These tablets are probably the only reason why I can get my 12-year-old daughter to do section hikes with me. The "taste" of some of the water was just too much for her, but the tablets return electrolytes to her body and mask any "taste."

As tasty as Nuun's Electrolyte Tablets are, it's always nice to be able to mix it up (pun intended). By that, we mean that we like to have a few flavors on hand to feel like we're sampling from a mixed species orchard. This Nuun Electrolyte Tablets Original Flavor Mixed 4 Pack contains their original four flavors -- and some of our favorites.Nuun's Electrolyte Tablets are designed to dissolve completely in one 16oz. bottle of water. This ratio gives an optimum hypotonic solution that's readily absorbed across the cell membrane to fight dehydration, but contains enough salts to restore and/or maintain the electrical function within the cells to combat hyponatremia. This is important for muscle cells, nerve cells, and red blood cells alike as they all perform vital functions when you exercise. Pure water is better than none at all, but without including salts as Nuun Tablets do, you can essentially leach the nutrients from the cells, impairing function. So for maximum performance, you must be properly hydrated, and Nuun's 700mg per liter sodium mix is exactly what you need when you're working hard.Nuun Electrolyte Tablets Original Flavor Mixed 4 Pack includes 4 tubes of 12 tablets each. There are four fruity flavors -- Lemon-Lime, Tri-Berry, Citrus Fruit, and Orange. One serving consists of one tablet dissolved in 16oz of water. There are less than 8 calories per serving as Nuun is formulated strictly for replacing the salts your body loses through sweating. Each serving contains 360mg of sodium, 100mg of Potassium, 12.5mg of calcium, and 25mg of magnesium. You'll also get 37.5mg of vitamin C and 500mcg of vitamin B2.
Nuun Active Hydration Tablets add to the most important characteristic of what you drink while you are active. The concentration of dissolved salts and sugars (osmolarity, for those more technically inclined) determines how fast the drink can cross from your gut into your bloodstream where it can re-hydrate and replenish. Nuun produces a hypotonic solution so that your body will absorb nuun faster than the leading "sports drinks" or even water alone. Your body is therefore, able to restore optimal water and electrolyte balance more quickly. To ensure rapid absorption, nuun contains no carbohydrates. please note: if you are participating in intense exercise for more than one hour you should also consume carbohydrates to ensure that you can sustain energy levels for working muscles. carbohydrate loaded sports bars, or gels are effective means of providing you with the energy you require.
