Bioenergy RIBOSE is
a bioactive ingredient that energizes functional foods,
beverages, and nutraceuticals. Ribose is the vital structural
backbone of critical cellular compounds called purines and
pyrimidines. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of purines
and pyrimidines to form major cellular constituents such as our
genetic material (DNA and RNA), numerous cofactors, certain
vitamins, and, importantly, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the
"energy currency" of the cell. Ribose is the starting point for
the synthesis of these fundamental cellular compounds, and the
availability of ribose determines the rate at which they can be
made by our cells and tissues.
Bioenergy RIBOSE is unique in this metabolic role. No other
compound - whether bioactive ingredient or ethical drug - can
replace ribose in the important job of regulating the metabolic
processes involved in synthesizing purines and pyrimidines. And,
without these vital structural components, our bodies would
quickly run out of energy, could not make proteins, and our
cells would lose the ability to replicate.
Bioenergy RIBOSE is safe, clinically proven to be effective, and
is protected by a family of patents covering all known uses of
ribose in nutrition, medicine, and veterinary healthcare.
Although Bioenergy RIBOSE is a five-carbon monosaccharide, it
does not raise blood sugar, making it a good carbohydrate to use
in food and beverage formulation. Bioenergy RIBOSE is highly
soluble in either hot or cold solutions and tastes slightly
Whether products are designed to fight fatigue, help offset the
effects of aging, increase physical performance, overcome the
pain and soreness resulting from muscle overexertion and energy
drain, or simply to add energy to active lifestyle products,
Bioenergy RIBOSE adds value.
Energy to Power Metabolic
Like a computer, your body needs
energy to keep running. Energy keeps your heart beating, your
muscles contracting, and your brain and nervous system carrying
the messages that synchronize the functions of life. For the
most vital task of making the energy you need, your body
a-D-Ribofuranose (D-ribose, or simply ribose) is a five-carbon
monosaccharide that is made in every cell in your body. Ribose
stimulates the metabolic pathway used by the body to make a
class of compounds called purines and pyrimidines. These
compounds are essential for the body's production of many vital
constituents, including the genetic material DNA and RNA, and
the vital energy compound adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is
called the "energy currency" of the cell because it gives our
bodies the power to function, survive, and thrive.
ATP is critical to health and a healthy lifestyle, and ribose is
the essential component in the making of ATP in the body.
Age, illness, strenuous or
infrequent exercise, overexertion, or a host of metabolic
disorders can seriously drain ATP reserves from your cells and
tissues. And that can leave you fatigued, sore, weak, and
drained of energy.
To replace this lost energy, your body needs ribose. Ribose
forms the structural backbone of ATP, and is the starting point
for the synthesis of ATP in the body. Unfortunately, most cells
in your body, including heart and muscle cells, lack the
metabolic machinery to make ribose quickly or efficiently.
Because your body produces ribose at such an extremely slow
rate, any one of these health or physiological factors can leave
your ATP levels in short supply.
In normal, healthy tissue, several days of rest will allow
energy levels to return to normal. But, during the process,
muscles can feel tired, weak, and sore. Supplementing with
Bioenergy RIBOSE will accelerate the energy recovery process and
help overcome the impact of overexertion.
When energy demand continually outstrips supply, such as in
chronic conditions associated with many diseases or in repeated
bouts of high-intensity exercise, the natural processes of
energy recovery may not be able to keep up. In these conditions,
the metabolic support offered by Bioenergy RIBOSE will help
tissue rebuild the energy it needs to function at a higher
level. This may mean higher exercise tolerance, better oxygen
utilization and ventilatory efficiency, and a better quality of
Decades of research have shown how vital Bioenergy RIBOSE is to
energy health and wellness. Bioenergy has contributed
significantly to this scientific foundation with research
focused on heart disease, chronic muscle disease, aging, and
even athletic performance and recovery. This research has proven
the benefit of Bioenergy RIBOSE in energy synthesis and salvage,
tissue function, and overall health and wellness. Bioenergy
RIBOSE is the only compound the body can use to regulate the
important function of energy synthesis and salvage. No other
natural bioactive compound - or ethical synthetic drug - can
perform this vital metabolic function.
Bioenergy RIBOSE is safe, effective and patent protected.
Bioenergy has a family of issued and pending patents covering
all known applications for ribose in nutrition, medicine, and
veterinary healthcare. Information on the science of Bioenergy
RIBOSE is also available.
