-Supports healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue
-Maintains normal heart function
-Decreases free radical formation during exercise
Ribose is an essential pentose (5-carbon) sugar utilized by the body to synthesize DNA, RNA and produce energy. Ribose is a fundamental building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP - the substance in which the body stores intracellular energy), the preferential source of energy for skeletal muscle and heart tissue. Studies have shown that ribose supplementation can enhance cardiac energy levels and support cardiovascular metabolism. Further studies suggest that ribose plays a role in supporting energy recovery after exercise. Exercise increases free radical production in muscle tissue. Ribose may strengthen and support the body's crucial antioxidant defenses.
