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.

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.

it may be that the sample is too small, I haven't noticed any change in my energy levels going through the whole bottle, even taking 2 at once
nothing to say

I feel glucose at the training, but I didn't feel anything special. Don't know if is necessary to pay more for this stuff.
