In search of further validation, the UCAN Company commissioned an independent IRB study at the University of Oklahoma to study 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.
These three main conclusions show that SuperStarch enhances metabolic efficiency and puts the individual in an ideal performance state.
Glucose Response Findings
The Oklahoma study results validated that SuperStarch is characterised by a steady release of glucose that prevents hyper- and hypoglycemia, lessens an early spike and enables maintenance of glucose levels. This yields the benefit of reliable, extended energy without the need to refuel repeatedly.
Insulin Response Findings
The effect of SuperStarch on insulin response is among the patent-pending findings of the Oklahoma Study. The insulin response after maltodextrin was nearly eight times that of the response to SuperStarch.
The profile demonstrated by SuperStarch is highly desirable as an energy source. By muting insulin response it allows the body to tap into fat stores, the body's natural and abundant source of energy.
This unique feature of flat lining of insulin while providing energy is what makes experts like University of Connecticut kinesiologist, Dr Jeff Volek (author of the new Atkins Book) recommend this carbohydrate over all others.
Fat Oxidation Response Findings
Another revolutionary and patent-pending finding was the increased fat breakdown both during exercise and for an extended period during recovery. This is enabled by the diminished production of insulin that traditionally inhibits the breakdown and oxidation of fat. By enhancing fat burning both during and after exercise, SuperStarch helps the individual achieve the ideal body composition.
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. You don't have to be a pro to see these results. In fact, when accompanied with regular exercise, you too can transform your body with Generation UCAN.
