Giveaway & Review: Nuun Electrolyte Replacement Hydration Drink Tabs {Running}

Blog Giveaway & Review FTC Disclosure

A challenging part of running in Florida during the hot and muggy summer is staying hydrated. I chug a lot of water, but since you sweat out so much during running, my doctor encouraged me to have some type of electrolyte replacement during and/or afterwards my training sessions. I’d been hearing a lot in the running world about Nuun, who makes electrolyte enhanced drink tabs, and they agreed to send me some for review.

Product details from the company:

  • 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 11 flavors: Banana, Orange, Lemon Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Fruit Punch, Kona Cola, Lemon Tea, Tri-Berry, Grape, Tropical, and Citrus Fruit.

  • My thoughts: Nuun differs from electrolyte drinks like Gatorade in several ways. They are packaged as tabs that come in a small, slim container, which you drop in 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, so it’s cheaper than buying pre-packaged individual drinks, and better for the environment because you use a reusable container instead of multiple plastic bottles that get thrown away.

    You can easily fit a whole container of these in a Spi-Belt, water bottle’s zippered compartment, pocket, etc. so you can take it with you for long runs or bike rides. They also give you electrolytes without the sugar and carbs, and aren’t as sugary sweet.

    I was sent the Strawberry Lemonade flavor, and my husband and I both tried these over the last month. It was a refreshing post-race drink for us after our 4th of July 5k, and my husband said he liked these better than another brand of electrolyte tabs he’d previously purchased. As a bonus, Nuun is donating 50 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for each tube of Strawberry Lemonade sold through Dec. 2013.

    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 purchase Nuun again and can’t wait to try some of their other flavors.

    Buy It: Available online at ($24 for a 4-pack, yielding 48 drinks)

    Win It: Giveaway is now closed.
