    Episode 103: Discover SuperStarch – a NEW Kind of Carb that’s GOOD for You

    Discover SuperStarch – a NEW Kind of Carb that’s GOOD for You
     
    – The MOVEMENT Movement with Steven Sashen Episode 103 with Peter Kaufman
     
    Peter Kaufman was inspired over a decade ago, along with three other folks, to help a child and his family better manage a very rare disease. They started The UCAN Company and after several years of research and discovery, they were successful in making his disease more manageable, allowing Jonah, one of ​UCAN​'s​ ​founder’s sons, to maintain his blood sugar for eight hours and sleep through the night for the first time in his life in 2009 when he was 7 years old, and significantly improved his family’s life. 
     
    The nutritional solution, a unique, patented, completely natural carbohydrate they have named SuperStarch, has since improved the performance of many elite athletes and it has helped tens of thousands of individuals exercise better, improve their health and lose weight.  This new revolutionary carbohydrate is so different than anything in the world today, that it even helps those on keto and low-carb diets get past energy deficits to improve their exercise performance, while not taking them out of ketosis! 
     
    Listen to this episode of The MOVEMENT Movement with Peter Kaufman about SuperStarch, a new kind of carb that’s good for you.
     
    Here are some of the beneficial topics covered on this week’s show:
    How SuperStarch keeps anyone’s blood sugar stable for hours. Why resistant starches provide no form of energy, unlike SuperStarch. How you can throw SuperStarch into a yogurt or smoothie for more energy. How most people stay in ketosis when they eat SuperStarch. Why SuperStarch is great for runners and other athletes alike.

CG is a real branch ,

I love this podcast !

Steven is an enthusiastic, passionate and courteous host. All of his guests bring wonderful information and wisdom.
I have been wearing Xero shoes exclusively for one year. HFS and prio for running. Terraflex, daylite, Denver, and excursion to work. Sandals (Naboso, z-trail, Veracruz) for leisure in hot south Texas.
My feet feel awesome! No more plantar fasciitis!!! My feet are stronger and wider and my balance has improved!
It would be amazing if Steven could have Danny Dryer, founder of Chi-Running, on this podcast !
Living feet first !!!

Let the guests speak!

This podcast is good, but it would be much better if Stephen allowed his guests to finish their thoughts before jumping in and cutting them off to tell a story he’s told on the last 6 episodes.
