D-ribose, a simple 5-carbon monosaccharide is
used by all living cells as an essential compound in cellular energy
metabolism. Ribose, needed to synthesize adenine nucleotides, is the
carbohydrate backbone of genetic material - DNA and RNA and other
important cellular compounds. Without ribose, tissues could not produce
these life giving compounds.
Adenine nucleotides are required by heart, muscle and other tissue to
make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the primary source of energy used by
all cells to maintain normal health and function. When the pool of
adenine nucleotides is depressed by disease or strenuous exercise or
activity, the level of energy available to the cell is compromised. A
reduction in cellular energy level can lead to diminished function and
reduced physiological health.
For energy enhancement, ½ to 1 teaspoon (about 2 – 5 grams) is
generally adequate although up to 15 grams per day can be taken safely.
Ribose is mildly sweet and completely soluble. It mixes easily with
your favorite juice, milk, PaleoMeal or other cold foods such as yogurt.As a dietary supplement, take one heaping teaspoon (5 grams) daily or as directed by your health care practitioner.wheat, yeast, soy, gluten, eggs, dairy, corn, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.Protected by U.S. patents 6,159,942, 6,534,480, 6,218,366 6,339,716 and other U.S. and foreign patents issued and pending.
