People who are lactose intolerant are unable to digest lactose, which is the major sugar in milk. This happens due to a shortage of the enzyme lactase, which is produced in the small intestine. Those who are lactose intolerant may not be aware that colostrum can help with this condition, or that they can even take a colostrum supplement at all.
The truth is that colostrum has a very low level of lactose. It isn’t like conventional milk or dairy products—lactose levels rise quickly after a calf is born, so low levels of lactose actually indicate colostrum. Generally speaking, people who are lactose intolerant shouldn’t have any problems with colostrum. In fact, some people have even reported that they no longer experience lactose intolerance issues after taking colostrum.
That’s right, it’s possible for bovine colostrum to help lactose intolerant people build their ability to not only digest, but process dairy. Colostrum has been shown to rebuild the permeability of the gut lining, and can provide the building blocks needed to balance the system. Overcoming this imbalance can help you once again become tolerant of dairy.
If you suffer with dairy issues and want to see if colostrum can help you overcome this imbalance, be sure to practice moderation. Start with a lower dose of Colossal™ and allow your body to begin the enzymatic production slowly. Our all-natural, liquid bovine colostrum could be just what you need to overcome this intolerance once and for all.
