Product Overview

AS SERIOUS AS IT GETS

GAIN UP TO 8 LBS. MUSCLE MASS

WORLD'S #1 SELLING BEEF PROTEIN ISOLATE

BEEF-UP WITH CARNIVOR!

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 most 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 a highly anabolic muscle building protein. CARNIVOR is unlike any other protein supplement in existence. CARNIVOR was the first beef protein on the market and continues to be the #1 selling Beef Protein Isolate on the planet!

The Muscle Building Power of CARNIVOR – Backed By Research+

New research substantiates what you knew all along… Beef builds muscle and strength! A groundbreaking clinical study presented at the 2015 International Society of Sport Nutrition (ISSN) conference in Austin, Texas showed that hard training athletes supplementing with CARNIVOR Beef Protein Isolate (BPI) gained an average of 7.7 lbs. of muscle mass, while also increasing strength. Researchers gave test subjects CARNIVOR Beef Protein Isolate daily for 8 weeks while exercising 5 days weekly. Athletes taking CARNIVOR BPI experienced an impressive 6.4% averageincrease in lean body mass. In contrast, the placebo groupdid not significantly improvetheir body mass from baseline.

The study also showed that CARNIVOR BPI supplement-ation significantly increased deadlift and bench press strength over baseline. Test subjects increased their average bench press 1-rep max by over 45 lbs., while increasing their deadlift strength by over 90 lbs – a 20% increase in total body strength. These impressive clinical findings clearly validate the muscle and strength building power of CARNIVOR Beef Protein Isolate.

The World’s #1 Selling Pure Beef Protein 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 greater amino acid levels than other protein sources used in supplements, including whey, soy, milk and egg. CARNIVOR Beef Protein Isolate (BPI) is even 350% more concentrated in anabolic muscle building aminos than a prime sirloin steak! And it contains no fat or cholesterol!

Anabolic Nitrogen Retention Technology™ (ANRT) Recycles Aminos and Minimizes Ammonia

ANRT is a major muscle building breakthrough in protein supplementation. While protein is critical for muscle growth, it 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 toxins such as ammonia. ANRT nitrogen retention factors contained in CARNIVOR include GKG (glutamine-alpha-ketoglutarate), OKG (ornithine-alpha-ketoglutarate), AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) and KIC (alpha-ketoisocaproate).

20 Times the Creatine Content of Steak

One of the benefits 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 help saturate your muscles for explosive strength and growth.

Added BCAAs for Increased Anabolic and Anti-Catabolic Effects

To further boost the anabolic muscle building action of CARNIVOR, additional Branched 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.

Beef Builds Muscle!

Throughout history, the ravenous appetite that “men of muscle” have for top quality beef has become as legendary as their superhuman feats. Now, in modern times this muscle building nutrition tradition carries on in the bodybuilding world with CARNIVOR – the only Beef Protein Isolate that’s research tested to help you build muscle mass and strength!

SCIENCE:

BEEF PROTEIN ISOLATE PROJECT OVERVIEW.

MuscleMeds reveals the exciting behind-the-scene developments of their revolutionary scientific breakthroughs in Protein Supplement technology, which led to the invention of the world’s first pharmaceutical grade beef protein isolate supplement – CARNIVOR. It all started when the MuscleMeds Research Team embarked on their ambitious research project to develop the most concentrated beef protein isolate supplement ever created. Scientists have established that when designing protein products, a major objective is to take high protein content foods and apply advanced processing technologies to improve the bioavailability and functionality of the constituent proteins. Similar processing technologies have been used for soy, milk, egg and whey. However, even in light of these marvelous landmark developments, at best whey protein isolates used in protein sports nutrition products achieve only a 90% level of purity.

As a result of the monumental MuscleMeds beef protein isolate project, new technological breakthroughs were developed that enabled MuscleMeds to harness the awesome muscle building power of beef in a 99% pure pharmaceutical grade protein supplement. This proprietary 6-step process is explained in detail below.

