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 movement and chemical reaction made by the body. D-Ribose has been studied in heart failure, fibromyalgia and exercise performance as a way to improve muscle energy production. Magnesium is an important mineral that also helps stabilize ATP and DNA.
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 it. They can help improve heart function, enhance athletic performance and reduce muscle pain. Ribogen Mg can benefit those with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, athletes, bodybuilders and those with cardiovascular dysfunction.
AOR’s Ribogen Mg provide a unique combination of nutrients in a convenient powder that allows for flexible dosing to suit individual needs. The moderate dose of magnesium allows for muscle function and relaxation without causing the gastrointestinal side effects common to higher doses of magnesium.
Ribogen Mg helps in the maintenance of proper muscle function, and is a workout supplement, providing a source of carbohydrates to support energy production, and helping to promote endurance in extended, high-intensity exercise.
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or any animal byproduct.
For proper muscle function and good health, take one to four scoops daily, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner. For workout support, energy, and endurance in high intensity exercise take three to four scoops daily. Mix product well in one to two cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption. Take with or without food.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ensure to adequately hydrate before, during, and after exercise.

D-Ribose and Cardiovascular Ischemia
The effectiveness of D-Ribose has been demonstrated in the gold standard of scientific study; double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials. In one study of 20 men (aged 45 to 69) with severe documented coronary artery disease (CAD) and a history of angina induced by normal daily activities, 60 grams of D-Ribose (in four doses of 15 grams each) were tested against a placebo. Treated subjects exhibited improvement as measured electrocardiographically, and time to onset of moderate angina (during exercise testing) increased significantly in the ribose-treated subjects. The authors concluded: “In patients with CAD, administration of ribose by mouth for three days improved the heart’s tolerance to ischemia. The presumed effects on cardiac energy metabolism offer new possibilities for adjunctive medical treatment of myocardial ischemia.” In another study involving 15 patients with coronary heart disease and congestive heart failure, it was found that 15 grams of D-ribose daily for three weeks resulted in improved diastolic heart function as well as increased scores in physical function and quality of life.
D-Ribose and Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Fybromyalgia (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are debilitating conditions that have been diagnosed with increasing frequency, especially since the late 1980′s. The aforementioned role of D-Ribose in the composition and generation of ATP has led to the hypothesis that it may be of assistance to patients suffering from these conditions. Scientists put this hypothesis to the test in 2006 when 41 patients diagnosed with FMS and/or CFS were given 15 grams of D-Ribose daily for 19 days. The results were that 66% of the patients experienced ‘significant improvement’ in all five categories of a standardized Visual Analogue Scale questionnaire (VAS): energy; sleep; mental clarity; pain intensity; and well-being. The patients experienced an average increase of 45% in energy and 30% in well-being.
D-Ribose and Exercise
D-Ribose also has benefits for healthy people who are in need of extra energy. A double blind, placebo-controlled trial observed the effects of supplemental ribose on body composition and exercise performance. 20 healthy, young male recreational bodybuilders aged 18-35 were given 10g/day D-Ribose (5g before and after training) for four weeks. Training involved participation in a heavy-resistance program designed to increase skeletal muscle mass. There was a significant increase in the total work performed and in 1-RM bench press strength at the end of the study compared to the beginning in the D-Ribose group. These changes were not seen in the placebo group, leading researchers to conclude that the supplementation contributed to increases in muscular strength and exercise performance.
D-Ribose is extremely well-tolerated in human trials, and its fundamental role in the make-up and synthesis of ATP continues to attract interest from the scientific community for the study of an increasing number of health conditions affected by energy metabolism.
