Default Nitro Tech Hardcore problem

Hi guys.. im new, i'm from argentina and have been training for only a year. (discontinued [im skinny])..
well.. i started taking Nitro tech hardcore 2 weeks ago.. and suddenly, my stomach mechanism started to change.. no problem to say it.. i wasn't having any kind of stomach problem, but now im fighting with gastritis and once a week i have to rush into the bathroom. is not that bad, but started happening since i started taking this prodect.
Well.. im not sure if this protein might be the problem, but you might..
Thank you

I don't think the protein is the problem although it could be. Are you allergic to milk? Nitrotech is very, very overpriced. It is not a great protein either. Optimum Nutrition makes a better protein for much less money.

It is possible, especially if this is the only change with your diet/supplementation. Did you change your diet at all once you started taking the Nitrotech? Have you tried any other protein powders? The reason I ask is if you have and did not have side effects it may be worth it to change back.

Nitrotech is way expensive for protein and you can get much better deals elsewhere IMO. Double check your diet and if that is not the problem it just might be the Nitrotech.

A few months ago i was using "mega whey" protein. I didn't have any kind of problem. But many people told me that Nitro was THE BEST. So that's why i changed. If the stomachaches are because of Nitro tech, my question would be.. Am i going to get used to it and have no problems at all after a few months? if this is a matter of getting used to, i could do it.. my problem is if im going to keep having this problem for a long time..

Haha NitroTech is not the best. The #1 ingredient is whey protein concentrate. Compared to...ON Gold Standard...#1 ingredient is whey isolate. That should tell you a lot. Isolate is a more pure form. MuscleTech is guilty of label decorating. They put 10,000 different things in their products, but the amounts are negligible. People look at the labels and see the ingredients and think it is a great product......

Take it back to GNC (that's where I assume you bought it) and get some of the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard protein....if you have a receipt. The ON protein is $19.99 for a 2lb tub. It's actually a good price...the only thing at GNC that is decently priced right now. There aren't as many ingredients in it, so I don't think you'll have a problem. It's a better protein too IMO.

That and Muscletech has a habit of producing "Proprietary Blends" which are made up of gazillion different ingredients and the bulk of the blend is the cheapest shit. My advice is finish up with the Nitro, switch to Optimum and use some BCAA's.

Yeah, I agree with everyone. Theres no use in "getting used to it". Just use a good standard mix. Or a more pure isolate if you want to spend the extra money. ON is good like the others said and there are plenty of other good ones.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Thanks
