The benefits of Generation UCAN and Superstarch were validated by an independent clinical study conducted at the University of Oklahoma. The experiment compared the effects of Superstarch to maltodextrin when consumed by endurance athletes at points before, during, and after a work out. The experiment showed that Superstarch allows athletes to maintain ideal blood sugar levels over an extended period, enhances metabolic response to exercise, and allows the body to use fat as a source of energy.
Figure 1 shows how Superstarch helps athletes sustain energy by steadily time-releasing glucose into the bloodstream, avoiding the spike and crash of maltodextrin and removing the need to dose repeatedly.
Figure 2 shows how Superstarch suppresses insulin levels in the body when compared to maltodextrin. A spike in insulin inhibits the body's ability to burn fat.
Figure 3 shows how Superstarch results in increased fat breakdown both during exercise and during recovery. By muting insulin response, Superstarch allows the body to tap into its fat stores as an energy source, providing athletes with dual-fuel power and improving their body composition.
1. Sports Drink Mix
2. Plain SuperStarch to add and mix to your liking
3. Protein Enhanced Sports Drink Mix
All flavored drinks come loaded with the electrolytes you need. In general, the best way to use UCAN is to drink one serving of the Sports Drink Mix about 30 minutes before you workout, and drink one serving of the Protein Enhanced Sports Drink Mix immediately following your activity. One single serve packet of Generation UCAN delivers 2-4 hours of sustained energy and provides your body with the fuel it needs to perform at a high level during your workout, and the carbohydrate and protein combination it needs to restore and rebuild afterwards.
For athletes over 200 lbs, it may be advantageous to double these recommendations. For athletes interested in adding muscle mass, drinking two servings of the Protein Enhanced Sports Drink Mix following your activity will help provide the extra calories, carbohydrates, and protein necessary for you to achieve your goal.
