FORMULATION AND NUTRITION
nuun’s formulation is based upon research and feedback from some of the world’s top academic and practicing experts in the field of sports medicine (specifically dehydration and hyponatremia). Development focused on the three most import aspects for proper hydration:
SPEED OF ABSORPTION
The most important characteristic of what you drink while you are active is the speed at which your body can absorb it. The concentration of dissolved salts and sugars (osmolarity, for those more technically inclined) determines how fast the drink can cross from your gut into your bloodstream where it can re-hydrate and replenish. nuun produces a hypotonic solution so that your body will absorb nuun faster than the leading “sports drinks” or even water alone. Your body is therefore, able to restore optimal water and electrolyte balance more quickly.
The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that people who are active for more than one hour get 500 – 700mg of sodium for every litre of water they consume. This is up to three times the sodium that traditional “sports drinks” provide. In fact some experts in the field believe that sodium concentrations should be closer to the 700 – 1000mg range. nuun provides 700mg of sodium for every litre of drink -- this amount, in addition to the other critical electrolytes contained in every nuun tablet ensures that you are adequately replenishing your body’s stores to help you perform at your best, and stay healthy.
To ensure rapid absorption, nuun contains no carbohydrates. Ingesting drinks containing high levels of carbohydrates can have two undesirable effects when it comes to hydration. Carbohydrates can slow the rate at which your stomach empties and therefore delays the availability of the water and electrolytes, they also increase the osmolality of what you are drinking delaying absorption beyond your stomach. Please Note: If you are participating in intense exercise for more than one hour you should also consume carbohydrates to ensure that you can sustain energy levels for working muscles. Carbohydrate loaded sports bars, or gels are effective means of providing you with the energy you require.
The following is the nutritional information for a serving of nuun based on one tablet dissolved in 500ml (~16oz) of water. There are 6 calories per serving of nuun. Kona Cola has 20mg of caffeine.
