Nuun Turns water into a refreshing sports hydration drink without sugar
Nuun, pronounced ‘NOON’ is a great way to stay hydrated. I was sent these lovely flavours to try. Strawberry Lemonade, Tri-Berry & Lemonade. I decided I would test these out whilst I was training for a 10k London River Rat Race that took place on 16th August, it really came in handle whilst pounding those pavements and gearing my body up for a beating.
During my training the weather at the time was pretty hot, so these nuun tablets were brilliant, it gave me just the right amount of hydration to see me though and I didn't feel depleted. If you’re not a great fan of drinking water they are perfect for flavouring when you’re not training too. I’d even have a bottle on my desk at work to encourage me to drink more which I often find hard to maintain with just plain water.
Each tube of nuun contains 12 tables. Each tablet makes 500ml of nuun, No sugar. No high-fructose corn syrup. No artificial flavours or colors. Although this product is sugar free it does have sorbitol in the ingredients (sorbitol is an artificial sweetener) so I wouldn’t recommend taking this if you are health conscious and living a clean eating lifestyle.
Pleasant, fruity and not too sweet, I did find they had a slight bitter taste but that didn't bother me too much after awhile. As well as being "sugar free", Nuun are carb and calorie free (with less than 8 calories)
“ alot of people don’t realise that when exercising for fitness / weight loss whilst drinking other hydration sports drinks they are taking on calories, which is negating the benefit of the exercise”
The good thing about electrolyte is that they assist with balance and absorption.
“ Whilst other brands are introducing more and more products into the market we stick to what we believe is important – replacing electrolytes and staying hydrated when you exercise”
