Dehydration happens for lots of reasons. Most people don't recognize that and only drink when they feel thirsty. Now you can One Up Your Water with Nuun, an electrolyte enhanced drink tablet formulated to dissolve in water and designed to keep you optimally hydrated wherever you are. Nuun's special formulation of electrolytes helps increase the amount of water that's absorbed into the blood stream. That means more of the water you drink is actually used to hydrate you instead of being eliminated because the electrolyte balance wasn't right. Nuun is not energy—it's designed just for hydration!

Nuun's formulation is based on years of research and feedback from some of the world's top academic and practicing experts in the field of sports medicine-specifically in dehydration and hyponatremia. Nuun's development is focused on the three most important aspects of proper hydration:

Speed of Absorption
One of the most important characteristics of what you drink while you're active is the speed at which your body can absorb it. The concentration of dissolved salts and sugars (osmolarity, for those more technically inclined) determines how fast the drink can cross from your digestive track into your bloodstream, where it can re-hydrate and replenish you. Nuun produces a hypotonic solution, so your body absorbs Nuun faster than the leading "sports drinks" or even water alone. This gives your body the ability to restore optimal water and electrolyte balance quickly and efficiently.

Electrolyte Content
The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that people who are active for more than one hour get 500-700mg of sodium for every liter of water they consume. This is up to three times the sodium amount that traditional "sports drinks" provide. Some experts in the field believe that sodium concentrations should be closer to the 700-1000mg range. In addition to other critical electrolytes, Nuun provides 700mg of sodium for every liter of drink to ensure that you are adequately replenishing your body to help you perform at your best and stay healthy.

Carbohydrate Content
Nuun contains no carbohydrates for a couple of reasons. The first being speed of absorption. Ingesting drinks containing high levels of carbohydrates can slow the rate at which your stomach empties, delaying the absorbance of the water and electrolytes. Carbs also increase the osmolality of what you're drinking, delaying absorption beyond the stomach. But we know some people simply want to avoid unnecessary carbs, and it doesn't make sense to consume sports drinks loaded with them. Now, if you're participating in intense exercises lasting more than 60 to 90 minutes, you should consume carbohydrates to ensure energy levels for working muscles. But how you do that is up to you. Everyone manages energy consumption differently, whether it's with sports bars, gel or other sources of calories and carbohydrates.

Nuun Electrolyte Tablets contain no gluten or animal derived raw materials.

          I was going to our martial art bootcamp which consist of 8 training sessions in 2 days. I really needed a great electrolyte drink mix between each session so prevent me from being dehydrated and sick. This product fits the objective perfectly. It is a tablet that you just put in a water bottle (16 oz), put it into fridge and drink it when I return to my base between trainings. It is much better option than you bringing dozens of getoride bottles. Light, simple and delicious (I got citrus fruit and lemonade flavors). Will buy this again for sure.

              Comments about Nuun Active 12 Tablets Tube:

              I use NUUN for rehydration while running on hot days. I love the light flavor it adds to my water, and I can definitely tell a difference in my body's response vs. using plain water. I don't care for the fizziness when it is first added, but that dissipates quickly. My favorite flavors so far are strawberry lemonade and lemon lime, but am excited to try out the lemon tea with the caffeine kick.
              A side note to those who are use to sugary rehydration drinks (like Gatorade or PowerAde) - this will taste very bland at first, I even equated one flavor to initially tasting like flat beer, but over time I have gotten use to the lighter, less sweet flavors and now think those other sports drinks taste too sweet. Don't give in after one tablet...keep trying them and try new flavors.

                Comments about Nuun Active 12 Tablets Tube:

                Nuun (especially watermelon; seriously that's the best tasting flavor) really makes a difference on how I feel during a run, especially when it's hot outside. I like how it is essentially calorie-free (as a small woman I don't like wasting calories on beverages!) yet it gives some needed electrolytes during sweaty workouts. The flavor is very subtle, and the taste not very sweet (if you're looking for typical sports drink sweetness, you're going to be disappointed). I've tried most of the flavors, and really so far I've only been disappointed with Fruit Punch. The only annoying thing about them is waiting for the fizzing to stop when you drop them in water... if you don't, once you start running (and shaking up the bottle) you can end up with a shaken pop can situation when you open it. One solution I've found is to prepare it the night before, then I'm ready to go for my run and no worries about excess bubbles.
