I discovered UCAN about five years ago for fueling for running. I use UCAN hydrate daily, the UCAN Energy bars for delicious snacks, and the UCANEnergy Powder before track workouts, long runs and on race morning. I have found the products really work for me, especially with my sensitive stomach. I don’t “bonk” in the hard efforts when I use UCAN to fuel. I really enjoy the taste and love that the products are easy to consume!
