Nutritionist Kuzina: Should You Give Up Milk After 50?

You can often hear that with age, the human body begins to tolerate lactose – milk sugar – worse.

Nutritionist Katerina Kuzina told Vechernaya Moskva whether it is necessary to give up milk after 50 years. She believes that the decision on such a refusal should be made individually. In many ways, recommendations about its necessity are determined by the body’s individual reactions to milk, its ability to digest lactose, Kuzina noted.

“If you do not have lactose intolerance or other health problems associated with the consumption of dairy products, consume them in moderation may be useful,” the nutritionist stated.
The expert noted that a healthy diet in adulthood can be the key to good health, and dairy products can be quite appropriate in it.
