Nuun GIVEAWAY

When the folks at Nuun reach out to you about trying their new electrolyte drink, you say "yes please" and then thank them graciously when the package arrives.

PS I received a ton of comments on my Instagram when I posted this picture about
the pineapple. Nuun did not send it. The hubby actually picked it up as a souvenir
from his trip to Bali last year. 


Now, I've gotta be honest with you - I am a HUGE water lover. I could (and often do) drink the stuff morning, noon and night (which can lead to frequent bathroom breaks - oops) and never get sick or bored of it. With that being said, I am well aware that often times one needs to replenish the body with more than just water.

Seeing as I have a deep affinity for water, I've never really searched out an alternative hydration plan. Most of the time I just reach for old fashion agua or whatever (low calorie) sports drink was on sale that week at the grocery store. I've gotta say, Nuun takes some getting used to (at least for me). It isn't like BAM full-of-flavor like some of the other sports drinks on the market AND it's carbonated, but having a clean way to replenish your body with electrolytes is AWESOME!

I know some of you are already Nuun lovers, while others of you may have never tried it before. Whichever category you fall in to, let me tell you, do I have some news for you?! Nuun is releasing a NEW product (okay, maybe not a completely new product, but a tried and true product that has been updated to a new and improved formula!)!

Source

New Nuun Active has the same optimal electrolytes, but now has a better absorption rate and with plant-based, natural ingredients. It is also certified gluten free, certified vegan, and certified for clean sport through Informed Choice.


One of the biggest differences between the current and new formula is the switch to plant-based sweeteners (monk fruit and stevia leaf extracts instead of acesulfame potassium) and to natural ingredients. New Nuun is also certified vegan (previously only some of the flavors were vegan). They've added 1g of non-GMO dextrose, which means calories are slightly higher than the current Nuun, but it improves the absorption rate and is still low overall (12 calories per 16oz). New Nuun is currently available at a few retailers including Whole Foods (ha, I bet some of you Nuun-aholics didn't even notice, did ya?!), but will be available more widely in early February when it will be available at Nuun.com (at that point all retail locations will make the switch to the updated formula).

Sara Lim said...

I currently hydrate post run with Nuun Kona Cola but would love to try new flavors!

I usually just hydrate with water, if I am feeling like I need more I just pick up something from the convenience store, like a Gatorade

Letty Uribe said...

Nuun always!!

I like the energy I get using nuun post workout over water.

Margaret said...

Typically Skratch - never tried Nuun, but I've heard good things!

Lauren said...

I love Nuun! It's hard to pick a favorite - probably cherry limeade!

Sarah N. said...

I usually stick to plain water but after an especially long run or hot summer run I'll add an electrolyte replacement. I've tried GU electrolyte tabs and SOS. I would love to try Nuun.

Katelyn Carless said...

I gave Nuun another try yesterday after a long run & it was a successful try!

Never heard of this until recently. Looks yummy. Worth a shot!

GVtexas said...

I hydrate with NUUN of course!!! I love the cherry limeade flavor!

Lately I've just been hydrating with water, but I used to drink Nuun on group runs. It was perfect during the hot, humid summers!

Michelle Richardson said...

I've always loved Nuun! Great products, thanks for your review!

Kristine Lewis said...

I just recently tried Nuun for the first time and now I'm hooked! I learned to drink it post run though because the small amount of carbonation makes me burp lots. Excited the new active favors are certified vegan as I've switched to a vegan lifestyle, also excited to try some more flavor a!

Steph said...

Nuun electrolyte tablets have been my go to for hydrating before, during, and after workouts since I discovered Nuun during a varsity track and field camp in Arizona. Lime is my favourite. Perfect for a hot day.

Misti said...

I LOVE NUUN . Daily thing for this girl

Katie Wadley said...

I trained for my first marathon last year and am beginning to train again! I love nuun because it has no sugar or carbs but it replenishes all the electrolytes I sweat out and I sweat A LOT. I'm so in love with nuun tropical tabs!

Jo said...

I use Nuun! I love the Active flavors for during a long run, and the Energy flavors for before!

Jen Rawson said...

I'm like you, plain old water is good enough for me. I hate super sweet things which is why I love nuun. The flavour is subtle and not too sweet which is perfect!

kellykmurphy4 said...

I love nuun. I drink a lot of water and occasionally like to mix it up so I drink Nuun All Day! I would love to try the Active flavors.

anna said...

I usually use Nuun - pink lemonade is my favorite! Somehow on hot summer rides I'm always craving lemonade, and Nuun gives me a way to enjoy it with out all the sugar.

Sadie said...

I like to use the lemon lime Nuun after a long run.

Karen (The Celiathlete) said...

I have always and will always be a fan of water. And the moment I found nuun, my water just got better. I drink it all the time. It's nice to mix it up some and have some flavor in there every now and again. Especially without any added sugars. I'm a nuun girl for life.

