“We’re excited to introduce our new Sport Hydration Powders to give our muuvers a convenient way to proactively hydrate and in a new form for those who prefer non-fizzy beverages,” said Aileen Stocks, President, Wellness Brands at Nestlé Health Science. “We’ve taken our best-selling Sport tablet formula and created a powder version to provide more options to consumers who want to take Nuun on the road or on the trail. Nuun is science backed with optimized electrolytes to help support water absorption and includes 1 gram of sugar per serving. Our hope is to help consumers start and stay hydrated every day.” 


Nuun® Sport Hydration Electrolyte Powder Drink Mixes

Nuun® Sport Hydration Powder Drink Mixes are gluten-free, vegan, kosher, and non-GMO.  Nuun® is a value-driven brand, certified as B Corp and is a Climate Neutral Certified company. The new powders feature a similar electrolyte profile as original Nuun® Sport tablets but without the effervescent fizz.

“Hydration isn’t just about how much water you drink, it’s about how much water your body absorbs and holds on to,” said Vishal Patel, Director of Product Development, Nuun® Hydration. “Drinking water is the first step in hydrating the body. Adding essential electrolytes helps the hydration process even further. The body passively absorbs plain water through the intestinal barrier. However, the body is designed to shift to an active process when water is combined with sodium. That’s why more water can be absorbed when it’s combined with electrolytes like sodium.”
