Nuun Review

My friend Sara asked if I would review some Nuun Hydration for my blog. I have been using Nuun for a few years now and always love to share the Nuun love. She asked me which flavors I would like to try and review. The only ones I had not tried were the new Nuun Energy, so she sent me one tube of the Lemon Lime Nuun Energy, one Tropical Active Hydration tube, and an Orange Nuun Active Hydration tube.

I don’t use Nuun while I am running. I mostly use it to get myself to drink water throughout the day as I am really bad at that! Here in the desert, it is very easy to get dehydrated, so staying on top of it as an athlete is very important. Is Nuun only for athletes? No way. Nuun is refreshing and has very few calories and no weird ingredients. I carry a tube with me in my purse wherever I go! So put down that Gatorade!!!

Oh and a little hint- If by chance you have had some wine or other adult beverages, Nuun is great to have before you go to bed and again in the morning when you wake up. So I have heard from a ‘friend’…of course.

Come on over for a Nuun party!

Here is some information about Nuun Active Hydration from the Nuun website:

Nuun Active Hydration is a line of electrolyte enhanced drink tablets designed to keep you optimally hydrated wherever your active lifestyle and athletic endeavors take you. You sweat, Nuun replenishes. Packed with electrolytes, light flavor, no sugars or carbs, and portable, Nuun Active Hydration is the perfect sports drink. The electrolytes found in Nuun will help alleviate cramps, help muscles function, communicate and burn energy efficiently.

My favorite flavors of Nuun Active Hydration include Watermelon, Fruit Punch, Strawberry Lemonade, and I love to mix a half tablet of Lemonade with a half tablet of the Lemon Tea flavor for a healthy Arnold Palmer.

I also enjoy the Nuun All Day Hydration. They have some great flavors, I love the Tangerine Lime!

Nuun All Day Hydration is an all-natural line of vitamin enhanced drink tablets formulated to help you stay hydrated throughout the day. Hydration plays an elemental role in staying healthy, energized and focused. Did you know dehydration is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue? Sugary and caffeinated drinks take you on a roller coaster ride during the day, but with zero sugar, under 8 calories per tab, and a blend of A, B, C, D, E vitamins, Nuun All Day keeps you going.

The Nuun U Natural Hydration line has some unique flavors, I enjoy the Lemon Chai!

Information from the Nuun site:

U Natural Hydration is an all-natural line of electrolyte and vitamin-enhanced drink tablets with half the sodium as Nuun Active Hydration. U Natural Hydration is sweetened with stevia and contains only 7 calories per tab. It is ideal for less intense activities, a perfect way to stay balanced and quenched.

And last but not least is the new Nuun Energy! I love drinking one before my afternoon runs. It gives me just enough of a jolt to get me out the door for my afternoon run without keeping me up all night as a cup of coffee would. It also hydrates me at the same time, so it is a win-win! I loved the tube that Sara sent me so much that I had my friends Allison and Derek purchase four of them for me at the 2014 Boston Marathon expo because you got a free water bottle for every 2 Nuun tubes purchased. I did this last year when I ran the Boston Marathon so I had to keep up the tradition!

For me, Nuun is a great way to stay hydrated in between my runs rather than reaching for juice or other sugary drinks. Give Nuun a try if you haven’t yet!

  1. I love Nuun! I’m not running right now and I still drink the heck out of it. Glad you were able to try the Energy line. SO GOOD. I’ll second what your “friend” said about drinking Nuun after a night of drinking… it really does help the next morning 🙂
