What Is It?
D-ribose is a naturally occurring five-carbon sugar that is found in all living cells. It is a building block of nucleic acids, which are the building blocks for DNA and RNA. It is also a precursor for adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the 'molecular currency' of cellular energy, providing energy for every move and chemical reaction made by the body. Magnesium is an important mineral that also helps stabilize ATP and DNA. Ribogen Mg provides a large dose of D-ribose supplemented with a small dose of magnesium.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Ribogen Mg is primarily designed to support energy production and muscle function. Magnesium and d-ribose together in one formula provide a precursor for ATP (cellular energy) while boosting the capacity for the cells to use that energy. Supplemental D-ribose results in marked improvements in cardiac energy metabolism as well as improved physical function and quality of life.
Who Should Take It?
Ribogen Mg can benefit for those with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, athletes, bodybuilders and those with cardiovascular dysfunction.
Take 1 scoop one to four times per day with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
