Did you know that your body cannot efficiently retain water replinishment after exercising without electrolytes? Sure enough!
Are you still sipping old school with water or [gulp] Gatorade? Welcome to the new age of hydration! Back for its second summer, Nuun Energy has found its way into the hydration bottles of many of our local athletes!
Nuun Energy is an electrolyte tablet that is put into your hydration bottle. It delivers the optimal electrolyte profile to your body to replinish what is lost through sweat.
In fact, during exercise a mere 2% loss in body weight can lead to a decrease in exercise performance. Nuun energy contains a complete electrolyte blend, with added nutrients to help metabolize food into fuel, and provide mental clarity and focus.
But what exactly do these electrolytes do?
Electrolytes are tiny particles that are electronically charged and are lost to some extent via sweat when exercising. [They have] a key function in maintaining fluid balance, and supporting normal body function. Sodium and potassium are the two electrolytes needed at greater quantity, due to their important roles in fluid retention and preventing muscle cramping respectively. Magnesium and calcium complete the electrolyte profile by aiding in muscle contractions and movement. Kiss cramps goodbye!
