Many weeks ago I started training for a marathon ;)
One of the challenges of training was staying hydrated especially when running in the heat. My friend and fellow marathoner in training Gene recommended I try some Nuun.
Nuun is hydration tablets you drop into your water to give you some electrolytes. The beauty of Nuun is it does not have sugar!!! Yep I will just include this from their website:
- Zero sugar
- Important electrolytes
- Under 8 calories
- Easy to use
The tablets come in a tube and all you have to do is drop one into your water bottle and it dissolves within minutes.
I must admit I was skeptical. I do not like flavored things since switching to drinking water all day most things just do not taste good anymore.
Well I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised! Not only did it taste good, but it did not upset my stomach as most flavored things seem to do lately. Not only did it taste good, it kept me hydrated on some pretty tough runs. I would mix it ahead of time and carry it on my fuel belt.
I recommend it for people who are looking for electrolytes without all the calories, chemicals and sugars in regular sports drinks. you can buy them signally in some stores they have a store locator on their website. You can also order the 4 pack variety packs.
I was shied away by the cost at first. Then I bought my powerade for $1.99 2 weeks ago when I was out and about and needed some fuel. I then realized that Nuun really is not all that expensive. 12 tablets come in 1 tube!! So that is 12 powerades for me lol and so it adds up to $24 for 4 tubes on their website, meaning one bottle of Nuun made only costs $.50 after I realized that I realized it actually would be more economical for me to buy Nuun and not my Powerade ;)
My favorite flavors were tri-berry and grape. I am ordering banana and strawberry lemonade next :)
Do you have a favorite flavor of Nuun?
