Ribose Can Boost Energy Relieve Pain and More

Many people have so much pain and fatigue that they think they’re going to have to quit their jobs. However, a lot of them have found that taking ribose makes them feel as if a huge weight has been lifted from their chest and they are ready to take on the complexities of their careers again. According to Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, this type of relief is very common when patients with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or heart disease take ribose. Not only is Teitelbaum a physician, he is also a researcher. He describes ribose as a key molecule that must be present in order to convert food into energy.

Among those people with heart disease, lack of energy makes the heart exert more effort with each necessary beat needed to pump sufficient blood, which leads to further damage. However, ribose helps to correct this problem, with decades of research supporting this claim. One example is a study that was published in the European Journal of Heart Failure, in which the condition of fifteen heart disease patients was shown to improve significantly after three weeks of ribose therapy.

Additionally, the patients were able to be much more physically active. Other studies published in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology on heart patients have found that ribose improves the ability to breathe, which is also a predictor of prolonged life. The ribose supplement enabled heart patients to exercise because they no longer suffered from as much fatigue, which improved their overall quality of life.

By enhancing energy production with ribose, one can relieve pain as well as fatigue. As muscles get energy depleted, they get stuck in the shortened position, which is one of the most common causes of pain throughout the United States. When energy is restored in the muscles they are able to relax and the pain then goes away. One study done by Teitelbaum published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine tested ribose on 41 patients who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia and/or CFS, as they are some of the most energy-depleted states seen.

Teitelbaum and his research team found that ribose increased energy levels by an average of 45 percent. Dr. Teitelbaum claims to never have seen a single nutrient do anything so dramatic, even after researching CFS and fibromyalgia for about 30 years. What is interesting is that ribose also supports restful sleep. It may seem counterintuitive that when your body can’t produce enough energy, muscles can’t relax, and sleep troubles may results. Ribose also allows athletes or anyone who works out intensely to have more stamina and recover more rapidly from exercise without having as many sore muscles.

Teitelbaum recommends that one uses a capsule or powdered form of ribose and takes a higher dosage at first, as it increases cellular levels of the nutrient. This can be followed by a lower maintenance dose. The first three weeks should consist of taking 5 grams three times daily, with the frequency being reduced to twice daily after the three weeks. For fatigue or heart conditions, one should take ribose three times daily for up to six weeks.