HYDROLYZED FOR FAST ABSORPTION

CARNIVOR is made with pure Beef Protein Isolate (BPI) that is derived from an advanced hydrolysis process. This process is intricately designed to yield a delicious, easy-to-digest and highly bioavailable concentrated pure Beef Protein Isolate, while removing all the fat and cholesterol. An advanced team of MuscleMeds experts employs a highly controlled proprietary 6-stage process in the production of pure BPI found exclusively in delicious CARNIVOR.

This 6-stage process includes the following steps:

  1. Particle Reduction Cycle: The first step is to selectively obtain all the “good stuff” (protein, amino acids) from the beef while leaving the “bad stuff” (fat, cholesterol)behind. This is done through a delicate Particle Reduction Cycle, which improves theprotein extraction.
  2. Thermal Hydrolysis: Next, the beef goes through Thermal Hydrolysis to obtain the desired “pre-digested” hydrolyzed beef protein isolate (BPI).
  3. Cold Filtration Process: The BPI then goes through another cold filtration process to remove anything else except the pure protein we are looking for.
  4. Low Temperature Evaporation: This process maintains the integrity of the protein and amino acids, while removing excess moisture and achieving an “instant powder” that you can mix with anything.
  5. Spray Drying: This is a key process often overlooked. This is also done at a low temperature to maintain as much of the “natural” components of the beef as possible and to improve the digestibility of the powder.
  6. Test Process: Finally, the BPI goes through a rigorous testing process and is USDA approved to ensure it’s the highest purity and quality.

Whey protein and dairy tend to make me break out, so I stumbled upon this terrific protein. The idea is interesting and so I wanted to test it. The chocolate flavor is great, as for the rest I am unsure. I've taken a few different Whey proteins and I feel this is better because I do not become bloated after and it gets the job done with 23g of protein. Give it a shot while it's buy one get one half off, you won't regret it. Easily my favorite, I look forward to drinking it every time.

Please do not buy this. I have taken protein powders for about 15 years and this is the first time I have ever had to throw a product out. The taste is just horrendous. I can usually choke a drink down but this was simply unbearable and made me gag. The best way I can describe it is that it tastes like beef broth that is lightly flavoured with fruit punch (I can't speak to the taste of the other flavours but it looks like they are just as poor). The benefits of a product (like those marketed in Carnivor) mean absolutely nothing if you can't consume it. Steer clear my friends...

I strive to incorporate a range of protein sources into my diet and liked the option of having a beef-based protein supplement when time constraints didn't allow for cooking steak. I made the mistake of buying the strawberry flavor...do not buy it...very artificial tasting with bad aftertaste. Go for the chocolate or chocolate peanut butter!

My go-to protein. Excellent Stuff. Chocolate Peanut Butter is the icing on the cake to the standard chocolate flavor. It seems like chocolate just lacks something. The peanut butter aspect adds another dimension to it and makes it more fulfilling.

I was one of those protein consumers that was adamant about having a protein rated solely on its ability to help the athlete attain results. The taste of a protein, I believed, shouldn't be considered in the products rating because one didn't take protein because it tasted good, but because we want results. That used to be my opinion, until I tried the Vanilla Caramel flavored Carnivor. In order for the protein to work, it needs to be consumed; taking this protein is an exacting event all in itself! It tastes that bad! If you're going to purchase this product, get the Chocolate! Hands down, its their best flavor and the protein actually works; I gained 10lbs of muscle in two months, and that's difficult for me to do because of my crazy fast metabolism. The protein works, but the flavor doesn't. It pains me to say that I just threw away $50 by purchasing the Vanilla Caramel flavor. Stick to the Chocolate!

Great protein powder. It's nice to mix up what kind of protein you take in once in a while, and this meat based protein is everything you could ever want. I mix this with frozen yogurt and some milk to make a protein milk shake. I have to say, trying to mix this protein with the recommended water in a shaker bottle is a hassle. It doesn't mix well at all and you're left with powdery chunks. Recommend using this protein in a blender to just get all those chunks out. Besides the problem mixing, it's a great protein powder to work into your diet.
