Coming Soon

Supersapiens 3.0 is expected to be released in October 2022. Please follow Supersapiens for updates.

How does glucose monitoring impact fueling and nutritional planning?
Visualizing how food impacts your glucose levels will dial-in personal nutrition, increase energy, reduce inflammation, promote recovery, sustain performance, and provide transparency into how your body manages energy. Learn how one runner optimized his fueling and nutrition plan in training to achieve a new personal best at the Boston Marathon.

How can glucose data help with fueling and nutrition planning?
Glucose data can be used to evaluate risk of existing nutritional plan, experimenting for optimal energy resources and making real-time adjustment both during performance and recovery.79% of surveyed customers changed their overall nutrition habits as a result of visualizing and analyzing glucose data. Learn more about how you can play with your food to get a competitive advantage.

How is fueling data captured and measured?
Fueling data becomes available when the user adds food events. Each food event will have glucose summaries, metrics and supporting KPIs. Daily fueling summaries and metrics displays a combination of data points collected from the events added to the timeline.

Why should food events be added?
The path to better performance and recovery is through fueling. Add food events that capture the entire glucose response triggered by a meal, snack or supplement. Extend the duration out another 90 min if adding a food event during or immediately after consumption. 

What food macronutrients can I track?
Track the macronutrients associated with the meals, snacks, and supplements added to your timeline. The Carbs, Proteins, and Fat entries will be totaled and included in the Daily Recovery Metrics.

How to add details to assess food events?
Customize event filters by tagging food events with keywords. Consider uniform labels for more robust comparisons and analysis over time. Add personalized notes to reference specific details to support your research and evaluations.

What data is available in the daily fueling summary?
The Fueling Summary highlights your body's response to your food events. Fueling Summary data tracks the time you spent in your Glucose Recovery Zone (GRZ), Average Rise, and Glucose Stability. Glucose Rise measures how large the change in your glucose was as a result of eating. Adjust your fueling strategy throughout the day to maximize your stability and time within the GRZ.

What distinguishes a fueling event from other events on the list or timeline?
Fueling or food events are presented in blue on both the glucose timeline and event list. Data is analyzed over the Glucose Recovery Zone (GRZ) as opposed to the Glucose Performance Zone (GPZ).

What data is available on the daily fueling metrics?
Providing insight into all the fuel captured in your food events as well as response to this fuel, this is the key dietary summary to use. Totals for macronutrients and food events created are provided alongside response to food metrics. These include: glucose min, max, average and stability as well as time below 70  mg/dL and time above 140 mg/dL. Additionally time in GRZ is provided as is average glucose excursion. Use this section to better understand how your current diet is impacting your glucose.

What data is available when analyzing a food event?
Fueling the body creates stress on the system that results in glucose instability. The most important metric is the % of time in the Glucose Recovery Zone. There are circumstances when it may be appropriate to induce a rush outside of the zone but generally athletes are looking for long sustainable energy sources that do not overexpose the body to glucose or trigger an energy depeleating insulin response. Time in zone during fueling is available for each recovery event. The overall time in the zone is calculated into daily summaries. Below are some other important metrics captured:

  • Average Glucose 
  • Glucose Rise
  • Glucose Stability
  • Time Over  (+140mg/dL)
  • Time Under (-70mg/dL)
  • Glucose Max
  • Glucose Min
