    Anyone have digestion problems with PES Select protein?


    So I started consuming PES Select Protein a couple of weeks ago. Ever since, I get cramps an hour or two later, kinda gassy, and I find myself rushing to the bathroom, and in order to spare the details, I'll just say it isn't pretty. Or fun. And this happens more than once/day after only 1 shake. I've never had a problem with protein powders. I normally make my own custom mixes on True Nutrition or whatever it's called these days, but have used all of the usuals: ON, Dymatize, Syntha6, Isopure etc. I've never experienced anything like this before. I've tried all three flavors so far, same results. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

    I bought some Digestive Enzymes to try. Hoping it'll help.

    Seems most are having less digestive issues with Select than other brands due to the low lactose content.

    Have you used blends with a 50% or higher amount of casein before? Some people have issues with that and it would be noticed a few hours later if you are.

    My wife did. I did not. I think it's the best tasting protein I've had.

    Without a doubt some of the best tasting I've ever had. But, IF the protein really is the cause of these issues, I can do without it haha.

    I don't recall if I've made a mix with at least 50% casein. It certainly isn't a usual for me anyway. I remember I purchased ON's casein several years ago and don't recall having a problem with it.

    I recently had issues like this and I kept trying to work out what supplement was causing it.

    Turns out it was something that a lot of people had lol.

    I would cease taking it for a few days to be sure though. As others have said, the instance of GI upset with Select should be very low.

    Keep us updated.
