Bioenergy Life Science, maker of patented Bioenergy Ribose, announces that four champion athletes – triathletes Greg and Laura Bennett, rower Susan Francia, and Nordic combined skier Billy Demong – have joined a growing roster of high-profile professionals who are members of its 2013 Team Ribose. These award-winning endurance athletes will be featured in various promotions and events throughout the year.
“Team Ribose members not only include elite athletes preparing for their next competition, but also busy parents trying to keep pace with their children’s schedules, business people who have found a way to overcome that afternoon slump, college students needing to stay focused and alert in class, food and beverage manufacturers who add ribose to their delicious formulations, and retailers who make room for ribose-fortified products on their store shelves,” explained Bioenergy Life Science President Tom VonderBrink.
Olympians and world-class triathletes Greg and Laura Bennett, who recently made headlines on winning the Ironman 70.3 in Raleigh, have re-joined the company’s promotional team for a second year. The husband-and-wife phenoms continue their enthusiasm about how supplementing with Bioenergy Ribose has helped them to maintain high energy levels during exercise, increase endurance, speed recovery time, and reduce muscle stiffness and soreness.
Two-time Olympic champion, world champion and world-record holder in rowing Susan Francia has also re-joined Team Ribose for her second year. Francia says competitive racing is rigorous, and that Bioenergy Ribose helps her recover after the race and feel fresh for the next race.
America’s best-ever Nordic Combined skier, Billy Demong is a four-time Olympian and Gold and Silver medalist, a 21-time World Cup Medalist (nine of which are gold), a record-setting nine-time U.S. World Team member and an eight-time U.S. National Champion. He is also an avid cyclist. “I started taking the product several months ago, and through periods of huge volume base-building phase and recovery from all of the endurance training and strength sessions is critical,” says Demong. “I’ve noticed a remarkably shortened turnaround time between finishing long hard sessions and feeling recovered to go again. I have an enhanced ability to work harder day after day with each day starting off feeling fresh and ready.”
Bioenergy Ribose, a five-carbon monosaccharide, is a functional ingredient that is gaining the attention of food and beverage manufacturers. Unlike most sugars which fuel energyrecycling, Bioenergy Ribose drives energy maintenance and recovery by making energy compounds and keeping them in muscle cells. It has a negative glycemic index and does not raise blood sugar levels.
An all-natural substance, Bioenergy Ribose presents a broad spectrum of opportunities. It has a slightly sweet taste, no after taste, and is highly soluble in hot or cold solutions, allowing for easy incorporation into the formulations of a variety of nutritional products.
Bioenergy Ribose is manufactured by Bioenergy Life Science to the highest industry standards. It is FDA GRAS-affirmed (Generally Recognized As Safe), and is certified pure.It is also Kosher certified, Halal, allergen free and non-GMO.
