D-ribose is a naturally occurring sugar present in all living cells, which is probably the most Bulletproof sugar for two reasons:
- it does not raise your blood glucose, i.e. LOW GI, and
- it improves your energy production by enhancing your mitochodria
How does Ribose work?
- It is a critical component of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the molecule that stores energy in your cells.
- When you exercise, you use up your ATP.
- Ribose can fill them back quickly.
- Less muscle soreness, improved tissue recovery.
Here are some reported effects of D-Ribose in researches:
- It can enhance heart function, as it increases ATP levels in heart cells.
- 5 grams of D-ribose taken twice daily with other medications reduced fibromyalgia symptoms, which returned after one week of stopping D-ribose supplementation.
- 5 grams of D-ribose daily improved energy, sleep, mental clarity, pain intensity, and well-being of patients with fibromyalgia or chronic fatique syndrome.
