Nucleo benefits for Diabetics

Rapid healing of cellulitis in Type 2 diabetic

I am a 35 year old type 2 diabetic and no stranger to cellulites type infections of my legs. After recently sustaining another injury a friend suggested I give Nucleo® a try. I have to say I was surprised with the result. Besides having sustained energy every day the wound on my leg definitely healed faster

Weight loss in a Type 1 diabetic

A Type 1 diabetic in Ermelo, South Africa recently started using Nucleo®. She contacted me after 2 months of use totally perplexed at her results. She had managed to drop two dress sizes in a mere two month period! She also had to visit her attending physician to lower her insulin dose because she didn’t need as much anymore.

Type 2 travelling businessman controlling better

I am a 46 year old Type 2 diabetic. My average glucose readings in the morning were 6,8 – 7,8 mmol/l (261 – 300 mg/dl). After using Nucleo® for a week my morning levels dropped to 5,4 – 5,8 mmol/l (207 – 223 mg/dl) and these levels have stabilized ever since. I definitely also have more energy on a day to day basis and I find it easier to keep my weight stable. Another great plus for me whilst taking Nucleo® is that an irritable bowel problem that has been plaguing me for years is something of the past. 100% gone!

Pensioner with diabetes and high blood pressure

I am a pensioner with high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes. I have boundless energy only after the first week and a half of using Nucleo®. The impact is so tangible that I have taken to swimming twice a day again and doing a little more exercise.

Weight loss in first week of using Nucleo®

I tried something different with a female Type 2 diabetic living in Johannesburg. I gave her one week’s worth of proper Nucleo® and one week’s worth of a corn based placebo product that does not contain any of the active ingredients of Nucleo®.

After using Nucleo® for one week she reported 0,5 kg of weight loss without changing her diet or medication. After the week on the placebo she had gained 0,5 kg.

Type 1 diabetes and Nucleo®

I am a 29 year old, pregnant Type 1 diabetic and I have replaced nearly all the supplements I take on a day to day basis with Nucleo® including those for pregnancy. One of the major ways in which Nucleo® has helped me is with constipation. In the past this was something that I battled with but it has improved drastically. The other benefit that I have noticed is that although many of my friends and relatives fell ill during this last change of season I skimmed through without any problem.

Hi there

 I am not sure if you have heard about a product called Nucleo yet? I came across it about two years ago and have since had the wonderful privilege of working more closely with the developer of the product, Dr Anton Van Rensburg. Dr Anton is the most compassionate and nutrition-smart doctor I know!

He started a project 7 years ago to develop a highly fortified supplemental food with the aim of it being an ideal adjuvant for people with chronic illnesses like cancer, diabetes, HIV and auto-immune diseases. He decided on 43 specialised food ingredients and it took him several years to perfect the formula. The product is called Nucleo® and has been in use across Southern Africa for the past 4 years in a variety of settings including some pharmacies and doctors’ practices. Although the initial aim was chronic illness Nucleo® is also used by pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, athletes and anybody who feels they need more from their food.

I personally did a comparison of Nucleo with about 10 other vitamin supplements and in terms of ingredient spectrum and concentrations, it really is superior. I also have had personal experiences with the immune boosting properties of Nucleo and it seems to really work well!

I know that Dr Anton will be doing some marketing of the product to dieticians and I just thought I would let you know firsthand, as a colleague, that I really think the product is good!


Stay healthy and well!

Hi to all my fellow dietician colleagues

I have come across a wonderful supplement called NUCLEO! Honestly, it is superb and I have actually been part of programs where the supplement is used in conjunction with healthy diet and exercise. The results are wonderful for diseases of lifestyle, chronic fatigue syndrome, fertility, stress, burn out, concentration, productivity, HIV, inflammatory conditions, mood disorders, etc…

As a dietician I always like to see evidence based research and case studies…. Nucleo is scientific and I know could be quite beneficial to our patients.

Kindest regards,
