is a natural D-Ribose supplement
that is used by the body for energy production
. D-Ribose has been available for a long time, but due to recent research and promotion on TV by a famous doctor, many people have began to take D-Ribose and have benefited from its ability to improve energy in the cell and improve heart muscle strength
What is d-Ribose?
D-Ribose is the more bioavailable form of Ribose. D-Ribose plays an important role in ATP production. ATP or adenosine triphosphate is the 'power house' of the cell and provides energy to the cell.
D-Ribose is naturally produced by your body, however the production occurs very slowly. Because of this, supplementing with a good D-Ribose supplement is oftentimes beneficial.
Ribose is also called pentose since it is a sugar made of 5 carbons. Ribose is made by all cells of the body and is an important molecule in RNA. When it's combined with adenine, adenosine is made and this is one of the main constituents of ATP. Since adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is used by muscles during very intense activity, D-ribose supplements have been used many athletes to enhance energy production and improve their workouts.
Benefits of D-Ribose Supplements
As mentioned above, D-Ribose helps to improve energy production. It also helps recovery following intense work out or other physical activity and also to increase energy levels during work outs and playing sports.
Many athletes have found that by taking a D-Ribose supplement on a daily basis they have less stiffness, fatigue and muscle soreness. Due to all these benefits, it's becoming quite the supplement for endurance athletes.
Heart Benefits of D-Ribose
Recent research has shown potential benefits of taking a Ribose supplement in helping to improve the recovery of those individuals that have suffered a heart attack or have had recent heart surgery.
Since D-Ribose helps to improve blood flow to the heart, it appears that individuals that have ischemia of the heart will also benefit from D-Ribose.
D-Ribose Benefits for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Recently, a study revealed that D-Ribose supplements may help to improve the recovery of people with fibromyalgia, since many of these individuals have ATP depletion. In addition, besides improving the energy for fibromyalgia sufferers, D-ribose may also help improve their sense of well-being and their sleep.
Since so many people report improved energy and sense of well-being while taking a D-ribose supplement, it has been postulated that those with CFS, or chronic fatigue syndrome may also benefit.
A study called The Use of D-Ribose in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia that was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2006 wanted to see if using D-ribose supplements was able to decrease the symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The test subjects were given 5 grams of d-ribose 3 times per day until they had a total of 280 grams.
The following conclusions were made by the scientists:
The test subjects tolerated d-ribose very well and had a major improvement in all areas being tested: mental clarity, sleep, pain intensity, energy, and general well-being. 66% of the test subjects had dramatic improvement when taking D-ribose supplements and the average boost in energy was 45%.
More research is needed to prove this, however, since there are so few side-effects, many sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome are trying a D-ribose supplement for themselves.
How Long Until I Feel Improvement?
It appears that in about 60% of test subjects, the boost in energy they felt, and their ability to train more intensely was felt in about 3-4 days. The effect is usually felt more in individuals that train very hard since they are depleting their adenine more. Even if you don't feel a boost in energy, your cells and the ability of your cells to recover are probably improved.
Are There Any Medications That May React with D-Ribose?
D-Ribose may react with medicines such as aspirin, tilisate, disalcid and inderal. In addition if you take medication for diabetes, D-Ribose may cause your blood sugar to drop even more. You should always speak with your doctor before taking d-Ribose if you are on medication.
In addition, if you take a Ribose supplement with alcohol, you may get a drop in blood sugar.
Note: Although there are no reasons that taking d-Ribose supplements would be a problem; if you are pregnant or nursing you should talk with your doctor before taking D-Ribose.
