To hydrate for morning workouts
Patel says to take Nuun Energy 30 to 45 minutes ahead of your workout to hit the sweet spot for performance.
One Fleet Feet reviewer says, “I usually drink coffee every morning, an hour before I run. I swapped the coffee for Nuun Energy, to focus more on hydration. What I didn’t expect was that Nuun Energy seems to wake me up faster than coffee does for early morning runs. I think it helps me get out the door quickly, feeling more prepared to run. That’s a big bonus for me on a busy day.”
We asked Patel if the difference was in our imaginations.
“The effervescent nature of the product helps increase absorption of the nutrients so you can feel it more and faster,” he says. “Nuun Energy has a different effect than coffee because it contains a cleaner [organic] source that is shown to stay in your system longer. And the combination of caffeine with ginseng enhances the impact.”
That’s because ginseng has been shown to work with caffeine to enhance the stimulant impact without causing a spike or crash that you see with some caffeine drinks. It also supports cognitive health.
