I would bet the farm that those suspicious of electrolyte products do not live active lifestyles.

I've used Nuun (and other similar products) while long distance cycling.
As has been mentioned, the biggest advantage is portability.
When you cycle 140km in a day, you drink a lot of water.
Using these tabs helps with this, especially if you crave taste/variety.

Lol what problems? You get enough “electrolytes” by your diet alone. And licking salt isn’t going to do anything.

This whole electrolyte crazy is manufactured and pointless.
Lol, the op didn’t suggest using it as a part of a balanced diet, as the op said, it is used when exerting a lot of physical effort, like running a marathon. If you drink nothing but water you will pass out or not be able to compete. It is an alternative to Gatorade in essence. Can also use it when travelling if you get the shits.

Now what else I agree with you that 300 pounders don’t need to drink Gatorade to power their keyboard warrior edgy illinformed posts on red, some do even though to them it is empty calories and they don’t need the electrolytes however they probably don’t drink it because of the electrolytes. But if you think all electrolytes are more marketing and no substance you should let mike Babcock know that his players should just drink some water instead.

When I played golf my energy would start to wane around the 14th to 15th hole. I would pop one of these tablets into my water bottle and it gave me a bit of a boost to play a bit better and finish the round. I am not saying I would play like Jack Nicklaus but at least I not throwing my clubs into the lake. Winking Face

In case you wanted to try before buying, Nuun gives out free drinks and sample packets at every long distance run and bike event I've been to this year.

Upvote! Happy we have come to such an understanding. I too don't think that most of the people drinking gatorade move enough to warrant it. I am one of those not moving enough and was wondering if it was for me or not :)

I have not used Nuun but Hydralyte, although I am sure they are the same "recipe". The reason these things work is they are designed for optimal absorption, which is a lot less sugar and more salts Gatorade. Your body doesn't have much to do with this liquid before it gets absorbed, even less so than water. World Health Organization has a "Oral Re-hydration Solutions" recipe that they use the dehydrated in places where access to clean water is limited. It's perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

Here is a wiki on oral rehydration therapy if anyone is interested, it is something that I have been looking into these past few years that I been off/on sick.

Working outside doing construction in this hot weather I started taking some Electrolytes.
Tried Gatorade zero, Powerade Zero, EcoDrink Multivitamin, ZipFizz, Pureboost Clean Energy, Vega Sport Hydrator.
So far Pureboost citrus is the best, least sugary, but I get it from States.

Have to finally give Nuun Sport a try, hoping it's not that sweet, hate all these super sweet drinks, just wish it was bigger dose of electrolytes.

This is a good price.

I use these in my water bottle for playing sports instead of licking salt and eating spinach on the bench Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Tightly-closed Eyes

Gah.....it’s got Stevia extract in it. I can taste that stuff in anything it’s in and it’s nasty (to me). I thought I was odd because stevia is in so many things nowadays (lots of protein powders too) but apparently some people are very sensitive to the taste.
