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."

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 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.

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. Contents in all Nunn Active Hydration Tablets: Sodium (carbonates) 360.0 Potassium (bicarbonate) 100.0 Calcium (carbonate) 12.5 Magnesium (sulfate) 25.0 Vitamin C 37.5 Vitamin B2 500mcg
