All protein-based extracts work on the cell’s DNA level
Nucleotide products from SWANSON, BLUEBONNET or IMUREGEN among others are nucleotide supplements. Like all other protein-based extracts, it works on the DNA level. Naturally, it is not to say it alters the DNA of a mammal. It simply means it can work from within a cell structure much like how others work. What it does is to help the body repair itself by supplying proteins (nucleotide protein) that the cell, muscle, or nerve needs.
The Nucleotide function
Nucleotide plays a central role in life-form metabolism at the fundamental, cellular level. They carry packets of chemical energy—in the form of the nucleoside triphosphates ATP, GTP, CTP, and UTP—throughout the cell to the many cellular functions that demand energy, which include synthesizing amino acids, proteins and cell membranes and parts; moving the cell and moving cell parts, both internally and intercellularly; dividing the cell . In addition, nucleotides participate in cell signaling. (Wikipedia)
Popular Nucleotide products
NUCLEOTIDE Supplements are recommended from brain function and cellular repair. To date, there several brands in the market you can choose from: Invite Nucleotide Complex, Swanson, Grassfed, Imuregen, Quantum, Blue Bonnet, Premier, Essential, Lipo Life, and Nucleo Immune.
In 2015, Tomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich, And Aziz Sancar won the 2015 Nobel Prize In Chemistry For DNA Repair. Lindahl, Modrich, and Sancar worked out how the body performs three types of DNA repair: excising damaged DNA bases, excising damaged nucleotides, and fixing mismatched base pairs.

Our genetic material is constantly being damaged. “As a rough estimate, there are 10,000 DNA lesions per day per cell,” says Thomas Carell, who studies DNA repair at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. However, taking a nucleotide supplement will NOT repair the damage. Still beneficial, protein derived from these types of supplements can provide nutrition that damaged cells need.
