Beef-up with Carnivor : The world's first beef protein Isolate'
It has long been know that bodybuilders and strength athletes consume high amounts of beef to help building muscle and increase strength. The muscle building power of beef cannot be disputed. Ask any bodybuilder and they will tell you that they make their biggest muscle gains and feel their strongest when they eat beef. Now, thanks to the development of an advanced bioengineered beef protein, MuscleMeds has formulated the most sought after muscle building protein ever created. Carnivor is unlike any Other Protein in existence.

The world's first all beef protein isolate is more concentrated than whey:
Using new advanced extraction, clarification, hydrolysis and isolation technologies Carnivor's Beef Protein Isolate delivers the muscle building power of beef with higher amino acid levels than all other protein sources used in supplements including: whey, soy, milk and egg. Carnivor Beef Protein Isolate is even 350% more concentrated in anabolic muscle building aminos than a prime sirloin steak!

Anabolic Nitrogen Retention Technology (ANRT) Recycles Aminos and Minimized Ammonia:
Anabolic Nitrogen Retention Technology (ANRT) Recycles Aminos and Minimized Ammonia:
ANRT is a major muscle building breakthrough in protein supplementation. While protein is critical for muscle growth, protein can sometimes actually decrease performance and muscle growth if nitrogenous waste products like ammonia are not recycled back towards the muscle building pathway and prevent the build-up of debilitating toxic scavengers such as ammonia. ANRT nitrogen retention factors contained in CARNIVOR include: GKG (Glutamine-alpha-ketoglutarate), OKG (Ornithin-alpha-ketoglutarate), AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) and KIC (alpha-ketoisocaproate).

20 times the Creatine content of Steak:
One of the attributes of eating beef is its naturally high creatine content. Beef is one of the best natural sources of creatine. To push the anabolic activation and cell volumizing effects of creatine even greater, each serving of Carnivor supplies 30 times more creatine than whole beef food sources to ssaturate your muscles for explosive strength and growth.

Added BCAA for increased Anabolic and Anti-Catabolic Effects:
To further boost the anabolic muscle building action of Carnivor, addition Branch Chain Amino Acids are added to the purified Beef Protein Isolate. The enhanced BCAA levels promote a positive nitrogen balance, increase protein synthesis, decrease catabolism, improve workout performance and reduce muscle fatigue.

Throughout history, the ravenous appetite that 'men of muscle' have for top quality beef has become as legendary as their super-human feats. Ancient warriors, Greek Olympic athletes, strongmen like Sandow and even Roman gladiators craved and consumed pounds of beef per day to build muscle to boost their combat prowess. Now, in modern times this muscle building nutrition carries on in the bodybuilding world with Carnivor!

great protein
I have used BSN Isolated 6 ,Myoein XPI, Muscle Milk and GNC AMPFLIED but this is by far the best protein I have had. I workout twice a day six days out of the week and this is the best post work out protein I have had. The recovery time is amazing! I am not as sore as usual and after consuming it for a month I saw results. I am able to lift heavier with more reps. The only negative about this product is that it is difficult to mix and doesnt have the best taste ,but it works!!

Great product
I would use this product after my workouts and I could notice a change in my body, getting cut and in shape in no time. The chocolate flavor is probly the best, tastes great and is easy to mix. Pricing is probly the worst thing, could be a little cheaper but oh well.

Carnivor is the bomb.
Carnivor is by far the best protein supplement I have ever taken. Before buying this product I was a bit skeptical about using carnivor as a post workout supp, mainly because of the beef that was in it. From my point of view I thought it would taste awful and I would get fat. I did my research and found this product to be working wonders. It has no fats, no cholesterol, and no sugars. A loud of bodybuilders and competition weight lifters take this product. I Box competitively and I hit the gym quite often which is the main reason why I take this product. I have noticed my recovery times after an intense workout in the gym has shortened by 1-2days. It sure makes a difference since I am really active. It really helps me when I hit the ring as well. I notice in Boxing practice I have less or no pain while at practice. I guess the beef in the protein gave me that extra edge to recover and fuel my muscles. I also noticed my reps and weights in the gym and in cross-fit increased by about 20lbs. As for the taste I have heard that this product is the worst tasting which is a lie. I don't know where that lie came from but to tell you the truth Carnivor is the best tasting protein powder that I have ever taken. Take my word for it because I tried everything in GNC. I love the chocolate flavor. With water the chocolate flavor is very strong. It does foam up a lot but it doesnt bother me. I would highly recommend this product for every athlete including those who just hit the gym. Its a fine quality protein. SERIOUSLY!!! I am 21 years young in college and is UUBER active and I LOVE MY CHOCOLATE CARNIVOR. Carnivor is a keeper.

I see on the label that MuscleMeds Carnivor has added BCAA's. However, unlike most protein supplements, they fail to catalog the amounts of each BCAA in the supplement. Where do I go to find this information? Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 22, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No manufacturer would give the exact amount of any ingredient in their product, otherwise it would make it too easy for competitors to replicate it. However, you can see the breakdown of ingredients and percentages under product specs and nutrition facts label.
