Unfortunately we’re unable to do Ragnar Cape Cod this year but we still have an entry. If anybody is interested in… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…
The Endurance Pack is designed by endurance coach and sports nutritionist Ben Greenfield for optimizing workouts, events and races of 2+ hours while keeping the body in maximum fat burning mode and reducing intake of high sugar and high caffeine compounds. The Pack contains all our recommended endurance supplements: 60 packets UCAN Superstarch, 30 packets Energy28, one 120 tablet bottle MAP, and an option to add-on a 12 pack of VESPA ultra-concentrate wasp extract – enough for up to several months of training and racing.

UCAN Superstarch is for anyone who wants unflavored, 100% pure fuel – in a non-GMO, slow release form for that allows you to use far less carbohydrate and burn significantly more of your own fat as a fuel. SuperStarch causes a very low release of insulin and results in an extremely stable blood sugar profile compared to sugary gels, sports drinks, powders or energy bars.
Generation UCAN will put your body in the ideal performance state and make you more metabolically efficient, thus allowing you to burn more fat as a fuel. To listen to an excellent interview about how to practically use this, and why burning more fats during exercise is good, listen to this interview.

For a less “sciency” explanation, read this article that appears in Feb 2012 Men’s Health magazine.
On the checkout page for your Endurance Pack, you’ll get to choose between Plain or Cranberry Raspberry (both with zero artificial sweeteners). Simply drink 1-2 servings 30-45 minutes before a workout with 8-12 ounces of cold water, and consume 1-2 servings per hour during long workouts, mixed with 1 serving Energy28 and 5-10 MAP tablets.
Energy begins with a balanced diet, with the body assimilating life-giving nutrients from the soil, processed into edible forms by plants. Because our diets are generally lacking in high-quality nutrients, we often turn to sugar and caffeine for quick energy at the expense of the health and sustained energy we could obtain from true nutrients.
When the body is well nourished, a person is less likely to be depressed and more likely to have adequate energy levels. Energy28 was created to deliver supplemental natural energy from whole-food and natural sources.
Energy28 is a liquid superfood that contains chlorella, D-Ribose, rhodiola, Peruvian maca root and 24 organic fruits and vegetables.
The result is that you don’t actually need the caffeine that is typically added to sports drinks and energy gels, and you instead keep your body in a focused but extremely well stabilized state after using the Energy28 – without any long nights with difficulty falling asleep or caffeine jitters after or during your workout or race.
Many people know that protein is essential for optimum health, but most assume they are consuming enough from food. So why the need for an amino acid supplement?
The answer is to build quality protein. Yes, you do get good quality from foods such as eggs, meat, fish and nuts but much of the protein in food is not converted into body protein – it just makes waste that the body has to get rid of plus extra calories. Plus, it’s very difficult to eat those type of protein sources during a workout or race.
Almost everyone is protein deficient without realizing it – it plays out as a nagging injury that won’t heal in the athlete, or brittle bones in the menopausal women, or constant colds in the child. Protein deficiency is very often something you are aware of, but you just can’t identify and neither does your doctor. Not getting enough protein may mean low hormones, or a low immune system and risk of disease or cancer.
So what’s the solution? Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) – an amino acid supplement that is 99% utilized by the body to make protein. No other form of protein comes close!
What’s the difference between this and other proteins?
– At the low end of the spectrum are whey and soy proteins – only 17% of their content is utilized by the body with 83% leaving as waste.
– Food like meat, fish and poultry fare a bit better with 32% being absorbed and 68% being wasted.
– Eggs are the winners in the food stakes with 48% being utilized with 52% waste.
– Now compare those numbers to MAP – a massive 99% is put to work by the body, with only 1% leaving as waste. Not only that, but MAP is absorbed by the body within 23 minutes! And there is only 0.4 of a calorie per tablet.
We can truly say that no other protein source compares with MAP, and when you use it during your workout, especially when combined with UCAN Superstarch and Energy28, you experience unparalleled increases in performance, focus, time to fatigue, and decreases in post-workout soreness.

VESPA’s key ingredient is an all-natural amino acid complex (in a naturally occurring peptide) derived from the Asian Mandarin Wasp and works by shifting the muscles to metabolize a higher level of fat during physical activity thus stabilizing and conserving glycogen.
VESPA Ultra-Concentrate is a “must have” for the serious endurance athlete or as an ultra-compact energy source for backcountry hikers and runners where space and weight are at a premium. Extensively field tested over the past 3 years, each pouch of VESPA ULTRA-CONCENTRATE packs a potent 175mg of the naturally-occurring, bio-active VESPA peptide in an ultra-compact package measuring 9cm x 4cm and weighing under 11 grams!
This is the strongest version VESPA in a super portable, light weight package that can be diluted with water and mixed with the other components of the Endurance Pack. It contains:
