Generation UCAN was when a child diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder had to be tube-fed every 2 hours to maintain normal blood sugar levels. His body was unable to break down certain carbohydrates, such as glycogen. This was life threatening, so his parents did some fund raising and that is how Superstarch was discovered, which is a complex carbohydrate that stabilizes blood-sugar levels for several hours. It has also been proven to vastly improve athletes’ performances!
Generation UCAN was formed because of the potential of Superstarch. It is a healthy energy source that can help you get through your workout, get rid of your hunger feeling, improve GI distress during marathon runs, help you burn more fat at higher workout intensities, and much more!
The Snack Bar
They have recently come out with an all-new Snack Bar from Generation UCAN. You can have the powder or the bar before, during, and after your workout for steady-energy to keep you going stronger longer. You can also just use it to control in-between meal cravings or as a healthy on-the-go treat. I eat a bar before I workout, but I also eat one when I am busy or in a hurry and I don’t have time to eat. It tastes better than any healthy bar I have EVER had!
- 10g of Superstarch
- 6g of protein (now has more added protein in some of the flavors)
- 5g of fiber
- 4g of coconut oil
- Low sugar
- No trans fat
- Pre-workout snack to curb hunger and give steady energy
- Desk drawer snack for the midday low
- On-the-go snack in the morning to start day with stable blood sugar
- Flavors Chocolate Peanut Butter or Chocolate
Generation UCAN has 3 different flavors. The unflavored tub is the cheapest (doesn’t taste good unless you mix it with something), and the other 3 flavors are a little more expensive.
- Tropical Orange – See price here
- Lemonade – See price here
- Vanilla Cream with Protein – See price here
- Cocoa Delite – See price here
- Cinnamon Delite – See price here
- Chocolate with Protein – See price here
The bars are a lot cheaper, and taste even better. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar is my absolute favorite, and a lot of my friends thin so as well. However if you want to try the chocolate, it still tastes better than any protein bar I have ever had! See prices here!
Update: UCAN now has a new Hydrate Electrolyte Replacement that comes in a container or individual packets.
It contains 5 essential electrolytes, has no sugar, and zero calories. This helps re-hydrate your body. You can mix it with water to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
If you are trying to lose weight and change your nutrition lifestyle, this bar can help you get rid of those hunger cravings you get throughout the day. Sometimes it is hard to eat smaller portions, but this bar will help you stay committed to those weight loss goals! Just don’t let it be the only thing you eat. And if you have diabetes or problems with your blood sugar, this will help stabilize it so you don’t get those sugar cravings or huge drops in your blood sugar.
Also, if you are wanting to run a marathon or you run them all the time, I STRONGLY encourage you to try this product. You will be surprised at how much it will improve your run! It can also help you go longer in your workouts to improve strength and anaerobic capacity.
This product is a huge WIN in my book, and I recommend it to all of my clients!
If you have any questions or an opinion on the bars please leave a comment below, I would be glad to hear them.
Live Well and Live On,
