An Introduction

to DNA, RNA and Nucleotides

We are all familiar with the notion of communication. We use it constantly in our everyday lives. We use email, cell phones, telephones, letters, memos and faxes to communicate with our coworkers, our loved …

Nucleotides as Building Blocks

Nucleotides are the building blocks that make up genetic material. Nucleotides form the basis of both DNA and RNA. Most people are familiar with the concept of DNA as the genetic blueprint that is responsible for your individuality …

DNA, RNA and Protein

If you have ever watched the television show CSI you have seen how it is possible to use hair samples, saliva, blood and other bodily fluids from a crime scene to determine if an individual was at the scene of the crime (Lee, 2003). All of …

Nucleotides from Food

When we ingest a food such as sardines that have a high RNA content we are most likely eating all one hundred thousand to over one million different RNAs. Similarly, when we take a total RNA supplement, we are again absorbing all of …

RNA: a source of nitrogen, ribose, phosphorus and NUCLEOTIDES

Because nucleotides and RNA are normal components of the human diet, the body already has mechanisms in place to process, absorb and integrate these molecules into bodily tissues …

The Critical Need for Nucleotides

For years RNA was not considered to be an essential nutrient. It was thought that the body was able to make enough of its own RNA bases (purines and pyrimidines) that were needed to make new DNA …

Specific Critical Functions of Nucleotides in the Body

The number of references supporting the use of nucleotides is literally voluminous. A PubMed search of the term “nucleotides” pulls up 542,441 references. ‘Dietary nucleotide’ pulls up over 10,000 references and ‘RNA’ pulls up 872,347 …

Dr. Amy’s Choice of Nucleotide Blends

I have placed this section near the end of this book as I felt it was critical for anyone interested in this topic to have first read all of the literature supporting the use of nucleotide blends for a wide range of health conditions. I felt that it was important …

Why Consider Specific Nucleotide Blends

Differential nucleotide blends can positively affect blood sugar and weight loss as compared to alternate nucleotide blends which impact weight gain and developmental growth. (Fukumori, 2000 and Hu 2014 and Levine 1983). In addition, very …

The Safety of Nucleotide Blends

The safety of ingesting extremely large amounts of RNA has been studied. No adverse effects were noted from the use of 2 grams of RNA (hess) to a maximum of 4 grams eaten daily in adults (Rudolph, 1990). In addition nutritional support …

How RNA and DNA Nucleotides Work

Upon reflection, I believe that one of the short comings of my prior book on RNA was that I tried too hard to ascribe a mechanism of action to the use of RNA nucleotides. Rather than focusing on …

Different Types of RNA that contribute to RNA nucleotides

While RNA can break down into individual nucleotides in the body, there are specific roles played by the intact RNA molecules themselves. There are several types of RNAs made by the body …

Beyond Era I Medicine

Dr.Craig Venter is president of one of the firms that led the Human Genome Project. He is quoted as remarking that “We have only 300 unique genes in the human genome that are not in the mouse. This tells me genes can’t possibly explain all of …

Yes, Read the References

Ordinarily, I would not suggest reading through a list of references. The concept of doing so is reminiscent of ‘words of wisdom’ given to me and my sister by my mother when we were young. If my sister and I were bored on a rainy Saturday …
