CHESTNUT HILL, MA—Nu Science Labs Inc., an innovative sports nutrition company and the developer of the nuBound nucleotide sports recovery supplement, announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent 10,271,570 covering the combination of prebiotics and nucleotides in a nutritional supplement to enhance the microbiome and improve immune function.
“Issuance of this patent extends the leadership of Nu Science Labs Inc. in the field of nucleotide supplementation by adding prebiotics, which provide a synergistic benefit that helps to enhance the gut microbiome,” said Mark Connell, Founder and CEO, Nu Science Labs Inc. “This leads to better immune performance, which translates into better recovery for athletes.”
Nu Science Labs Inc. pioneered the combined use of prebiotics and nucleotides by formulating their nuBound nucleotide sports recovery supplement to include a therapeutic dose of prebiotics. The combination of these ingredients provides support for improvement of the gut microbiome, which consists of an estimated 40 trillion bacterial cells (compared to the estimated 30 trillion cells comprising the average human body). The composition of these different microbial communities changes in response to food sources available and these modifications exert a profound influence on human health and a direct influence on the immune system.
Prebiotics are non-digestible (by humans) food ingredients that can be broken down by bacteria in the gut. They are distinct from probiotics, which are live cultures of organisms. The combination of prebiotics and nucleotides provides unique support for a healthy gut microbiome.
Athletes benefit from an enhanced microbiome, and the strengthening of their immune system, because it counteracts the immunosuppressive effect of strenuous exercise.
In addition to this newly issued patent, Nu Science Labs Inc. holds U.S. Patent 10,016,472 (mitigating the negative effects of resistance exercise using nucleotides) and has multiple additional patents filed on this and related technologies.
