Nutrition Review: Lemon-Lime Nuun

Katie, my work wife, introduced me to Nuun while I was on my death bed at the office from one too many the night prior. All the greasy bacon in the world was not curing me of feeling like I was hit by several trucks and then thrown off a cliff. All you need to do is pop a tab into 16oz of water and watch it fizzle into a hydrating, electrolyte filled, drink of awesome. The effervescent tablet an light flavor is gentle on the stomach and comes in a variety of flavors. My personal favorite is Lemon-Lime. Nuun also makes a great caffeinated option!

Our bodies are made of about 70% water. Proper hydration is essential for basic body functions. Lack of hydration can lead to muscle cramps, fatigue, and make you slower. Nuun is great for runners and athletes. When you run, you sweat. As a kid I would always drink the yellow Gatorade after a game to recover. Sports drinks help replenish sodium that you sweat out during a game but you are also consuming all that added sugar which is terrible for you. Nuun replenishes your electrolytes and hydrates you without all the added sugar or carbs that you find in Gatorade.

In the words of Katie, HYDRATE OR DIE!!

What is your favorite way to hydrate before, after, and during a run?
