Disclaimer: I received a tube of the Orange Citrus Nuun Immunity and a tube of the Blueberry Tangerine Nuun Immunity for free in exchange for a review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to find and write race reviews!
I have used Nuun products throughout the last several years of training so I am always excited when they release a new product. One of their more recent new products was Nuun Immunity. I will take all the help I can get with my immune system as I get closer and closer to my fall marathon. I purchased some of the Nuun Immunity with my last order and thus was more than happy to participate in this campaign.
I like that Nuun products are small and do not take up a lot of space. I have tubes of the stuff all over - my pantry, my purse, my desk at work. Nuun Immunity comes in the same packaging that the other Nuun hydration products come in and work the same way: Just drop a tab into a water bottle and fill with water. Wait a few minutes and voila. Instant immunity boost. I also like making it with hot water to have a tea of sorts in the fall/winter.
Nuun immunity comes in two flavors: Orange Citrus and Blueberry Tangerine. Lucky for me citrus based flavor profiles are my fave so I liked both flavors and would be hard pressed to play favorites. The key ingredients in either flavor of Nuun Immunity are elderberry, turmeric, echinacea, ginger powder, zinc/selenium and vitamins a, c, d and e in addition to electrolytes. I think the strongest contributor to flavor is the turmeric, which also colors the water when the tablet has dissolved:

I traveled a lot in the last couple of weeks and of course I stored a tube in my carry-on bag to drink on the airplane to NYC as well as on the road with my kids. We used one of the empty tubes to hold crayons in the car:
Then, of course, sickness hit my kids' school. My daughter brought home the dreaded flyer from the school nurse. My son woke up and vomited one day and you can bet I was chugging Nuun Immunity the whole day while home with him (in between games of princess Yahtzee).
Despite sick kids, traveling, having a crazy busy month and running all of the miles, I haven't gotten sick! I am crediting the Nuun Immunity for sure. I already ordered my third set of both flavors!
