North Carolina company whose products fuel standup paddling (SUP) world champions Connor Baxter and Travis Grant will unveil a new variety of its top selling protein superfood nutritional shake at leading health conference as it prepares to supply Whole Foods.
In 2008, Scott Kanyok was struck by a box truck on his road bicycle and suffered life threatening injuries. After a long spell in intensive care with a fractured skull and several surgeries to put in titanium plates and screws, he kept getting respiratory infections as his immune system struggled to recover. Superfoods like acerola cherry, camu camu and maqui berry put Kanyok on a path back to health and led to him starting UB Real to bring such antioxidant-rich ingredients to everyone in the form of the UB Super protein superfood nutritional shakes. Six years on, UB Real will introduce a new, non-GMO grass fed whey protein version at Natural Products Expo East 2014 Booth 8716, as the company prepares to supply Whole Foods in October.
Each serving of UB Super provides 10 nutritious superfoods, 15g non-GMO grass fed whey and plant based proteins, a complete amino acid profile, 100% daily intake of 9 essential vitamins, antioxidants, fulvic minerals, prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes. The same combination of health-promoting ingredients are also available with plant-sourced vegan-friendly protein instead of grass-fed whey, making UB Super the perfect choice for anyone who needs super fast real food. And as UB Real sources the highest quality superfoods from sustainable sources and pays fair prices to small scale indigenous suppliers as part of the company’s Good Loop Promise, UB Super is better for people and the planet.
“Fast food is associated with high fat content and artificial ingredients but it doesn’t have to be that way with a convenient meal replacement option like UB Super,” said UB Real founder Scott Kanyok. “People can now get antioxidants, fulvic minerals, organic vitamins and other nutrients on the go in their healthiest meal of the day, whether they prefer a non-GMO whey or vegan plant-based protein shake.”
In addition to being a healthy protein meal replacement diet shake for people looking to get back in shape, UB Super is the perfect pre- and post-workout nutrition choice for athletes. This includes standup paddling (SUP) world champions Connor Baxter and Travis Grant, who finished first and second at the 2014 Molokai2Oahu (M20) SUP World Championships and elite runners such as Tom Clifford, winner of the 2014 SeaWheeze Lululemon Half Marathon.
“UB Super is the perfect meal replacement when I’m traveling for a race because it enables me to quickly get the protein, vitamins and electrolytes my body needs to perform,” Grant said. “I drink a UB Shake before, during and after races and it helps me recover for the next event.”
