Now for a bit of history on YU-CCAN over the last 35 years: 

Rick Chaba had been involved in sales, management and manufacturing for over thirty-five years.  He was introduced to YU-CCAN Herbal Supplements while recovering from a serious car accident in 1988, and immediately became a spokesperson for the products.

Marg Chaba's background includes years of clerical, bookkeeping and administrative roles with a large accounting firm.

YU-CCAN Corporation’s head office has been located in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada since the early nineties, along with our manufacturing plant and distribution facilities.

Rick and Marg were both involved in the day to day operations of the company. They maintain close relationships with many distributors, and celebrate when customers share how the YU-CCAN line has changed their lives.  

We believe that the YU-CCAN family of products can make a difference in everyone’s life.  Our mission is to continue to make these affordable, effective products available to anyone who has a desire to maintain good health and a healthy environment.

A Bit More History:

Living as we do just north of the most powerful economy in the world, we become accustomed to hearing of new companies and developments which start in the United States, then migrate north for us to experience.  It is a refreshing change to find a company that is an innovative powerhouse in the alternative health field, which has its roots in Canada.  YU-CCAN Corporation is just such a company.

YU-CCAN Corporation was founded in Calgary, Alberta in the eighties.  The mission of the company is to address some very vital environmental issues by developing a line of agricultural, industrial and health products that work in harmony with Mother Nature, instead of against her.

To enjoy peak health and longevity, we must be participants in the game of life, not merely spectators.  If we truly want to enjoy peak health and longevity without the pain and discomfort of disease, we must first understand that the only instrument capable of genuinely healing is our own body.

Disease and old age have their roots in our sick and chemically denatured foods, poisoned water, and polluted environment.  If we truly want to become young and healthy, we must first accept responsibility for our own health and vitality.  Remember:  “Serious disease and peak health cannot exist in the same body at the same time.”  By understanding how our bodies function, what our body’s individual needs are, and by addressing these needs, we can enjoy peak health and vitality without the presence of disease.

The increasing interest in herbal supplements and other alternative medicines stems from our experience with synthesized drugs and their adverse side effects.  No one system of medicine is one hundred percent successful against all disease.  However, because our bodies are so adept at processing plant material, they automatically absorb what is needed, and eliminate what is not.  The role of herbs may be indirect, such as aiding in digestion, encouraging relaxation, improving circulation or supporting elimination functions.  Deficiencies in any of these areas add to the burden of disease with which the body has to cope.  If these supplementary problems can be addressed, the chances of recovery for a specific illness are significantly improved.

YU-CCAN Corporation’s products have been readily accepted in the marketplace because they are totally organic.  The main ingredient in many YU-CCAN products is a saponin (a natural soap), which is extracted from a desert plant, the Schidigera Yucca.  Yucca is not a cactus, but a member of the lily family.  Out of forty species of yucca, only five have a concentration of saponins.  These saponins act as a catalyst to friendly bacteria cultures by increasing the permeability of the cell walls, allowing microorganisms to better use available food.  Consequently, when introduced to toxic waste, they speed up the breakdown process.

Initially, the company developed a product designed to break down solid waste and control odours in hog, poultry and dairy operations.  This product proved so effective that it rapidly achieved success in industry for use in septic tanks, processing and sewage treatment plants, and controlling odours in effluent ponds.  Further research to clarify dirty water and selectively eliminate odours in ponds and dugouts was completed.  The result of this research is a product called Clean 'n' Clear which, in addition to industrial applications, is used in swimming pools, spas and ornamental ponds found in parks and on golf courses.

Further research resulted in the development of Super-Gro to enhance the performance of the microorganisms in the soil.  University studies and government testing showed a remarkable increase in the yield of cereal crops, especially where stress conditions exist such as drought, high alkalinity, soil compactness and the like.  Another major benefit includes a noted reduction in the use of chemical fertilizers.

A natural feed supplement known as Improve was originally developed for the livestock industry, where it was used to help animals better utilize their feed rations by enhancing and supporting the natural flora in the intestinal tract.  It is now widely accepted by veterinarians and the general public as a health supplement for dogs, cats, and other household pets.

