Both fructose and galactose can refil muscle by being converted into glucose quite easily. Galactose by the Lelior pathway and fructose via the glycolysis/gluconeogenesis pathway. Here's an applicable blog post on the Perfect Health Diet Website:... (more)

It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?

Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.

Does lactose work well to replenish glycogen store after a workout? How does the body use this sugar?

Unless you are lactose intolerent, it gets metabolised into glucose and galactose, both of which can replenish your glycogen stores.

Does lactose consumption (of those with the enzyme lactase) have a similar effect to our bodies insulin production as added sugars in SAD foods?

Well it gives an insulin response but not from the lactose alone. A good read from Mark. ( p.s. testing blood glucose is not the same as testing insulin reaction. A food can produce an insulin response without a corresponding rise in bs.) (more)
