"Nucleotides provide a totally unique way of resolving gut issues- by helping the gut to function normally. Indeed, by addressing shortages, they ensure that the gut can be repaired properly, and that the gut lining can remain healthy. Nucleotides have been shown to work synergistically with other natural products, like probiotics or prebiotics, and do not interfere with medication."
