In case of lactase deficiency, the use of these products is contraindicated. If restrictions are neglected, a person may develop diarrhea and flatulence. Elena Smirnova explained that this condition develops with a deficiency of an enzyme that processes milk sugar (lactose). Therefore, when milk is included in the diet, the lactose that it contains enters the digestive tract unprocessed. In this case, the intestinal microflora begins to produce carbon dioxide, water and lactic acid, which inflate the bowel loops.
According to the expert, cheeses, cream and kefir have a negative impact on health. The latter also harms the body if there is a history of gastritis and enteritis. A fresh product has a laxative effect, while an infused product for two or three days, on the contrary, strengthens.
