Nuun Active Hydration is an electrolyte enhanced drink tablet designed for an on-the-go lifestyle. Packed with electrolytes, light flavor, and made from clean ingredients, Nuun is the perfect sports drink for any of the activities you do. Drop a Nuun tablet into 16oz of water and you’re good to go.
The electrolytes found in Nuun (Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium) will help alleviate cramps, help muscles function, communicate and burn energy efficiently.
Nuun is manufactured in Minneapolis, MN in the U.S.A. with domestic and imported ingredients.
Tubes can be recycled at any facility that processes #5 plastics. Go to this website http://www.preserveproducts.com/recycling/gimme5locations.html to find a location near you. However, only the tube itself is recyclable. The waterproof stopper is not yet recyclable.
the tiny beads are made up of silicon dioxide, and help retain any moisture present within the tube. silicon dioxide is non-toxic.
You can certainly prepare your nuun in advance to make the morning of the race or a training session more convenient. We’ve noticed that refrigerating for several days only affects the flavoring, not the nutrient content or quality.
Our products have a 24-month expiration date from the time they were produced. The expiration date can be found stamped on the bottom of the tube.
When stored at or under 80 F, with the bag properly sealed the dried powder will stay fresh for two years after manufactured date.
When pre-mixed and refrigerated, performance will stay fresh for up to a week. There may be some settling, just give the bottle a quick shake and it will be properly mixed.
Also, as with all sport drinks, give it a smell or a quick taste. If something seems off discard the serving and mix up a fresh batch!
We recommend storing performance the same way as our tablets. Please be sure to re-seal the bulk bags properly after use, and store below 80 F.
Given the nature of the product with its higher amount of sugar and real fruit powder, clumping will occur more frequently. We have designed our bags and sachets to mitigate clumping to a certain degree, but we recognize under warmer conditions this can happen.
If the powder hardens up in the sachet, try and break it up before adding it to water. The harden powder will dissolve completely in water; however, it will take a bit longer than free flowing powder.
