I've noticed that a lot of high-end multivitamins contain DNA.
Where does this DNA/RNA usually come from, and what is it supposed to do in the body?
What are your thoughts on it?

yeh whats up with the multivitamins + antioxidants mega packs where you have a huge label of ingredients to read and all supposely good for you but just so it happens it is such low amount in each capsule, its most useless crap ever. you pay extra for the big bottles which state on the back "take up to 6 a day" and you realize bottle is over sooner than you think. this forum has actual members who are trying to create a brand of multiCRAP vitamin where they combine all the antixodiants vitamins and shit into one. its so lame and its sad.

It's probably meant to be a source of nucleosides. The question is, is there enough there to make a difference? Lots of multis have insignificant amounts of the latest hot molecule. That's marketing. If the dose is sufficient, then it's something of value, if you happen to need it.

But aren't there nucleosides/DNA & RNA in fruits and vegetables?
Also, from where does the DNA/RNA in these vitamins derive? Are they from animals, plant extracts, etc?

There should be at least a little wherever there's a cell. Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of extracellular stuff though. Leaves might be a better source, since there's DNA in chloroplasts as well as nuclei. If you really want a lot of nucleic acid, you probably have to go to some trouble to purify it. A lot of people here take pharmacologic doses of uridine, for example.
Hard to say where vitamin DNA might be from... Yeast, maybe?
