Price Paid: $30 for 3 tubes (48 tablets total)

Summary

These electrolyte tablets are a great alternative to messy powders to bring along when hiking. They dissolve easily and even add a little fizz to your water. The flavors are all natural and delicious.

Pros

  • Yummy flavors
  • Dissolves easily
  • Add fizz to your water

Cons

  • Not enough flavor options in the all-natural variety
  • Tube of tablets could be considered heavy for backpacking

I purchased three tubes of these Nuun all-natural tablets on Amazon after reading about them on a blog. Previously I had been using electrolyte powders which inevitably you always end up opening the wrong way or spilling half of it on the ground.  Tablets are the perfect, non-messy solution!  

I purchased the Goji Berry Green Tea, Tangerine Ginger, and Lemon Chai. They are all delicious, but I would say that the Tangerine Ginger is my favorite since it has the most flavor. The flavors are not strong but definitely improve plain old water.  

Living in Florida, I do a lot of hiking in intense heat and keeping your electrolytes up is important. I will definitely continue to buy these in the future.

Carry along Nuun U Natural Hydration Pack for some all-natural hydration when you head out to get active. Each Nuun tablet contains the electrolytes you need to keep going; just drop it into 16oz of water to help to accelerate water absorption and replenish what you lose through sweating.

According to studies, most Americans are chronically dehydrated, make sure you're not one of them with U Natural Hydration Drink Tabs from Nuun, makers of the popular sports recovery/hydration tab. U tablets are packed with essential vitamins, contain less than 7 calories per serving, and are lower in sodium so that you don't have to be working out to enjoy a hydrating drink.

The U Natural Hydration Tablets - 1 Tube is the all natural hydration drink from the makers of Nuun. It has less electrolytes than nuun and comes with a healthy supply of vitamins. So, we use U daily whenever we are not training (and don't need the full electrolyte profile of nuun) but are still looking for a refreshing drink that is all natural and low in calories. The flavors are also very cool and light. As with nuun, U comes in effervescent tablets that dissolve in water and come in a convenient water proof container. Give U a try, it's a healthy alternative to all those ubiquitous calorie rich drinks out on the market ... and you'll do your part not to add more bottles to the landfills.

NUUN U hydration tablets restore nutrients that your active life takes away with a balanced mix of electrolytes and a full array of vitamins-just add water to create a low-calorie sports drink!

NUUN doesn't contain sugars, so there's no need to worry about the extra calories usually found in sport drinks. Tablets are stored in 4 x 1.25 in. plastic tube that easily fits into a backpack or jacket pocket. *Discount will be applied when you check out; offer not valid for sale-price items ending in $._3 or $._9.
