There is a direct relationship between longevity and the ability to repair DNA. Nucleotides are the sub-units from which the body creates DNA and RNA. Your body may or may not be able to create nucleotides (depending on your age and other factors), and so it is good to get nucleotides from your diet. Foods providing nucleotides include breast milk, sardines, brewer’s yeast, anchovies, mackerel, lentils, most beans, animal liver, oysters, chlorella algae and spirulina algae.
Benefits from eating nucleotides include:
aging process slows
skin more elastic
increased ability of body to heal, shorter healing time, shorter hospital stays
effect of antioxidants is enhanced
better response and efficiency of immune system, dramatically increased ability to fight infections
increased cellular metabolism and energy
better memory, reduced senility
Nucleotides are found not only in supplements, but in certain foods such as brewers yeast, sardines, seafood, radishes, asparagus, mushrooms and onions.
Consider adding nucleotides to your diet if you need an immune or energy boost.
