Ribose Powder (250 g) (Expires 3/20)

SKU P314-250EXP
Brand Pure Encapsulations
Unit Size 250 g
Dosage 1–2 scoops per day, 30 minutes before or following an exercise session, or in divided doses before and after exercise. On days with no exercise scheduled, take in the evening before bedtime.
Properties Research indicates that nucleotides decrease after repeated, intense exercise and that they may not be recovered for up to several days, leaving muscle without the ability to refuel energy stores. Numerous studies demonstrate the ability of ribose to increase levels of the nucleotides AMP, ADP and ATP, which are depleted during strenuous physical activity or by lack of oxygen to working muscle. Skeletal and cardiac muscle rely on these metabolites for energy, and two metabolic mechanisms preserve these pools. The first mechanism involves salvaging end products of AMP breakdown, or preventing them from leaving the cell. If they are salvaged, they may be recycled back to AMP and ultimately to ATP. The second mechanism for preserving nucleotide pools is de novo synthesis, or formation of new nucleotides from ribose. Both of these crucial activities can only begin when ribose is converted to 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP). If ribose concentrations are not sufficient, PRPP is in low supply and muscle cells cannot adequately recharge. Although the body has the ability to manufacture ribose from glucose, it is a slow process which requires glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH), an enzyme typically in short supply. Supplemental ribose allows the body to bypass this step, rapidly supplying the compounds needed to boost salvage activity and enhance de novo synthesis.
Contraindications If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. In a small number of instances, diarrhea, gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, and headache have been reported with ribose supplementation. Ribose may have a hypoglycemic effect, which appears to be transient and clinically non-significant. It is advised that diabetics be supervised closely by their healthcare practitioner.
Actions Accelerates replenishment of depleted adenine nucleotide pools, keeps ATP levels at their peak, and provides rapid regeneration of critical energy molecules for maximal training or cardiovascular support.

Description

Over 150 studies demonstrate the ability of ribose, a pentose sugar found in all living cells, to increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels and total adenine nucleotide (TAN) recovery, promoting skeletal and cardiac muscle energy metabolism. Ribose is the key compound used by the body to form the nucleotides AMP, ADP and ATP, which are depleted during strenuous physical activity or from lack of oxygen. Skeletal and cardiac muscle rely on these metabolites for energy, and two metabolic pathways preserve these pools. The first mechanism involves salvaging end products of AMP breakdown, or preventing them from leaving the cell. If they are salvaged, they may be recycled back to AMP and ultimately to ATP. The second mechanism for preserving nucleotide pools is de novo synthesis, or formation of new nucleotides from ribose. Both of these crucial activities can only begin when ribose is converted to 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP). If ribose concentrations are not sufficient, PRPP is in low supply and muscle cells cannot adequately recharge. Although the body has the ability to manufacture ribose from glucose, it is a slow process which requires glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G- 6-PDH), an enzyme typically in short supply. Supplemental ribose allows the body to bypass this step, rapidly supplying the compounds needed to boost salvage and enhance de novo synthesis. Research indicates that nucleotides decrease after repeated, intense exercise and that they may not be recovered for up to several days, leaving muscle without the ability to refuel energy stores. Ribose also offers powerful, complementary support to creatine by enhancing TAN pools, providing the necessary substrates which creatine can then convert to ATP.*
