What is Bioenergy Ribose?

Bioenergy Ribose, designated by the FDA as GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe), is the only patented brand of d-ribose, a simple sugar that facilitates the natural process of energy production. D-ribose stimulates the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the essential energy compound found in every cell in the body, improving energy levels, fighting fatigue and boosting cardiovascular functioning.

While the body naturally produces ribose, physical stress can deplete the body’s natural stores, and the body’s process for replenishing ribose produces undesirable consequences, including the production of lactic acid. Using a supplement that contains Bioenergy Ribose can help prevent the aches and soreness associated with elevated levels of lactic acid, allowing athletes like the Bennetts to train harder for longer.
