- Steady energy by stabilizing blood sugar for up to 2 hours
- Enhanced fat burn by minimizing fat-storing hormone insulin
- No GI distress - SuperStarch is a natural, slow-burning carbohydrate that's gentle on the stomach
- Naturally sweetened using Stevia
- Added electrolytes, no added sugars, gluten-free
UCAN products are powered by SuperStarch, are rich in electrolytes, contain no added sugars, are gluten-free, and can be used before, during and after your activity. We are nutrition products that are NCAA compliant.
As if these products playing it fast and loose with your energy levels isn't enough, they also elevate blood insulin levels, inhibiting your body's ability to burn fat. Athletes who rely on these kinds of sugary products often fail to reach their true potential and face health risks such as obesity, malnutrition and diabetes.
Generation UCAN's main ingredient, "SuperStarch," provides sustained natural energy levels without spikes and crashes. Our SuperStarch is a complex carbohydrate that breaks down slowly over time, keeping you above baseline significantly longer. Welcome to a whole new world with no re-dosing, no volatile highs or lows, and no sugar (your dentist will love you); perform better by allowing your body to use fat for fuel. Generation UCAN allows you to do more with a whole lot less. In this case, less IS more.
Generation UCAN, powered by SuperStarch, stabilizes blood sugar and minimizes insulin response, delivering several scientifically validated benefits:
Optimized performance with steady energy when you need it, without the spike and crash of sugar and maltodextrin based products.
Sustained energy with time-released delivery of glucose, keeping you above baseline longer.
Enhanced fat burn allowing you to improve body composition as you burn fat for fuel during your workout and keep burning fat while you recover due to suppressed insulin response.
Speedier recovery as your body is able to use protein to repair and restore your muscles rather than for energy, since blood sugar is stable.
No gastric distress, because SuperStarch is a large molecule that passes through the stomach quickly and is digested slowly in the intestines.
In search of further validation, the UCAN Company commissioned an independent IRB study at the University of Oklahoma to study the effects of SuperStarch in athletes. The findings from this carefully controlled, double blinded experiment confirmed that SuperStarch::
Maintains the most desirable blood glucose levels
Demonstrates a muted insulin response
Enhances the body's ability to use fat as an energy source.
These three main conclusions show that SuperStarch enhances metabolic efficiency and puts the individual in an ideal performance state.
The OK study results validated that SuperStarch is characterized by a steady release of glucose that prevents hyper- and hypoglycemia, lessens an early spike, and enables maintenance of glucose levels. This yields the benefit of reliable, extended energy without the need to refuel repeatedly.
The effect of SuperStarch on insulin response is among the patent-pending findings of the Oklahoma Study. As demonstrated by the graph, the insulin response after maltodextrin was nearly eight times that of the response to SuperStarch.
The profile demonstrated by SuperStarch is highly desirable as an energy source. By muting insulin response it allows the body to tap into fat stores, the body's natural and abundant source of energy.
This unique feature of flat lining of insulin while providing energy is what makes experts like University of Connecticut kinesiologist, Dr. Jeff Volek (author of the new Atkins Book) recommend this carbohydrate over all others.
Another revolutionary and patent-pending finding was the increased fat breakdown both during exercise and for an extended period during recovery. This is enabled by the diminished production of insulin that traditionally inhibits the breakdown and oxidation of fat. By enhancing fat burning both during and after exercise, SuperStarch helps the individual achieve the ideal body composition.
This ability to tap into fat stores while providing steady glucose levels parallels a hybrid car that runs on battery power but can also tap into its gas tank as needed. The dual fuel power of SuperStarch is what helps athletes improve body composition, gain strength and speed and achieve desired weight. You don't have to be a pro to see these results. In fact, when accompanied with regular exercise, you too can transform your body with Generation UCAN.
