Nucleotides are the most basic building blocks of life!!
Be in control of your health!
Genetic Information (DNA) is stored in the nucleus of every cell in our bodies. The smallest basic structural components that make up our DNA are Nucleotides. Nucleotides are micronutrients that consists of a nitrogen-containing base, a sugar and a phosphate group. Nucleotides are divided into two groups, called purines (A and G) and pyrimidines (T, C & U).
Apart from being the "building blocks of life", nucleotides are also very important for energy transfer, production of protein, essential in DNA repair and duplication, mucosal repair, mediation of hormone signals, immune function and they are involved in almost all activities within the cell.
