Ribose is a five-carbon sugar that is found in ribonucleic acid. It is widely used for different purpose and plays an important role in the functioning of body. It is sugar that is found in living cells and RNA containing viruses. It is essential for the life activities and most biological molecules contain it. However, during the recent study, it has been found that a high amount of this sugar presence in the blood and body may have protective effects for the cardiovascular system. These are widely generated by the human body and some of the supplements which are being synthesized for the athletes also contain it to help them boost their energy level.

D ribose is a solid, sweet and water-soluble substance which is also sometimes simply referred to as ribose. However, this is just a simple sugar but body metabolizes it differently from glucose. Instead of breaking it down for energy, the body uses it to make adenosine triphosphate, popularly known as ATP which is considered to be, the main energy transporter for living cells. In addition, d-ribose is also considered to provide structure to ribonucleic acid or RNA, the molecule that helps translate genes from the DNA to make proteins which body needs.

Here is the list of medical benefits associated with d-ribose

a. Help boost energy for workouts

With the constant training or workout, there are high chances that the ATP level gets lower in the human body but d-ribose fills them up, providing the individual to workout with an improved energy level. It moves energy more quickly to the muscles while reducing the post-workout tiredness the body feels. It has been medically approved that the supplement of ribose sugar can provide with some tremendous difference in the workout routine of an individual.

b. Strengthen the cardiovascular health

D-ribose is well known to increase the ATP level in heart cells, and therefore it provides the muscles with the energy it needs to do its job. The intake of d-ribose supplements helps heart-failure patients breathe easier. In addition, it is also known to lower down bad cholesterol level by oxidizing the fat. Bad cholesterol can lead to some negative impact on the overall health of the individual including jammed arteries which results in a blocked flow of blood to the heart. Hence, d-ribose supplements can be a great help for patients who are suffering from heart or cholesterol problems.

c. Sweetens without increasing the blood sugar level

D-ribose is often considered as a natural sweetener, consumption of which won’t increase blood sugar count. The roses are widely used in the sugar alternatives to offer a sweeter taste to persons who are not bound to eat sugar.

The d-ribose which is used in the supplements is created from the fermentation of corn syrup. According to the emerging evidence and study result concludes that the use of ribose supplements plays an important role in improving the health condition of people suffering from heart failure, cardiovascular diseases and in coming future it might also play an important role in the treatment of cancer.
