Friday Five:  #Fuelfaster with PLUS for Nuun

Plus for Nuun HydrationAs a member of Team Nuun, I recently had the opportunity to test out their brand new product, PLUS for Nuun. If you are a fan of Nuun Hydration, you are going to love their latest tablet.  And, the best part is that it is hitting shelves as we speak and already available for purchase at!  So for the Friday Five link up with Mar, Cynthia, and Courtney, I thought I would give you five facts about Plus for Nuun.

What is Plus for Nuun?

This product is designed to be an additive to the Nuun Active or Energy you already know and love.  PLUS is an all-natural, flavorless tablet with a performance blend of carbohydrates & added electrolytes. By adding Plus for Nuun to your fluids you gain an extra electrolyte boost, as well as specially blended carbohydrates, that will help your body absorb nutrients more efficiently and thus fuel you faster.

Each serving contains:

sodium: 410 mg / potassium: 201 mg / magnesium: 75 mg / calcium: 63 mg

48 calories / 11g carbs (includes 2 tablets of plus and 1 tablet active)

When should you use Plus?

Plus is especially helpful during long endurance efforts.  It’s designed to be used for exercise that is over an hour in duration or for higher intensity sessions.  I think this is going to be really awesome for everyone getting ready to start their training plans for those fall marathons.

How do you use Plus?

Just add 2-4 tablets of Plus for Nuun to your favorite flavor of Nuun Active or Nuun Energy.  Let them fizz and enjoy!

What are my initial thoughts?

As someone that has experiences GI issues while tackling longer distances, I think Plus for Nuun is going to be a game changer for me.  I love that it is customizable.  It is going to be pretty nice to be able to add a tablet for every 5grams of carbohydrates my body needs.  During marathon training this fall, I look forward to figuring out what works for me.  As for the drink itself, the consistency is just a little different, and maybe a hint sweeter.  Other than that, it’s great that it is flavorless so that you can add it to your favorite Nuun flavors!

    • These are just prelim thoughts. I haven't tested it on long runs yet since I'm still running low mileage (thanks injury). I just tested it for taste and consistency. I plan to do a post on how I incorporate the PLUS into my marathon training when I get back in the swing of longer runs. I will have to see how it goes with carrying tablets too! I'll keep you posted.

  3. I'm excited to try this. Do you think this is meant to eliminate gels? Would you eliminate gels with it?

    • From the Nuuniversity webinar, it's designed to be consumed with whatever works for your nutritionwise. If you check out the graphic above, it gives you an idea of the amount of carbs per hour for consumption.

    I'm one of the few people that have never tried Nuun.
    Nothing against it though, in fact so many runners rave about it it's definitely something that I would try. I love that they have so many flavors! I don't drink suppliments and stuff like this when I train, but sometimes in later miles of a marathon I will, so yes if a race had it, I would give it a try towards the end, for sure!!!

  5. I totally want to try this….not avail in Canada yet…soooo sad!!
