Being a lifestyle hydration product, Nuun seeks to use and source ingredients that are clean, and inclusive of as many diets as possible. The Ketogenic (or “Keto”) diet is no exception.
The Keto diet follows the primary principles of limiting carbohydrate intake (to less than 20g or 5% of overall caloric intake per day). This diet focuses on a high-fat, and adequate protein plan to supplement the necessary nutrients and calories needed per day.
Over time, the body adapts to rely on fats for its primary source of energy (vs. carbohydrates). This shift allows the body to tap into fat stores (ketones) for energy rather than glucose. The overall goal is to reach a metabolic state of “ketosis” which is indicative of a certain level of ketones in the blood. Studies have shown that following a keto diet can aid in certain weight loss strategies and help with various body composition efforts.
So where does Nuun fit into all of this?
Start your workout recovery from the inside out! We created our newest hydration product with athletes in mind, knowing that when you push your body to its limits, your immune system becomes more vulnerable to external pathogen invasion.
Nuun Immunity was designed by athletes, for athletes. It’s made with Non-GMO verified ingredients, including a healthful blend of electrolytes, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories. The electrolytes aid in keeping the body optimally hydrated when it’s working on overdrive to protect against germs/viruses.
We’ve added a power line-up of antioxidants which support the restoration of the body’s natural defense systems, plus anti-inflammatories that work to reduce internal inflammation (such as sore muscles after a tough workout).
Nobody looks forward to picking up the office bug or kids dragging germs back home with them from school…but it happens! When germ/flu season hits you hard, we’ve got the perfect bedside/”Netflix and Pill” companion: Nuun Immunity!
Nuun Immunity is an effervescent tablet that you drop in 16 oz. of water that helps support the natural defense systems your body uses to fight off cold and flu symptoms. If you’re on the down and out, frequent consumption of Nuun Immunity can aid in the healing process of an overworked immune system. By providing a healthy dose of antioxidants, electrolytes and anti-inflammatories, your immune system has all the right tools to fight off pathogens and begin to repair itself.
Here are four ways that Nuun Immunity goes to work for you when your system is feeling sluggish.
Nuun’s newest addition to the hydration line-up, Nuun Immunity, boasts many healthful benefits…but how exactly are our bodies reaping the rewards of these ingredients?
Let’s first dig into a breakdown of our botanical blend that was custom designed for the Nuun Immunity product. Nuun Immunity contains a base line of electrolytes and vitamins that aid in proper hydration and daily health, but is differentiated by the blend of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that contribute to overall immune health.

Long runs take a lot out of you. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you’re putting a lot back in! Both hydration and fuel play a major role in maintaining energy levels during a long run, but what is the optimal combination for long-haul success?
As a general rule of thumb, runs lasting less than 90-minutes can usually manage on solid, maintained hydration without the need for regular fuel stops. Workouts outlasting the 90-minute mark begin to take a different toll on your body. Over 90-minutes, carbohydrates play a key role in keeping your body fueled for continued endurance exercise.
While recognizing the global conversation around the sugar epidemic, the fact is that sugar is a carbohydrate. More specifically, it’s a carbohydrate that can efficiently fuel our bodies and optimizes fluid absorption, making it a helpful resource in your workout fuel plan (at the proper amounts). Not all sugar comes in the form of refined, white granular sugar that could immediately come to mind. Many nutrient dense foods provide a healthy dose of sugar carbohydrates needed for proper physiological functions and more specifically, endurance performance.
This is not to say that “more is better” when it comes to sugar and exercise. In fact, the near opposite is true. Too much sugar will stress your stomach and lead to GI distress (if you’ve been in this situation, you KNOW it’s not a good time). Additionally, too much sugar does have detrimental effects on your health. So, how much sugar is the “right” amount of sugar, and how should it be consumed with respect to exercise?
In the pursuit to optimize personal performance, athletes have been experimenting with different food sources and supplements for years! Amongst shifting fads for performance enhancement, caffeine has been a long-time favorite for endurance athletes. Caffeine has even become a banned (or restricted) substance for certain athletic competitions. Up until 2004, the International Olympic Committee restricted levels of caffeine that would pass a blood-doping test! So, that begs the question, how does caffeine play into overall athletic performance?
One of the ways that caffeine can enhance athletic performance has been sitting right beneath our noses. For many, our daily cup of coffee is our coveted mental alarm clock. The daily ritual helps to reduce mental fatigue, and jumpstart our brains into high-function gear.
