Bioenergy Ribose Found to Improve Vitality, Aerobic Fitness and Mental Outlook
Nutritional Supplement Offers Promising Results for Tired Baby Boomers
In a study involving ten healthy adult subjects–aged 50-65–participants consumed Bioenergy Ribose in water, twice daily for two weeks. Both subjective (questionnaires) and objective (cardiopulmonary exercise testing) assessments were performed before starting and after taking D-ribose for one and two weeks.
After two weeks of Bioenergy Ribose(TM) supplementation, subjective assessments revealed a feeling of less fatigue and an improvement in mental outlook. Cardiopulmonary testing showed that during exercise, oxygen use improved, breathing was easier and work performance increased–indicating a trend toward overall improved aerobic fitness. Researchers reported that oral Bioenergy Ribose(TM) was well tolerated with no observed adverse effects.
The study focused on older adults because research has shown that aging tissue has fewer mitochondria, the cell’s power source, where energy is generated. The findings demonstrated that D-ribose supplementation appears to be an effective energy booster for healthy adults, and in effect, helps counter fatigue, a common effect of aging.
D-ribose is a naturally occurring five-carbon sugar the body uses as the foundation for adenosine triphosphate (ATP)–the compound that carries energy throughout cells and powers all its functions. Although ribose is produced by the body, it is synthesized very slowly and the rate cannot be accelerated. ATP, the energy molecule, is broken down during certain times of demanding exercise, stress, or as a result of severe chronic diseases. Supplemental D-ribose has been found to be an effective solution for optimizing ATP recovery under all conditions.
“We’re very encouraged about these results,” said Raj Khankari, PhD, CEO of Bioenergy, Inc. “Bioenergy Ribose(TM) improved subjects’ vitality and enhanced their quality of life. In our stressful, multi-tasking lives, ribose supplementation can relieve fatigue and restore energy as well as positive mental outlook.” Consumers can find Bioenergy Ribose(TM) in a number of dietary supplements including Corvalen(R) or a vast array of energy drinks and functional waters including VitaminEnergy,
