New Tech Banned by UCI from use in Professional Bike Races.
Continuous Blood Sugar Monitors banned for use in professional cycling competitions as the use of the data is so powerful it would change the outcome of races according to the UCI.
Knowing your blood glucose levels at any point in time helps you make more informed decisions with diet and physical activity and can help you stay in your healthy glucose range. Each person has a personal and unique blood sugar response to carbohydrates and sugars and a continuous glucose monitor, or CGM, can support individuals to become more conscious of their fuel intake and help make changes to their lifestyle. Keeping your blood glucose steady and avoiding the highs and lows is one very important solution to optimal health and sports performance.
The efficacy of Reducose©, which has been shown in multiple clinical studies to significantly reduce post-meal blood sugar spikes by turn fast carbohydrates in to slow ones, is immediately visible on Continious Glucose Monitors (CGM) confirming that the effect is immediate and measurable. Tech innovations will soon make continuous glucose monitoring available in wearable and non-invasive ways. The smartwatches of the very near future will be adding CGM features which will enable mainstream consumers to monitor and gain insights in the blood glucose response to certain foods. These insights will empower consumers to have better control over their health and will help them make better lifestyle choices.
