RNA is a comprehensive way of approaching nutrition. It goes above and beyond with its examination of the body’s metabolic needs and sets the standard for their fulfilment. With thousands of chemical reactions happening at any one time, your body is no simple machine. It demands a vast number of nutrients to carry out these processes and function at its best.
Dr Bruce Ames’s realised this point with his Triage theory, proposing that the body requires a much more diverse range of nutrients than the traditional 30 essential micronutrients to function at its best. He suggests that when the body is deficient in a micronutrient, it will prioritise processes in the body required for short term survival, and proteins and enzymes involved in long term health will lose out on the allocation of nutrients. Dr Bruce Ames references 41 different micronutrients that have important functions in our overall health.
Looking at this theory through the scope of health and performance, we realised that if the body is deficient in nutrients, it will be starved of the raw ingredients it needs to function during exercise. We took Bruce Ames’s theory and expanded on it even more, adopting an obsessive and meticulous approach to giving the body everything it needs to perform. Using a science-based research process, our aim is to find any and all nutrients that impact performance and provide them through the highest quality products and ingredients. This forms the basis of RNA.
We now use RNA to increase the overall nutritional values of our products across a broad spectrum of 80+ nutrients, from macronutrients, micronutrients, pre and post biotics to a wide range of phytonutrients. We relentlessly pursue the latest advancements in health and nutrition, updating our RNA index as we discover new beneficial ingredients. This approach helps us provide your body with the nutrients it naturally seeks in its pursuit of optimising metabolic performance and maximising your potential.