It is the company’s belief that the human body is the finest piece of machinery ever created.  With the excessive amounts of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and fungicides in use today, much of our food chain is contaminated at its source, and these toxins have a tendency to create stress conditions in our bodies.  Many of the “fast” convenience foods we eat consist of bleached sugars and starches, which create the mucous coating on the wall of the small intestine.  Unfortunately, this is where most of our nutrients are absorbed.

Consequently, proper assimilation cannot take place and the body becomes starved for the nutrients it needs to maintain healthy form.  Much of the food is left impacted on the wall of the colon where it putrefies, and becomes toxic.  The toxins are absorbed into the blood where they are transported throughout the system to a number of vital organs.  We believe, as do most medical people, that by keeping our intestinal tract clean, we would eliminate ninety percent of the illness known to mankind.  The saponin we extract from the yucca plant has a cleansing effect throughout the intestinal tract, which allows the intestines to absorb water, and assimilate nutrients much more efficiently.

YU-CCAN Herbal Supplement doesn’t cure anything, but it does put the body in the proper posture for healing itself by cleaning the intestinal tract, and assisting in efficient, healthy elimination.

In 1991, the company proudly introduced CanAid Herbal Supplement to its product line.  CanAid has been described by many credible medical authorities as perhaps the greatest single product available for blood purification.  Although YU-CCAN Corporation would love to take credit for CanAid's development, it is actually a traditional Native American remedy that came into public awareness, and became the centre of a political battle which has raged in North America since the thirties.

CanAid Herbal Supplement is a totally natural product derived from four specific herbs.  It contains no sweeteners or preservatives.

In 1993, YU-CCAN became the exclusive distributor for Air-Aid, a naturally occurring variety of Zeolite.  This particular mineral has the molecular structure and properties to allow it to absorb odours caused by ammonia from urine and excrement.  It can also absorb hydrogen sulfide and many other unwelcome gasses and odours, by means of a positive-negative ion exchange, trapping odours within its molecular structure.

Another odour controlling product called Fresh was introduced in an aerosol format.  Fresh is a totally natural and effective product that neutralizes odours instantly and permanently.  Fresh eliminates odours that are left in such places as curtains, upholstery, pet areas, or musty rooms.  It is designed to instantly produce an odourless environment without a lingering smell.  Using Fresh along with Air-Aid will result in ultimate air quality by eliminating odours, instead of just masking them.

With the popular trend to being physically fit and trim, a growing popularity for both exercise and diet exists in our society.  Both of these activities, while being very positive, tend to put stress on the body.  YU-CCAN has addressed this concern by introducing B-Fit in 1994.  This amazing product is a unique combination of pure herbal extracts, synergistically blended to enhance the metabolism, while also giving support to every organ and gland in the body.  B-Fit is truly a product that promotes robust health.

Our distributors often expressed concerns about the purity of their drinking water.  After researching several different methods of water purification, in 1996, YU-CCAN introduced the Reverse Osmosis Water System to the product line.  The Shower Filters were also introduced that same year, to address the problems presented by chlorinated water.

We are exposed to heavy metals such as lead, mercury and aluminum on a daily basis.  These and other toxic metals contribute to depression, hyperactivity, learning disorders, nervous system imbalances, fatigue, memory problems, allergies and yeast, or candida, in the body.  In 2002 YU-CCAN introduced Revive, a highly concentrated form of Cilantro.  Revive helps to rid the body of toxic metals (oral chelation), supporting the liver, kidney, and colon in the process.

In 2006, YU-CCAN addressed normal menopausal discomforts such as hot flashes, night sweats and irritability with the introduction of Cool Eez, a concentrated blend of pure Mediterranean Sage Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Vitamin E.  Sage’s antiperspirant properties are of value to men as well, reducing sweat and the accompanying bacteria that contributes to embarrassing body odour.  Sage oil is also a potent antioxidant, preventing free-radical damage, protecting cells from deterioration, and aiding in the prevention of serious cellular disorders.

In 1996, YU-CCAN Corporation was issued a long-term import license from the Chinese government.  This was the first time that a natural product manufactured outside of China had been accepted for import as a medicine in China.  YU-CCAN Corporation is proud to provide a world class product which addresses major health concerns, not only here at home, but also in the international arena.

Healing and health is not a casual pastime, nor a spectator sport.  Look after your body - you only have one!
