Better protein utilization can not only help with muscles but also decreases gas, bloating, cramping, stomach pain, etc.-digestive enzymes, gut health

Not only can better utilization of protein increase muscle growth and repair muscles faster, but it can also decrease digestive discomforts such as gas, bloating, cramping, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and stomach pain. Further, high protein diets can cause smelly gas💨. ⁠
Everyone should be motivated for many reasons to help protein break down better.⁠
Herbs such as ginger, artichoke leaf extract, and Gutgard® licorice flavonoids along with proteolytic enzymes (i.e., protease and peptidase) can also help reduce smelly gas and bloating to relieve some of the discomforts associated with a high protein diet.⁠
Protease and peptidase can break down dietary⁠
proteins into amino acids, which are readily absorbed in the small intestine (better protein utilization).⁠
This reduces the amount of large, undigested proteins ending up in the colon. Protease and peptidase can⁠
therefore reduce proteolytic fermentation and may help alleviate smelly gas caused by skatole, cadaverine and putrescine.⁠
Key probiotic supplementation will not only help improve protein digestion but is shown to crowd out unwanted gut microbes that produce smelly gas.⁠
