Genus protein is the newest protein on the market. It is a complete protein that is even higher in protein content than whey concentrate yet costs about the same. Genus protein is derived from a special yellow pea, and refined to concentrate the protein content to greater than 85%. Pea protein has very high branch chain amino acids and glutamine which are necessary for optimal recovery. It is very low in fat and carbohydrates yet remains high in all of the amino acids. This is the best protein source for the bodybuilder looking to supplement their protein intake without extra carbs and fat (one serving has less than 1g of carbohydrate and less than 1g of fat) and also wishes to stay vegan. This protein combined with the fact that animal proteins are very bad for the environment (according to peta, causing more pollution than the automobile) makes Genus protein the most amazing protein source in the past 10 years. This new protein source should take the industry by storm once people get their hands on it. Genus has one other unique characteristic, it contains fat burning polyphenols that are similar to the anti-oxidant polyphenols in green tea. This makes Genus protein the best source of protein for someone looking to build muscle while burning fat. Genus is an up and coming protein; look for it in many newer formulations.
