​Watermelon Jalapeno Nuunarita

This year, we’re celebrating our favorite summer fruit by way of a Nuun margarita (or as we like to call it, a Nuunarita)! August 3rd is National Watermelon Day and we’ve mixed up JUST the cocktail for the occasion. Why, oh why do we love watermelon so? Let us count the ways…

1. Watermelon is made up of over 90% water. Bonus points for hydration!
2. It’s the fruit that brings the party. No summer BBQ is complete with watermelon slices.
3. It’s PINK! Come on, it doesn’t get any more fun than that!
4. Watermelon is full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. #healthpoints
5. It’s delightfully sweet and refreshing after a hot workout.

This blended margarita is the best of all watermelon worlds. It’s refreshing, spicy, and tasty with a dose of Nuun Hydration! Does it get any better than this? (Hint: No, no it doesn’t.)

​Having fun with hydration: Keeping your kids healthy and hydrated

Staying properly hydrated is important no matter what your shape or size, even if you’re a pint-sized peanut!

Nuun and the Ketogenic Diet

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?

​Rise above the temperature: How to train WITH the heat, not against it

Hello again sunshine! Long days! Early mornings! And...heat stroke?

It’s so easy to get caught up in the excitement of summer training without taking some time to consider the adjustment period your body needs to the heat. The hot days can sneak up on us, and the truth is…running/cycling in the heat takes acclimating.

Have you ever been out for a HOT run at the beginning of the summer and not felt your “regular self” in terms of energy supplies? Welcome to the club! Thankfully, there’s a simple breakdown for that: When the sun heats up, our skin heats up with it. When our outer body is hot, our core temperature also rises, and that’s when (if not properly training and acclimated), we can run into trouble.
