Today I want to talk about a product that I have been using for a while. It is Nuun (as you can tell by the picture I am sure). Now in the spirit of full disclosure, I am a Brand Ambassador for Nuun. They do not pay me, though I can get a little bit of a discount on items I order. With that disclaimer, here is my review of Nuun (which I would have the same opinion either way in all honesty).
For those who don’t know what Nuun is, it is a hydration product similar to a Gatorade or Powerade type product. Now I, like most people have always liked Gatorade, and more recently Powerade Zero. I liked Gatorade, but I did not like the calories that it contains. There are lower calorie version now, but still more calories than I would like to drink. Powerade Zero was great in that it was Zero calories. I could drink as much as I wanted and not worry about my calories, but it is lacking some nutritional value in what I needed by being zero calorie. Nuun is 7 calories per tab. You mix one tab with 16 ounces of water to make your drink as needed. Now I actually mix it with about 20 ounces of water to make it go a little further and it still tastes great. The tab fizzes away within a couple minutes and you are left with a slightly carbonated drink.
There are 3 different offerings from Nuun. Active, Energy, and All Day. The energy version has a bit of caffeine in it for those situations when you need caffeine. Active is the recovery formula I use the most during and after exercise, and the All Day version is meant to be more of just a water flavoring to allow you to drink more water.
I have tried several different flavors and haven’t really found one I do not like, but my favorites are Kona Cola (Energy), and the Lemon-Lime (Active) flavor.
I highly recommend giving Nuun a try! It is refreshing and I find that it really does work. I drink more water and recover easier, especially from hard workouts if I drink Nuun during and after.
