Well and Good: Nuun

Blog_Nuun_10-14_BlogHealthandWellness_270x198I have been challenged in a double dog dare kind of situation. You might know the architect behind all of this.  It’s George Flores, FRESH’s Produce Manager. George is not quite the man he once was. Through hard work and good nutrition, he has lost 30 pounds.

I’m most proud of my friend for doing something real to improve his health. He has inspired me and challenged me to a one-mile race to take place in the next four weeks. This may not sound like a big deal, but for this sofa-sitting sister, it is!

I’ve got to get moving! In this Texas heat, that means stinky, sweaty business.

I know it’s important to keep hydrated. Hydration is important for your overall health, regardless of your daily activity level. A large percentage of your body is made up of water, and proper hydration means ensuring that your body maintains that level of water.

Hydration, however, is more than just drinking water. Proper hydration is essential for concentration and attention to detail, whether you’re running a marathon or a marathon of errands. Even a small decline in hydration levels can result in a decrease of mental and physical performance. Nobody’s got time for that.

So, I’ve gotten serious about hydration. Nuun is helping me out with that. You can find a kaleidoscope of flavors in the Health & Wellness section of FRESH.

Nuun, pronounced “Noon,” was the first company to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates. Before Nuun if you wanted electrolytes, the result was a bottle full of sugar. With our simple, self-dissolving, sugar-free electrolyte tab, we forever revolutionized the sports drink.

Nuun was originally the brainchild of a student and professor from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. An avid cyclist, he longed for a lightweight, easy-to-use hydration method that didn’t include a sticky, high-calorie mess. His research led to the creation of a sugarless, dissolvable and portable tablet called Nuun.

Eight years later, Nuun Active Hydration is the No.1 selling sports drink tab in the cycling, running and outdoor specialty marketplaces. As education about hydration and wellness grows, Nuun has become more accessible to a wider range of people. In response, Nuun has expanded its product line from sports performance hydration to include two all-natural, vitamin-enhanced products for everyday use, Nuun All Day Hydration and U Natural Hydration.

Be it a bike ride, a long day at the office or a day at home juggling kids, Nuun has a tablet and flavor customized to help you stay healthy and hydrated. Watch out George! I’m hydrated and going to catch up with you!
