Probiotics & Lactose Intolerance
Question: Do probiotics help with lactose intolerance?
Answer: It has not been well demonstrated that probiotics reduce the gas and bloating caused by milk and dairy products in people with lactose intolerance. On the other hand, fermented milk products, such as yogurt and kefir, which contain live organisms (not necessarily "probiotics") have been shown to cause fewer symptoms of lactose intolerance than regular milk containing the same amount of lactose.
