Why is hydration important?
Well for Life

Hydration is important for your overall health, regardless of your daily activity level. Water alone isn't always enough. The body needs proper fluid balance (water + electolytes like sodium and potassium) to help muscles function, communicate and burn energy efficiently. Nuun is used by more athletes than any other electrolyte tablet.

An estimated 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated and won't realize it until they start to feel the symptoms. By this time, the damage of dehydration has already set in. Dehydration can result in muscle fatigue, cramps, headaches, dizziness, nausea, decreased performance level and rapid heart rate. Just walking down the street on a hot day can cause dehydration. Proper hydration fuels muscle and brain function.

Sports drinks and beverages containing lots of sugar can accelerate the dehydration process. Sugar requires water from the body in order to be digested, leaving less water to properly fuel muscle and brain function. With zero sugars and only 8 calories in each 16 oz. bottle, Nuun is a smart choice for hydration.
