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.

It help me with not feeling tired in my head.
If I use my head a lot (fx talking to people, working with pc) I get extra tired in my head and start yawning a lot then D-Ribose can remove this tired feeling within 20 minutes. I use it every morning and night and have it in my bag so I can take when needed when I attend something social and start yawn

Chiefly valuable because it boosts the effectiveness of Creatine and keeps it working longer. I take them both three or four times a day.

Part of Sarah Myhill's recommended package. It does improve my energy supply, as I discovered when I forgot to take it for 24 hours!
