D-ribose is a natural compound made by your body throughout life. D-ribose is a pentose sugar, or a 5-carbon sugar (more familiar sugar like glucose and fructose have 6 carbon atoms). As part of RNA and DNA, D-ribose is needed for cell maintenance and growth. Ribose initiates the production of the critical energy molecule ATP, the primary energy source of cells. ATP is rapidly depleted in muscle tissue by strenuous exercise. D-ribose is a core supplement for maximizing energy levels in a healthy way, without the drawbacks of stimulant ingredients. Studies suggest that ribose can help support energy recovery after exercise. Exercise increases free radical production in muscle tissue. Ribose supplementation may strengthen and support the body's crucial antioxidant defenses.

Tried it for energy. It did give me energy, but I have low blood pressure. And taking the d-ribose, my blood pressure went even lower and I felt a little dizzy. So if a person has strong blood pressure, it might be fine for them.

In all fairness I can't really give this the most objective assessment because this is the first time I've tried D-Ribose, so I can't compare it to other brands. However, I definitely feel more energy when using this product. I am curious to compare this one to other brands.
Part of Sinatra Solution reigimen-Use at Gym after workouts
Posted by nutranut on Apr 22, 2013
After reading "The Sinatra Solution", my husband and I started taking D-Ribose, Carnitine, COQ10, and magnesium. The most economical way to take D-Ribose is to order the powdered version and mix it with water. However, we decided to take it after our workouts at the gym. The chewables make this easy and convenient. The taste is pleasant and they are easy to take. It makes it so much simpler to take the supplements we need when we are away from home. Normally we use the liquid form of carnitine and the ribose powder. After using the ribose and carnitine, we noticed that we were less sore and tired after working out. My husband says it increases his energy. I don't really notice a significant increase, but I definitely feel better than I normally do after a hard workout-especially the next day when I usually feel sore, stiff, and tired. Will definitely order full size for continued use.
