Nucleo is a nutritional superfood which combines 43 of the most essential and powerful natural nutrients known to man, in a nutritionally complete, fast absorbing, ready to eat, meal-in-a-shake with everything you need to fortify your immune system, providing sustained energy and concentration on a daily basis.
Our immune system is our first line of defense
Consider that the intestine is producing 80% of the immune system’s antibodies. And it forms the primary barrier between the blood stream and the outside world. So a healthy intestine plays an important role in preventing chronic illnesses like heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, allergies, tuberculosis and other autoimmune diseases.
Mal-absorption is caused by the intestine’s inability to absorb healthy nutrients, due to the presence of too much processed foods (high sugar foods) and the consumption of certain medications that alter the lining of the intestine.
Therefore Nucleo has been formulated to recover, heal and pamper the intestine.
Nucleo based on Science
The ingredients included in Nucleo are based on many years of research and lab testing by hundreds of specialists and nutritionists from all over the world. Each natural supplement was carefully selected because of its own individual scientific track record in promoting immunity and wellness. There are more than 150 scientific references, including clinical trials in humans, which support the use of the ingredients in Nucleo.
Nucleo applies several innovative, nutritional techniques to support and restore the intestine and the immune system.
The GI of Nucleo has been tested by the GI Foundation of South Africa and is certified as ’low’ (below 55). The actual average GI score attained in human studies with Nucleo was 36, which is similar to legumes like chick peas and kidney beans. You can imagine the impact on sustained energy release that supports stable blood glucose levels and reduces fatigue. Great advantage for endurance athletes or people struggling with diabetes.
This exceptional health and energy drink contains no GMO, no sugar, no gluten, no dairy, no added sucrose, no chemical preservatives, no artificial colourants or flavourants. Nucleo is preserved naturally with vitamin E and use natural colourants.
It is fact that nutrients in a food delivery platform absorb significantly better than nutrients in a capsule or tablet. Therefore the absorption of the nutrients in Nucleo is further enhanced by the body recognising the familiar soya protein and maize as the delivery platform for these nutrients.
Soya protein has been lauded for its exceptional quality and health benefits. However soya oil is regarded as a weak oil which means it is susceptible to rancidity, especially after being heated during the cooking process. This makes full soya unsuitable as a safe delivery platform due to potential toxicity.
So for Nucleo’s purpose the soya protein was separated from the soya oil and used as a purified protein extract in combination with RSPO-certified sustainable palm oil.
The need for vitamin and mineral supplementation in human beings cannot be overstated. These essential compounds play a role in every system of the body and without them life cannot exist. Even in more recent human trials vitamins and minerals are proving to be indispensable in the fight against a variety of chronic diseases and of course, malnutrition. However, the secret lies in ensuring that the delivery platform does in fact facilitate maximum absorption of the supplements.

Absorption Fact: Nucleo contains a tailor-made mineral mix of which more than half of the minerals are bound to amino acids. The reason for this is because ‘amino acid chelated’ minerals have significantly increased absorption.
Nucleo contains Pre-biotics, the food for the good intestinal bacteria (pro-biotics), which play an essential role in the maintenance of the immune system and significantly enhance the absorption of minerals.
Nucleo contains digestive enzymes that start digesting the product on contact with water, which increases the ease of digestion and absorption in the intestine.
Nucleo assists the body’s defences against harmful bacteria and viruses with bovine colostrum, a powerful anti-viral supplement which contains pure antibodies and immune supporting compounds. It is a tremendous support against diarrhoea.
Nucleo contains actual fish oil which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This oil is powdered through a novel cold nano encapsulation process to protect the integrity of the fatty acids! It is imported from a reputable Swiss company.
Omega-3 Fact: Omega-3 fatty acids support brain/intellectual development in children and maintain brain functioning and cardiovascular health in adults. Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in the normal development of the unborn baby and during the first year of life.
Nucleo employs its own unique amino acid blend to ensure all essential amino acids are present and to further enhance the absorption of nutrients over and above the natural plant based amino acids found in the soya and spirulina. Note Nucleo contains all the amino acids found in weigh protein, only without any sugar.
Spirulina has featured in various scientific studies as a novel solution for the global problem of malnourishment and supports the nutritional needs of the human body like few other natural supplements. It has anti-viral potential against a wide variety of viruses.
Both the Chocoate and Vanilla Nucleo contains a full treatment dosage of Spirulina in EVERY 50g serving.
Nucleo contains natural cacao in its chocolate flavour and nature identical vanilla and strawberry flavourants as well as natural colourants from flowers and plants such as beetroot.
Nucleo contains lecithin, which is scientifically proven to aid in memory function and learning.
