"My husband is using this product for increasing his energy. He prefer the vitacost black series than the vitacost reqular D-Ribose. The powder is more refined."

Great Product
 November 17, 2015
"This is a good source of D-Ribose that is more affordable. It includes a measuring scoop, which originally the Vitacost brand did not, that makes it convenient to use and keeps dosing accurate.
A much better buy than the Vitacost D-Ribose.
It tends to clump, but easily crumbles and dissolves in water. I would rather deal with that than have any additives put in.

Great Pick-me-up
 September 28, 2015
"I mix the ARO-Vitacost Pure D-Ribose with a squirt of lemon juice in a glass of water for a tasty mid-day pick-me-up. It mixes easily and is just the right amount of sweet for a great tasting glass of lemonade."

Have it in my first cup of coffee.
 July 15, 2015
"This product gives me a boost of energy to get my day going. I have it in my morning cup of coffee. It has a slight sweet taste but it isn't over powering. It dissolves quickly with no texture. I sometime add it to my gym water for extra energy as well."

seems to work
 November 8, 2014
"i take a group of about 5 things before i work out, arginine, citrulline, creatine, methyl b12 and TMG or trymethylglycine...AND this.
each one of these i've added selectively to my pre-workout mix and have seen improvements, as i have with ribose. ribose seems to give me more energy during my workouts, whether my run or weight workout. however, since there is a synergistic effect from these particular supplements i can't really break it down further than that, though it is also supposed to spare ATP in your system. i certainly will keep using it, and this brand has a good taste and consistency so i'll stick with it."

Good product.
 March 31, 2014
"I like this product, esp. quantity for the price when its on sale! Other reviewers complaining about clumps..thats true! But, all you have to do is turn the container upside down occasionally and SHAKE it folks!! That practice is recommended for many supps., esp the pre workouts, or moisture works its way into the bottle and get a HORRIBLE clump!"

Texture not uniform

"The product was a mixture of smooth powder and very hard lumps (up to 1/2" in diameter). Very difficult to measure out a consistent quantity without trying to crush the lumps."

Very clumpy
 September 6, 2013
"I had used Vitacost d Ribose previously when it came in their blue an silver container and was very happy. I believe it was made by Bioenergy. It had a sugar consistency . When I no longer saw the 300gm available, I went with their Aro brand. The consistency is horrible, almost like moisture had affected the product. Its more like a powdery clump. Last time for this product. It's the first Vitacost product that I wasn't satisfied with."
