Product Review: Nuun- Finally a Sugar-Free Sports Drink

Looking for a sports drink with less sugar? How about one with NONE?

Whether you play soccer, are training for a marathon or just out for a daily jog, staying hydrated and replenishing electrolytes is key to your performance. Water quenches your thirst but doesn’t replace needed electrolytes. Leading sports drinks replace electrolytes, and fuel you but have 60 grams of sugar (!) per bottle. That’s not doing us any favors when striving to be fit and healthy!

There is finally a sugar free and carb free alternative called Nuun for your hydration and electrolyte replacement needs! Nunn Active Hydration comes in the form of electrolyte enhanced drink tablets which dissolve nicely into 16 ounces of water in 2 minutes. It has a light, refreshing taste and comes packaged in a compact tube which is easier to lug around in a sports bag and more environmentally friendly than a large bottle.

My experience: I play in a soccer tournament each year in 90 degree desert heat and I’ve always struggled to stay hydrated and perform at my highest level. A regular sports drink typically left me feeling too full and queasy from the sugar that is included.

I tried Nuun during our tournament this year and noticed an enormous difference in my hydration and energy levels. I felt lighter on my feet, needing to drink less fluid and had no sugar crash after the game. Sure it didn’t magically help me score more goals but I didn’t need to sub out of the game as often which helped me stay focused.
