Whenever I have my protein shake I get really bad gas. I have had Next Designer protein and Nitro-Tech protein and with both had gas problems.

Look for a protein brand that is an "isloate" instead of a "concentrate"

I'm pretty sure both you just mentioned are the latter.

Also, you could be lactose intolerant to a degree so look for one that has no lactose. That could be it as well.

Ginger is great for helping with digestion of protein powder. It was a miracle when I was consuming a lot of protein powder. Now I get all my protein for food, but that's just me.

You can get powdered ginger in pills or just man it up and eat fresh ginger raw. Raw ginger was my preference, but pills do have the edge in convience.

Are you mixing it with milk or water? Some people find mixing with water helps eliminate the gas problem for them (me included).
