Cathy Yeckel - UCAN energy drink

"UCAN has all the right elements for being something that is very revolutionary. We've always thought of drinking carbohydrate during exercise as having an underlying urgency: we need sugar, we need it now, we need it rapidly. But Superstarch turns everything on its head. Superstarch gives little bits of energy over time, keeping the system stable. Its the idea of keeping your blood sugar stable, which is so incredible. Superstarch has so much potential for health and exercise performance, because it gives us energy without disrupting whats already going on in the metabolic background."
