What is Rna And Dna?

RNA (ribonucleic acid) and DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are chemical compounds that can be made by the body. They can also be made in a laboratory. RNA and DNA are used as medicine.

People take RNA/DNA combinations to improve memory and mental sharpness, treat or prevent Alzheimer's disease, treat depression, increase energy, tighten skin, increase sex drive, and counteract the effects of aging.

In the hospital, RNA is used in nutrition formulas that include omega-3 fatty acids and arginine. The combination is used for reducing the time needed for recovery after surgery, boosting the immune system's response, and improving outcomes for burn patients and intensive care patients.

As a shot, RNA is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, as well as hives and shingles.

Possibly Effective for...

  • Shortening recovery from surgery or illness. Supplementing the diet of patients undergoing major surgery with RNA, L-arginine, and eicosapentaenoic acid might improve recovery. Giving this combination around the time of surgery appears to boost immune response, reduce infections, improve wound healing, and shorten recovery time.

Possibly Ineffective for...

  • Burn injury recovery.

Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...

  • Alzheimer's disease.
  • Improving memory.
  • Depression.
  • Sagging skin.
  • Decreased sex drive.
  • Aging.
  • Eczema, when given as a shot.
  • Psoriasis, when given as a shot.
  • Hives, when given as a shot.
  • Shingles, when given as a shot.
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of RNA and DNA for these uses.

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
