Lifestyle Vitamins are happy to stock innovative natural health products from Nucleotide Nutrition Ltd, a company that has been working hard on research and development for over twenty years. This forward-thinking company, based at the Daresbury Innovation Centre in Cheshire, has developed an impressive line of evidence-based food supplements including IntestAid®IB, NuCell®IM, Nutri-Tide NT, and nnnSPORT X-Cell.
Nucleotide Nutrition take their inspiration from the body's natural biological processes, producing supplements from natural ingredients to help support the body in maintaining optimal health. The products are backed by clinical studies and comprehensive research and development, and are sourced sustainably and ethically.
What are Nucleotides?
At the heart of Nucleotide Nutrition's supplements is their understanding of the importance of dietary nucleotides, which are the building blocks of nucleic acids. Nucleotides are made up of three molecules: a nitrogenous base, a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose), and at least one phosphate group.
The best-known nucleotides are ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which are vital for health as they work together to form what amounts to an instruction manual for the growth of all healthy new cells.
Dietary nucleotides play an important role in the health and growth of cells that line the digestive system, as well as certain types of immune system cells, and can also feed probiotics (the good bacteria) in the intestines. Unfortunately, modern diets tend to be low in nucleotides, largely because they often include high levels of processed foods and carbohydrates. Foods such as offal, tofu, sprouts, broccoli, and mushrooms contain nucleotides, but as these are not common dietary components for many people, a nucleotide deficiency is increasingly suspected as a factor in poor health.
The development of Nutri-tide™
The exclusive Nutri-tide™ nucleotide nutritional formula is the brainchild of product development specialist and now CEO & Technical Director, Rachel Hoyle, Nucleotide Nutrition’s Scientific Advisory Board, and ProBio AG, the pioneering Swiss nucleotide producers.
Nucleotide Nutrition products are produced by ProBio AG from natural sources of yeast from the food industry, using only natural purification and extraction processes. Unlike crude RNA yeast extracts, which the body struggles to break down to allow nucleotide absorption, Nutri-tide™ nucleotide nutritional formula offers superior absorption for efficient, natural cellular support.
Nutri-tide®NT was designed with these considerations in mind, based on studies of food intake and nutrient availability. This unique, scientifically blended, proprietary formula, offers a balance of purified pyrimidine and purine nucleotides derived from food-grade Saccharomyces cerevisae (yeast) to help support good health at a cellular level. Nutri-tide®NT also includes D-ribose, betaine and inositol, is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, Kosher and Halal diets and has been rigorously tested to ensure that it is free of gluten, yeast, and lactose.
The Nucleotide Nutrition team includes leading dietitians, nutritionists, immunologists, medical researchers, and alternative practitioners, and has received government backing for clinical research and development.
Professor Christine Dancey is part of this team, and is an expert in Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Chronic Health issues. Professor Dancey conducted the IntestAid®IB IBS symptoms clinical trial, while IBS and Dietetic Expert, Nigel Denby, RD, is a leading expert on nucleotide nutrition who produced the IBS and DIET Factsheet which is available free from the company.
IntestAid®IB offers a clinically studied natural approach to supporting long-term bowel health, and IntestAid®IB builds on the Nutri-tide®NT formula.
This supplement features concentrated extracts of RNA nucleotides, and amino acids L-methionine, L-glutamine, and L-lysine to help promote gastrointestinal healing, repair, as well as healthy immune function. Essential B vitamins, B2, B5, Folic acid, and biotin, are also included for digestive support.
IntestAid®IB is ideal for supporting a favourable microbiome (i.e. gut bacteria) and overall gastrointestinal tract health, especially when taken with a good quality probiotic and is designed to encourage efficient colon function and offer support for bowel urgency issues that may be associated with IBS.
NuCell®IM is a unique food supplement featuring Nutri-tide™ nucleotide nutritional formula and vitamins and amino acids specifically chosen for their role in maintaining immune system health. These nutrients support the regeneration of the white blood cells that comprise a large part of the immune system. As such, NuCell®IM offers benefits for immune function, vitality and well-being, and for digestion and nutrient absorption.
nnnSPORT X-Cell from Nucleotide Nutrition is an innovative sports supplement in powder form that helps support the health and activity of muscle cells. This formula features 540 mg of standardised 5’-Ribonucleotides pyrimidine and purine, along with essential nutrients for musculoskeletal function These include inositol, biotin, folic acid, calcium D-Pantothenate (vitamin B5), methylcobalamin (active vitamin B12), and L-Lysine, as well as the essential antioxidant due ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and d-alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E).
Nucleotide Nutrition's innovative formulas offer targeted natural support for good health, with Nutri-tide™ nucleotide nutritional formula ensuring superior availability of nucleotides when they are most needed by the body.
