Happy Friday! It’s your lucky day because not only am I ging to discuss my love for Nuun, but you’ll have a chance to win a 6-pack variety pack!
Before I get started, I want to announce that Dani and I will be hosting a #WeRunSocial Meet Up next Saturday for the New York City Half Marathon! If you’re running this race, please stop by!
I’ve been using nuun for the past few years. After experimenting with other electrolyte drinks, I was so happy when I finally found nuun at my loval Fleet Feet running store. What I love about nuun are the natural ingredients and lack of sugar. I have a sensitive stomach so other sports drinks (I won’t call them out by name, but you know which ones I’m talking about) give me pretty bad stomach cramps if used during a run. The first time I used nuun i loved the taste and better yet, NO stomach issues!
So what exactly is nuun?
“nuun active hydration is an electrolyte enhanced drink tablet designed for an on-the-go lifestyle. packed with electrolytes, light flavor, and no sugars or carbs, nuun is the perfect sports drink for any of the activities you do. drop a nuun tablet into 16oz of water and you’re good to go.”
It’s so important to stay hydrated during runs and workouts. According to the nuun website, a 2% loss in body weight through sweat while exercising has been known to decrease exercise performance greatly. For long distance runners, especially for middle or back of the pack runners, this is very important. I’m not a “fast” runner, so I am easily be on my feet for over 2 hours for a half marathon. I need to make sure that I am hydrated throughout my entrie run. Also dehydration can cause cramping, headaches, nausea, and fatigue – ain’t nobody got time for that!!
There are four different varities of nuun:
nuun active – nuun active hydrates + replenishes. It is packed with electrolytes and using clean ingredients, nuun is the perfect sports drink for your active lifestyle. Comes in nine flavors.
nuun energy – nuun energy elevates your hydration when you need a lift. It has caffeine from green tea extract, b-vitamins, and electrolytes, nuun energy helps to maintain high levels of energy. Comes in four flavors.
nuun plus – when you push yourself, nuun plus fuels you faster. Just add to nuun active or energy to create an ultimate fast fueling and absorbing sports drink
nuun all day – you want to stay healthy—nuun all day revitalizes. It triggers the body’s natural reaction to drink more water by up to 90%. Comes in four flavors.
