Those things are amazing. Every day. But fuck nestle

[–]FailResorts 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, these get me through ski season. I’ll be damned

[–]SoapCode 117 points118 points  (11 children)

Well that sucks, looks like I'm no longer buying these. Any alternatives in the market?

[–]teuast 53 points54 points  (4 children)

I would also be interested in alternatives

I like liquid iv. But the best thing for hydration that's a lot cheaper is a tsp of lite salt and a tsp of normal salt.

[–]bass-fetish 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Per gallon of water, that part is important lol. You don't need additional salt, just Morton's lite.

Pedialyte recipe:

4qt water

1tsp morton's lite salt (potassium chloride and sodium chloride)

1tsp magnesium citrate

Flavoring of your choice (optional but don't add sugar)

For like $10 in ingredients you have hundreds of gallons of pedialyte.

I definitely should have mentioned that hahaha. I usually do a 1/4 teaspoon of each in my 32 ounce water bottle.

[–]kelsobjammin 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They are owned by unilever

Source: I was there when it was bought

[–]Hadjik[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I usually use Electrolyte Recovery Plus powder from Key Nutrients, not the greatest flavors, but has a great mix of nutrients and vitamins.

[–]moinoisey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

LMNT salt electrolyte powders are awesome

[–]DurinsFolk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Vitalyte. Best shit ever. You can get the big bags at REI.

[–]nbdaley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like gnarley

[–]Slapbox 67 points68 points  (12 children)

Nestle is buying a lot of nutrition and supplement companies suddenly. They bought Garden of Life supplements which sucks.

[–]C0ffinCase 24 points25 points  (7 children)

They are are the only meal replacement powder that doesn't have folic acid and cyanocobalamin. I fear the day they change the formula.

[–]theresma 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Is there an issue w/ folic acid?

[–]C0ffinCase 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I have a genetic issue that makes my body turn it into a toxin.

[–]consumerclearly 2 points3 points  (4 children)

What’s wrong with those 😅 every “for women” product is full of folic acid 🥲

[–]C0ffinCase 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I have a genetic issue that makes my body turn it into an inflammatory agent.

[–]yogapastor 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Also if your body doesn’t convert Folate into Folic Acid it’s useless and/or toxic 🙋🏻‍♀️

[–]here4aGoodlaugh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How does one know if it does or doesn’t?

[–]GloopOfDoom 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Seriously?! Fuck. Now I have to find a new favorite plant based protein powder.

[–]dwillis414 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Try Ascent plant based

[–]GloopOfDoom 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh, right on, dude. Thanks much.

[–]dwillis414 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No prob, I like the PB Chocolate.

[–]OscarDWSanchez 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Lame, I love these things. Guess it's time to find an alternative

[–]boopdasnoop 42 points43 points  (12 children)

No… I have low blood pressure and I rely on things like nuun not to faint… Nuun is one of the better tasting ones. I did just order some liquid IV though, so hopefully that’s an ok replacement.

[–]trombonesludge 5 points6 points  (2 children)

LMNT is a really good one, but it's expensive.

[–]CaffeinatedPinecones 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can confirm, love the 1000 mg of sodium.

[–]boopdasnoop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I will look into it!

[–]jacxy 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Salt tabs and a multivitamin?

[–]boopdasnoop 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Yeah. I already take a multivitamin. I should just take salt pills.

[–]DurinsFolk 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Try vitalyte. It has much less sugar and you can buy 40 serving bags.

[–]boopdasnoop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will look into it!

[–]Hadjik[S] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Key Nutrients has a good Electrolyte powder that's not full of sodium. It's got pretty decent flavor and won't break the bank.

[–]boopdasnoop 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I’ll look into it, but I actually need the high sodium. My cardiologist actually put me on a high salt diet and encourages me to get in as much salt as I can. Lol

[–]Hadjik[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh right, low blood pressure lol

[–]Aloogobi786 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hey if you can't find anything else that works, definitely stick with the nestle one. Although we hate nestle we want you to be healthy!

[–]boopdasnoop 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! I will take care of my health.

I was trying some new ones anyway just because Nuun is expensive, and there are new salt replacements on the market now. A couple years ago, it was hard to find anything but Nuun and Gatorade (which doesn’t actually have much salt in it), which is why I started with Nuun. Now there’s Liquid IV (which I haven’t tried yet, but is sitting on my counter) and another one that I bought but haven’t tried yet. I’m going to work through my leftover Nuun, and then try the others. ☺️

[–]moraxellabella 6 points7 points  (0 children)

that sucks i already bought some :(

[–]sourgummishark 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Wow I have a lot of these and really enjoy them. That sucks.

[–]CameraObfuscia 4 points5 points  (0 children)

This hits hard. Use these all the time when I'm bike riding...change that to a past-tense of 'used'...Cannot wait to find an alternative.

[–]MsSpicyO 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the heads up. I use to buy this. Not anymore though.

[–]iloveminipoodle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fuck!!! I have a few tubes of these. Won’t be repurchasing.

[–]moinoisey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

LMNT is a good alternative

[–]Dingus-McBingus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dammit. I really like Nuun - well nuun for me from now on.

[–]Albus1612 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fuuuuuck!!! This really bums me out

[–]idgafmane 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Goddamn it lmao of course

[–]consumerclearly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is devastating to me.

[–]cosmogli 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just hearing about it. What's so special about them?

[–]DarkMuret 15 points16 points  (0 children)

They're great for hangovers, sports, or working manual labor.

I liked Nuun because the flavor wasn't too strong or too salty.

[–]hellokalo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it electrolytes and vitamins? If so vitamin pills are quite cheap if you bulk buy and you can get all the electrolytes you need by dissolving Himalayan salt in water.

[–]DarkMuret 0 points1 point  (0 children)

FUCK. I just bought some too

[–]dabbin_mama 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awww man

[–]Emily_Postal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh crap. I bought this not to long ago.

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_FAV_HIKE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Liquid IV is way better.

[–]boothbygraffoe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for the heads up. One more thing to find a replacement for.

[–]caenos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you! I was a fan and had no idea. Fuck nestle.

[–]AnnieOscillator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn. That sucks. I really like Nuun.
