About the company

We’re Alexia and Darian, the creators of Vuka. We grew up in South Africa, and so the name Vuka – “wake up” in Zulu. We’re parents to three amazing kids, we run our business, and we love to surf and dance and run and fly planes and cook and write books and make music and travel and enjoy every little bit of life that we can! We’re big believers in the concept of harnessing human potential and we love that everyone has a spark of that inside. But we realized that sometimes we need a little boost to awaken that spark.

We wanted to create a drink that can help you “wake up” to what’s inside of you. And because we believe in choosing healthier options, inside VUKA you’ll find natural ingredients, no preservatives and no chemicals, along with a handful of vitamins and nutrients to help you achieve your goals. We hope that these delicious drinks give you the energy to get what you want out of life.

About the company

KonaRed® is uniquely sourced from Hawaii Coffee, where it has developed for over 175 years. Kona’s coffee growing region is only about fifty square miles in all, and is farmed largely by small landowners. In order for coffee plants to thrive, the region in which they grow must meet six climate elements: rich soil, proper elevation, sunshine, cloud cover, rain and a moderate slope for proper drainage of roots. Like much of Hawaii, Kona offers all six of these ideal climate conditions for growing coffee, allowing for the creation of award-winning coffees and the antioxidant powers of KonaRed®.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Endurance Tap – Natural Energy

 

 

Endurance Tap is an easy to digest, tasty, high-performance energy gel. And we need your help.

 

What's This All About?

As endurance athletes, we invest A LOT OF TIME into training and racing, so we take our nutrition very seriously to maximize our performance.

Then why are many of us taking gels filled with ingredients we can’t pronounce? Did you know that maltodextrin (the main ingredient in most gels) is a low-cost food additive typically found in pop, candy and chips? Is that going to help us perform our best? And, what does that do to our overall health?

Also, many people suffer from stomach distress when taking these gels. They're processed junk food and they're really thick, so they sit like a blob in our stomachs. This compromises our performance, and can also put a damper on the fun.

This is why we’ve created Endurance Tap. We are endurance athletes and we wanted to bring a better fuel to the endurance sports community. And we need your help to do it.

Why Maple Syrup?
It’s a superfood, filled with the energy, minerals and antioxidants athletes need to perform their best. If you look at the labels of most gels, they have many ingredients. This isn't because they are scientifically advanced formulations. It’s because their main ingredients (often maltodextrin and brown rice syrup) are low-quality sugars, so they need to add all the other ingredients to reach the minerals and antioxidant levels that occur naturally with maple syrup.

Here’s another way to look at it: Would you add maltodextrin and all that other mystery stuff to your oatmeal, smoothie or pancakes in the morning? Would you feed it to your children? Then why eat that when you’re training and racing?

Why is Endurance Tap better?

With all the testing we’ve done with athletes, these are the three biggest benefits we heard over-and-over again:

 

Even Release of Energy: all athletes reported same-to-better energy levels than with traditional gels, and without the blood sugar spikes because maple syrup is very low on the glycemic index (54 vs. 100+ for maltodextrin).
Easy to Digest: athletes that had chronic stomach issues when taking traditional gels had NO issues with Endurance Tap. They dropped their old brands and used us for their next races.
Easy to Drink: maple syrup is thinner than gels, so you don’t need water to wash it down. This means you can take your calories when you need them, regardless of your water supply. In a race, that’s huge! This also aids digestion.

Think about how this could improve your performance and enjoyment when running, cycling, swimming or other.

 

 

What's in Endurance Tap?

Maple syrup is the base for all our flavours. Because the sodium content of maple syrup is relatively low, we add sea salt for electrolyte replacement. And while maple syrup already digests better than traditional gels, we go one step further and add a small amount of ginger - a known digestive aid - to further ensure you’ll have no stomach distress.

Classic Maple: Organic Canadian Maple Syrup + sea salt + ginger
Vanilla: Organic Canadian Maple Syrup + sea salt + ginger + natural vanilla flavour
Chocolate: Organic Canadian Maple Syrup + sea salt + ginger + natural cocoa flavour + natural caffeine (30mg)

 

Simple is better. Compare the nutrition table of Endurance Tap to whatever you’re using now. You get all the calories, electrolytes and minerals you need, in a natural product that won't cause stomach issues.
