Effective for chronic fatigue syndrome

Posted by iHerb Customer on November 24 2017 | Verified Purchase

D-Ribose is effective for chronic fatigue syndrome, and this Healthy Origins brand has the highest dose for the most capsules at the best price, so I'm sticking with it. I've found that the energizing effect lasts only 2 hours max, so I have to take one cap every 1.5 to 2 hours. I have contacted this manufacturer about this, asking that they consider manufacturing a time-released capsule. Meanwhile, this med allows me enough energy to do my daily chores. I have been able to boost my cognitive energy by taking one capsule of L-Arginine (See review) along with this D-Ribose every 1.5 to 2 hours. Note this D-Ribose is very constipating when taking it every 1.5 to 2 hours, so expect to have to add a stool softener like colace and a mild laxative like senna 2-3 caps to your daily regimen.

Thanks for your feedback!
