Vitacost D-Ribose Energy Formula† Bioenergy Ribose® with ALA & ALC -- 2500 mg per serving - 180 Capsules

Multi-nutrient formula promotes natural energy production.*. What is Vitacost D-Ribose Energy Formula†? Vitacost D-Ribose Energy Formula† is a unique combination of four key ingredients for stimulating natural energy production.* It includes the following in each six-capsule serving:. Bioenergy RIBOSE® (2500 mg) is a naturally occurring sugar used by every cell in the body.* It’s an essential compound in energy metabolism that serves as a building block for adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the body’s basic energy source.* D-ribose is also the carbohydrate backbone of genetic material DNA and RNA.*. Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) (1000 mg) is the acetyl ester of carnitine an amino acid derivative. It’s distributed throughout the central and peripheral nervous system. ALC is known as a mitochondrial antioxidant that can provide anti-aging nutrition.* It’s also a precursor to the important brain neurotransmitter acetylcholine which contributes to the support of cognitive function and memory.*. Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) (600 mg) is a natural compound that functions as a co-factor in vital energy-producing reactions.* It’s been called a “universal antioxidant” because it is effective in water-based substances such as blood while its reduced metabolite dihydrolipoic acid (DHLA) is effective in fatty tissues and membranes.*. Coenzyme Q10 (200 mg) is a fat-soluble vitamin-like compound found in every cell of the body. It’s used by the mitochondria (“power plants”) of cells to produce energy.* Factors including aging genetics and statin drugs can lead to a coenzyme Q10 deficiency. How does Vitacost D-Ribose Energy Formula† support health? Promotes cardiovascular health.*. Maintains healthy mitochondrial function.*. Promotes recovery after sport stresses.*. Supports a healthy cellular energy at the level of ATP.*. Powerful antioxidant protection against free radical damage.*. Why choose Vitacost D-Ribose Energy Formula†?

"I gave the product 2 stars and a "no" for recommending the product because the system requires entries in those two categories. I am about 1/3 of the way through this bottle and can't really tell a difference. If anything changes, I'll post another review."

gr8 price
 February 17, 2010
"D-ribose is significant in feeding my muscle condition. Along with the added ALA & ALC, this is a gr8 value. Please bring the chocolate chewable d-ribose, which Bioenergy produces. It is made by Corvelan and comes in 90 count. It's fabulous with my cup of coffee."

Pure Energy Review

"It is a good value for the money, but there are too many pills to take for a daily dose. I think that minimized the product's effectiveness."
