Supplement D-Ribose May Help With Muscle Fatigue
Fibromyalgia (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are debilitating syndromes that are often associated with impaired cellular energy metabolism. Fibromyalgia is characterized by muscle pain and symptoms of fatigue, tenderness and stiffness in multiple joints. The natural dietary supplement D-ribose - a form of sugar essential for the synthesis of ATP and creation of cellular energy - has significantly reduced clinical symptoms such as muscle fatigue in patients suffering from FMS and CFS. At a dose of 5 grams three times daily for 18 days, D-ribose significantly reduced clinical symptoms. D-ribose was well-tolerated, and resulted in a significant improvement in energy, sleep, mental clarity, pain intensity, and well-being.
