D-ribose provides that extra "lift" you need during the course of the day. In addition it is reported to have cardiac benefits as well.
I, and others in my household, find you need very little of it and that its effects carry on for some time if you decide to skip a day or two.
Too much however, results in sleepness nights. The first time I (and the dog) took it we paced the floor all night, made several trips out of doors to explore the stars and watched the sun come up without a hint of fatigue. Finally, about 3 in the afternoon we crashed, simultaneously.
Over stimulation such as this is not good. Begin slowly.

Recommended by my cardiac surgeon. Taking 15 grams daily and feeling great. Thanks for a great product at the right price. You should notice a difference within a week. Scotty Brown

This product is AWESOME!! I've dealt with hypothyroidism for 4 years and basically "schlepped" through life due to always being tired. I read an article in a magazine about this powder that stated if you have suffered from high levels of stress, your body may not be producing enough metobolic ATP production (sugar that your body should normally produce). This powder has done wonders in giving me that energy that I missed for 4 years. The first week I took 2 tsp with juice in the morning and 2 more tsp with juice at night. After the first week (The article I read suggested to overload your body because of the lack of this sugar for the first week) than I cut down to 2 tsp a day with juice. I will continue to use this as long as they make it!

It's a NOW product! I have been evaluating d-ribose for a few weeks and have concluded that it does seem to help maintain energy level and muscle recovery after exercise.
