D-Ribose Powder Overview

One thing every customer seems to be looking for is more energy. While there are plenty of products that can give you a short-term boost of energy from stimulants like caffeine, there are only a few types of supplements that increase your energy and stamina by actually helping your cells create energy. Creatine is one such product and now D-ribose has emerged as a new energy supplement and a perfect complement to creatine. NOW Foods' is our most popular ribose among athletes and strength trainers, but it has also received widespread attention from health experts. D-ribose is now being used by some mainstream doctors as part of an overall treatment for a wide range of conditions that relate to low cellular energy, from chronic fatigue syndrome to heart problems. Healthy people are using it to increase overall energy levels.

D-ribose might be unfamiliar to you, but is an entirely natural compound made by your body throughout life. Technically, it's a pentose sugar, or a 5-carbon sugar (more familiar sugars like glucose and fructose have 6 carbon atoms). As part of RNA and DNA, D-ribose is needed for cell maintenance and growth. But the exciting thing about D-ribose is that it initiates the production of the critical 'energy molecule' ATP. ATP is the primary energy source for cells but is rapidly depleted in muscle tissue by strenuous exercise. Since, creatine helps to recharge spent ATP (known as ADP) and D-ribose initiates the production of ATP, combining creatine with D-ribose is a great way to support robust cellular energy levels. NOW D-ribose powder in the economical 8 oz jar is becoming a core supplement for customers looking to maximize their energy levels in a healthy way, without the drawbacks of stimulant ingredients. D-Ribose is available in tablets or powder; most people use the powder. It's a neutral tasting, slightly sweet granular powder that's very easy to take 'straight', or can be mixed into other liquids. Most people take D-ribose directly, first thing in the morning with a glass on water and a second dose later in the day. A serving of NOW D-ribose is 5 grams, and most people take 5-20 grams daily.

D-Ribose Powder Description from Now
Ribose occurs naturally in all living cells. It is a simple sugar that begins the metabolic process for ATP production. D-Ribose works synergistically with, and enhances the benefits of, creatine supplements.

Seems to be working great with creatine monohydrate

Ribose is a natural energy-producing compound that supports the production of ATP, a primary source of energy for virtually all cells. Since creatine supports the regeneration of ATP, ribose and creatine supplements complement each other. I've recently begun using ribose powder along with the creatine monohydrate that I have been using for years. I use 2 5 gram scoops twice a day, once mixed in a protein shake the other time mixed with creatine and some diluted fruit juice. My overall energy levels and stamina are great. There are no stimulant effects, I just seem to be able to work and play harder without needing a week to recover.
