About Supplements.co.nz Doctor's Best D-Ribose

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

 

Doctor’s Best D-Ribose featuring BioEnergy® Ribose supports energy production in the heart and muscles and promotes muscle recovery following exercise. D-ribose forms the structural core of ATP. ATP is the energy source for our muscles during physical activity and the primary source of energy for our heart. BioEnergy® Ribose is a patented ingredient proven to restore and sustain energy. 

 

Features at Glance:

  • Vegan
  • Available in powder, capsule and chewable wafer
  • Supports normal heart and muscle function
  • Supports ageing
  • Help strengthen antioxidant defenses

 

    Benefits:

    • Essential building block for ATP (preferential form of energy for heart and muscle tissue)
    • Supports energy levels in heart and muscle tissue
    • Helps maintain normal heart function
    • Decreases free radical formation during exercise
    • Support for heart conditions, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue
    • Highly beneficial for athletes and seniors

     

    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 Use: Take up to 5 caps twice daily. The product may be taken with a carbohydrate-containing meal or beverage if blood sugar fluctuation issues exist. 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 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.

    D-Ribose is making my Fibromyalgia more manageable

    It has taken a while to see any effects, but that is fairly normal when you start taking supplements. I found out D-ribose was recommended for Fibromyalgia and with some scepticism I tried it. It is reducing my symptoms quite considerably.

    D-ribose for Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E.)

    I use D-ribose in combination with Acetyl-l-carnitine & Co-q10 to help with providing energy to the muscles which is lacking with M.E. - muscles doesn't just mean leg & arm muscles but heart, brain, lungs, eyes etc. Allows me to go to work each day.

    Great for helping with M.E.

    D-Ribose assists with muscle energy that is missing with M.E. I have used it for several years & would not function without it.
