Investigations in animals showed that the supplementation of nucleotides in the diet has effects on many tissues; in particular, the intestine, the liver, the immune system and the lipid metabolism are positively involved.
In Dogs: nucleotides improve biological markers of immune response and help to an improved overall health status. This is particularly valid in puppies. Supplementation with nucleotides could help the puppy during critical moments such as growth. In Cats: nucleotides improve biological markers of immune response in adults, particularly increasing phagocytic activity
In Monogastric animals: dietary nucleotides may affect different aspects of body function in single-stomached animals, including intestinal function, immune response, the composition of the intestinal microbiota, liver function and morphology.
