Generation UCAN, More Than Your Average Sugar-Based Drink

Generation UCAN is one of the newest brands on our nutrition shelf but it's more than just a nutritional sugar-based drink. Generation UCAN is an idea, a feeling, an attitude, a fresh perspective. They are a new generation with a 'Today's the Day' mentality.

Their vision is simple: Provide a healthy energy source for athletes of all levels so they can achieve their very best. It doesn't stop there. They intend to empower minds and prove that "can't" is a thing of the past. After that, they plan to host charitable fundraisers, tackle childhood obesity and stick a flag on Mars.

Generation UCAN's revolutionary nutrition delivers steady, long-lasting energy without the spike and crash of sugar-based fuels, but did you know the origins of UCAN had nothing to do with running? The unique SuperStarch carbohydrate in UCAN was originally developed for kids with a life threatening blood sugar disease. This one-of-a-kind energy source now fuels top runners like 4x Olympian Meb Keflezighi and everyday athletes looking to stay healthy and fit. 

Their revolutionary nutritional composition is tried and true. Just look at this commissioned study by an independent IRB study at the University of Oklahoma that studied the effects of SuperStarch in athletes. The findings from this carefully controlled, double blinded experiment confirmed that SuperStarch:

  • Maintains the most desirable blood glucose levels.
  • Demonstrates a muted insulin response.
  • Enhances the body's ability to use fat as an energy source.
Serum insulin levels during the study.
Fat oxidation levels during the study.

They key takeaway from this study is the increased fat breakdown both during exercise and for an extended period during recovery, making Generation UCAN a weight-loss supplement as well as providing your body with natural energy for peak physical performance.

This ability to tap into fat stores while providing steady glucose levels parallels a hybrid car that runs on battery power but can also tap into its gas tank as needed. The dual fuel power of SuperStarch is what helps athletes improve body composition, gain strength and speed and achieve desired weight.


During a recent article published by Fit Bottomed Girls on weight loss, the author reached out to running coach and exercise scientist Greg McMillan for his best weight-loss tips for runners and spoke highly of the supplement. 

"UCAN SuperStarch is a low glycemic carbohydrate that keeps blood sugar levels steady. I mix it with protein plus healthy fats for a great meal-replacement shake that is lower in calories, but keeps me from feeling hungry. This is a great option on low-carb days."

Ingesting a UCAN-infused shake with protein immediately after hard sessions allows the body to reduce carbohydrate intake in the remaining meals while still feeling full and reducing overeating. Most people find doing so helps them keep their weight under control.
