Nuun Product Review

IMG_2739 small.jpg

After running the San Francisco Marathon and feeling horrible at the finish due to dehydration, I realized I needed more electrolytes.  I had been fueling every 45 minutes with gels and drinking Smart Water, but I needed help with hydration.  In my quest to find an electrolyte product that contained natural ingredients while still beinglow carb and sugar free, I found Nuun.  I was thrilled to find an alternative to sports drinks, which are way too sweet for me! 

  
Nuun sent me two tubes of Nuun tabs to review: Nuun Active in Lemonade and Nuun All Day in Blueberry Pomegranate.  I started using the Nuun Active after my training runs to help rehydrate and recover quickly.  First off, I noticed they helped me recover quickly without that depleted feeling.  Often times, after a hard training run, I would feel tired and fatigued later in the day, but not when using Nuun tabs.  They left me feeling replenished and rehydrated.

The Lemonade was very refreshing, and I enjoyed the fizzy effervescent feeling when I drank it immediately after the tablet dissolved.  If you don’t like the fizz, then let it a sit a few minutes. Nuun are handy little tablets that dissolve right in your water bottle so you can use them during a run, too.  I prefer the Nuun Active because I need the additional electrolytes before, during, and after a high intensity run or workout.  On my lower intensity days, I use the Nuun All Day with the added vitamins and minerals.  As an endurance athlete, hydration is key and these Nuun tabs make it easy to stay hydrated.  You can pop the tube in your purse and always have them with you just in case! 

My son used them during band camp this summer, while practicing marching on the football field for two hours in direct sun and heat.  They helped him stay focused and hydrated without feeling light headed and nauseous.  Our favorite was the Nuun Active in Lemonade.  The flavors are very light and if you prefer to have them a little more sweet, then just add less water.
