About Nucleon X
Naturecast calls Nucleon X a “cell regeneration enhancement” supplement that can restore perfect health by providing youthful vitality and energy, vibrant and healthy-looking skin, improved strength and flexibility, a boosted immune system, and more!
Backed by “published study after published study,” Nucleon X uses a proprietary formula of 14 different nutrients to increase your body’s production of adult stem cells by up to 70%, including blueberry, green tea, vitamin D3, blue-green algae powder, and resveratrol. This means you’ll be able to turn back the hands of time by just supplementing your diet with “very powerful all natural nutrients.”
Is your too-good-to-be-true alarm ringing yet? Is there really something to Nucleon X, or is your alarm spot-on accurate? That’s exactly what we’ll help you learn here.
But before we talk about Nucleon X itself, we need to unpack some of the concepts that the Nucleon X website talks about.
What Is Restorative Health? How About Regenerative Science?
Here’s how Merriam-Webster defines restorative: “Having the ability to make a person feel strong or healthy again.”
So, if we’re talking about a restorative supplement like Nucleon X, it’s supposedly formulated to regenerate your body. Specifically, it’s claimed to
- Increase skin elasticity
- Make your hair and nails grow faster and look healthier
- Increase your energy
- Boost immune system function
- Increase bone health and strength
Sure, this all sounds great, but will any of Nucleon X’s ingredients actually provide these benefits? We’ll get to that in a second, but first we need to talk about stem cells.
What Are Stem Cells? What’s the Difference Between Embryonic & Adult?
According to the National Institutes of Health:
“Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth. In addition, in many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.”
However, stem cells are differentiated into two categories: embryonic, which “can become all cell types of the body” and adult, which “are thought to be limited to differentiating into different cell types of their tissue of origin.” Another big difference is that embryonic stems cells are relatively easy to culture, while adult stem cells are not.
Nucleon X doesn’t actually contain any stem cells though, but it does contain ingredients the manufacturer claims will boost adult stem cell production by up to 70%. Is there any truth to this?
Will Nucleon X’s Ingredients Boost Adult Stem Cell Production?
There wasn’t a product label listed on the Nucleon X website, so we can’t know the exact dosages, and the only ingredients we were told about include:
Here’s the catch: While many of these ingredients contain essential vitamins and nutrients, there isn’t enough (or much of any, really) clinical evidence showing that they—or any other food-based ingredients—can increase the production of adult stem cells in humans. Period.
Because of this, it’s our opinion that Nucleon X’s claims don’t amount to much more than marketing hype. Is the supplement expensive, though?

Just who is Naturecast, anyway?
Who Makes Nucleon X?
Naturecast, based out of Coral Springs, FL, has been in business since 1996 and specializes in different nutritional supplements and fitness programs. Despite their length of time in business, they weren’t rated with the Better Business Bureau, although they didn’t have any closed complaints, either.
However, we did learn that the FDA sent Naturecast a warning letter in 2013 for making drug-related claims (i.e. that their supplements treat specific diseases, such as diabetes). Unfortunately, the company’s response wasn’t noted.
Where does all of this leave you with Nucleon X?
Should Nucleon X Be the Center Of Your Wellness Plan?
If we’re being honest, we think it’d be wonderful if we could pop a couple pills containing nothing more than vitamins and nutrients, and begin returning to a time when our muscles were strong and out skin was wrinkle-free. But except in especially rare circumstances, fantasy doesn’t match with reality.
To this end, considering the fact that we’re told very little about Nucleon X—despite its ultra-long, hype-filled long form landing page—and the ingredients we are told about will do nothing to boost your body’s adult stem cell levels, we think your money will be better spent elsewhere. Specifically, making an appoint with your physician about more realistic and science-based methods of help you feel younger and more vigorous.
But what about that ‘Doctor Verified’ logo at the bottom of the Nucleon X website? Doesn’t that hold some weight?
Does this emblem actually mean anything? In our opinion, not much.
Among other things, MedicalDoctorVerified.com claims that a company’s “website must not make claims that are fraudulent, blatantly false, illegal, or have no basis supported by current generally accepted beliefs and practices in the medical industry.” But based on what we learned above, we’ll let you decide whether or not the Nucleon X website meets this criteria.
