Here's the Answer to Alleviating That Stinky Side Effect Your Protein Powder Causes

Protein is undoubtedly a powerful and precious part of our daily lives. It keeps you slim, keeps you full, provides you with fuel, and maximizes the effects of your workouts. And while we continue to adhere to the happy news of incorporating it into your daily lives, sneaking protein powder into our foods is causing a slightly stinky side effect of extra-fragrant flatulence. Does your protein powder cause this embarrassing side effect? According to certified trainer John Rowley, author of The Power of Positive Fitness, it's all about the type of protein in your powder. Whey, for instance can  be up to 30 percent fat, lactose, and milk, which can in turn upset your stomach and cause nose-plugging gas. The fix doesn't require you to toss your protein powder, however. Rather Rowley suggests that you opt for a whey protein isolate, which is just six to 10 percent fat, lactose, and other gas-inducing stuff. Rowley created UX3, which is a powder that contains digestive enzymes and is made with Stevia, as opposed to an artificial sweetener, making it even easier on the stomach. You may be interested in a plant-based option instead of a whey one, as they're typically sans dairy, making your chances of getting bad gas lessen.
