Lactose Intolerance + Milk
Millions of people in the UK live with lactose intolerance. Up to 1 in 4 people struggle with digestive discomfort when they drink cow’s milk.
To avoid their uncomfortable symptoms, most either cut milk out of their diet completely or switch to a modified milk with artificially added lactase.
New research published in the UK has found that one of the proteins found in cows’ milk, called the A1 protein is in fact triggering their symptoms which means millions of people suffering symptoms of lactose intolerance could make a simple switch to a natural milk that is free from A1 and solve their issues with dairy!
The researchers found that respondents, including those with a medically diagnosed lactose intolerance, could drink a2 Milk™ without experiencing any symptoms, even though it contains lactose.
The research backs up previous reports that less than 5% of the population are actually lactose intolerant, and that many of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with dairy could actually be caused by the A1 protein, rather than lactose.
a2 Milk, which is naturally completely free of the A1 protein is now readily available in the UK, and many people have found they feel better when they drink a2 Milk, as opposed to regular cows’ milk. With a price of just £1.39 it seems well worth a try if you’re looking for a natural no-compromise nutritious alternative.
a2 Milk™ is available as whole and semi skimmed variety from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Morrisons.
