For the 80% of black folks who are lactose-intolerant, there’s a new product that may soothe that bubbly tummy. Touted as a one-time fix for lactose intolerance, Lactagen is a powdered dietary supplement that is taken with water or juice for 38 days. In a clinical trial, 80% of Lactagen takers reported significantly fewer symptoms than the group taking a placebo—even one month later. Lactagen is not FDA approved, and further testing is needed to study its long-term effects. Order Lactagen online at www.lactagen.com.
