::MARK VAN AKKEREN
"I'm highly analytical. I like to know how and why something works. What makes it tick. As a professional athlete, I'm always in pursuit of that which will give me an edge. I don't like to read superlatives, I like to read science. With Generation UCAN I've now got a nutritional tool that isn't just some fancy named, re-marketed sugar. Instead it's something entirely new. A game changer for pre-workout and race nutrition. You can load up your high powered energy stores for your next workout without ruining your blood glucose or insulin baseline. No surge, no crash, no stomach problems and quite light on the tummy."
