Steve Burton is loved by soap fans for his stints as THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Dylan and GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Jason, but he’s also quite the entrepreneur, recently launching Burton Nutrition!
“So excited!” he tweeted. “A family business! Can’t wait to help peeps achieve their goals!”
Burton reports that his wife is certified in nutrition and he himself is now going through the same certification process himself. And his brother-in-law, John Gustin, is a personal trainer and certified in nutrition as well. "It’s just our passion and our lifestyle," he declared on Instagram.

Burton Nutrition is selling meal replacement shakes to help people lose weight and reach their fitness goals. He’s offering an autographed photo of himself to the first 5,000 people who join him and more importantly, the Burton Challenge community on the site. “I believe the best way to get the results you’re looking for is to be surrounded by others on the same journey,” he says on the site, “and creating a positive environment for support and accountability.”
“We had a great launch this weekend,” Burton announced during a Facebook Live video. “We got some great stuff coming up. We got a lot more products happening. We’ve got so much stuff planned, I can’t wait.”
And longtime fans are well aware that Burton knows what he's talking about when it comes to exercise and nutrition!
