Life Extension, D-Ribose Tablets, 100 Veggie Tabs2 Reviews
Expiration Date: Aug 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

The primary source of energy for all cellular processes is a molecule known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Healthy, active cells constantly replenish their supply of ATP to produce vital cellular energy. However, under conditions of stress, injury, or aging, critical body tissues such as heart and skeletal muscles cannot produce ATP quickly enough to perform optimally.
D-ribose, a carbohydrate molecule found in every living organism, facilitates the production of ATP.
In studies of healthy athletes, supplying fatigued muscle cells with D-ribose quickly restored ATP levels to normal. By helping to rapidly refill depleted energy stores, D-ribose may be especially beneficial for heart health.
D-Ribose Tablets and D-Ribose Powder can help speed energy recovery, increase energy reserves and maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue.
Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.
Take one serving daily with food for supporting cardiovascular health and energy levels in working muscles, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. For alternative dosing take one (1) tablet daily for general health. Continued use is necessary to maintain the benefits of D-Ribose Tablets.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I refused to take a high powered drug about a 1 1/2 yrs. ago that had a risk of causing a worse problem when the diagnosis was AFIB by a cardiologist. It calms my heart and only takes 2 or 3 tablets a day to do it. My regular doctor is open to integrated medicine and agreed that the recommended drug was a risk in itself, so he suggested D-Ribose -- Bless him! I know it works, because I ran out once and my heart got all excited! I always keep one bottle ahead now so I don't run out again. I also take a baby aspirin every day. I tried Doctor's Best D-Ribose when iHerb had a free sample once...it was awful. Life Extension works so much better. Don't drop your meds because of this review, but its sure worth a talk to to doctor about it. This is great stuff and not just for athletes.
I would buy this again. One tablet a day has helped me to have a bit more energy. Real or placebo... who can say...
