Nuun's (pronounced "noon") growing popularity is thanks to its great taste and convenience. The 4 tube Original Mixed pack contains one tube each of Nuun's original flavors - tri-berry, lemon + lime, citrus fruit and orange while the Mixed contains one tube each of tropical, strawberry lemonade, grape and fruit punch.
4 tubes of 12 tablets each equates to 48 total servings.
Staying hydrated can be a real challenge for anyone especially athletes. Nuun tables make rehydration simple and easy. Nuun tablets provide essential electrolytes, no sugars, are under 6 calories. Nuun tubes are easy to carry and super portable. Just drop a tablet in 16 ounces of water, wait two minutes then drink and enjoy. Nuun tables are scored so they can easily be broken in half for a 8 ounce serving. We have also heard Nuun is a good remedy for a hangover!
Nuun's formulation is based upon research and feedback from some of the world's top academic and practicing experts in the field of sports medicine (specifically in dehydration and hyponatremia). Development focused on the three most important aspects for proper hydration: speed of absorption, electrolyte content, and carbohydrate content. Drinking Nuun will hydrate you better than water alone because with each sip, you're drinking a consistently balanced ratio of water to electrolytes, which will ensure that your electrolyte ratios are always optimal. It's used by cyclists, triathletes, runners, hikers, fitness class enthusiasts and travelers around the world.
These work especially well for endurance type rides where you must refill your water bottles one or more times. They are very compact so that a whole day's supply of electrolytes store easily in your jersey pocket or saddle/bento bag. The taste is very light (like lightly flavored seltzer water) which goes down very easily even after 6 hours in the saddle. Obviously you will need a alternate carb source in conjunction with these comapred to some other sports drinks.
Pros: High electrolyte dosage for compact size
Cons: A bit pricer compared to similar options
