IntestAid®IB – Dietary information
Many of our product development principles come from our belief that a good diet is paramount to good health.
Our foods studies and research are all about furthering the understanding of what diets have nutrient deficiencies.
The IntestAid®IB ‘Nutritional & Lifestyle Challenge’ – join in today
At Nucleotide Nutrition we are extremely passionate about helping people maintain long-term bowel health. Our dietitians and nutritionist have devised the IntestAid®IB ‘Nutritional & Lifestyle Challenge’ to help you achieve this.
A highly personalised ‘tool kit’ containing lifestyle and dietary advice tailored especially for you which, when followed alongside the use of IntestAid®IB, will help to provide a natural approach to long-term intestinal balance and bowel health.
It is not possible to provide one set of advice that suits everyone since one person’s ‘healthy’ diet, could be decidedly unhealthy to someone else. With that in mind we have developed a concise application questionnaire that you can download below. Simply complete the application questionnaire and return it to us by fax or using the Free Post address supplied. Our experts will use your information to provide you with a highly personalised lifestyle and dietary plan to use alongside IntestAid®IB to help you achieve long-term bowel health.

If you have problems downloading the PDF or would prefer to receive your application form by post Contact us using our on-site contact form (making sure to include your full address details).
Your diet and nucleotides
The body needs nucleotides from food sources i.e. your diet, in order meet the demand the body has for building new cells and repairing tissue. In the case of bowel health, the cells that have the greatest need for a ready available dietary source of all 5 different types of nucleotides are the gut lining cells and the ‘good’ bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract.
The richest source of dietary nucleotides are found in foods that are involved in fast growth or high metabolic activity. An extensive Anglo-Swiss food survey, which involved analysing over 100 food items, found the following food items to contain the best sources of dietary nucleotides:
Very rich source of dietary nucleotides
Offal: tripe, kidney, liver
Yeast Extract: Marmite (you would need to spread it thickly)
Good source of dietary nucleotides
Lean meat: ham, steak, chicken
Oily Fish: mackerel
Average source of dietary nucleotides
Fish: white fish, tinned tuna
Shell Fish: shrimps
Vegetarian protein: Quorn, tofu, soya milk
Sprouts: watercress, alfafa (you would need big portions)
People don’t regularly (if at all) eat foods which contain the richest sources of nucleotides because a lot of these foods may be: unpalatable to them; out of favour; or just not part of the typical modern UK diet. Our current diets are now quite different in many ways to those of our grandparents.

Our dietary research
Our research so far shows that IntestAid®IB supports long-term bowel health. It does this by supplying the body with all 5 specific nucleotides (Nutri-tide™ nucleotide nutritional formula) required to build cells and replenish the repair processes. The nucleotides in Intestaid®IB are biologically available (ready to use) by the gut ling cells and ‘good’ bacteria.
Our scientists and dietitians are actively researching the implications of dietary deficiencies in nucleotides. The question is: Could the decline in intake of offal in today’s diets be implicated in ‘modern’ diseases?
Take a look at the independent website www.nucleotides4health.org where you can read more about the exciting research that is taking place in the scientific areas of nucleotides and nutrition.
