You might have seen it written in the packed milk that it contains “Lactose”. What exactly is Lactose?

Lactose is a kind of sugar usually present in dairy products such as milk, curd, etc. Our intestines produce Lactase enzyme to convert this lactose into simple glucose. If our body fails to produce this enzyme, then this may cause Lactose Intolerance, which forbids lactose from getting digested and absorbed.

During intolerance, the intestines contract and kids feel severe cramps, headaches, vomiting and many more conditions as the lactose particles start to enter the body.

Let’s find out the ways we can use to handle Lactose Intolerance especially in Kids:

Goat Milk

Goat milk is healthy for the body and can be digested easily. It is rich in fatty acids and has less lactose present in it, which helps the body to absorb and assimilate it easily. Goat milk reduces the levels of casein in the body since it is rich in potassium, phosphorus, pantothenic acid as well as iodine and calcium.

Calcium Rich Foods

Calcium is not only beneficial for our bones, but also for our body since it is an anti-osteoporosis mineral. Taking a good amount of calcium daily in food can improve the heart’s health, protects the body from colon and rectal cancer and lead to controlled body weight. To reduce lactose intolerance, one should take broccoli, yogurt, raw cheese, sardines and raw milk.

Take Digestive Enzymes that contains Lactase

During lactose intolerance, our body becomes deficient in lactase. So, taking effective digestive supplements can help in proper breakdown of carbs, fats as well as proteins. These promote the efficient working of the digestive organs. Taking proper digestive supplements before a meal can cure lactose intolerance and malabsorption disorders through proper digestion.

Use Organic Fermented Dairy

Organic Fermented Dairy product is quite beneficial for health as it is easy to digest.  Vitamin K2 present in organic fermented dairy products helps in enhanced metabolism and acts as an important nutrient to tackle lactose intolerance.
