About Nuun & Company

Nuun, based in Seattle, WA, makes a healthier sports drink that comes in tablet form so it is convenient to carry and add to water, and is better for the environment than ready to drink options. Nuun uses clean ingredients and works with leading sports nutritionists to deliver delicious, healthy hydration for exercise and for daily health.  Founded in 2004, Nuun was the first to separate electrolyte replacement from carbohydrates, recognizing that for most workouts under 90 minutes, additional sugar or carbohydrate isn’t needed.  Today, Nuun Electrolytes remains the #1 selling sport drink product in bike, run, outdoor specialty, and outdoor chain stores. Nuun’s mission is hydration that inspires more movement, and Outside Magazine, who named Nuun as #46 in its 2017 ‘Best Places to Work’ list, has recognized their culture and mission.  To learn more, visit or follow them on social media.
