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.
Here's what other sites are saying:
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.
