6 Point Comments - It Cured Me

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:42:37
I felt an immediate burst of energy when I dissolved it under my tongue. I also suffered temporary light headedness an hour or so later that was relieved by a biscuit (it caused temporary hypoglycaemia). That symptom did not repeat. About three weeks later having had an infection that lasted many months I suddenly got 'flu like' aches and pains that forced me to rest a couple of days after which the infection was gone. Again that symptom did not repeat.

If you are prepared to accept this inconvenient symptoms in the short term the effect of Ribose is fantastic, it took me from bed bound most of winter to consistently being able to look after myself. Cured is possibly putting it a bit strong, but my life is drastically improved.

Helped me a lot when adrenals were good. My heart worked better, more energy.

Taking D-ribose gives me energy the NEXT day. I don't actually feel different, but I typically move around less in the next day if I don't take it.

D-Ribose initially was a huge help to my energy, but I don't feel anything now if I use it.

5mg a day, 2x a day.

It gave me a marginal increase in energy, as far as I can tell.

I also use additional doses when I experience PEM and/or lactic acid burn. It seems to help the latter quite well!

Therapeutic sugars make me feel dizzy and headachy.

This supplement set me back after I had made great improvements to my IBS through alkalising my diet. I had more difficulty sleeping due to feeling 'wired'; it felt as though there was a war going on in my body between my overheating interior and shivering exterior, along with racing pulse and generalised feeling of excessive adrenaline. My bowels became loose again and my dermatitis came back. I stopped taking it after a few days and improvement has resumed.
