::JEFF VOLEK


Cathy Yeckel - UCAN energy drink

"Simple-sugar based sports drinks have dominated the nutritional landscape for decades with little in the way of innovation. SuperStarch represents a major advancement and is legitimately the most exciting development in sports nutrition this century. An athlete using Generation UCAN's dual-fuel power is like a hybrid car that can run on gas (carbs), but is more efficient, can last longer and perform better by running on alternative fuel (fat). Generation UCAN with SuperStarch is a completely different, healthier carbohydrate. From its fascinating origins, to its growing number of current supporters, to its potential to radically alter how we view carbohydrate nutrition in the future - I'm having a thrilling time watching it all unfold and being a part of the solution. UCAN too."
