Science

nuBound was developed based on research showing benefits to your immune system from adding nucleotides to your diet. A strong immune system is directly connected to recovery from exercise.
 
nuBound developed its patent-pending, proprietary formulation through rigorous testing and the application of the latest scientific research.  Here are some of the benefits for athletes from using nuBound: 
 
  • Decreased cortisol: Cortisol is a stress hormone with catabolic effects (ie, it breaks down muscle tissue). Lower levels of cortisol mean less tissue damage during training and therefore a faster recovery.
  • Increased immunoglobulin A: Immunoglobulin A is an antibody found in mucus membranes and the blood that provides a frontline defense against colds and flu. Higher levels indicate a strengthened immune system.
  • Increased natural killer cell (NK cell) count & activity: Natural killer cells are specialized white blood cells that target and kill virally infected cells as part of the innate immune system. Higher levels indicate a strengthened immune system.
  • Increased ‘run time to exhaustion’: Treadmill tests (using increasing speed from 8 to 18 km/hr) showed a 5% increase in run time to exhaustion, demonstrating improved performance.
