NHL Player Andrew Ferrence Q&A

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...

Nuun is also a miracle worker for hangovers…just sayin’. Check out...

Swafford Claims Title on Home Turf

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...

Nuun Instead of Soda? Yes, please!

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...

SoccerCleats101.com Drinks Nuun

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...

Boston Marathon Hydration

As we've all heard by now, it was HOT at the Boston Marathon this year. So hot in fact that the BAA offered deferment and urged people to run slowly rather than race as temperatures were forecasted to soar to 88 degrees on race day. Meanwhile, we went through a record 410 gallons of Nuun samples at the expo and helped runners to stay hydrated and keep electrolyte levels optimal. On race day Nuun unofficially had some staff around mile 17 to cheer on runners on a brutal day. As the race went on they encountered and helped many hot, thirsty,...
