People suffering from cardiac and other debilitating health problems often exhibit severely depleted cellular energy in heart and muscle tissue, which can greatly impair normal daily functions.
The primary source of energy for all cellular processes is a molecule known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Healthy, active cells constantly replenish their supply of ATP to produce vital cellular energy.96 However, under conditions of stress, injury, or aging, critical body tissues such as heart and skeletal muscles cannot produce ATP quickly enough to perform optimally.
D-ribose, a carbohydrate molecule found in every living organism, facilitates the production of ATP.97
In studies of healthy athletes as well as those who have suffered injury to the heart muscle, supplying fatigued muscle cells with D-ribose quickly restored ATP levels to normal.98-100 By helping to rapidly refill depleted energy stores, D-ribose may be especially beneficial for people coping with cardiac and other problems marked by impaired cellular energy production.
D-Ribose Caps and D-Ribose Powder can help speed energy recovery, increase energy reserves and maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue.
Life Extension D-Ribose Benefits:
- Help speed energy recovery
- Increase energy reserves
- Maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue

This is a pretty good supplement, and the brand that makes it is a great brand. Dr. Oz is someone that I trust and respect, so if he says that a supplement has benefits then I am going to take his word on it and do my own research. What I have discovered with this supplement is that it is not an energy supplement. Yes, it may help with overall energy levels, but that does not mean that when you take it it will give you the type of short burst energy like caffeine does. This is to improve overall energy, so do not expect to get a buzz from this. Pretty good supplement.
