Generation UCAN is powered by SuperStarch, a healthy, natural, gluten-free innovation in carbohydrate nutrition. SuperStarch is a complex carbohydrate (derived from non-GMO corn) that uniquely stabilizes blood sugar and causes virtually no reaction from the fat-storage hormone insulin. It’s backed by proven science. Finally there’s a healthier, more efficient energy source than sugars, caffeine, or high-carb meals. Originally discovered for children with life-threatening energy imbalances, SuperStarch is a revolutionary fuel being used for ENERGY, SPORTS, and FITNESS.
SUPERSTARCH :: A REVOLUTIONARY CARB
A CARB WITH NO CRASH
A CARB WITH NO INSULIN SPIKE
A CARB THAT ALLOWS FAT BURN
A CARB THAT DOESN’T BOTHER THE STOMACH
“Superstarch represents a major advancement and is legitimately the most exciting development in sports nutrition this century. It provides a carbohydrate source that delivers steady energy without blocking the ability to burn fat.”
~Dr. Jeff Volek, PhD, Top Nutrition Kinesiologist, Leading Low-Carb Researcher
“It doesn’t matter the age, athlete, or sport. Using SuperStarch to stabilize blood sugar and teach your body to burn more fat is the real deal for any athletic and health-conscious individual.”
~Bob Seebohar, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS, 2008 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team Dietitian
“SuperStarch has so much potential for health and exercise performance because it gives us energy without disrupting what’s already going on in the metabolic background.”
~ Dr. Cathy Yeckel, PhD, Yale University Researcher

Debbie and Varun talk about the story of UCAN and why we endurance athletes needs this type of fuel for training and racing long distance. We will discuss what is wrong with the other high sugar “quick energy” products on the market (sugar) and what happens when we fuel with them (blood sugar roller coaster).
How do we know if we are fat burners and not sugar burners? Well how long can you go without eating or getting the low blood sugar headaches? Do you need a gel and liquid sugar calories each hour or could you train with a slow release fuel as UCAN and spare the GI distress? We discuss if it is all right to use UCAN for fueling on long workouts when we are high carb eaters and if you have to be a low carb athlete daily to use UCAN. Key: Stabilizing blood sugar levels.
How should we time fueling with UCAN on a long bike and run as well as how frequently? Should we drink water separately at the same time? What about adding fat to the bottle of UCAN as MCT C8 oil (Mickey’s C8)?
