We�re talking about Nuun Electrolyte Tablets today.
Hey guys what�s up, Taren here from A-Race and today we are hovered over my leftoverstash of Nuun Active Hydration and the Nuun Active Energy.
I started out really reallyliking the drinks, but unfortunately that love affair has worn off.
This is actuallygoing to be the first not so good review that I�ve done on the channel.
First, some of the things that I like about it however.
Nuun is not all bad, frankly it�sactually a really really good product, just not a great product for me.
THE GOODThe first thing I like about Nuun is that it�s really easy to use.
As you saw it�sa tablet, it�s not a powder, so you don�t even have to shake the bottle you just haveto drop it into your water and it dissolves instantly, which is awesome.
It also comesin tubes, so you can take that tube and stuff it in a backpack or a jersey pocket so ittravels really easily.
All in all it�s one of the most easy electrolyte drinks to use.
The second thing that I like about this is the taste and that was what had be sold originallyon the Nuuns.
The Active Hydration has eleven flavors and the Nuun Energy with the caffeinehas three flavors.
Pretty much all of them taste like a mild version of the pop thatyou would associate it with, so the lemon lime taste like a light Sprit, cherry limeadethis is kind of like a light cherry coke.
So the taste of this is going to be a littlemore pronounced than say and Osmo or a Skratch, I�ll link to those in the description youcan hear about those products.
This is going to taste a little stronger than those butit�s still light tasting, so it never tastes syrupy like some of those really sugary drinks,it just gives you a little bit more taste in your mouth which I think is the perfectamount of taste.
The next thing that I like about Nuun is the price.
These are singles but the tubes comefor seven bucks, you get ten in them, so it�s coming in at seventy cents per drink.
That�spretty reasonable with a lot of the drinks coming in at a dollar, or just over a dollarper serving.
And Lastly, I do want to mention that the composition of Nuun is really good.
You�vegot about 360 milligrams of sodium, and a hundred milligrams of potassium.
That is basicallythe perfect ratio of electrolytes that you want to be taking down.
And if you need alittle bit of a kick in the ass to get out the door in the morning the Nuun Energy isactually really good.
It�s got forty milligrams of caffeine, that�s about a half a cup ofcoffee.
So in my experience it doesn�t get you jittery, it just gives you a little bitof a kick to get up and get going.
THE BADThe first thing that I dislike about it; I actually find that there�s a fair bit ofsloshing around in my stomach.
This didn�t happen all the time, it only happened on areally tough workout, particularly a track workout where a couple of times in the afternoonwhere it was very humid I was taking some Nuun Energy and one time my stomach just absolutelyblew up.
Yeah, blew up, it wasn�t pretty.
I�m gonna save you the details.
I�m not exactly sure what it is; it could be the fuzziness causing a little bit of burpingin the stomach.
It could be that Nuun is almost entirely calorie free, and what I�ve foundis that a little bit of sugar in a drink actually helps to digest the water and absorb the hydrationthat you�re taking in.
But whatever it is, those couple of times that I really pushedit on the track it didn�t quite agree with me.
The second thing that I don�t like about about Nuun is also what I do like about Nuun.
I like the taste of that fizziness, but when I�m using it during a really hard workoutand I�m breathing really heavy I don�t want to be burping up Nuun.
That�s what I�m going to say about Nuun.
It�s not by any means a bad electrolytedrink.
If you don�t have a delicate stomach it�s not going to be bad for you, it�sactually a really good product and you might as well give it a try.
They�ve got greattasting stuff.
It�s just not the right product for me because it doesn�t work with my sensitivestomach, which really sucks because I like the taste of it.