Ange @ Cowgirl Runs said...

I looooove NUUN. I have it at my desk and at home for hydration throughout the day and after a workout.

Una said...

I don't Nuun during my workouts but I always have 20 oz afterwards to get my electrolytes where they need to be. I love a fizzy post-workout drink :D

Lindsay W said...

I love Nuun! It is a great product to sip on daily when I need a little oomph in my water or to drink the day after a long run to replenish.

Run Cheer Run said...

I currently hydrate with water & juice. Still looking to perfect my hydration and nutrition before and after runs.

Unknown said...

Nuun is the go to with a protein shake and compression gear

Knoxie13 said...

I love nuun anytime, but especially after a full day of activity when I wasn't able to hydrate as much as necessary. So excited to try the new formula and that they have moved to a cleaner formula

Babydoll said...

I usually drink water after exercise but struggle with drinking enough throughout the day. I love nuun for that reason...yummy no-guilt excuse for staying hydrated!

Currently just water!

diane said...

Tara said...

Love Nuun! It's my go-to for hyrdration.

Jamie Theriault said...

I currently use glacier cherry (the white bottle) Gatorade - not the best chemical wise and sugar wise, but I know it works with my fickle stomach.

Rachel said...

Nuun, of course! My favorites are citrus and strawberry lemonade.

paul said...

I buy Nuun by the case

Lindsay Khan said...

I LOVE Nuun! Only way I hydrate!

Annette said...

Have always been tempted to try Nuun, it's awesome to see an honest review!

Alison Davidson said...

I often forget to drink enough after a workout, but I try and drink a glass of either Nuun or Gu Brew and a glass of water because I don't really drink while I'm running.

Kim Smelser said...

NUUN! Yes! Watermelon... is my fave!

Heidi said...

Water is usually my choice and coconut water.

James Murdoch said...

I've tried Nuun once at a fitness expo and it was pretty good.

Jen said...

I love using Nuun to replenish after a workout! Tastes great and I know it's much better for me than most other sports drinks. Plus it's portable! I keep a tube on my desk at work in case I need something more than water

DisRunnerK said...

Love using Nuun to hydrate - grape is my favorite!

Shelby Giancaspro said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEE using Nuun to hydrate before, during, and after my workouts. Especially watermelon ;)

Taryn said...

I tried Nuun for the first time in December and while I LOVE it, I didn't use it for marathon training because I read that it didn't have any carbs or sugar, which you need on marathon training runs, in my opinion.

I use Nuun for hydrating in general. It jazzes up boring water and I actually feel better afterwards. I like using it before and after runs, but Gatorade or other sports drinks during.

I've tried Strawberry Lemonade and Tropical Punch, the punch is my favorite so far :)

Nynke said...

I love using Nuun before and after my workouts to get my hydration on - Strawberry Lemonade is one of my favorites!

Adrienna said...

I drink a lot of Nuun so I'm curious to see what difference I notice with the formula switch. I'm guessing it won't bother me :)

newsie15 said...

I actually drink Nuun! I didn't realize that some of the flavors weren't vegan.

Heidi MacInnis said...

I am totally a Nuun girl. Finally tried my Nuun plus during my half yesterday.

I'm a nuun addict! I'm not a big water fan, but nuun tabs really help me stay hydrated all day!!

Anonymous said...

I usually hydrate with water or Gatorade, but I've heard amazing things about Nuun and am willing to give it a try.

Benton said...

Nuun is the greatest! I love this stuff, I find empty tubes of it stashed everywhere from my car to my gym bag.

Stephanie Abdon said...

you know those memes that have been going around...there should be one that says "steph doesn't hydrate. don't be like steph."

my boyfriend is always on me since I now live in the desert and, after he recovered from a stomach virus much faster than I did, he is giving me a hard time that it's because he fuels better. he's right. be like tim :)

Rebecca Chervin said...

I love Nuun! I'm guilty of never drinking enough water, so adding these tablets helps!

Elizabeth Garcia said...

I used to only drink water before, during, and after my runs. Until I discovered Nuun! I am not a huge fan of Gatorade or Powerade because of the calories so Nuun is a perfect happy balance! Love the Nuun energy (tri berry flavor)!!!

Kristine said...

I also am a water lover and drink it all day long, but I discovered Nuun last year and love it after a long run. I think it helps me feel less dehydrated sooner when I'm naughty and forget to carry water with me!

Andrea Swingley said...

Chocolate milk post-run but grape nuun during. Can't wait to try the new formulas!

Jamie Lockhart said...

I'm already a huge fan of Nuun! I have at least five tubes at home right now and enjoy before, during and after my workouts.

Nuun is the only way I hydrate after a run! Love my Nuun! Pre workout in the morning I like Nuun Boost.

Unknown said...

I drink Nuun or Vega, love them!! But I would love to try the new plant based formula, so much healthier overall. Might be switching to just Nuun for good :)
