Category - Ribose [D-Ribose]

Ribose [D-Ribose] is an organic compound [3-carbon carbohydrate] that is involved in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate [ATP]. Manufacturers most often claim that it can improve endurance and energy, reduce muscle fatigue and increase post-workout recovery. Some studies have reported that ribose supplementation may rapidly replenish adenosine triphosphate stores and thereby improves exercise performance. However, most other studies do not support this. According to current research available it seems that ribose supplementation does not improve aerobic or anaerobic performance.
