whey protein shakes giving me WICKED stomach cramps all of a sudden
    #15907583 - 03/06/12 06:40 AM (2 years, 7 months ago)

not sure why.... I don't think it's lactose intolerance, as I usually drink like at least a half gallon of milk a day, eat lots of cheese and it's never been an issue, ever.

I almost always take it with water...

I drink it slow...

I usually only use half a serving size...

2 days ago it didn't happen... in fact I actually slammed one back in about a 15 minute time frame, with milk, hung over, with no issues at all (2 scoops, 35 grams protein)

but earlier today, 1 scoop added to roughly 15 ozs water sipped over the course of an hour gave some of the worst stomach cramps I've ever had... just made another one after work to see if it would have the same effects, and sure enough I'm a quarter of the way through a 15 oz glass and my stomach is killing me...

wtf is up with that??... is this normal?... I've never had a problem during years of daily use :shrug:

What kind of protein powder are you drinking?  What brand?

Thats also what I was thinking.


I would avoid that body building promo protein. It has so much crap in it including creatine.

Creatine is known to cause cramps and stomach issues.

Try pureprotein. They sell it at walmart and it doesnt have any creatine.

If you are looking for a more micronized protein without creatine then GNC is your best bet. The more micronized the powder the more effective and costly it will be.

If you are coming off creatine you should prepare for it in your workout routine. You will notice loss of strength and power so be prepared, have spotters, and maybe even back down a little. Creatine takes 4-5 weeks to leave your system totally.

I switched protein powders a couple years ago to this cheap brand and I started getting cramps and diarrhea.

I thought I was becoming lactose intolerant, but I switched brands to "Gold Standard 100% Whey" and haven't switched brands since.

A study came out a year or two ago showing that some of the more popular ones had high levels of arsenic and other nastiness in them.  I would avoid the ones with artificial sweeteners as well (that includes most of them).

This is the one that I would recommend.

Exactly.  I'm pretty sure that artificial sweeteners give people gastrointestinal distress.

Ya that's the exact brand I use, except that mine doesn't say Natural.  Same brand though and everything.  It is the best.



Arsenic though?  haha god damn.  I know they can get away with not putting individual ingredients in them by saying Proprietary Blend though.

But why would a company put shit like that in their products?  I don't get it.

Muscle milk was the biggest offender.  Link to a synopsis from the CR article

I'm in a rush, but I'm using 'exact' brand... it has dextrose and sucralose...

I've been using this brand and flavor for about a month, no issues until yesterday

I am taking creatine, have been for around a year, it's never caused any GI issues though... and I don't take it with the whey

gotta run though, I'll check back in after work... I'm gonna try drinking this shit one more time, if it gives me cramps like that again, I'm tossing it :tongue:
