More Than A Thirst Quench: Nuun Active Hydration Review
Updated: Aug 3
With Nuun hydration tablets now offered in several different varieties, the popular and refreshingly delicious electrolyte-enhanced tabs do more than just replenish essential vitamins and minerals lost during exercise. Here's my take on the Nuun tablets in a Nuun active hydration review that covers what you need to know about Nuun Hydration.
Nuun Hydration Review
In typical Maddie-fashion, I'm going to start this article with a relatively dramatic statement: Nuun hydration is life-changing!
If we simply consider how much more liquid Nuun has helped me consume daily- without even touching on the added nutrition benefits- it's really not that insane for me to say that Nuun has somewhat changed my life.
Hydration is one of the most important things for living healthy and being our best selves- and this does not just apply to athletes!
But let's face it, the taste of regular water gets a little boring and sometimes it's hard to convince yourself to drink more. So we turn to drinks that actually do taste good.
But unfortunately, those are probably full of added sugars.
Anyways. Did you know that as great as regular water is for you, there is more to hydration than drinking regular water?
What Nuun Hydration Does: A Review of the Nuun Tablets
Nuun hydration tablets are dissolving, fizzy electrolyte-packed tabs that you put directly into your water. Essentially, you can transform any old cup of water into a sparkling beverage that improves your hydration with clean ingredients and fun flavors.
Not all Nuun flavors taste amazing, but they certainly break up the monotony of regular H20 and make consuming vitamins and electrolytes a breeze. And there are more than enough flavors available so we all can find plenty to love.
I love Nuun for many reasons, including how the company makes a commitment to Clean Hydration. I can feel comfortable dropping the flavorful, fizzy goodness into my water bottle.
The Nuun ingredients depend on which variety you're using: the most popular Nuun Sport, the more specific Nuun Immunity, or another offshoot from the company's extensive line.
That's the gist of Nuun hydration, but to make this the best Nuun active hydration review, I'm going to answer more questions. Are Nuun tablets worth it? How many Nuun tablets per day?
Each variety has its own purpose, so let's check them all out.
Nuun Hydration Sport is a hydrating mix of electrolytes, minerals, and caffeine (if you choose the Nuun Sport with caffeine) that is perfect for bringing along on workouts or for drinking before/after you get your sweat on. The tablet has sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, giving you a full dose of electrolytes.
Not all sport hydration tabs do this, but it's important to have a balance of each vitamin.
The Nuun Sport tablets are formulated perfectly to provide the body with the necessary amounts of vitamins and carbs to replenish after a sweaty workout. That's why I love them and am comfortable having a few tablets each day. I work out a lot, so I know that I need to replenish a lot.
I'm not a nutritionist, so you should talk to yours about your Nuun intake based on the number of vitamins in Nuun sport, what your body specifically needs, and how much you sweat.
Next up: my Nuun immunity tablets review! To be honest, Nuun Immunity might very well be my favorite part of the Nuun line. It is truly the perfect little pick me up when you feel like you might be getting sick.
It is my go-to when I start to feel the sniffles. I especially love having this variety when I travel. I mean, dirty airports, funky sleep patterns, you know how stress-inducing travel can be. When you add an athletic competition into the mix, hydration and immune care are even more important.
I love popping the best Nuun Immunity flavor tab, Blueberry Tangerine, into my water during travel or on extra stressful weeks. This might actually be my favorite flavor in the whole line.
This little tab is boosted with both Zinc and Vitamin C to help your immune system. The brand also claims that this tab includes an "herbal blend" that supports your immune system. Elderberry, turmeric, and gin
