D-ribose is a naturally occurring sugar present in all living cells. It is a key component in many biological pathways, but is most active in glycation (bonding between a sugar and a protein or fat molecule).
D-ribose, together with adenine, make the adenosine molecule of adenosine triphosphate, the main storage and transportation unit of energy.
Main Uses: Improvement of athletic performance by bringing more energy to the muscles, mucle cramps, chonic fatigue syndrome, fybromyalgia
Clinical studies have used between 500 mg -15 g daily. Doses of 500 mg may lead to 100% improvement of muscle efficacy.
Doses of and above 10 g a day may cause some adverse effects and are not recommended unless prescribed by a medical practitioner. Caution and medical supervision is required when taken by people on medications for diabetes or low blood pressure. When supplementing with 15 g it is advised to separate into three 5 g doses.
