Solgar proudly introduces D-Ribose Powder. Just 1 teaspoon offers approximately 2.2 grams of D-ribose for heart, muscle, and energy support.

D-ribose (ribose) is a natural five-carbon sugar that is present in every cell of the body. Ribose is a crucial component in the energy process because it makes energy compounds and keeps them in cells. Only ribose performs this vital cellular function.

Ribose is the fundamental building block of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the chief compound for energy storage in the body. ATP levels in the heart need to be replenished, so it is important to maintain the proper ribose levels for proper energy support. Each cell of the body must make its own ribose supply but most (with the exception of the liver, adrenal cortex, mammary tissue, and adipose tissue) lack the metabolic machinery to do so quickly. Therefore, ribose supplementation may be important as this nutrient plays a key role in helping to maintain cellular energy.

Research has shown D-ribose's positive effects on heart support, muscle support, and tissue energy synthesis. Several studies indicate ribose has a clear benefit in muscle health and recovery from athletic performance.
