A Lactose Free Diet Plan is advisable for person suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. If your digestive system finds it difficult to digest lactose which is the milk sugar then using this very same type of a diet can be very beneficial.
In our body there is an enzyme (protein) called Lactase and it's function is to break down the Lactose so that it gets into the bloodstream after the digestion is complete in the digestive tract. If the lactose taken in the food can not be broken down and does not get into the internal blood stream then it can easily go on and build up in the large intestine and cause discomfort leading to nausea, bloating, cramps, flatulence, diarrhea. You will feel these terrible discomfort usually 60 minutes after eating the food which contains lactose and is not digested. Also the symptoms one will get will depend on a person's tolerance to lactose. This type of problem is known as Lactose Intolerance.
