As a huge proponent of nuun, I’m stoked about the new flavor, banananuun. The funny thing is when I first tried it in January at Outdoor Retailer, the ever-zippy Tim Moxey (CEO of nuun) was singing “banananuun… doot, doo, do-do-do… banananuun…” Tim is one of the best characters and most passionate CEO’s in the outdoor industry. I’m stoked to get some bananuun in my water bottles.

New Nuun Flavor BananaNuun

Here’s the official release:

nuun, which turns every water source into optimal, balanced hydration, is releasing a refreshing new flavor. Drum roll please, for the longest and potentially iconic flavour…”banananuun”. This sixth flavor will be available in stores immediately alongside the ever popular: lemon lime, citrus fruit, orange ginger, tri berry and kona cola.

“As the leader in the hydration tab market we wanted to come out with a flavour that’s not been done before,” says Tim Moxey, CEO. “We’re proud that nuun is used by the best athletes on the planet to manage hydration on the go. They understand that drinking plain water or sports drinks and staying properly hydrated are not one and the same. With over 5 years of developing the category, we know that our blend of electrolytes works best to help replace what is lost when riding/running and can also prevent cramping.”

Each dissolvable nuun tablet supplies sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium – the essential electrolytes active bodies need, without the sugars found in other sports drinks. Plus, the compact tube of 12 tablets eliminates the need for plastic bottles. Simply drop one tablet into any reusable drinking bottle and add water to make an electrolyte-enhanced drink with light, refreshing flavor.

Whether hiking, running, cycling or doing hot yoga, hydration is key for optimal performance and comfort. Yet, it is estimated that only 10 percent of people are properly hydrated. nuun’s light flavors make it easy to keep drinking to stay hydrated. In fact, adding a flavour to water increases intake by 40 percent, while adding flavour and electrolytes increases intake by 90 percent versus plain water. Plus, with nuun, one compact recyclable tube of tablets represents twelve less plastic bottles ever being made or used.

Moxey adds, “We encourage you to break the habit of using bottled water and try a banananuun tab in a reusable bottle. Get a taste of what cyclists, triathletes, runners, and hikers around the world already have. nuun – hydration reinvented.”
