We all probably remember our first encounter with Whey Protein… I remember feeling like such a beast gulping down my first powdery shake feeling more and more swole with every drink.
For most people, protein is the first supplement they take and probably one of the most widely accepted supplements for building muscle, size, or strength. Personally, I feel like I wasted a workout if I don't get some protein in quickly after.
But, like most people… because protein can be so hard to digest, consistently drinking whey started causing me some annoying side effects.
Most side effects from whey are related to digestion and can include:
- Stomach cramps
Many people give up on whey protein because of these side effects… or maybe they go looking for a plant based protein just to end up with similar side effects or horrible taste.
IS WHEY WORTH IT?
Well here are some of the benefits...
- Promotes Muscle Growth
- Improves recovery
- Reduces Hunger
- Protein Can Help Reduce Fat
- May Lower Blood Pressure
The benefits are pretty widely known but how can we get them without all the bloating and gas??
In 2008 The Journal of The International Society of Sports Nutrition came out with a study determining the effects of using digestive enzymes with whey consumption. The researchers gave one group 50g of whey protein by itself, and the other group 50g of whey protein along with plant based enzymes.
At the 4 hr mark, the group with enzymes had almost double the amount of Amino Acids in the system. Not only did it increase the absorption of protein but the enzyme taking group also didn't have the bloating, gas, or other negative side effects.
SECRET WEAPON AGAINST BLOATING
At Gains In Bulk we have always delivered high quality plant enzymes but in 2017 when we released our first protein powder, Gains 100, we took this study a step further and actually Pre-Digested the protein ourselves. WTF does that mean?
No we don't have people eat it for you! Basically, we blend the formula with all the plant-based, digestive enzymes necessary to break down all the protein and then dehydrate it back down into the powder you receive…
This increases absorption by up to 300%, eliminates the bloating, gas, and work the body normally has to do in order to digest the protein.
One other benefit we didn't see coming was how smooth and delicious it made the protein… It basically eliminated that weird, “Whey flavor” that lurks behind the flavoring of most protein powders.
FINALLY, A PROTEIN THAT GIVES YOU ALL THE BENEFITS WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECTS...
Drinking regular whey is kinda like throwing away ⅔ of your protein everytime you drink a scoop… with our Pre-digested formula you will get maximum absorption without any of the gassy bloat.
We have added a couple new proteins since 2017 but every one of them is pre-digested (even our plant protein)...

I've tried so many different proteins and this is the ONLY one that doesn't give me that bloated feeling all day. I've been a recurring customer for a long time now and I plan to do for as long as this product exists.
Easy and so delicious as a meal replacement or post workout boost! My girls run out the door to school every morning with a Gains-100 shake. I drink 1-2 shakes a day to increase my protein intake for muscle growth and recovery. I love, love, love, the taste of both chocolate and vanilla flavors and I really appreciate the natural ingredients, mo friendly calories, and easy digestibility!
It seems all protein powders have this weird twang taste but not this one! I make it into “ice cream” with ice, banana and almond milk. Literally tastes like a chocolate malt milkshake. NO WEIRD PROTEIN TASTE! Converted 5 friends who agree! You won’t be disappointed! No bloat either.
One of the best Protein i have ever had, mixes so well and the taste is amazing!!!
