“As I became more aware of the benefits of moderating blood glucose and being able to access fat as fuel, I looked for different energy sources. I wanted something that provided a sustained source of energy that would last for the many hours required to finish a 70.3 or IRONMAN successfully. I’ve tested UCAN with a continuous blood glucose monitor and in real-world testing at races and in training. In all cases, UCAN is a great tool for athletes looking for a sustained energy source without the risk of crashing or experiencing digestive issues.”
