About 65% of the population suffers from lactose intolerance!
For many, dairy has a negative effect on the body and mind. Switching to a dairy free diet can give us more energy, focus and stamina. It is often associated with facilitating weight loss while reducing bloating and discomfort from indigestion. Certain proteins in dairy are linked to increased mucus production, which in turn leads to a stuffy nose. In addition, a dairy-free lifestyle can dramatically help those who suffer from skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Going dairy free will provide clearer skin with a more youthful glow, and one of the first benefits you may notice is a flatter, more comfortable stomach and healthier digestive system.
It’s also important to realize that non-organic dairy cows are given growth hormones, antibiotics, and fed pesticide ridden feed; all of which we in turn ingest into our bodies! As with many ingredients that can be harmful to our health, poor quality dairy products are found abundantly in stores, restaurants, and meal services. IONutrition products and meal plans are all dairy free across the board using healthy alternatives as a source of vitamin D and calcium.
