    SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose Bioenergy Ribose® is a unique 5 carbon carbohydrate that can be consumed mixed in water or added to a variety of beverages or foods. It can be used as a dietary supplement for the support of cardiovascular health, energy production, and mitochondrial function. The slightly sweet white powder rapidly dissolves in water to make a very pleasant drink. Research shows that approximately 97% of D-Ribose is very rapidly absorbed into the body.

    Ribose is the vital structural backbone of critical cellular compounds called purines and pyrimidines. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of purines and pyrimidines to form major cellular constituents such as our genetic material (DNA and RNA), numerous cofactors and certain vitamins.

    But more importantly, ribose is the backbone of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the source for all cellular energy. Ribose is the starting point in the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines and the availability of ribose determines the rate at which they can be made by our cells and tissues.

    Why use SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose?

    First and foremost it rapidly restores depleted energy at the cellular level. It not only provides energy during exercise activity but also enables muscle recovery post exercise.

    Research shows that athletes taking D-Ribose before, or after training felt significantly better and were no longer fatigued in the days following a rigorous workout. Contrary to previous observations that muscle energy stores were only refilled during rest, recent studies show that D-Ribose supplementation continues to replenish energy stores even during rigorous exercise activity.

    Generally, pain, soreness and stiffness after any strenuous activity are caused by depletion in the muscle ATP pool. D-Ribose reduces symptoms of fatigue during rigorous training. Doses of 3 to 5 grams two to three times per day are sufficient to provide significant improvement in quantitative measures of breathing efficiency and cellular energy management. D-Ribose supplementation improves functional capacity, aerobic exercise tolerance and mental health. Although D-Ribose is a five-carbon monosaccharide, it does not raise blood sugar, making it a good carbohydrate to use in food and beverage formulation. D-Ribose can be supplemented in any condition where cells may be starved of energy: during and after exercise activity to recover quickly; people suffering with heart disease and neuromuscular disease; chronic fatigue syndrome, etc.

    For some, high-intensity exercise may mean daily training for a marathon, 10K, or triathlon. For others, it may mean walking to the mailbox, climbing a flight of stairs, or a day at the mall. For most of us, though, it simply means stressing our muscles beyond their normal limit.

    Regardless how we individually define high-intensity, the effect on our bodies is the same. Intense exertion taxes our muscles to stay energized. The resulting energy demand/supply mismatch leads to a drain in energy, depleting the cellular energy pool. This loss of cellular energy is a disaster because re-supplying this energy is slow and metabolically costly.

    Suggested Use - How to take SOURCE D-Ribose?

    Take 1 scoop (5 grams) mixed in water, juice or other beverage, 2 to 3 times a day. Dosage can be increased to 40 to 50 grams a day during rigorous training or competition. May be taken with or without food.

    Continued use is necessary to maintain the benefits the benefits of SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose.

    Caution: Insulin-dependent diabetics and pregnant women should consult their physician before use.

    How Does It Work?

    SOURCE SuperFoods Ribose is unique in this metabolic role. No other compound can replace ribose in the important job of regulating the metabolic processes involved in synthesizing purines and pyrimidines. And without these vital structural components, our bodies would quickly run out of energy, could not make proteins and our cells would lose the ability to replicate. Energy recovery and tissue repair are slower in heart and muscle cells, especially after overwork or exercise. Ribose drives the process that replenishes ATP and other energy components in these cells.

    Ribose is made in our bodies' cells from glucose, but this process is slow in heart and muscle tissue. Although ribose is present in all living matter, only a small amount can be ingested through the diet. In many U.S. and European clinical studies, providing supplemental D-Ribose has been shown to significantly improve endurance during strenuous exercise, shorten recovery time, reduce cramping and soreness, and reduce fatigue in people suffering from energy depletion.

    SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose Ribose regulates the body's natural process of energy synthesis. It helps to reduce the loss of energy during stress and accelerates energy and tissue recovery. Through this action, SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose helps muscles regenerate lost energy and potentially helps minimize any physiological consequences of this energy depletion situation. Whether running a marathon in under three hours or fitting in a daily workout session designed to keep your heart and muscles healthy, D-Ribose can help keep your muscles energized and feeling strong.

    FAQ's

    Why is D-Ribose so important for cellular energy?

    D-Ribose is a 5-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose) and once absorbed, forms the central molecule in a nucleotide. DNA contains deoxyribose nucleotides while RNA contains ribose nucleotides. DNA is more stable than RNA because of the reduction in reactive oxygen atoms.

    Why SOURCE SuperFoods BIOENERGY™ RIBOSE© ?

    Because it is the only form of Ribose which is protected by a family of patents, and is natural, safe, clinically proven, Non-GMO, Kosher, and FDA GRAS Affirmed.

    Who should use it?

    If you are an athlete it will help you with sustained energy and endurance and enable quick recovery and help improve performance. In many U.S. and European clinical studies, providing supplemental D-Ribose has been shown to significantly improve endurance during strenuous exercise, shorten recovery time, reduce cramping and soreness.

    My mother is 75 years old and she always complains of lack or energy, will D-Ribose help her?

    Yes, it will because it will help with your energy levels and also reduce muscle stiffness and provide greater endurance to increase your athletic performance.

    How do I consume it?

    SOURCE SuperFoods D-Ribose can be consumed as a standalone product mixed in water or added to a variety of beverages or foods.

    Does it mix easily and how does it taste?

    It’s a slightly sweet white powder and it rapidly dissolves in water to make a very pleasant drink.

    Is it easily absorbed by the body?

    Yes, research shows that approximately 97% of D-Ribose is very rapidly absorbed into the body.

    Can you tell me about the science behind this ingredient?

    Ribose is the vital structural backbone of critical cellular compounds called purines and pyrimidines. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of purines and pyrimidines to form major cellular constituents such as our genetic material (DNA and RNA), numerous cofactors and certain vitamins.

    How is Ribose related to cellular energy?

    Ribose is the basis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—the source for all cellular energy. Ribose is the starting point in the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines and the availability of ribose determines the rate at which they can be made by our cells and tissues.

    I am an ultra-runner, and I run almost 10 to 15 miles every other day, should I take Ribose for each training session?

    I am a MMA fighter and I compete at a very high level which leaves me stiff and sore for a few days, how can it help me?

    Generally, pain, soreness and stiffness after any strenuous activity are caused by depletion in the muscle ATP pool. D-Ribose reduces symptoms of fatigue during rigorous training.

    What is the metabolic role of Ribose?

    No other compound can replace ribose in the important job of regulating the metabolic processes involved in synthesizing purines and pyrimidines. And without these vital structural components, our bodies would quickly run out of energy, could not make proteins and our cells would lose the ability to replicate.
