Doctor's Best - D-Ribose Featuring BioEnergy Ribose 250gm

About Supplements.co.nz Doctor's Best - D-Ribose Featuring BioEnergy Ribose 250gm

-Supports energy levels in heart and muscle tissue  
-Decreases free radical formation during exercise
-Highly beneficial for athletes and seniors

Ribose is the building block of ATP, the substance found in every cell of our body that gives us energy. Ribose is a 5-carbon sugar (pentose) used by the body to synthesize DNA and RNA as well to produce energy. It does not raise blood sugar levels thus preventing diabetes. Lack of Ribose can lead to the cells becoming energy deprived. Doctor's Best- D-Ribose featuring BioEnergy Ribose is highly recommended for fighting fatigue. If you are tired of being tired then D-Ribose featuring BioEnergy Ribose is the way to go for.

Why take D-Ribose?
As long we stay reasonably fit and our cells get the oxygen they need, this cycle of energy can keep turning unimpeded. However, problems occur when conditions affect how well oxygen flows to our cells or how well our cells use the oxygen. D-Ribose can enhance the energy recovery process, supporting healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue. 

Supports normal heart and muscle function
Support for ischemic heart disease, congestive heart failure and muscle disease such as fibromyalgia – these conditions force the affected heart and muscle to consume energy more quickly than it can be restored. Supplying the affected tissue with ribose stimulates the process of energy recovery and helps the heart and muscles refill their ‘energy tanks’.

Supports ageing
As ageing occurs the muscles lose energy recycling efficiency - ageing muscle generally has fewer mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell) than younger muscles. The muscles then run out of energy with exertion, becoming stiff and sore after only mild exercise.

High active lifestyles
Athletes or anyone doing high-intensity exercising will drain energy from heart and muscles. Taking ribose before, during and after exercise can maintain energy levels.

Help strengthen antioxidant defences
Intense exercise and other strenuous activity can induce free radicals. By taking ribose this may help attenuate some of the effects of oxidation.

 

Directions:

Suggested Adult Use: Take 1 scoop mixed in water, juice or other beverage twice daily. May be taken with or without food.

Faqs

Why take D-Ribose?

As long we stay reasonably fit and our cells get the oxygen they need, this cycle of energy can keep turning unimpeded. However, problems occur when conditions affect how well oxygen flows to our cells or how well our cells use the oxygen. D-Ribose can enhance the energy recovery process, supporting healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue.

Is Best D-Ribose derived from corn?

Yes, it is fermented from corn syrup.

Is Ribose safe for diabetics?

Ribose is a 'sugar' distinct from glucose. It does not raise blood sugar levels or lead to diabetes. However, for insulin-dependent diabetics, pregnant women and those with elevated uric acid levels should consult their physician before use.

Does ribose work with creatine or other supplements?

Creatine works by recycling energy that is already present in the tissue. Another supplement, carnitine, aids in fatty acid metabolism. Others, such as pyruvate and coenzyme Q10, also help to recycle energy. None of these other supplements, however, help to actually make the energy compounds the cell needs to maintain a healthy energy pool. Only ribose performs this important metabolic function. Keep this in mind: Ribose helps the body actually make energy, while other supplements may help the body use energy more efficiently.

Are there any side effects associated with taking ribose?

There are two known side effects of taking ribose in doses of 10 grams or more on an empty stomach. The first is a transient hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) that can be eliminated by taking larger doses of ribose with other carbohydrates (such as in juice). The second side effect that may occur in some individuals is loose stools. This side effect has only been reported when very large doses, greater than 10 grams, are taken. Total daily intake of ribose should be limited to 20 grams, or approximately 4 rounded teaspoonfuls. Ribose should be taken in doses up to 5 grams (approximately 1 rounded teaspoon) at a time.

What is used to make D-Ribose and how pure is it?

Our D-Ribose is made by converting glucose, or corn sugar, into Ribose by fermentation processing that yields 97% to 100% purity. There is no residual corn left in d-ribose. Corn is the source material used to begin the fermentation process.
