D-Ribose occurs naturally in all living cells and is an energy source that the body makes from food. It is a simple five carbon sugar that is produced by the body and begins the metabolic process for ATP production. It naturally and effectively fuels ATP energy production. D-Ribose supplementation can increase ATP production by 400% - 700%. D-Ribose works synergistically with, and enhances the benefits of creatine supplements. It is used to improve athletic performance by boosting muscle energy. It has also been used to improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease. D-Ribose has been used to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise in people with an inherited disorder called myoadenylate deaminase deficiency (MAD) or AMP deaminase deficiency (AMPD deficiency). D-Ribose has also been used to improve exercise ability in people with another inherited disorder called McArdle‘s disease.
There is some evidence that supplemental D-Ribose might prevent muscle fatigue in people with genetic disorders that prevent sufficient energy production by the body. It might provide extra energy to the heart during exercise in people with heart disease. Because D-Ribose is a simple sugar, it is extremely well absorbed. The clinical experience of cardiologists using D-Ribose to treat heart failure due to mitochondrial failure is that it is very effective and free from side effects. The dose depends on the severity of the illness, but the clinical experience is that sufferers should be started on high doses and then it can be adjusted to a maintenance dose.
