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 sugars 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.

I have used and continue using this product at 4-6 grams per day (not 10-15 grams per day as recommended) for severe fatigue, in a combination with glutathione and ubiquinol/CoQ10. The latter two products need to be taken for several weeks before any effect can be expected; thus, I was hoping that the d-Ribose would "kick in" faster in terms of improving my energy . Within 10 days after starting, I noticed a slight improvement- less pressure on my chest, less breathing difficulty, better sleep, less of a sense of doom. From there on out, my energy improved slowly but constantly, almost on a daily basis. Obviously, I made sure that I got enough sleep and paid attention to my food choices as well, and avoided, by sheer necessity, any physical exertion. It is now two months since my worst exhaustion (which was so bad that I was afraid I would actually die), and I am almost back to normal- meaning I do all my chores, go shopping, and a couple days ago even went on my first one-plus hour hike in two months. The crash that I feared might happen never materialized! I credit the d-Ribose in large part with this spectacular improvement. Will definitely continue to use regularly or indefinitely and buy again!

Helped my energy levels But should not be called a "wafer". This big tablet is rock hard & the only way i could take it was by dissolving in water, which takes a few hours. I've now ordered the powder.

This is more expensive than the powder that I take in the morning. Since they call for 10 mg daily I take 5 of these to go with the powder. I like to chew this in the afternoon. Nice taste. Have good energy for a heart failure survivor.
