Nuun and the Ketogenic Diet

Being a lifestyle hydration product, Nuun seeks to use and source ingredients that are clean, and inclusive of as many diets as possible. The Ketogenic (or “Keto”) diet is no exception.

The Keto diet follows the primary principles of limiting carbohydrate intake (to less than 20g or 5% of overall caloric intake per day). This diet focuses on a high-fat, and adequate protein plan to supplement the necessary nutrients and calories needed per day.

Over time, the body adapts to rely on fats for its primary source of energy (vs. carbohydrates). This shift allows the body to tap into fat stores (ketones) for energy rather than glucose. The overall goal is to reach a metabolic state of “ketosis” which is indicative of a certain level of ketones in the blood. Studies have shown that following a keto diet can aid in certain weight loss strategies and help with various body composition efforts.

So where does Nuun fit into all of this?

​Rise above the temperature: How to train WITH the heat, not against it

Hello again sunshine! Long days! Early mornings! And...heat stroke?

It’s so easy to get caught up in the excitement of summer training without taking some time to consider the adjustment period your body needs to the heat. The hot days can sneak up on us, and the truth is…running/cycling in the heat takes acclimating.

Have you ever been out for a HOT run at the beginning of the summer and not felt your “regular self” in terms of energy supplies? Welcome to the club! Thankfully, there’s a simple breakdown for that: When the sun heats up, our skin heats up with it. When our outer body is hot, our core temperature also rises, and that’s when (if not properly training and acclimated), we can run into trouble.

Nuun Immunity: Post-Workout

Start your workout recovery from the inside out! We created our newest hydration product with athletes in mind, knowing that when you push your body to its limits, your immune system becomes more vulnerable to external pathogen invasion.

Nuun Immunity was designed by athletes, for athletes. It’s made with Non-GMO verified ingredients, including a healthful blend of electrolytes, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories. The electrolytes aid in keeping the body optimally hydrated when it’s working on overdrive to protect against germs/viruses.

We’ve added a power line-up of antioxidants which support the restoration of the body’s natural defense systems, plus anti-inflammatories that work to reduce internal inflammation (such as sore muscles after a tough workout).
