Nutrition for your DNA

Nutrition for your DNA

Cells are the basic building blocks of all living things. The human body is composed of trillions of cells. They provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions. 

The cells in our bodies live for anything from a few hours, in the case of certain types of white blood cells, to a few weeks, for skin cells, to many decades, in the case of most brain cells. But while most cells are regenerated, the processes involved become progressively unreliable over time. In particular, the DNA carrying the instructions for cell processes becomes damaged, eventually preventing any more cell division. The result is the increasing level of decrepitude we call ageing.

The process of cell replication is facilitated by basic structural units called Nucleotides. 

What are nucleotides?

Nucleotides are found in all living material and our body can make use of nucleotides from the food we eat. Our body also makes its own nucleotides, and recycled Nucleotides from dying tissue in the body.

They have a very diverse set of functions, such as cell creation, the storage and processing of genetic information, protein building, and the generation of energy cells. Every cell in the human body has more than 6 billion nucleotides. 

Due to constant stress levels, elevated metabolic rates, lack of sleep or rest and the exclusion of foods rich in nucleotides from our diets, such as organ meat, nucleotides are in short supply. This leads to slower cell division and replacement of damaged tissues. 

For optimal functioning on a cellular level a nucleotide supplement is recommended. 

Why a nucleotide supplement?

Nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA and RNA. Nucleotides can be made by the body or extracted from food. The body cannot always produce enough nucleotides to meet all needs. Tissues that are frequently replaced like the tissue in the gut lining, divide quickly or require repairs and therefore use more nucleotides. When the need for nucleotides increases, the body relies more on nucleotides from food.
Organic meats are a good source of nucleotides. If you want to increase your nucleotide intake without eating organic meat, you can take a nucleotide supplement.

Why Nutri-Tide?

Nutri-Tide nucleotides, used in Nucleocell Nutrition’s supplements, contain all five nucleotides from which DNA and RNA are made: guanosine (G), cytidine (C), adenosine (A), thymidine (T), uridine (U). The nucleotides are isolated from food products, such as yeast.
Inositol and maltodextrin are the carriers of the nucleotides and each have their own advantages.
Nutri-Tide nucleotides are derived from food products that do not contain gluten or lactose. Due to careful purification, the end product contains no traces of yeast. Nutri-Tide nucleotides are of non-animal origin and therefore suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The production process is Kosher and Halal certified.

Nutri-Tide nucleotides are: 

  • A balanced mix of all five nucleotides. 
  • Nucleotides from food products.
  • Free from lactose, gluten and traces of yeast.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Kosher and Halal certified.
  • All nucleotides in one supplement.
