D-Ribose Powder 150 grams (5.29 oz.)
People suffering from cardiac and other debilitating health problems often exhibit severely depleted cellular energy in heart and muscle tissue, which can greatly impair normal daily functions.
The primary source of energy for all cellular processes is a molecule known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Healthy, active cells constantly replenish their supply of ATP to produce vital cellular energy. However, under conditions of stress, injury, or aging, critical body tissues such as heart and skeletal muscles cannot produce ATP quickly enough to perform optimally.
D-ribose, a carbohydrate molecule found in every living organism, facilitates the production of ATP.
D-Ribose Caps and D-Ribose Powder can help speed energy recovery, increase energy reserves, and maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue.
Take one (1) scoop once or twice daily with food for supporting cardiovascular health and energy levels in working muscles, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. For alternative dosing take one (1) scoop before and after exercise. D-Ribose has a natural mildly sweet taste and can be mixed into hot or cold food. D-Ribose can be used as a sweetener. Continued use is necessary to maintain the benefits of D-Ribose Powder.
D-ribose can actually lower blood glucose levels; therefore, insulin-dependent diabetics should check with their healthcare practitioner before starting on the supplement. Take D-ribose with meals, or at least mixed into juice, milk or fruit, to offset the blood glucose lowering effect.
When using nutritional supplements, please inform your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or lactating.
