Every Hip Daddy Athlete Needs Healthy Hydration.

We like to workout, important to keeping it healthy with the kids and all.  And we admit it, we have been drinking Gatorade for years…inspired by the infamous “Gatorade Fridge” in our childhood.  Yes, we read the book too, First to Thirst...a great marketing read which means we loved all their advertising over the years too…is it in you? Yes, it’s in us.  BUT, the story has been changing, especially as we look to put better things into our body and some reports suggest Gatorade isn’t so great for you…

Do you know Nuun?  We didn’t until recently.  But this company, based in Seattle, is the “pioneer of electrolyte enhanced drink tablets that turn water into an optimally balanced sports drink without the sugars and plastic waste of traditional sports drinks.”  Founded in 2004, Nuun is used by the world’s best athletes in running, cycling, triathlon, golf, outdoor, and general fitness.  Wow.  And unlike many others that have come and gone, Nuun is still around, years later.  That means something in this category.  So why Nuun (outside the validation through all these elite athletes)?

It’s “clean.”  They choose clean ingredients (giving you the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and hydrated) and make their products with a plants-first mindset, and we say kudos to that.  Not to mention the key buzz words like vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, Nuun has got it going on!

Although it is not as easy to find as something like a Gatorade or Powerade, Nuun is something to seek.  After all, every Hip Daddy needs the right hydration post workout to keep us going and going…and going…
