The fueling choice of Boston and New York City Marathon champion Meb Keflezighi, UCAN Superstarch Low-Carb Sports Drink is a low-carb sports drink that allows you to tap into your own fatty acid stores during long exercise sessions. This unique sports drink mix is for anyone who wants 100% pure energy…without dumping a huge load of sweet and sugary carbohydrate into the body. This results in stable energy levels and the ability to take in half as many calories from carbohydrates!
UCAN is a pure, non-GMO corn based fueling product that results in a very low release of insulin and extremely stable blood sugar during exercise (or rest) compared to other gels, sports drinks, powders or bars. Drink 30-45 minutes before a workout with 8-12 ounces of water, and then consume 1-2 servings per hour during long workouts (resulting in about half the caloric intake compared to traditional fueling sources like gels and bars).
We offer UCAN in 30 serving tub in either a plain or a tropical orange flavor (both flavors are naturally sweetened, have added electrolytes, no added sugar, are gluten free and 100% pure SuperStarch). With no artificial ingredients or nasty fillers, Generation UCAN will put your body in the ideal performance state and make you more metabolically efficient, thus allowing you to burn more fat as a fuel. To listen to an excellent interview about how to practically use this, and why burning more fats during exercise is good, listen to this interview.
