It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Nuun. I’m either hydrating on the run with Lemon Lime, recovering from a cocktail-filled night out with Citrus Fruit, or mixing up an adult Arnold Palmer with Lemonade and Sweet Tea Vodka.
When I first started running, I went with a few of the various –ades on the market. They worked okay for my shorter runs, but once the mileage increased my stomach rebelled against the sugar-laden sports drinks. I think back now on the powdered drink packets I’d stuff in the pouch of my Nathan handheld to refill my bottle with. What a pain in the ass! My friend Tricia introduced me to Nuun a couple years ago while out on a run together and I’ve been through eleventy billion tubes since.
Not familiar with Nuun? Let’s break it down! Each super-portable tablet is jam-packed with the electrolytes you need without the sugar you don’t, for only eight calories per serving. They have three different products:
- Nuun Active Hydration is specifically for high intensity workouts and/or to satisfy your electrolyte replenishment needs
- U Natural Hydration is all-natural and contains less electrolytes than Active formula
- Nuun All Day Hydration makes staying hydrated during the day much easier and will help add more water to your day
My favorites are all in the Active category: Watermelon (seasonal, so stock up now!), Lemon Tea, and Strawberry Lemonade. Currently my secret weapon for surviving the 3pm slump at the office is mixing 1/2 tab of Kona Cola and 1/2 tab of Cherry Limeade. Just perfect!
