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.

I'm having a low dose (1g) chewable tablets 2-4 times per day. I've noticed that it helps a lot with muscle aches and muscle recovery - before d-ribose I would do 20 squats one day then have aching legs the next day, after d-ribose I do 20 squats one day and feel no aching the next day.

Overall I'm less achy and able to physically recover from exertion a lot quicker and more easily than before.

No placebo here, I have tried dozens and dozens of supplements.D-ribose at 5grams give a small but noticeable boost in energy.I like to combine it with caffeine.

Does give energy to the day. Don't seem to have any payback after.

It made me more sleepy. The exact opposite of what I was taking it for. Not sure why. But it is not the first time a supplement meant to energise me has put me to sleep instead...
