What our Nutritionist* Says:
One of the biggest challenges while running is staying properly hydrated while still meeting your body’s electrolyte replenishment needs. Dehydration can prevent runners from performing at their best. Nuun is a low carb alternative to provide you with the correct balance electrolytes needed to replenish the body during and after sweating hard on those hot, humid days. Maintaining proper electrolytes in the body will help the muscles contract more efficiently, aid in the absorption of carbs, prevent muscle cramping.
Did you know…
You can plan ahead and pre-load on electrolytes the same way you can carbs! They are best done together, so as you’re getting in extra carbs, aim for more electrolytes! The easiest way is to reach for Nuun which has all the electrolytes that you need to pre-load and be ready to hit the ground running tomorrow!
What our Staff Say:
If I am preparing for an event I will load up on electrolytes the day before by drinking Nuun All Day – Rhea K.
