Doctor's Best D-Ribose -- 850 mg - 120 Vegetarian Capsules

Supports normal heart function. A significant amount of in vitro animal and human research suggests benefits of ribose on heart function. Studies have shown that ribose supplementation can enhance cardiac energy levels and support cardiovascular metabolism.  . Ribose has been shown in clinical trials to enhance the recovery of heart muscle ATP levels and improve myocardial function following exercise. Ribose is an essential pentose (5-carbon) sugar utilized by the body to synthesize DNA RNA and produce energy. (Ribose is a “sugar” distinct from glucose. It does not raise blood sugar levels or lead to diabetes.) 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.

helps athletic performance

"Boosts energy when taken 20 minutes or so before a workout. Gary Null also recommends taking it after your workout. I take it before (and sometimes after too) and it does help. I use it in conjunction with L-carnitine."
