I seen this beef protein isolate when I was checking out protein powders today. They seem to claim it's a better protein than whey. I was wondering if anyone has tried it and how they liked it, is it worth the cash?
The bottle also claims it has 20x the creatine content of a steak, but the ingredients doesn't list an amount of creatine. Anyone know how many grams of creatine a serving has, and would it be fine to take this protein as well as creatine monohydrate at the same time?

MuscleMeds Carnivor Beef Protein vs Whey

Here's the writeup on it:
"BEEF-UP WITH CARNIVOR ³THE WORLD¹S FIRST BEEF PROTEIN ISOLATE² It has long been known that bodybuilders and strength athletes consume high amounts of beef to help build 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 World¹s First All Beef Protein Isolate is More Concentrated Than Whey:
Using new advanced extraction, clarification, hydrolysis and isolation technologies CARNIVOR¹s 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 Minimizes
ANRT is a major muscle building breakthrough in protein supplementation.
While protein is critical for muscle growth, paradoxically, protein can sometimes actually decrease performance and muscle growth if nitrogenous waste products like ammonia are not recycled back into anabolic tissue building pathways or otherwise neutralized. ANRT is specially designed to allow the recycling of aminos back toward 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
ketoglutarate), OKG (Ornithine-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 20 times more creatine than whole beef food sources to saturate 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, additional 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.
Through history, the ravenous appetite that ³men of muscle² 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 tradition carries on in the bodybuilding world with CARNIVOR! "
