* I heard about Ribose through Dr. Oz. He suggested it for energy. Being that I barely had the energy to get through the day, I thought I'd give it a shot. I was very surprised at how well it works. On days I am dragging and I can't figure out why until I realize that I forgot to add it to my morning routine. I even started adding it to my afternoon water to help me get through that afternoon slump. Last night I had so many errands to do and no drive to do them, so I added a little to my water, and was pleasantly surprised I was not only able to get through my errands, but exercise as well. It is not a TON of energy, just a little pick me up ...
* I started using Ribose about a month ago. I feel it helps with recovery after the workout. Before I started using the supplement, I felt a little drained the next morning. I don't feel that way any more.
As for the product, I made the mistake of buying ta differnet brand before I did my research. I thought I was getting a good deal on the 'sale price' of $18 for 100 grams. Roughly equals .18 cents a gram.
I found the NOW product on Netrition for far less. I bought the 1 pound container for about $38. Roughly equals .08 cents per gram.
For the same amount, you would pay roughly $81 for other brands. In these times, I try to same every penny I can. Hope this helps.
This review is specific to Ribose(D-Ribose) Powder
* This is another good Now product. I use this ribose as a substitute for sugar or artificial sweeteners in my protein shakes, chocolate concoctions, etc. To me the taste is nice and sweet and natural with no bitterness. Also, it seems to give me a nice energy boost if taken before workouts, especially for sprinting.
