Ribose Facts and Information What is Ribose and what does it do?

Ribose, a unique, 5-carbon sugar that occurs naturally in all living cells forms the carbohydrate portion of DNA and RNA, the building blocks of life. Ribose is also the sugar that begins the metabolic process for production of adenosine triphosphate (or ATP). ATP is the major source of energy used by cells including muscle tissue for normal function.

Research on Ribose and Energy Recovery in Athletes

Intense exercise causes a significant decrease in skeletal muscle energy levels. In fact, it can take 3 days or longer for these energy levels to recover! Recent studies show, however, that supplementing with high quality ribose hastens energy recovery in all types of skeletal muscles. This means you'll be able to work out longer and build muscle faster because you will recover quicker from intense workouts, having the energy to do more!

Research on Ribose in Cardiovascular Health

Over the past 25 years, research has shown that ribose enhances energy recovery in cardiac muscle (heart tissue) after periods of restricted blood flow. Rigorous testing in both animal and human studies have demonstrated that supplementation of ribose restores intracellular energy levels in the cardiac muscle tissue and helps maintain healthy heart function.

How can Ribose Help the Bodybuilder?

Ribose is research proven to help increase muscular energy, boost endurance, and promote recovery! It's a powerful cellular energy source that is naturally occurring and found in all cells in the body. It's an efficient way to improve your energy levels for working out through its participation in the synthesis of ATP in the muscle cell, enhancing performance, and aiding in the recovery of muscle tissue after intense exercise.
