Ribose

During intense training in bodybuilding, weightlifting, martial arts and many others, the athletes can have a significant reduction in resource bioenergy in cardiac and skeletal muscle.

Ribose is a dietary supplement, which helps to increase energy levels and ATP. For maximum energy production, peak physical performance your organism should to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is an essential for your muscles and heart. Our body uses as sources of energy various fatty acid and glucose. Level ATP decreases after physical exercise. Scientific research shows that Ribose helps to increase ATP and energy levels.

About Ribose

Ribose can be used in pure form or as part of specialized sports nutrition products. Ribose is a carbohydrate having formula C5H10O5. It is a crystalline solid with a sweet taste, readily soluble in water. Ribose molecule can exist in several spatial forms, but in biologically active compounds in the body, it is present only in one of them, called D-ribose. D-ribose is present in all living cells, as part of many important biological substances related to providing educational proteins in cells, the transfer of hereditary traits, as well as the synthesis of a number of enzyme systems and vitamins.
D-ribose is the central fragment of the molecule ATP, which is the source of energy for muscle contraction. Without D-ribose the body can not synthesize ATP.  D-ribose can be regarded as a monosaccharide, which is synthesized in the human body. Therefore, D-ribose is non-toxic. Consumption of Ribose is safe.
