#15 Tolerate MilkMilk carries a natural sugar known as lactose. The enzyme that breaks down lactose is known as lactase . People who are known as lactose intolerant lack enough of the enzyme lactase and therefore are unable to complete the digestion of lactose. It is the undigested lactose that cause cramping gas, and the bloating, Lactose intolerant is fairly common and as we get older we're more likely to become lactose intolerant. The think is not all dairy contains a lot of lactose. Dairy products such as cheese and yogurt can have very low levels of lactose, this is because much of it is broken down during the processing. In any case people tend to suffer with varying degree of lactose intolerance, and many are able to eat cheese and small amounts of milk ( in coffee or tea) If you don't know if you're lactose intolerant you can have your family doctor test you for it to see. If you are in question then you should find out if you're indeed lactose intolerant and then you can prevent unnecessary bloating from dairy products.
