#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?

If you find you need help staying hydrated, you can break them in half to...

Q & A with Nuun Ambassador, Katie

1.) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into skiing. I was born and raised in a tiny town called Carrabassett Valley, Maine.  This small town is the home to Sugarloaf Ski Area which has a long legacy of being the training ground for winter sports athletes. It also boasts one of the best ski academies in the country.

It was just kind of the natural progression if you were...

5 Tips for Winter Hydration

Winter is coming. No, we aren’t talking about the Game of Thrones return. We are talking about the need to focus on hydration during these upcoming cooler months. (It’s more our specialty.) As fall quickly becomes winter, we often hear people say that they don’t feel thirsty or don’t have the desire to drink as much water when temperatures drop. There’s a reason for feeling this way, as cold air triggers the body to reserve heat and maintain fluid balance. When cold, your body decreases blood flow to your extremities and increases blood flow to your core. Your brain reads this core blood...
