Reveiw: Nuun Active Hydration Tablets (and a giveaway!) - now closed


I am a massive fan of Nuun. I first stumbled across this runner's wonder product via Leah's blog, and took advantage of a discount code to tentatively order my first tubes - one Strawberry Lemonade, one Lemon Tea - it was love at first sip!

I don't think you can underestimate the importance of staying hydrated. Just a 2% drop in body fluids can cause headaches, cramping, fatigue and fuzzy memory. What's more, an estimated 75% of people are chronically dehydrated - there is a pretty good chance that you are one of them!
Nuun turns water in to a (delicious) balanced electrolyte drink which can help up you intake by 90% in comparison to straight water as it tricks your subconscious drive to drink! The electrolytes help to increase the amount of water that's absorbed in to bloodstream, maximising hydration. A pretty clever (and sneaky) way to make sure you don't succumb to dehydration!
I rarely run without a handheld bottle and I like to stay hydrated at my desk during the day. While water is good, sometimes it is nice to mix things up and have something a little different without all the sugar and nasties in cordials and more traditional sports drinks. Plus Nuun tastes fresh, which makes a massive difference to me - I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel a bit sick after a gulp of sports drink, especially after a hard race!

 Nuun is available in a huge range of flavours to suit every taste, both with and without caffeine. Nuun was kind enough to send me some new flavours to try out, and it is safe to say they have turned in to favourites! Orange and Citrus Fruits both have tangy, refreshing flavours, perfect for summer (and Orange tastes pretty great hot too!). Tri-Berry is a little sweeter, and perfect ice cold, sipped through the day (can you tell I am dreaming of hot weather?!). I also found that Tri-Berry was a little fizzier than Orange of Citrus Fruit (as is Strawberry Lemonade), which generally I don't mind, although it can take a little getting used to!

As well as keeping me hydrated, Nuun has kindly given me a mixed fruit variety pack (Strawberry Lemonade, Grape, Fruit Punch and Tropical flavours) to share with one of you lovely people!

To enter, simply leave comment below sharing how you stay hydrated, and for an extra entry tweet all about it (linking to your tweet below!)...easy!

A winner will be drawn at random next week!

This giveaway is now CLOSED and I am pleased to announce that Karen is the lucky winner! Thank you to everyone who entered!
My first taste of Nuun was my own purchase (with a little discount via Naturally Leah). Since then Nuun has supplied me with new flavours to try, but all opinions are my own.
