Let me start by saying the Naked Nutrition Nakedade is one of the funniest product names I’ve ever come across. Immediately, I was drawn to it based on the name alone.
As runners, electrolytes are important. I am always looking for new products to try.
About the Brand Naked Nutrition:
The vision of Naked Nutrition is to support health and fitness goals by sourcing premium ingredients, using as few ingredients as possible, and being transparent about them. That way, you know exactly what is going into your body. The new Naked Nutrition Naked Shakes are no different!

- No artificial sweeteners
- Vegan and certified gluten-free
- No artificial sweeteners, flavors, or colors
About the Naked Nutrition Nakedade:
Nakedade starts with “palatinose,” which is a low glycemic carbohydrate sourced from sugar beets. During the manufacturing process, the sucrose in the sugar beets is isolated, which leaves both glucose and fructose behind. At Naked Nutrition, they are committed to shortening the steps between the farm and you (the consumer).
So what is different about the Naked Nutrition Nakedade?
Each stick has 60 calories. If you are looking for an electrolyte beverage with calories, this is a good option.
My experience with Naked Nutrition Nakedade:
The packets for Naked Nutrition Nakedade are a lot bigger than most other brands. There is more substance and powder to them. Many similar electrolyte sticks are lower calorie or lower sugar, which is good in some settings, but in running, you often need more calories while out (I know I perform better with them).
I was curious about how it would taste. Right out of the package, it’s bright blue, mixes well, and you aren’t left with chunks of powder or a gritty taste. The blueberry lemonade might taste sweeter than your expecting. I’ve had several products with lemonade and their name, and they are usually more tart than I expect.
The blueberry lemonade was a lot sweeter than I expected! Thankfully because tart lemonade does not taste good to me while running (I don’t love thick lemon-lime anything while running). It’s not “crazy sweet,” so you don’t feel like you’re consuming raw sugar either. As far as lemonade products go, I think it’s one of the better tasting products out there.
For 16 packets, the cost is $24.
Naked Nutrition Nakedade Conclusion:
I like the Naked Nutrition Nakedade (and no, not for the name). If you are looking for an electrolyte mix with calories, tastes good and is easily digestible, this is a great option.
