Doctor's Best D-Ribose -- 250 g - 8.8 oz

Science-Based Nutrition™. -- Supports healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue. -- Maintains normal heart function. -- Decreases free radical formation during exercise. -- Suitable for Vegetarians. Ribose is an essential pentose (5-carbon) sugar utilized by the body to synthesize DNA RNA and produce energy.  Ribose is a fundamental building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP – the substance in which the body stores intracellular energy) the preferential source of energy for skeletal muscle and heart tissue. Studies have shown that ribose supplementation can enhance cardiac energy levels and support cardiovascular metabolism.  .  . Further studies suggest that ribose plays a role in supporting energy recovery after exercise. Exercise increases free radical production in muscle tissue. Ribose may strengthen and support the body’s crucial antioxidant defenses.

"i love this d ribose in powder form. It takes about a month to really kick in. It improves my energy and moods. I take a little more when I need extra energy. I can tell a difference when I don't take it. I'll keep using it."

D-Ribose
 May 1, 2010
"I initially ordered D-Ribose because of the recommendation of a TV host doctor saying it will give you more energy. I use it almost everyday since I purchased it and when I don't use it I feel exactly the same. I have not notice any change in my energy level. Save your money and buy a sweetner that's less expensive. I am very disappointed with this product and will not be ordering it again."
