Summary

It returns electrolytes to the body. It comes in a variety of flavors that can address the taste of certain water purifiers or the water source.

Pros

  • Electrolytes
  • Masks any "taste" of the water

Cons

  • One more piece of trash that you need to haul out

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."

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

nuun is refreshing portable electrolyte hydration in real words? imagine being out on a long run or ride, or being in the gym. rather than settle for water or buy a sugary drink from a convenience store, you just fill up your water bottle and drop in a couple of nuun tabs. by the time you've tied your laces or put on your pack, you've got a complex electrolyte drink that recharges your salts, but is refreshing and more efficiently absorbed than water alone or most sports drinks on the market. said simply nuun was designed, formulated and tested to keep you optimally hydrated, wherever you are. nuun is: portable nuun comes in a tough tube that is water resistant and perfect for carrying in your hand, bike jersey, packwherever. 1 tube = 6 litres (~1.5 gallons) -enough for a good ride or a week at the gym. and if you travel, forget trying to find your normal drink or suffering the indignity of bags of powder bursting in your luggage, a couple of tubes in your bags will get there in one piece and get you through the week of training in colorado or the pyrenees. balanced we spent years researching the levels of electrolytes needed for the product to be absorbed the quickest and to provide optimal salt balance to prevent cramping and maximise hydration. an editor of a major triathlon publication used nuun and had no cramping issues for the first time ever in an ironman. refreshing designed for the active palate, nuun 's got a light flavour that's not overwhelming when you're on the go. if you've ever watered down sports drinks because they're too strong, then you've made them less easy to absorb; this ultimately defeats the purpose of using them. some call the nuun taste 'tart' and that's probably the best description we've found yet, other than 'just right'! simple a bottle of water, 1 nuun per 500ml (~16oz) doesn't matter where you are, how windy it is, how much space you've got - drop in nuun and you're good to go.
