With summer just around the corner it's a great time to review hydration basics before you set out to train for your next event or spend time in the sun.
We recently partnered up with nutritionist-and-athletes Jesse & Jaime at The Core Diet to put together these tips and tricks for Brooks Running, but even the most well-hydrated folks out there (Nuun drinkers!) can use a refresher this time of year.
- Have you ever calculated your sweat rate?
- Do you know how much water you should be drinking per day?
- Do you know about the risks of hyponatremia?

National Geographic's Beyond the Puck offers a rare glimpse into the life of eco-warrior and NHL hockey player Andrew Ference. "But he is not your typical hockey player. Andrew's an environmental activist, a Stanley Cup champion, the husband of a former professional snowboarder, and father of two girls. He rides his bike to “work” and doesn’t mind being called a tree hugger. He’s just as comfortable checking opponents on the ice as he is teaching kids about composting in elementary schools," according to National Geographic. Want to know something else about Andrew? He uses Nuun to prepare for his NHL games! Be sure to check out the whole video, but...Read More
We're proud to announce one of our newest partnerships with Your Scrumhalf Connection, THE source for women's rugby information. What started out as the typical dehydration story... The Texas heat was causing major problems with cramping and hydration despite drinking MORE than the prescribed amount of water on a daily basis. Ended happily with well-hydrated and high performance Ruggers! I was introduced to Nuun by a fellow rugger & crossfitter last year and have been religiously slurping it down ever since! ...I no longer have cramps at night or during rugby practice or long tournament weekends. Nuun is also a miracle worker for hangovers…just sayin’. Check out...Read More
Nationwide’s Stadion Classic: Home Course Advantage It has been less than a year since this year’s Stadion Classic champion, Hudson Swafford, was heading out to team practice at UGA’s home course in Athens, GA preparing for NCAA regionals. You could tell Hudson was no stranger to this course as he carded a stellar final round of 62! This win boosted him from being No. 61 on the money list all the way to No. 7. Athens was more than ecstatic to see Hudson return and take home the title. The stands went wild when Hudson holed out on his last hole of the...Read More
Samantha over at Running and Cupcakes just posted a great review about the importance of hydration and Nuun's role. In fact, it was so awesome that us here at the Nuun office may have learned a tip or two! Such as, keep Nuun everywhere, as in your purse, workout bag, at your desk, and in your kitchen, and never be without a bottle to fill. Samantha begins by telling a story about her dehydrated days. Can you guess how the story ends? Once upon a time there was a Little Cupcake (we’ll call her LC for short) who drank nothing but soda. And...Read More
How do we convince folks to toss their high-calorie electrolyte replacement beverages? Usually, just by letting them test out some Nuun! SoccerCleats101.com recently tried Nuun, but was a little apprehensive to integrate something new into the routine. Swayed by our long list of ambassadors - as well as the effective reputation of our product - they gave it a go and had some great things to say: "Having spent a few weeks finishing off one container of tablets, I have to admit I am a huge fan. The key difference is that these are very light and produce a flavored water rather than the...Read More

Last year the ladies on the Nuun Hood to Coast team - along with the Nuun staffers - shared lots of laughs, many miles, even more tweets, and formed some lifelong friendships in the process. The experience was one of a lifetime for everyone, and this year we've added on a third team to triple the fun. Reviewing all of the amazing candidates was an honor. It was no easy task to select our team because every applicant was so deserving. However, after hours of viewing and thoughtful consideration, here are the ladies who will be joining us in 2012. The list of 30 team...Read More
