I started taking ribose powder a few months ago. Ribose is a precursor to ATP, which is the energy molecule used by your muscles. It takes a long time for your body to produce Ribose naturally, and if you are deficient, you will not make enough ATP for your muscles to function properly (they can't relax! yes it actually takes energy for your muscles to relax properly--think rigor mortis---which is what happens when your body stops producing ATP entirely), and they will be chronically tight, which causes lots of pain and other problems. After taking the Ribose for two weeks here's what I noticed: severe pain in spine between shoulders gone, burning flu-like aches gone, reduction in tension head/neck aches, ability to do strengthening exercises. I lost my job and lost my ability to buy the stuff and now all that's back. I was doing core strengthening exercises daily to help my back but I can't do them at all now (its like my muscles are just too weak). Has anyone else had experience with this stuff? Any ribose stories out there?

My daughter has a friend at work who has fibro and takes d-ribose. She says it is like being released from prison. I do not find it at the stores and keep meaning to go to the vitamin shoppe to look for it there. I have a scientific journal article at work about the muscle in fibromyalgia. It is a medical article and I do not understand it completely. But what I do understand tells me that our muscles are different and we have less stamina; we wear out sooner than those without fibro.

I am going to look up where to buy d-ribose now.

Sue,
here's the link to the place I got my ribose powder. http://www.nutrabio.com/Products/ribose1.htm. That's the cheapest I could find it anywhere (~17 grams for $45 I checked my local whole foods co-op yesterday and it was $33 for only 8 oz.!). if you're on the maintenance dosage (after the first 2 weeks or so) that size should last for 50 days. It usually takes about 2 weeks taking it three times a day to notice the difference. I can't wait until I have some money again so I can get it back in my system. I think insurance should cover it for people with fibro, CFIDS and heart disease. Here's a link to an article about how it works: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0NAH/is_10_37/ai_n27409843/.

I don't know a thing about d-ribose but here is a site I use to order my vitamins and the price looks great.  They have a buy one get one free...buy two get three free!
