The Role of Each Nutrient in Nucleo

The Role of Each Ingredient in Nucleo

Nucleo® achieves the impossible

 Nucleo® is a nutritional meal which combines 43 of the most essential and powerful natural nutrients known to man, in a complete all-in-one super-shake – everything the body needs to fortify its immune system.

What did you consume today to protect your immune system and to pamper your intestine?

Considering that the intestine is producing 80% of the immune system’s antibodies and that it forms the primary barrier between the blood stream and the outside world, it is very safe to assume that immune deficiency due to mal-absorption does play a role in the global increase of chronic illnesses like heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, allergies, tuberculosis and other autoimmune diseases.

Mal-absorption is caused by the intestine’s inability to absorb healthy nutrients, due to the presence of too much processed foods (high GI foods) and the consumption of certain medications that alter the lining of the intestine.

Nucleo® based on Science

The ingredients in Nucleo® is the result of many years of research and lab testing by hundreds of specialists, scientists and nutritionists from all over the world. Each natural supplement was carefully selected because of its own individual scientific track record in promoting immunity and wellness. There are more than 150 scientific references, including clinical trials in humans, which support the use of the ingredients in Nucleo®.

Nucleo® applies twelve innovative, nutritional techniques to support and restore the intestine and the immune system:

  1. Low GI

The GI of Nucleo® has been tested by the GI Foundation of South Africa and is certified as ’low’ (below 55). The actual average GI score attained in human studies with Nucleo® was 36, which is similar to legumes like chick peas and kidney beans. You can imagine the impact on sustained energy release that supports stable blood glucose levels and reduces fatigue.

  1. Remove all artificial and negative influences

This exceptional health and energy drink contains no gluten, no dairy, no added sucrose, no chemical preservatives, no artificial colourants or flavourants. Nucleo® is preserved naturally with vitamin E and use natural colourants.

  1. Based in the most ideal food delivery platform for better absorption

It is fact that nutrients in a food delivery platform absorb significantly better than nutrients in a capsule or tablet. Therefore the absorption of the nutrients in Nucleo® is further enhanced by the body recognising the familiar Soya protein and maize as the delivery platform for these nutrients.

Soya protein has been lauded for its exceptional quality and health benefits. However soya oil is regarded as a weak oil which means it is susceptible to rancidity, especially after being heated during the cooking process. This makes full soya unsuitable as a safe delivery platform due to potential toxicity.

So for Nucleo®’s purpose the soya protein was separated from the soya oil and used as a purified protein extract in combination with palm oil.

4. Create a super vitamin and mineral delivery platform which ensures maximum absorption of all the essential vitamins and minerals

The need for vitamin and mineral supplementation in human beings cannot be overstated. These essential compounds play a role in every system of the body and without them life cannot exist. Even in more recent human trials vitamins and minerals are proving to be indispensable in the fight against a variety of chronic diseases and of course, malnutrition. However, the secret lies in ensuring that the delivery platform does in fact facilitate maximum absorption of the supplements.

12 vitamins: Nucleo® contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, D3, E, Folic acid and Biotin. Vitamin C is added as 200% of the adult RDA.

Absorption Fact: Fat soluble vitamins have a 4 fold increase in absorption when combined with food that contains fatty acids like Nucleo® does.

12 minerals: Minerals in Nucleo® are Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iodine, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc. Selenium is added as 100% of the adult RDA.

Absorption Fact: Nucleo® contains a tailor-made mineral mix of which more than half of the minerals are bound to amino acids. The reason for this is because ‘amino acid chelated’ minerals have significantly increased absorption.

  1. Support the good bacteria in the intestine

Nucleo® contains Pre-biotics, the food for the good intestinal bacteria (pro-biotics), which play an essential role in the maintenance of the immune system and significantly enhance the absorption of minerals.

  1. Taking it one step further to ensure immediate digestion

Nucleo® contains digestive enzymes that start digesting the product on contact with water, which increases the ease of digestion and absorption in the intestine.

  1. Defence against bad bacteria in the intestine with colostrum

Nucleo® assists the body’s defences against harmful bacteria and viruses with bovine colostrum, a powerful anti-viral supplement which contains pure antibodies and immune supporting compounds. It is a tremendous support against diarrhoea.

  1. Scientific technology to include powdered Omega-3 fatty acids

Nucleo® contains actual fish oil which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This oil is powdered through a novel cold process to protect the integrity of the fatty acids!

Omega-3 Fact: Omega-3 fatty acids support brain/intellectual development in children and maintain brain functioning and cardiovascular health in adults. Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in the normal development of the unborn baby and during the first year of life.

  1. Another intestine supporter - Amino acids

Nucleo® employs its own unique amino acid blend to ensure all essential amino acids are present and to further enhance the absorption of nutrients over and above the amino acids found in the soya and spirulina.

  1. A powerful anti-viral supplement - Spirulina

Spirulina has featured in various scientific studies as a novel solution for the global problem of malnourishment and supports the nutritional needs of the human body like few other natural supplements. It has anti-viral potential against a wide variety of viruses.

The value of Spirulina was greatly confirmed when out of a United Nations treaty IIMSAM was created in 2003 (‘Intergovernmental institution for the use of micro-algae spirulina against malnutrition’).

Nucleo® contains a full treatment dosage of Spirulina in EVERY 50g serving.

  1. No synthetic flavourants or colourants.

Nucleo® contains natural cacao in its chocolate flavour and nature identical vanilla and strawberry flavourants as well as natural colourants from flowers and plants such as beetroot.

  1. Additional support for the brain - Lecithin

Nucleo® contains lecithin, which is scientifically proven to aid in memory function and learning.

Manufacturing excellence

Nucleo® products can be manufactured in a standard food grade factory. However it is manufactured in a pharmaceutical grade facility that has registration with the South African Medicines Control Council.

So why drink Nucleo?

  • IT IS GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY, as it exponentially increases absorption of not only Nucleo, but also other healthy food you eat.
  • it provides food for development of the brain and helps with concentration,
  • it supports the intestine with direct benefit to the immune system,
  • it supports recovery after illness or injuries,
  • it provides sustained energy during times of stress,
  • it suppresses harmful viruses and stops diarrhoea,
  • it provides improvement in energy and quick recovery for endurance athletes such as tri-athletes, ‘Comrades Marathon’ runners, and ‘Ironman’ athletes.
