PLUS for Nuun

I wanted to share with you a new product. Recently, as a part of #TeamNuun, I got a chance to attend a Nuuniversity session on Nuun's newest PLUS for Nuun. It was a really informative session, so much so, that I felt the need to share the great information with you.

What is PLUS for Nuun?

PLUS for Nuun fuels you faster. It is a flavorless additive you can use to customize your flavored Nuun. It provides you with an unique blend of performance carbohydrates and electrolytes that hydrate the body quickly and delivers fast energy. It comes in the familiar self-dissolving effervescent tabs you're used to with Nuun. 

The Two C's

It also comes with two key C's: clean and control. PLUS is created from clean ingredients. The use the purist ingredients and pack it in their environmentally friendly container. It's gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO. 

Clean Ingredients + Clean Planet = Clean Athlete. 

Second, PLUS for Nuun gives you the control to add exactly how much YOU need, when YOU need it. You have complete control. It gives you modularity and precision. With the tablet, you add how much you need. Nuun put together a great chart, recommending how much intake you may need, based on your length of exercise per hour plus other carbohydrates you should consume. The important thing is they know you need a diversity of carbohydrates. They add a diversity of carbohydrates in their product as well as recommend additional carbs you should take in from other sources. This chart is direct from their site, and meant to be a starting point and adjusted for your personal needs.

Proven Faster

Nuun conducted a small scale, clinical study to test the performance for PLUS for Nuun. They found proven performance increase. They found an increase in both time to fatigue and in speed. They also found a decrease in max heart rate as well as a decreased rate of perceived effort. Lastly, they also found an increase fluid retention. I'd expect nothing less from my favorite hydration company.
