Nucleotides – Great when you need them!

Nucleotides are a somewhat new product. They are the building blocks for DNA and RNA – the nucleic acids that are found in every cell of the body.
Nucleotides can promote an instantaneous boost in both immunity and energy. They are credited with helping our bodies repair themselves, creating new tissue, maintaining a strong immune system and conducting many other important functions. They are found in high concentrations in breast milk and are now routinely added to infant formula – but adults need them too.
Nucleotides are added to the diet of astronauts to help prevent the physical problems that occur as a result of space travel such as immune suppression, physical exhaustion and bone and muscle loss.
Nucleotides are stored in a limited quantity in your liver. Trauma, surgery, infection and other stresses can rapidly deplete the body’s stores of nucleotides. For people whose immune systems are impaired by conditions such as age, illness, chemotherapy, surgery and malnutrition, supplemental nucleotides can help the body have the materials it needs to repair itself. One study published in the Journal of Critical Care Medicine found that giving critically ill patients nucleotides reduced the overall length of their hospital stays by almost three days.
Ongoing research is looking at the role of nucleotides in inhibiting tumor cells, improving circulation and peripheral nerve function, and stimulating neurotransmitters production for memory and brain function. The RNA component of nucleotides acts like an electrolyte and helps the brain hold energy and perform functions such as balance and memory better.
On colds and flus, research shows that nucleotides can diminish the symptoms and duration of both. In research trials, nearly all patients on a therapeutic course of nucleotides reported significantly less discomfort associated with the symptoms of colds and flu and experienced a substantially accelerated recovery. I have used nucleotides in my practice on both acute and chronic immune issues with remarkable success.
Nucleotides are found not only in supplements, but in certain foods such as brewers yeast, sardines, seafood, radishes, asparagus, mushrooms and onions. These foods are recommended in anti-aging diets based on the research of Dr. Benjamin Frank who found that the people who followed his anti-aging diet of nucleotide rich foods seemed to literally reverse symptoms of aging – their wrinkles disappeared, their gray hair began turning dark and their skin appeared more youthful.
Consider adding nucleotides to your diet or supplement regimen if you need an immune or energy boost.

Note:  For those of you that understand muscle testing – one of the brain reflex points strengthens with nucleotides.  This can be helpful with tremors, muscle weakness, balance issues, etc.
