Lactose intolerance help!

Need some input from all of you out there in the Health World. If you don’t know from my profile I am a personal trainer by day. I was talking with one of my clients last week about what she should not be eating and of course she confessed that she was eating PIZZA! The worst gut killer and weight gainer of all! Anyhow her excuse was that she was recently cured of lactose intolerance by a product called Lactagen (which is why she stated that she couldn’t resist eating pizza again).

 

Anyhow I’ve been lactose intolerant since high school and I’ve never heard of lactagen before but my client swears by this and is going around telling everyone about it. Has this worked for anyone else? I’ve been to the website and seen the hundreds of success stories. I need some feedback if this is real or not. It’s only $130 bucks so I’m going to buy it tonight but if anyone can tell me how the program works and what to expect it would be appreciated. At this point I’d be willing to pay anything to not feel like **** everytime I eat anything with dairy in it. Plus they say they’ll give you your money back if it doesn’t work so what do I have to lose???

    I don't know anything about that, but if you're going to try it please let me know if it works for you.

     

     

    Thanks.

    You can never "cure" yourself of being lactose intolerant...it just masks the issue.  As a trainer, you should know about the health claims on pricey pills...consuming lactose based prodcuts can cause other intestinal damage and can lead to other issues such as gluten sensitivity, soy, food allergies, etc.  The digestive track is very complicated.  I would save the money...from one fitness professional to another.

    I just looked at the Lactagen website.  It certainly won't cure lactose intolerance, but rather alleviates the symptoms.  When you are lactose intolerant, your body does not produce the enzyme lactase which breaks down dairy.  It looks like this product contains digestive enzymes and probiotics that will help you digest dairy products...kinda like Lactaid.  It looks as though the difference is this populates your digestive tract over time and therefore will help with symptoms after you stop taking shakes.  I would imagine this would still be fairly temporary and you would have to start the program over again when the enzymes and probiotics has been depleted. 

     

     

    I see your original post was from the beginning of this month.  Did you give it a try?
