The Nuun tablets contain various ‘ Great for you’ ingredients such as Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B2. Each tablet only amounts to 6 calories meaning these tablets will not break you diet.
The Nuun formula has been built on years of research and development, which has contained feedback from some of the world’s top academic and practising experts of sports medicine. Nuun's development has been focused on three important aspects of hydration.
Speed of absorption
One of the most important things when it comes to hydration is the speed of absorption by the body, especially when active. Nuun's concentration of dissolved salts and sugars is what determines the speed in which your body can absorb the formula. Nuun tablets can be absorbed by the body faster that the industry’s leading sports drink, or even water alone.
It is recommended by professionals that an active person have around 500-700 mg of sodium for every litre of water consumed. This is around 3 times the amount that most ‘Sports drinks’ have. Nuun provides 700mg of sodium for every litre of fluid you drink as well as its other electrolytes. They replenish your body and help you to really perform at your best.
Nuun tablets do not contain any carbs and there are a few reasons for this. Firstly carbs would slow down the speed of absorption by the body, by slowing the rate that the stomach is emptied. Nuun also know and understand that some people want to avoid any unnecessary carbs so Nuun intend to help them do so. To Nuun it does not seem sensible to consume a sports drink loaded with carbs. Although if you are taking part in physical activity for a long period of time, say 60-90 minutes that your body will need a source of carbs to keep your energy levels at a high. Nuun tablets allow you to choose whatever energy source you want to use with their tablets, whether its bars, gels or even brownies.
Some of the worlds top athletes use Nuun tablets regularly whilst competing or working out. It is chosen and trusted by many cyclists, runners, triathlers, swimmers, hikers and many, many more. What ever you are doing, if you are looking to keep your body properly hydrated then Nuun is the product for you. You don’t have to be professional to use Nuun, it works just as well for regular folks when keeping active and staying healthy.
