Doctor's Best D-Ribose, featuring Bioenergy Ribose. Ribose is an essential pentose (5-carbon) sugar utilised by the body to synthesize DNA, RNA and produce energy. Ribose is a fundamental building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP, the substance in which the body stores intracellular energy), the preferential source of energy for skeletal muscle and heart tissue. Studies have shown that ribose supplementation can enhance cardiac energy levels and support cardiovascular metabolism. Further studies suggest that ribose plays a role in supporting energy recovery after exercise. Exercise increases free radical production in muscle tissue. Ribose may strengthen and support the body's crucial antioxidant defenses. Continued use is necessary to maintain the benefits of Best D-Ribose. Suitable for vegetarians. 250 grams.
If you are an athlete, D-Ribose SHOULD be part of your daily supplement regime
The Doctor's Best D-Ribose features BioEnergy D-Ribose.
Ribose is an essential pentose (5-Carbon) sugar utilized by the body to synthesise DNA, RNA and produce energy. Ribose is a "sugar" distinct from glucose. it does not raise blood sugar levels or lead to diabetes. Ribose is a fundamental building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the substance in which the body stores intracellular energy, the preferred source of energy for skeletal muscle and heart tissue.
Studies have shown that ribose supplementation can enhance cardiac energy levels and support cardiovascular metabolism.
Further studies suggest that ribose plays a role in supporting energy recovery after exercise. Exercise increases free radical production in muscle tissue. Ribose may strengthen and support the body's crucial antioxidant defenses.
There is heaps of research on the use of D-Ribose, energy production and recovery. This is just one study:
A study investigated the effect of oral intake of ribose on the synthesis of AMP a precursor to ATP. Participants performed intense cycle training for seven days.
They then received either ribose, at a concentration of 200mg/kg body weight, which is equivalent to 14 grams per day for an average 70 kg male or a placebo.
Exercise tests were performed again on day 4. Muscle biopsy samples were taken before the first training session, immediately after and again five hours, 24 hours and 72 hours after the last training session.
No differences were seen in exercise performance between the two group. The intense exercise caused ATP levels in the muscles to decrease in both groups, however, at 72 hours post-exercise, the ribose group exhibited a much higher ATP level than the placebo group.
The muscle levels of critical building blocks and ATP, including total adenine nucleotides (TAN) and inosine 5-monophosphate (IMP) were also significantly higher in the ribose group compared to the placebo group at 24 hours after exercise.
Ribose supplementation was shown to enhance the re-synthesis of ATP after intense exercise.
Research suggests that optimal heart function requires a consistent supply of essential cofactor nutrients including D-Ribose, CoQ10, L-carnitine and magnesium. Consider these other high quality nutrients, in conjunction with Best D-Ribose, for enhanced cardiovascular support.
