  • What Is It?

    Ribose is a pentose sugar found in all living cells. It is
    important for maintaining healthy total adenine nucleotide
    pools and ultimately for the production of adenosine
    triphosphate (ATP), promoting skeletal and cardiac muscle
    energy metabolism.*

    Uses For Ribose

    Rapid Energy Repletion For Intense Exercise: Research
    indicates that nucleotides decrease after repeated, intense
    exercise and that they may not be recovered for up to
    several days, leaving muscle without the ability to refuel
    energy stores. Numerous studies demonstrate the ability
    of ribose to increase levels of the nucleotides AMP, ADP
    and ATP, which are depleted during strenuous physical
    activity or by lack of oxygen to working muscle. Skeletal
    and cardiac muscle rely on these metabolites for energy,
    and two metabolic mechanisms preserve these pools.
    The first mechanism involves salvaging end products of
    AMP breakdown, or preventing them from leaving the
    cell. If they are salvaged, they may be recycled back
    to AMP and ultimately to ATP. The second mechanism
    for preserving nucleotide pools is de novo synthesis,
    or formation of new nucleotides from ribose.
    Both of these crucial activities can only begin when ribose
    is converted to 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP).
    If ribose concentrations are not sufficient, PRPP is in low
    supply and muscle cells cannot adequately recharge.
    Although the body has the ability to manufacture ribose
    from glucose, it is a slow process which requires
    glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH), an
    enzyme typically in short supply. Supplemental ribose
    allows the body to bypass this step, rapidly supplying the
    compounds needed to boost salvage activity and enhance
    de novo synthesis.
    Ribose also offers powerful, complementary support to
    creatine by enhancing TAN pools, providing the necessary
    substrates which creatine can then convert to ATP.

    What Is The Source?

    Ribose is derived from corn or glucose fermentation.
