servings of low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt. Dairy calcium is good for bones and may also help you lose weight.

8.   Downsize. The smaller the bag, bottle or bowl, the less you will eat.

9.   Lose just 5 to 10 percent of your current weight. The health benefits are huge-lower blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides.

10. Keep track of your eating. Write down what you eat over the next couple of days and look for problem spots. Often, just writing things down can help you eat less.
