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.
The American College of Sports Medicine recommends that people who are active for more than one hour get 500to 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 700to 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.
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. Under 8 calories ; 360 mg sodium (carbonates), 100 mg potassium (bicarbonate), 12.5 mg calcium (carbonate), 25 mg magnesium, 37.5 mg vitamin C, 500 mcg vitamin B2.

Q: Will Nuun Eliminate Cramps?
A: Not only are cramps painful enough to stop you in your tracks, they're also completely involuntary. Good news is, yes, Nuun can help alleviate cramps by keeping you hydrated better than water alone. Each sip gives you a consistent mix of water and electrolytes to ensure you stay properly hydrated and cramp-free.
Q: What's In Nuun?
- Four essential electrolytes: sodium potassium, magnesium and calcium.
- A nice light refreshing flavor that's not over powering when you're on the go.
- A bit of fizzy stuff to ensure it dissolves quickly without having to mix or shake, which disappears once the Nuun tab is completely dissolved.
- A smidgen of color in the form of riboflavin (vitamin B2) & beet juice depending on the flavor.
- And of course a dash of love.
Q: What's Not In Nuun?
A: No sugar, because athletes do no want to have upset stomachs or overwhelm taste buds, and to give you more control over your calorie intake.
No artificial colors because neon green isn't necessary for proper hydration.
Q: Why No Carbs?
A: A one size fits all mentality doesn't work in active lives. It is better to focus on keeping you hydrated and let you decide where your carbs come from. Whether it's gels, bars or other nutrition sources, you choose what's best for you.
Q: Can I Mix Nuun With Other Drinks?
A: Nuun is designed with a balanced ratio of water to electrolytes for optimal hydration. If you find mixing Nuun with other hydration products works for you, fantastic.
Q: How Many Servings Are In Nuun?
A: The sturdy lightweight tube is good for 1.5 gallons of electrolyte hydration. There are 12 Nuun tabs per tube. Each Nuun tab makes 16ozs and can easily be broken in half for 8oz mixes.
Q: Is Nuun Gluten-Free?
A: Yes, both Nuun and U Natural Hydration are gluten-free so it's safe for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Drink up, friends.
Q: Is Nuun Vegetarian?
A: Nuun and U Natural Hydration contain no animal derived raw materials. They are enjoyed by vegetarians, omnivores and carnivores alike.
Q: Does Nuun Contain Corn?
A: Nuun and U Hydration have no corn in them, but as some of the ingredients are processed from corn as starting material, Nuun cannot guarantee it is 'corn free' for those of you with corn allergies.
Q: What Are Electrolytes?
A: As you might guess from their name, electrolytes are electrically charged, which means that they can conduct electrical impulses. The body needs electrical impulses to make muscle cells contract. The foods we eat and fluids we drink contain mineral salts, which form electrolytes when they dissolve in the fluids in our bodies. The body has to perform a delicate balancing act to keep water and electrolyte levels just right.
For example, whenever sodium levels dip too low, the kidneys are stimulated to produce more urine, which restores the balance by lowering the amount of water in the blood. And when the sodium level gets too high, thirst develops, stimulating the person to drink. A hormone is also secreted by the brain in response to thirst that causes the kidneys to produce less urine. Together, these effects result in dilution of the sodium and the restoration of balance.
Q: Is Nuun Carbonated?
A: A burping athlete is not a good thing, so no, Nuun is not carbonated. When first dropped into water Nuun fizzes to dissolve, but once it's finished dissolving it will very quickly become still.
Q: Can I Eat Nuun?
A: Nuun was designed to be mixed with water, but heard of some people eating it anyways. Whether as an experiment or to get your electrolytes in a hurry, it isn't the most pleasant experience, but it won't hurt you.
Q:How Many Calories Are In A Nuun?
Q: Can My Kids Drink Nuun?
A: Sure, Nuun's great for hydrating and it's a great way to get kids to drink more water (instead of sugary sodas!).
Q: What About Nuun For A Hangover?
A: We all like to party from time to time. Too much celebrating can lead to dehydration, and since Nuun hydrates more quickly than water alone. Take two Nuuns.
