As a member of the “Pitch List” I was offered a chance to do a NUUN Tablets Review. They are Electrolyte Hydration Drink Tablets.
Nuun, pronounced “Noon,” was the first company to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates. Before Nuun, if you wanted electrolytes, the result was a bottle full of sugar. With our simple, self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tab, we revolutionized the sports drink forever.
Nuun was originally the brainchild of a student and professor from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. An avid cyclist, he longed for a lightweight, easy to use hydration method that didn’t include a sticky high-calorie mess. His research led to the creation of a sugarless, dissolvable, and portable tablet called Nuun.
Product details from the company:
You Sweat – Nuun Active Hydration Replenishes
Electrolyte enhanced drink tabs designed to keep you optimally hydrated wherever your active lifestyle takes you.
- 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.
- Nuun Active Hydration comes in 14 flavors: Banana, Orange, Lemon Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch, Kona Cola, Lemon Tea, Tri-Berry, Grape, Tropical, Citrus Fruit, Cherry Limeade, Watermelon, and Lemonade.
Nuun tablets differ from electrolyte drinks like Gatorade in several ways. They are packaged in a small, slim container. You drop the tablet into a container of 16 oz. of water. The tab fizzes and blends with the water, making it very easy for portable hydration. Each serving is about 50 cents, and is better for the environment because you can use a reusable container instead of multiple plastic bottles.
I received 3 flavors, Watermelon, Cherry Limeade and Lemonade. I was excited to see watermelon! LOL In fact Watermelon was the first tab I tried, I then tried the Cherry Limeade, and then the Lemonade. Remember Nuun tablets are made with NO sugar and because of that, I had a harder time enjoying drinking them. HOWEVER these do make a great drink and my daughter’s friend seemed to have really enjoyed the Lemonade one I had fixed in the fridge. lol Nuun tablets are especially great for anyone trying to keep their distance from sugar and of course anyone who is a diabetic will love these as well.
Nuun has 2 other product lines – the new All Day Hydration tabs are intended to flavor your water throughout the day to make it more enjoyable meeting your daily water requirements, and U Natural Hydration, which is naturally sweetened with stevia and is intended for less active times. I would definitely like to try these other 2 product lines. 🙂
Buy It: Available online at www.nuun.com ($24 for a 4-pack, yielding 48 drinks)
