People take RNA and DNA for conditions such as athletic performance, stomach and intestine problems, immune system problems, aging, and many others, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
How does it work ?
Uses & Effectiveness
Insufficient Evidence for
- Athletic performance. Early research shows that taking RNA and DNA compounds under the tongue can help athletes to exercise at a high intensity for longer. Taking RNA and DNA compounds by mouth along with things like protein compounds and B vitamins helps some athletes to recover faster after hard exercise.
- Burns. Early research suggests that taking RNA and DNA by mouth in the hospital doesn't help people to recover from burns any more than regular nutritional formulas.
- A long-term disorder of the large intestines that causes stomach pain (irritable bowel syndrome or IBS).
- Alzheimer's disease.
- Decreased sex drive.
- Improving memory.
- Infection after surgery.
- Sagging skin.
- Other conditions.
When given as a shot: RNA is POSSIBLY SAFE when injected under the skin. Injections of RNA can cause itching, redness, and swelling at the injection site.
Special Precautions and Warnings
When given as a shot: RNA is POSSIBLY SAFE when injected under the skin. Injections of RNA can cause itching, redness, and swelling at the injection site. Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It might be UNSAFE to take RNA and DNA as a supplement if you are pregnant. Some evidence suggests that DNA might cross the placenta and cause birth defects.
There isn't enough reliable information to know if RNA and DNA are safe to use when breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Children: Infant formulas that contain RNA or DNA compounds are LIKELY SAFE for children during the first 12 months of life.
