About nuun
Since 2004, nuun—pronounced ‘noon'—has given athletes a new way to hydrate. Its pioneering, quick-dissolving electrolyte tablets are truly portable and convenient—with nuun, anywhere you can find water, you can readily hydrate, simply by adding one tablet to 16 ounces of water, letting it dissolve, and then drinking. A tube of nuun contains 12 tablets, enough to create 1.5 gallons of optimally balanced electrolyte drink that is lightly flavored and without sugars. nuun was the first sports drink ideal for use in hydration packs, because its sugar-free formula does not fuel the growth of bacteria and it rinses cleanly. Popular among competitive cyclists, triathletes and adventure racers, nuun has hydrated athletes throughout legendary endurance epics and is an easy-to-use hydration solution for anyone that is active, anywhere. nuun is available in four flavours and retails for $6.50 per tube.

nuun is sold through retailers in the triathlon, running, outdoor and cycling markets. The outdoor market is served by peregrine, equinox and liberty mountain sports.
