Review: Nuun Rest

Disclaimer: I received some Nuun Rest to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find and write race reviews.

I have been in a monthly mileage competition with a couple of friends and every month, my friend has won, except last month. August was a good running month: My leg was feeling better and the weather was nice. This month, I have really been kicking it up with my runs and workouts. As a result, however, I have been significantly more tired than usual. Thankfully, I received the Nuun Rest around the same time as my workouts and running started to pick up.

Some things I have learned is that Nuun Rest is intended for recovery, not as a electrolyte replacement, and that it may make the user sleepy. The key components of this product is Magnesium and Tart Cherry juice which are intended to aid in recovery. I mixed a tablet with approximately six ounces of warm(ish) water or cold water that warmed in my car, while I was out running or working out. There was a bit of a residue left in my glass, once I finished the drink, but I was able to easily wipe or rinse it out. I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised about how tasty the drinks were. I preferred the blackberry vanilla, when it was warm out, and the lemon chamomile, in place of a warm evening tea.

I am not too health conscious: I know that I need to eat more natural foods (fruits and vegetables) but I love bread (processed sugars). I run and workout often and I think the Nuun Rest is be a nice choice, for those days that I clearly have moved my body too much and need a boost on relaxing and getting enough sleep.

If you are interested in giving Nuun Rest a try, be sure to save yourself some money by using HYDRATEBIPRO to get 20% off (excluding subscription options and bundles). This discount code is good through October 31, 2019 but do not wait to use it.
