|Nuun (it's pronounced "noon")|
1. I thought it was time for a giveaway.
2. I've been drinking a lot of Nuun lately.
3. I must have had a perfectly hydrated brain yesterday when it occurred to me that I should give away some Nuun.
So... what is the stuff? From the Nuun website:
Nuun Active Hydration is a line of electrolyte enhanced drink tablets designed to keep you optimally hydrated wherever your active lifestyle and athletic endeavors take you. You sweat, Nuun replenishes. Packed with electrolytes, light flavor, no sugars or carbs, and portable, Nuun Active Hydration is the perfect sports drink. The electrolytes found in Nuun will help alleviate cramps, help muscles function, communicate and burn energy efficiently.
Why do I drink it?
Water is my favorite way to hydrate, but often it's not enough, especially after a run when I can feel the salt drying on my face. I need to replace the salt in my body, and a salt lick doesn't sound too appealing. There are sport drinks I could consume, but they are so high in sugar and calories that they negate the calories I just ran to burn. (And those calories are usually being banked for something other than fruit punch.) Each Nuun tablet contains electrolytes – sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Nuun is refreshing, not too much flavor, and barely sweet. Plus, it's easy. Drop a tablet in a bottle of water and a minute later...voilá...lemonade (or tropical, orange, grape, cola...the flavor options go on...) There’s no sugar in Nuun, no corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors. (The traditional Nuun does contain sorbitol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol, the other varieties contain stevia.)
Want to try some for yourself?
I'll send one of you a four pack of Nuun. With 12 tablets in each tube, you can hydrate yourself and your family 48 times. To enter, simply tell me what your favorite beverage is. Kyle's answer would be Founders Centennial IPA. I do love to chug H2O all day, but a strong margarita is a close second.
I'll draw a winner Monday afternoon.
