I have been lactose intolerant for years. If I ate certain kinds of cheese, ice cream, yogurt or milk, I would have horrible stomach pain for hours the day after. For about 6 weeks, I have been taking 1-2 tsp of virgin coconut oil daily, and have noticed that my lactose intolerance symptoms have decreased by about 75 %. To test this theory, I ate more cheese in one day than I have ever been able to tolerate (nachos, cheesy bread, etc. ), and the next day - nothing! I have been quite a bit more liberal with my dairy intake, and if I have any discomfort at all, it's slight gas in my lower abdomen. I attribute this to the Virgin Coconut Oil, and hope it can help anyone else with this problem :)
