D-Ribose is sought by those wishing to improve their athletic performance or exercise ability by boosting muscle energy (where it works synergistically with and enhances the benefits of creatine supplements), and by those with deficiencies in myoadenylate deaminase (MAD) or AMP deaminase (AMPD) seeking to prevent exercise-related symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness. Featuring a 100% pure, clinically-researched and proven form called Bioenergy RIBOSE®, this type is derived from corn.
D-Ribose (often just called ribose) is a type of natural carbohydrate -- a simple sugar (a 'pentose monosaccharide,' to be precise). It's found in many grains and vegetables as well as animal-derived foods (such as dairy), and our own bodies produce it, as well. It's the core component of riboflavin (Vitamin B-2) which our bodies use to make energy (among other things), and it's needed in all living cells, where it fuels the metabolic process for producing ATP (adenosine triphosphate: the molecules cells can break down to furnish them a usable form of energy).
