Nuun, A Hydration Beverage Favorite!

Christine and I discovered Nuun this spring after reading about it online and finding it at a race expo.  It seemed like a great alternative to Gatorade which was the electrolyte replacement drink we had used in the past.  Nuun Active Hydration Tablets are the ones we purchase. We love the large variety of flavors and also the option of caffeine with some of the flavors.  So far, our favorites include watermelon, strawberry lemonade and Kona cola with the overwhelming favorite being watermelon!  One of the best features of Nuun is the portability factor.  When we travel to California next week for our Dumbo Double Dare race weekend, we can tuck a tube into our suitcase and it gives us twelve 16 ounce servings.  Nuun contains no sugar so the product is only eight calories per sixteen ounce serving.  Compare that to the huge amount of calories in Gatorade and Powerade for the 16 ounces.  It also is great for hydrating while on an airplane.  Just ask your flight attendant to fill your water bottle after you pop a Nuun tablet into the container.  That's what we plan to do next week when we are on our flight to John Wayne Airport.


My pantry has plenty of my favorite flavors!


Nuun is sponsoring several women's teams for the Hood to Coast Relay this weekend.  The team of racers is listed here and you can follow along on numerous social media outlets.  We can't wait to see how this goes for our blogging friends.

Last but not least, we are going to have a surprise for several of our readers coming to Disneyland and it might just include some of our favorite hydration tablets. Stay tuned to be part of the fun!

  1. I recently discovered Nuun and am finding it a great means of hydration. Next week I will be flying to SNA for the DDD. My first trip to the west coast! I'm so excited to run at Disneyland. Maybe I'll get the chance to say hi.

    1. It's very easy to order online and they offer free shipping. Saves a trip to the store and prices are good online!

  4. For some reason I think I'm the only one that nuun doesn't agree with! I get horrible stomach cramps when running if I drink it. :(

    1. Wow, that's too bad Jenn. The Nuun really works well for both of us and we really like the no sugar added feature.

  5. I've been working on a post about Nuun vs Gatorade. I like them both. I find Gatorade to be a little more economical, so I tend to switch back and forth.

    1. Because we have not found Nuun offered on a race course, we still use other products very occasionally but prefer the Nuun.

  6. I used to be a huge Nuun drinker too! I've decided to stick with water and actually enjoy Mio fit more
