what is nuun?

nuun is a portable electrolyte replacement drink... without the sugar. just drop a nuun in your water bottle, store the tube in your pocket & you’re ready to go. it’s used by cyclists, triathletes, runners, hikers, yoga-bods, travellers around the world…in fact, it’s used by people who ‘do stuff’ & know the importance of staying properly hydrated.

will nuun eliminate cramps?

cramps are involuntary & painful enough to stop you in your tracks, but can be alleviated by keeping on top of your hydration & your electrolytes. drinking nuun will hydrate you better than water alone because with each sip, you’re drinking a consistently balanced ratio of water to electrolytes, which will ensure that your electrolyte ratios are always optimal.

what's in nuun?

  • four essential electrolytes: sodium, potassium, magnesium & calcium
  • a nice, refreshing flavour to remind you to keep drinking
  • a bit of fizzy stuff to ensure it dissolves quickly without having to mix or shake
  • a smidgen of colour in the form of riboflavin (vitamin b2) & beet juice depending on the flavour
  • a sprinking of love

what's not in nuun?

  • no sugar. we didn’t want to upset your gut or overwhelm your taste buds, & wanted to give you more control over your calorie intake.
  • no scary things (like crazy doses of caffeine) so you can happily drink nuun morning, day & night.
  • no artificial colours – do you need neon green to hydrate? need we say more…?

why no carbs?

the one-size-fits-all mentality doesn’t work in our active lives. we simply want to keep you hydrated… allowing you to focus on your gels, bars, bananas or cookies. & anyway, would you pick a sticky drink over a brownie if you had your choice?

what are the new flavours?

lemon+lime (new & improved), tri-berry & citrus fruit.
try a tube today nuun.

why did you change the format?

we love hearing feedback, & we kept hearing that you enjoyed nuun, but wanted it to last longer, & taste better. we've now doubled the strength so that one nuun tab creates 16oz. of electrolyte hydration. we’ve also fine-tuned the taste of the lemon+lime & added 2 new flavours for fun - citrus fruit & tri-berry.

can i mix nuun with other drinks?

nuun is designed to be a balanced ratio of water to electrolytes. if you find mixing nuun with other hydration products works in your training, fantastic! we drink nuun on it’s own, although we have been known to throw it in a margarita or two. & let me tell you – vodka-tonic-nuun’s are the wave of the future. the great thing is: you get to choose what works best for you!

how many servings are in nuun?

a lightweight nuun tube provides 1.5 gallons of electrolyte hydration. there are twelve nuuns per tube. one nuun creates a 16oz electrolyte drink (and can easily be broken in half for 8oz).

what are electrolytes?

electrolytes are sodium, potassium, magnesium & calcium. your body is like a big balloon filled with salty water & electrical signals are able to buzz about in there. er, simply though – electrolytes are things you need, especially when exercising. the american college of sports medicine recommends that people who are active for more than one hour get 500–700mg of sodium for every litre of water they consume. this is up to three times the sodium that traditional “sports drinks” provide. nuun provides 700mg of sodium for every litre of drink - this amount, in addition to the other critical electrolytes contained in every nuun tablet, ensure that you are adequately replenishing your body’s stores to help you perform at your best, & stay healthy.

is nuun carbonated?

nope. when dropped in water, nuun fizzes to dissolve, but once it’s finished dissolving, the drink has a bit of a charge, but will eventually go flat. it's designed to be flat – else we’d have a lot of burping athletes out there!

can i eat nuun?

well, we’ve heard of some people who’ve tried - maybe those re-living the days of pop-rocks, but nuun is designed to be mixed with water. whatever you do – don’t eat nuun & drink a fizzy drink…you’ll explode

how many calories are in nuun?

nuun has no sugar & is nearly calorie-free but there are couple of calories in there from some of the stuff that makes it fizz. when you add it up, it comes to less than 5 calories per 16oz drink.

can my kids & my dog drink nuun?

ours do. nuun’s great for hydrating & it’s a great way to get more fluids into kids. just make sure they don’t use the dog bowl.

can nuun help my aching head?

