the pro compex is arguably the best straight protein supplement on the market. Has the best protein to serving size ratio and the highest amino acid profile out of just about anything. If you want the best your gonna have to spend the money but then again thats how it always is. Look for good deals at diff supp shops..you can often find close dated pro complex for cheap at vit shoppe and mall location GNC's during the 1st week of the month or the end of the month. Just a tip.
