I was just wondering if you had any opinion on Carnivor Protein. It states that it's more bioavailable, and already has creatine, so I was wondering if you think it is a good supplement to take.

Here's my opinion of Carnivor beef protein, it seems to be a good alternative for people that are lactose intolerant and can't use milk based protein. It is low in fat and carbs, they also add BCAAs and creatine. So, overall it looks like a good protein supplement.
Some negatives about it are that is contains aspartame, some people don't like the taste and some also say it doesn't mix easily.
As far as it being more bioavailable, take a look at the protein bioavailability chart below.
Protein Source Bio-Availability Index Whey Protein Isolate Blends 100-159 Whey Concentrate 104 Whole Egg 100 Cow's Milk 91 Egg White 88 Fish 83 Beef 80 Chicken 79 Casein 77 Rice 74 Soy 59 Wheat 54 Beans 49 Peanuts 43
As you can see beef protein is about half way down the list at only 80% bioavailability, while whey, eggs and milk proteins have the highest levels of bioavailability.
Like I said if you are lactose intolerant or just want a change, Carnivor Protein might be good to try.
But if you can digest milk, our Bio-Engineered Protein Advanced Formula contains whey, egg and milk proteins because of the fact that they are the highest protein sources, We also add BCAA's (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine & L-Valine) and L-Glutamine. And we do not add any aspartame.
