Ribose 150 gram
D-ribose is a simple 5-carbon monosaccharide used by all living cells as an essential compound in cellular energy metabolism. Ribose, needed to synthesize adenine nucleotides, is the carbohydrate backbone of genetic material - DNA and RNA, certain vitamins, and other important cellular compounds. Without ribose, tissues could not produce these life giving compounds. Adenine nucleotides are required by heart, muscle and other tissue to make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the primary source of energy used by all cells to maintain normal health and function. When the pool of adenine nucleotides is depressed by disease or strenuous exercise or activity, the level of energy available to the cell is compromised. A reduction in cellular energy level can lead to diminished function and reduced physiological health.
All the necessary compounds for life are made in the body through a series of complicated biochemical metabolic pathways. Ribose is no different. In the body, ribose is made from glucose (a simple 6-carbon sugar) through a pathway called the Pentose Phosphate Pathway (PPP) or Hexose Monophosphate Shunt (HMS). This is the same pathway that makes xylitol, a six carbon sugar. Unfortunately, in heart and muscle cells important enzymes that regulate the activity of this pathway are lacking. As such, forming ribose in heart and muscle cells is a slow process. As a result heart and muscle tissues are unable to replace energy pools quickly once they have been depleted by disease or exercise. If the cellular energy pool is depleted by disease or exercise it must be replaced. PRPP is required to turn on the metabolic pathway used by the body to replenish these energy pools. Supplemental ribose bypasses the slow and rate limiting Pentose Phosphate Pathway,forms PRPP, and quickly begins the process of energy synthesis. The bottom line is that ribose should be considered for athletes, weekend warriors, those with cardiovascular weakness, anyone with poor circulation, post cardiac surgery, ischemia or loss of blood flow to the heart, and energy deficits such as chronic fatigue syndrome.
