Do you frequently suffer gastrointestinal problems after consuming dairy products? You may then be suffering from lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance affects approximately 10 % of the population in Germany. As many as 90 % have this condition in China or Africa. People suffering from lactose intolerance produce no or insufficient lactase – an enzyme split from milk sugar. Lactose therefore remains in the intestine and is a good source of nutrition for bacteria. This leads to the production of gases and acids that may provoke severe discomfort such as stomach ache, diarrhoea and flatulence.
In these cases many people do without protein-rich products, quickly leading to a protein deficiency. Body Attack offers a string of lactose-free and lactose-reduced protein products that people with lactose intolerance can consume without concern. They can help supplement the diet to prevent protein deficiencies.
