Can you become lactose intolerant?

"I used to be able to consume dairy. What changed?"

This is a common question we receive from individuals who, in their earlier years, enjoyed milk and ice cream without any discomfort. However, as they progressed into their college years, 30s, or later in life, they began encountering symptoms of lactose intolerance. Every time they consumed dairy, symptoms like gas, bloating, diarrhea, cramps, and more would follow. So, what causes this shift?

Without getting into the weeds too much, there's an enzyme called lactase that assists in breaking down lactose, the sugar found in milk. During infancy, when our primary diet consists of milk, our bodies naturally produce adequate lactase enzyme. However, as we grow beyond childhood, the gene responsible for producing lactase either slows down significantly or ceases entirely. When the body fails to generate sufficient lactase, that's when symptoms of lactose intolerance emerge.

This is where Milky comes into play. Milky contains lactase enzyme in tablet form, aiding our bodies in digesting and breaking down lactose. This enables individuals with lactose intolerance to enjoy their favorite dairy products without experiencing the negative side effects!
