Nupro is a natural product obtained from a yeast, that contains nucleotides in the first place, and is also a wealthy source of proteins (highly digestible and instrumental to better performances) and of vitamins, minerals, inositol, glutamate and free amino acids.
- Nucleotides are essential for tissue growth, through the replication and regeneration of body cells along the various stages of life. In fact, in order to continue living, an organism must create new cells at least as fast as its cells die (mortality rate), while cell generation in a growing organism (like that of a puppy) needs to be much faster. Maternal milk has a high content in nucleotides.
- They are the “bricks” building up the DNA and RNA, the nucleic acids that carry genetic information, and are involved, together with other molecules, in almost all the vital activities of a cell.
- In particular, their positive action on the intestine reflects into elongation of the villi, replication of enterocytes and repair of intestinal walls. All these factors can reduce intestinal disorders thanks to the increase of the “good” flora, especially Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria. Nucleotides have also effects on the immune system, stimulating the cellular and humoral immune response.
- They are semi-essential nutrients in situations of environmental stress, change of season, low appetite, post-disease recovery, old age, diarrhoea or malabsorption; in all these cases your pet’s nucleotide requirements increase enormously.
