D-Ribose – Ribose is a kind of sugar that is produced by the body and is an energy source that the body can make from food. The body uses ribose to make ATP, a compound found in every cell in our bodies that gives us energy. The adenine portion of ribose is used to recycle ATP over and over, an important step in staying energized and amped up to attack your workout. Supplemental ribose may help to prevent muscle fatigue and provide extra energy to the heart during exercise.
Q. What is Ribose and How Does it Work?
A. Ribose is a simple sugar produced in the body that is used by all living cells. It is part of the building blocks that form DNA and RNA molecules, and is one of the crucial ingredients in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
Q. Why is ATP Important?
A. ATP is the energy currency of all cells, essentially the body’s primary energy carrying molecule that is the result of the body’s conversion of nutrients to usable energy.

Ribose is needed for ATP production.
