D-Ribose is a pentose (5-carbon) monosaccharide simple sugar that is produced in the body from glucose. It is present in every living cell in the human body as part of the cell’s DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). DNA holds all the genetic information of a cell and RNA holds information for protein manufacture by the cell.

Description

Details

D-Ribose is a pentose (5-carbon) monosaccharide simple sugar that is produced in the body from glucose. It is present in every living cell in the human body as part of the cell’s DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid). DNA holds all the genetic information of a cell and RNA holds information for protein manufacture by the cell.

D-Ribose is also an important component of AMP, ADP and ATP, the building blocks of cellular energy and therefore plays a major role in the way in which cells produce and utilize energy. Ribose is present in the body in small amounts and the average physically active person has approximately 1.6mg of ribose per 100ml of blood.

Creatine is a naturally occurring amino acid manufactured in the liver, kidneys and pancreas. Over 95% of the body’s creatine stores are found in muscle cells. Creatine may also be obtained from the diet and is present in salmon, beef and chicken. Creatine’s function in the body appears to be associated with the support of muscle fibres and muscle cell function.

D-Ribose/Creatine Monohydrate Supplementation
Although D-Ribose may be produced from glucose, the conversion is quite slow and therefore a supplemental form of D-Ribose is more efficient. Due to it’s essential role in the production of cellular energy, supplemental D-Ribose has been shown to improve the body’s production of energy as a whole.

Supplemental D-Ribose has also been shown to:

  • Improve some aspects of athletic performance
  • Increase the body’s production of cellular energy
  • Restores and increases energy production in cardiac muscle
  • Increase overall stamina
  • Improve normal functioning of the cells of the musculoskeletal system

In cases where a deficiency or reduction in the production of cellular energy is a problem, supplementation with D-Ribose has shown to be of extreme benefit, especially where changes in muscle cell form and oxygen utilization are a concern.

Simple monosaccharide sugars such as D-Ribose have been shown to improve the uptake and restore cellular levels of creatine in muscle cells in conditions associated with low creatine levels.

Some of these conditions include chronic heart and muscle cell disorders. Creatine Monohydrate is a supplemental form of creatine that may rapidly restore cellular levels of creatine.

Creatine Monohydrate has shown to:

  • Delay the onset of muscle fatigue and reduce lactic acid production during exercise.
  • Increase the body’s basal metabolic rate (BMR).
  • Improve muscle strength and stamina in fatigue syndromes.
  • Improve memory and mental function.
Ingredients / Use

How much D-Ribose and Creatine do I need?
To restore and support of cellular energy production, a minimum dose of 5 grams of D-Ribose and 2.5 grams of creatine monohydrate is recommended daily. Ask your healthcare practitioner or pharmacist what the appropriate dose for you to take would be. Up to 95% of creatine taken orally is absorbed into the bloodstream.

What Supplement forms of D-Ribose and Creatine are available?
The most effective way to take D-Ribose and Creatine is in powder form. Powders are absorbed into the bloodstream much more rapidly than any other form and as a result, the active D-Ribose/Creatine mix can be transported to the muscle cells much more efficiently.

Restores my energy systems
I have used this product at times when I feel run down and low in energy. At multiple times through the year I can find myself feeling like my body is not producing energy properly. Instead of my usual consistent energy I feel like a flat battery and it can last for weeks or months. At those times I have been diagnosed as having Chronic fatigue. I started taking this product last year and over the period of a week I felt my well being picking up. I could feel my energy levels were higher and they remained higher while I took this product. Now I reach for D-Ribose & Creatine Monohydrate as my first choice for getting myself back to feeling well whenever I feel my energy levels have dropped.
