D-Ribose, or simply Ribose, is a simple, five-carbon sugar that is found naturally in our bodies. It is an essential building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s most basic form of energy, which supplies energy to our cells. When the food you eat is broken down, the energy you obtain from it is converted to ATP within cells. If the cell does not have enough Ribose, it cannot make ATP. So, when cells and tissues become energy starved, the availability of Ribose is critical to energy recovery.
Ribose is not like any other sugar. Other sugars are used by the body as fuel, where they are used by the body to recycle energy. Ribose, on the other hand, is special. When we consume Ribose, the body recognizes that it is different from other sugars and preserves it for the vital work of actually making the energy molecule that powers the muscles, the heart, the brain and every other tissue in the body.
Ribose is made in our body cells from glucose, but this process is slow in the heart and muscle tissue. Although Ribose is present in all living matter, only a small amount can be taken via the diet. Many clinical trials have shown that supplemental Ribose provides a significant improvement in stamina during strenuous exercise, shortens recuperation time, reduces cramp and pain, and reduces fatigue in people suffering from energy depletion.
Ribose can be used as a stand-alone product or added to a variety of functional foods, beverages and nutraceuticals. It has been proven safe and clinically, of course.
