To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As a professional athlete who sweats a lot these things have been a game changer. They taste good enough, I love the Tropical flavor but I’ve tried a bunch and haven’t found one I didn’t like. The tabs split in half easily so you can pop them in to any water bottle, I sometimes add them to a cold seltzer. On a normal hot day I take 2 on a really hot day I take 3. Googling says take no more than 6 but I wouldn’t take that unless I was running a freaking marathon. When I don’t take them, I wake up feeling nauseous at night and the next day feel drained and bleh. Now I take them pretty religiously and have felt healthy and functional.
I have been buying these for about four years now. My husband has completed 7 Ironman competitions, over 12 Half Ironmans, & countless other running and biking competitions, and hiked all over the world. This is his must have-go to drink supplement. He says it really works at replenishing his electrolytes and we both really like the taste. It doesn’t leave a horrible fake sweetener or flavor after taste like so many others. Berry is his favorite
Wish they used stevia or similar to sweeten, since these are more salty tasting than sweet anyway, but the sugar in them still gives me baby juice breath and hurts my teeth. The tablets are easy to use and don’t require stirring or shaking, but aren’t easy to break apart for smaller bottle openings, so smaller or scored tablets would be welcome. Criticisms aside, not a bad product, and I love the tube packaging. I did find a similar product made without sugar that I prefer.
I am a runner and I drink more water than the average person. I was getting lightheaded a lot, so my doctor suggested I add electrolytes once a day. I researched several different tablets and powders and these are the only ones that do not contain a large amount of sugar (I believe they use a very small amount of stevia). I don’t much care for the taste or fizz (I typically only drink water, so I’m not big on flavored drinks anyway), but the tropical and fruit punch flavors are tolerable—especially as I’ve gotten used to them over time. I found the strawberry lemonade to be pretty gross, so I didn’t end up finishing the tube. They dissolve quickly enough and do seem to help with hydration.
Can’t take Gatorade, even though Gators are our favorite Football and Baseball teams. These tablets are great! No.dizziness hiking at high altitudes in the Swiss Alps, no loss of electrolytes now and extremely convenient. Excellent in working in hot humid Florida weather. Highly recommend!!!
The flavor isn't necessarily bad, but it's very similar to one part of the Plenvu colonoscopy prep. May be a little hard to get down if you have done that. However, the level of sodium is just what I need after working out. Nuun has saved me from a few urgent care visits because of its electrolytes. Even sports drinks aren't enough to restore the electrolyte balance, but one or two Nuun tablets help get my electrolytes back where they need to be. Not that everyone needs that much, I just sweat very salty.
I use these for road cycling. The tropical is by far my favorite flavor. I took these on an 86-mile race that took me up four peaks and, thanks to these, I didn’t cramp once. The small packaging allowed me to take a canister with me in the back pocket of my cycling jersey. I also like that they don’t give me the caffeine jitters like so many other electrolyte packages. The only problem I’ve ever had with these is if they get left in a hot car (120+ degrees F), the tablets have fused together.
I am only giving 3 stars because the description says grape flavor, it is not grape it is tropical. I ordered this because I wanted the grape flavor, I am not going to send it back because I don't mind the tropical, just unhappy because the description is wrong and needs to be fixed. It was delivered in one day, I am happy about that.
Nuun tablets are one of my favorite supplements for shorter runs. I live in a very hot and humid climate, so I sweat a lot and need to replace electrolytes. On a run less than an hour I use these. They help me feel great during and after I run without unnecessary calories.
