Life Extension D-Ribose 120 vegetarian capsules
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.
D-Ribose is an energy enhancer that is a naturally occurring sugar shown, with positive results, to generate the recovery of ATP levels (the body's primary energy carrying molecule). Athletes experience low oxygen as the result of high intense exercise. Studies indicate oral consumption of ribose leads to increase power productivity and improves the capacity of skeletal muscles to quickly recover energy levels.
People suffering from Ischemia or poor cardiovascular health rely on ribose because ATP keeps your heart beating, muscles contracting, rebuild energy and cells functioning. After a heart attack, taking ribose helps ATP levels and heart function return to normal within 48 hours. Reports have shown Ribose can even lower blood sugar levels. Ribose has also proven effect for people suffering with Fibromyalgia. People suffering from this condition show signs of low ATP levels and reduced capacity to produce ATP in their muscles soreness and cramping.
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.
If you have heart disease, the metabolic machinery in your heart cells do not function efficiently. Working on its own, your heart cannot make ribose fast enough to keep up with your body's demands and you are always trying to catch up. Your heart is draining energy and becoming literally energy starved.
The ribose fuels your heart and the rest of your body with the critical building blocks you need to build energy. And restoring cellular energy means you can feel less tired and can lead a more active life. Healthcare professionals have seen first-hand the dramatic results that ribose can produce in their patients every day. It's no wonder leading cardiac hospitals and clinics around the country are recommending d-ribose to their patients with heart disease.
In studies of healthy athletes as well as those who have suffered injury to the heart muscle, supplying fatigued muscle cells with D-ribose quickly restored ATP levels to normal. By helping to rapidly refill depleted energy stores, D-ribose may be especially beneficial for people coping with cardiac and other problems marked by impaired cellular energy production.
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 serving 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 capsule daily for general health.
Continued use is necessary to maintain the benefits of D-Ribose Caps.
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.
