product description
Nuun Active Hydration is a simple and easy to use solution but addresses a serious issue. Nuun spent a lot of time getting the performance of the product right and ensuring the optimal balance. If you like to know more about what nuun is, and why, read this.

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.

ELECTROLYTE CONTENT 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.

CARBOHYDRATE CONTENT 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.

    Gets the job done...doesnt taste the greatest imo
    July 30, 2015
    I bought these to use when the temps were getting hotter to replenish some of the electrolytes I would be losing. They def get the job done but the taste wasnt great. I cant complain though because they did exactly what I needed.
    Pros:

    Taste isnt the best

    The BEST hydration!
    August 14, 2011
    Nuun rocks! I use this exclusively for hydration. Tastes great and is very refreshing. One of the best parts, unlike most sports drinks, this stuff isn't sticky. Had a flat tire and have dirty hands? Don't even think twice about washing your hands with your NUUN, you won't have any problems. Easy hydration on the go, just mix with water wherever you are, you don't need a convenience store for that.
    Pros:
    Tasty
    Best Uses:
    Backpacking, During Workout

    Lover of Nuun
    August 11, 2011
    I am a huge lover of Nuun and I use it all the time. Living in Tucson staying hydrated in the summer can be a bit of chore. I keep Nuun in my desk at work and pop a tab in my bottle 2-3 times a day to make sure I am well hydrated for hot afternoon workouts. There is a wide variety of flavors so there is a taste for everyone my favorite is the Pink Lemonade, Lemon-Lime, and Ice Tea. Really though, there isn't a flavor I don't like! The fizzy bubbles make it easy and enjoyable to drink and very refreshing on long rides/runs. The tubes are compact and lightweight so they are easy to carry in your jersey pocket on rides or throw in a gym bag or purse.
    Pros:
    Tasty, Travels well
    Best Uses:
    During Workout, After Workout, Before Workout, Everyday, Backpacking

    Nuun Active Hydration Tube - New Flavor!!!
    January 17, 2008
    I took nuun because I was overloading my system with too many carbs in other drinks with heat training. I tried Nuun and it worked so well I completed my first IM in lousiville with it! Great product.

    Nuun Active Hydration Tube - New Flavor!!!
    January 10, 2008
    I love nuun for those shorter rides where you don't need any extra carbs. It has a really light taste and has no added sugars, so no extra calories that I just don't need. Also great for staying hydrated in warmer or humid climates or before and after races. Super convenient, too!

    Nuun Active Hydration Tube - New Flavor!!!
    January 8, 2008
    Aside from the electrolytes provided, adding this to my water bottles makes me WANT to drink, something I have trouble with as I get fatigued and my water gets warm.

    Nuun Active Hydration Tube - New Flavor!!!
    January 6, 2008
    These are great for me since I don't like to take in too many calories when I'm out for a run, but it's hot and still need hydration. The taste is light enough that I'll sit in the office with a bottle to keep my electrolytes in balance. The tube is handy as well to stash.

    Nuun Active Hydration Tube - New Flavor!!!
    January 10, 2006
    I mixed neutral PSP with nuun tablets for most of my carbs, I then added a nuun tablet to each bottle of water that I took on board during the bike. This worked a treat, it's the first time that I've completed an IM without throwing up once. Usually I get an overload of all things synthetic and sweet. As a direct result of this I'm sure, I won my age group and have just booked my flights to Kona. I'll be using even more of the tablets over there I'm sure. I've also preach my new nutrition regime to anyone who will listen.
