Nucleotides are compounds or molecules consisting of a nucleoside linked to a phosphate group. They form the basic structural unit of nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA. There are five types of nucleotides that include adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G), uracil (U) and cytosine (C). They are essential in all living organisms and play a critical role in metabolism and energy. Nucleotides are naturally found in meats, vegetables, and fruits. Foods having high cell density contain the highest nucleotide levels such as fish, seeds and organ meats. They are also consumed in supplement form to meet the body's needs.
