    I recently got this to add to my protein shakes in addition to the ON whey/casein blend i already put in there. It is complete (has all 20 amino acids, including the essentials) and runs about $17 for a 15-serving bottle, although thats from whole foods, which is expensive. it also contains a lot of chlorophyll, zinc, and magnesium.

    Nutrition Facts (per 30g serving):
    Total Fats: 3g (Omega 3's and 6's)
    Total Carb: 14g (12.6g soluble fiber, 1.4g insoluble fiber, 0 net carbs)
    Protein: 11g
    Calcium: 4% DV
    Iron: 8% DV
    Vitamin E: 6% DV
    Magnesium: 48% DV
    Zinc: 22% DV

    from wiki:
    seems like a good source of protein, lots of fiber, and clean fats that is probably worth checking out, esp if your cutting

    it has no thc

    chlorophyll is a pigment that contains a lot of Mg, among other things. some people think it has health benefits (most natural pigments do).

    My gf's sister's boyfriend uses that... actually has some in the fridge right now. Never tried it myself...

    My gf had me try the chlorophyll too. Put it my bottle water. One time at the airport, security questioned me about it (the green water)and made me drink it in front of them.
