I've just started working out again and I feel really out of shape. I only workout for about 45 minutes at a time. Is UCAN just for athletes or is there a way I can use it too?
UCAN is not just for athletes- it’s for anyone who is active! UCAN is the ideal pre-exercise fuel, especially when you’re just starting a new fitness program. The stable blood sugar UCAN provides helps prevent the feelings of fatigue and weakness so often experienced with a blood sugar crash during exercise. Avoiding the crash is critical whether you’re doing the Elliptical for 45 minutes or competing in the Boston Marathon! By consuming UCAN prior to your workouts, no matter the length or intensity, you’re setting the stage for your blood sugar to remain stable throughout the duration of your workout to help you stay energized from start to finish.
Are there other ways I can use UCAN outside of exercise?
Definitely! UCAN bars are a great snack between meals to help curb cravings and avoid a crash. Our UCAN Energy Powders can be added to your protein shake or smoothie for a sustained energy boost. Adding UCAN to your shake will help it last longer by giving you a slow-release of complex carbs. Mix UCAN with protein, healthy fats like nut butter, vegetables and fruits for a healthy meal replacement shake for steady, long-lasting energy with added nutrients.
How does the SuperStarch™ carbohydrate in UCAN help support fat burn?
One of the most unique characteristics of the SuperStarch™ carbohydrate in UCAN products is its low-insulin response, which is also the reason it helps support fat burning. When blood sugar is elevated after you eat a sugary food, insulin is released from the pancreas as a response. Insulin’s job, in this case, is to get the blood sugar back down to an acceptable level. When insulin is elevated, it temporarily blocks fat burn while it regulates the rise in blood sugar. In other words, a rise in insulin means a decrease in your ability to burn fat for fuel! SuperStarch™ exerts such a low impact on blood sugar that the insulin response, in turn, is also very low. This means that SuperStarch™ is a carbohydrate (energy source) that does not inhibit your ability to burn fat for fuel compared to other carbs.
