Health Benefits Of D-Ribose

Updated on April 13, 2012

D-Ribose

D-Ribose is a nutritional supplement that has been around for a long time but has become one of the hottest supplements of late after new research on this very promising product. Ribose is a special carbohydrate that is used in the body for energy production in the cells as it plays a critical role in the production of ATP. ATP is what provides the energy needed for short burst of power movements during physical activity. Ribose is being used to help to strengthen muscles, including the heart, enhancing athletic performance, recovery from physical activity, and to increase energy levels.

D-Ribose Chewables by Source Naturals

During strenuous exercise, large amounts of ATP, the body's primary energy-carrying molecule, can be depleted in heart and skeletal muscle cells. D-Ribose is a simple sugar that is used by the body to synthesize nucleotides, ATP, nucleic acids, and glycogen.

Chew 3 to 5 tablets daily, or as recommended by your health care professional.

D-Ribose Powder by Now

Ribose occurs naturally in all living cells. It is a simple sugar that begins the metabolic process for ATP production. D-Ribose works synergistically with, and enhances the benefits of, creatine supplements.

As a dietary supplement, take about 2 teaspoons daily, prior to exercise. Serious athletes may want to double the dosage during training.
