#Nuuntrition Twitter Chat

We recently hosted a Twitter chat with our nutrition specialist. In case you missed it, here are some of our most frequently asked questions!

How do Nuun tablets differ from a powder?
Our tablets are effervescent, which aids in nutrient absorption. It’s an added bonus that it’s fun to watch.

Can I take in too many electrolytes if I drink Nuun on my days off? In particular, I’m worried about sodium.
Too much sodium can have negative long-term effects, so we recommend limiting yourself to 2 tablets on your off days. If you find you need help staying hydrated, you can break them in half to make four drinks. You can also try Nuun All Day, which is lower in sodium.

What is the difference between Nuun All Day and U Natural Hydration? Which would you recommend for the average person with a desk job that attends yoga?
Nuun All Day contains fat-soluble vitamins, and U Natural doesn’t. U Natural has more electrolytes to help you stay hydrated during yoga, however if you’re attending hot yoga, you’d want to use Nuun Active.

What are the keys to Nuun working as it does?
The complete electrolyte profile keeps you hydrated, the light crisp taste promotes water consumption, and low carbohydrate levels help prevent the onset of GI issues.

Is it hard to find the right ingredients and combine them to come up with new flavors?
Yes, but mostly because we have high standards to ensure our products taste good!

My puppies love drinking Nuun out of my bottles. Is it safe for them?
Absolutely! They can drink Nuun, but not in the same quantities as you. We recommend consulting your vet to determine the appropriate amount.

Nuun Active vs. Nuun All Day

Nuun_Product_Family-M

At Nuun, we make a range of products that all support your daily hydration needs. They are designed to help you consume more fluids throughout the day, without worrying about an excessive consumption of added sugars or calories. Our top two selling products, Nuun Active hydration and Nuun All Day, both are available in the same convenient, effervescent tablet, but they serve different functions.

 

Nuun Active Contains:

+ An optimal electrolyte profile (Na, K, Mg, Ca)

+ No added sugars

+ Electrolyte levels consistent with average sweat losses

It should be used while exercising

Nuun All Day Contains:

+ 17 vitamins & minerals

+ No added sugars

+ Nutrients for immune & bone health

It should be used for daily hydration

The main difference between Nuun Active and All Day, is how they are used. When you’re working out, you want to replenish what you lose (via sweat) to maintain performance. Nuun Active helps by providing a balanced blend of sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium to help retain fluid, and maintain proper muscle function.

Nuun All Day, contains a blend of vitamins and minerals that can be used as a daily hydration aid. A recommended four servings per day of Nuun all day can help you meet you daily hydration needs, which has many benefits. The grazing effect you get out of consuming All Day, will help give your body the right amount of nutrients helping you stay energized throughout the day. Both products come in aneffervescent tablet, which ensures precise dosing, and a convenient form factor.

Try one of ten Nuun Active flavors during your next workout. Or better yet, pick up some All Day to keep your hydration levels in check while you’re sitting at the office!