we all like to party from time to time (especially the people in the pub beneath our office!) & too much celebrating can lead to dehydration. since nuun hydrates more quickly than water alone & most sports drinks on the market, you might find us drinking nuun after our post-race celebrations. take two nuuns & call us in the morning.

can i recycle my nuun tube?

yes – the tubes can be recycled but the stoppers can’t.

how much does a nuun tube weigh?

the nuun tube weighs less than 2oz. & it’s just the right size for your jersey pocket or pack.

is nuun legal to race with?

many are surprised with their increased performance when drinking nuun. no worries, you don’t have to wonder if it’s secretly laced… it’s just electrolytes & water.

i’ve seen the nuun logo on pro athletes – do they actually use it?

yes, we’re proud these pros drink nuun & some even claim nuun as their ‘secret weapon’. there’s a talented bunch of others out there that use nuun even though they display other logos (if that’s not a real endorsement then what is?); ask around, you’d be surprised.

is nuun water-resistant?

well nuun isn’t, but the tube is.

nuun’s hypotonic – what does that mean?

we got this definition from oxford, so it must be right! “a hypotonic solution is one in which the concentration of electrolytes to water forces water to flow into cells instead of the other way around”. basically, a hypotonic solution is the quickest way to get hydrated, since it allows the efficient replenishment of water.

can nuun help prevent hyponatremia?

hyponatremia occurs when there’s too little sodium in your blood stream. if you lose electrolytes (read: sweat a lot) but try to replace them with plain water, it can be a serious risk. at nuun we’re seasoned athletes & have been working to combat hyponatremia for years. nuun is designed to deliver a constant ratio of critical electrolytes to water, giving you a simple alternative to plain h2o for more info, see science

what does nuun taste like?

nuun tastes like water with a bit of flavour. we got fed up with diluting our sports drinks & washing out the electrolytes because the taste was so overwhelming. nuun’s flavours are just enough to remind you to keep drinking. did you know… adding a flavour to water encourages you to drink 40% more than normal & adding electrolytes can up your intake by 90% vs. plain water!

who is using nuun?

cyclists, triathletes, runners, hikers, yoga-bods, travelers, adventure racers, kids, rowers, motor-cyclists, people at work, & anyone else ‘doing stuff’ & trying to stay properly hydrated.

am i dehydrated?

probably! did you know that it’s estimated that only 10% of people are properly hydrated. but since you’re here we’re going to assume you’re one of the smart ones trying to sort out this stat. signs you’re dehydrated: thirst, irritability, fatigue, headache, cramps & death.

did you say sorbitol?

ok – sorbitol is naturally occurring & in lots of things from toothpaste to apple juice. there is sorbitol in nuun but there’s less than you’d find in a small glass of apple juice. remember, we designed nuun because we love to stay active in the outdoors & we use nuun when we’re out being active, so we’re not going to take on anything we don’t think should be there. sorbitol is in nuun to help it work as a tablet but it’s at really low levels. simply, we only want to put good stuff in our bodies, & we want you to do the same.

should i use salt tabs?

salt tabs can be great if you know what you’re doing, but most people don’t, which means poor electrolyte replacement, & poor hydration. think about it this way…it’s not about the “salt”, but about the salt to water ratio. it’s tough to get that right out on the move, especially when temperatures soar, especially given that one of the common side effects of dehydration is a fuzzy head. it’s pretty easy to drink balanced nuun water, even if you are a bit confused.

by having nuun dissolve in water you’re always taking in salts at a proven ratio which is best for most people, most of the time. if you do know what you’re doing, & you have a medical need, then salt tabs can be used with nuun to increase the ratio. but remember, too much salt is bad for you, just as too little is.

that name, where does it come from & what does nuun mean?

nuun is pronounced ‘noon’ & the origin is a lot less interesting than the rumours…so we’ll stick with the rumours. we’ve heard that nuun has several meanings – from dog names to salt, to an island somewhere even to a place in the legends of zelda!. to us, it means we’re providing a product that keeps you out there.

where can i find nuun?

right here ... sort of ... just click me ... please
