Best underlay for impact noise reduction?

I did a search on "underlay", but I didn't really see anything specific to impact noise redution, anyway my question:
The upstairs floor in our new two-storey is plywood on joists, and I guess we are resigned to a certain degree of impact noise from footfall (kids!) transmitting to downstairs. We are going to lay timber floors, and I'm looking for a recommendation for the best underlay for damping the impact noise. There are a lot of products out there, and they all make haughty claims, but it would be great if someone could pass on their own experience, good or bad ...
Carpet is not really an option.
Many thanks!
