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.

ok, lowered blood pressure too much.

Posted by Reviewer3308983 on Oct 16, 2011

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.

Chewable D-Ribose.

Posted by Reviewer2362184 on May 06, 2012

I took one last night after a long very active day along with 3 cordyceps spaced throughout the day. I was able to keep going out dancing last night. Also it doesn't make me hyper or keep me up at night like alot of things. A little sugar is worth the sacrifice. I'm a nurse and HAVE to be active. Also I have chronic fatigue/epstein barr virus, this combats it along with other supps, LOVE iherb.

Energy Boost

Posted by 4791677576563776493 on Jul 13, 2012

I usually take this pre or intra my weight-lifting work out and it gives me a nice boost to keep trying harder. Its nice as it generates ATP production and delays fatigue.
