Published December 8, 2017

SEATTLE, Wash. (BRAIN) — Nuun is expanding the availability of its recently introduced vitamin hydration product into Canada. Nuun Vitamins will debut in Canada at Whole Foods and MEC.

"Our society is in a critical state with preventable chronic diseases at an all-time high," said Kevin Rutherford, the president and CEO of Nuun. "At Nuun we strive to create positive change and developed Vitamins as part of our continued efforts to help reverse these trends. Nuun Vitamins has been very well received in the United States and the Nuun team is excited to share it with our friends in Canada."

Nuun Vitamins is an effervescent, self-dissolving tablet that has 11 vitamins and minerals. It includes those that are the most under-consumed micronutrients within the overall public and those that athletes need to consume in larger quantities. These include vitamin A, C, D and E for immune function and antioxidant support, B12 and folate for energy metabolism and minerals magnesium and calcium for muscle function and bone support. In order to maximize nutrient absorption the levels of each vitamin are 25-50% of the recommended daily value. Fluid delivery is optimized given the complete electrolyte blend and addition of non-GMO cane sugar. Vitamins has very low sugar, with only 2 grams per serving and 10 total calories.

"Given the research and development of our Active line, we have optimized waters' ability to hydrate and transport nutrients into the body," said Vishal Patel, the chief nutritionist for Nuun. "With Vitamins we learned our complete electrolyte profile with the correct vitamin blend could have a synergistic improvement on immune function and healthy hydration."

Nuun Vitamins is debuting in Canada with two non-caffeinated flavors, Blueberry Pomegranate and Tangerine Orange, and two caffeinated options, Ginger Lemonade and Blackberry Citrus. The caffeine is 40 mg of organically sourced whole leaf green tea extract. Each tube of Nuun Vitamins contains 12 tablet servings with a retail price of $8.99. It is also sold in a 4-flavor multi-pack for $29.99. The line is available at Whole Foods and in store and online with MEC and other sports specialty retailers.
