My love for all things Nuun.
Have you tried Nuun? Please say you have! If you haven't you have to try it. Just once and you will be hooked.
Back on Halloween I received a package from Nuun that contained 4 tubes and their water bottle. I was excited to try it and I went for a run that day with Nuun in hand. I LOVE it. My favorite part about it is that it actually isn't overly sweet. It's a subtle flavor but a yummy subtle flavor. In the pack they sent me, it had Grape, Tropical, Strawberry Lemonade, and Fruit Punch. You can purchase this exact pack for $24.00 here. My favorite, which actually surprised me was the Tropical flavor. They were the first gone. The ones I liked the least, which isn't saying much because I still liked it, was Grape. I still have a couple of them left.
With that being said, what surprised me about this product is how long it actually lasts. I have been drinking the Nuun very regularly since October 31st and I still have a couple tablets left. There are 12 to each tub and even if you're drinking about 2 a day, a package will last you over a month. As you can see, mine lasted me 2.5 months. I don't drink it every day but I like it when I am tired of the water flavor.
One of the great things about Nuun that water doesn't have is electrolytes. Each Tablet makes 16 ounces of Nuun and delivers 360 mg. of Sodium, 100 mg. of Potassium, 25 mg. of Magnesium and 13 mg of Calcium. All the things to help you recover from your run or workout.
One other quick note is that the Nuun water bottle is by far my favorite water bottle. It sounds silly but I truly love their water bottle and use it every day I go to the gym.
I don't really have any negatives about Nuun other than the cost seems a bit high at first but if you break it down, it is about $ 0.50 each bottle (is my math right?!) That is so affordable!
I need to give one shout out to Nuun as well quickly. I am on Team Tough Chik and they recently became a sponsor! Yay for Nuun discounts! Thank you for becoming a Team Tough Chik Sponser Nuun!

I received a 4 pack of Nuun and a water bottle in compensation for my review. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
