Michael Folan, President and CEO

Michael, 52 is an avid runner, ten-time Ironman finisher and a Cancer Survivor. His unique vision of creating a nutritional system where any person, young or old, with no nutritional background, can create their own personalized isotonic blend of calories, protein and nutrients has changed the world of nutrition.

INFINIT was started in 2006 as a powerful, customizable isotonic all-in-one nutrition solution that naturally maximized the performance for serious endurance athletes all over the world. INFINIT fuels many the worlds’ best athletes in events like the Olympics, Tour de France and Indy 500.

“We created the INFINIT Osmo-fit™ system initially so athletes can fuel all day long and not need to take any food, extra salt or supplements for up to 24 hour racing. INFINIT has grown into the Gold Standard in endurance nutrition. We have always known that our concept of personalized custom-blended nutrition solutions has important applications with the Cancer community along with IBS and other nutritional related diseases. Both Patients and Medical Professionals are constantly searching for a solution that is made just for them and their unique needs.

INFINIT is the only company that provides custom hydration and nutrition supplementation. People are tired of guessing what works with a variety of off the shelf products. The idea that one powder works for everyone is just plain silly. Nutrition should be as unique and the person, we are all different.”

“When it comes to nutrition, there shouldn’t be a “one-fits-all” approach. Each individual is different, therefore every athlete and every patient’s nutrition should be individualized. Proper nutrition affects mood, feelings, performance, and energy, among many others. Without proper nutrition, our bodies can’t function properly. Whole food isn’t always the best option during performance, or isn’t possible due to lack of appetite or other reasons. With Infinit Nutrition, athletes and patients can customize a nutrition supplement to optimize health and performance, supplement their diet, recover faster, gain or lose weight, etc., all while fitting their exact needs and taste exactly how they want!”

Dr. Harish Kakarala, MD
INFINIT Nutrition Medical Consultant

Dr. Harish Kakarala, MD INFINIT Nutrition Medical Consultant

Harish Kakarala is a Pulmonary/Critical Care/Sleep physician in Ohio who works in three of the largest health systems in Northeast Ohio. Having worked with a large variety of patients over the past dozen years ranging from young asthmatics trying to stay healthy ill to severely ill patients in the ICU (intensive care unit) battling for their lives to the chronically ill (whether it be people with severe emphysema or cancer patients) struggling to maintain their health, nutrition, and, at times, even just their weight, he has gained a deep understanding for the importance of nutrition.

“INFINIT provides customized solution for chronically ill patients who are having difficulty maintaining their health, weight, or who are getting dehydrated. Think of it as the ultimate vitamin supplement that also keeps you hydrated. My hope is that it will help keep people who already spend far too much time in doctors’ offices and hospitals at home where they belong. This isn’t a miracle cure and shouldn’t be thought of as one, but it may be an important supplement in the never ending battle between health and disease. We need a weapon against the side effects of chronic disease. Now, we may have finally found it.

Nutrition is still often under emphasized or even ignored by physicians today. Nutrition is the foundation for any body. It provides all the building blocks for proper organ function which is the start of being healthy. Without proper nutrition for long enough time, nothing, absolutely nothing—even a patient’s immune system—will not work. Malnutrition not only complicates recovery from any kind of illness and impairs wound healing after surgery, but it actually makes one more likely to become infected.”

Dr. Kar-Ming Lo, MD
INFINIT Nutrition Medical Consultant

Kar-Ming Lo, MD, FCCP is a Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep physician practicing in one of the largest health systems in Ohio who, in his daily work, encounters patients that run the entire gamut of health. From those who are well nourished to those too ill to even heal their wounds. Unfortunately, Dr. Lo has had personal experience when his father was diagnosed with a terminal hepatoma, or liver cancer.

“I saw the difficulty that my father had in consuming enough calories. Our family struggled daily with him to find something, anything that might taste okay enough to consume. We did not have an option that would enable him to maintain adequate caloric and fluid intake while preserving taste. If it wasn’t one thing it was another…too sweet, too acidic, too sour. As such he would not eat. Eventually he lost weight and was consumed by his disease. I wish that there were a product such as INFINIT available back then. Although his cancer was terminal, perhaps he would have been more comfortable, or able to deal with his cancer, if he was not struggling so hard to find a solution that was created for his unique tastes and needs.”

Dr. Ryan Prudoff, DO, MS, FACEP
INFINIT Nutrition Medical Consultant

Dr. Prudoff is an Emergency Physician currently practicing in one of the largest healthcare systems in Ohio. The Emergency Department is a unique environment with exposure to the full spectrum of patients from infancy to the very elderly as well as everyone in between. Using his personal experience as a medical professional combined with an active athlete he has gained a solid background and appreciation for the importance of nutrition in both patient populations and athletic preparation.

“While we commonly think of appropriate nutrition/ hydration in sporting events, it is actually very rare that athletes require emergency attention because appropriate nutrition is emphasized in these populations. In acute medical conditions (i.e. cancer, asthma, pneumonia, urinary tract infection), the body is stressed and responds by increasing the metabolic process to help fight off the disease. The increase in metabolic process results in a person expending more energy and causing a similar body response as when exercising (increases in breathing, heart rate, temperature, sweating and fatigue).”

“I regularly care for very ill pediatric and elderly patients who can have a compounding issue with nutrition or hydration which makes recovery even more difficult. Having a product like INFINIT, that can be customized for age as well as disease to help supplement a person’s nutrition hydration is an important tool for me to help patients maintain health and improve the healing process.”
