- Very pleasant to take. Did not notice a big difference until I realized that I had achieved more at the end of the day.

Take 1 to 3 grams, between 1 and 3 times a day. Some people prefer to take the High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) after eating. Generally people start with a ‘loading phase’ of taking more initially, and then cut down to a level sufficient to maintain their energy levels. Athletes tend to take 1 to 2 heaped teaspoons before and after exercise. It can be used with other supplements as required.
Because of the way High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) supplies energy at cellular level, it can help repair damaged tissue quickly. Most often, damaged tissue is muscle, and muscle tissue needs as much energy as possible to repair itself. This process can be assisted by also supplementing with Xylotene® which helps our natural production of collagen.
Many people find that substituting sweeteners/household sugar with High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) is a great way to maintain their energy levels. So if you tend to use a spoonful of sugar in tea or coffee, try using a little High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) instead. It can also be sprinkled on yogurts or breakfast cereal.
D-ribose is generally considered safe for short and long term use. We do, however, strongly suggest taking medical advice before using during pregnancy and breast feeding, diabetes or before supplementing with larger amounts (15gms) after heart attacks, as may have been advised either online or by a health care professional.
High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) is based on Ribose which is a rare but essential sugar, and is the core energy source of every cell in the body. Diabetics should carefully monitor blood-sugar levels when taking High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR). As experts on rare sugars at Sweet Cures, we suggest that people do not take High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) if they are using our weight loss product, Diabetrose®. It is not recommended for diabetics because it can lower blood sugar (transiently) when combined with other blood sugar lowering medications.
CFS/ME is now thought by many researchers to have an underlying condition, mitochondrial dysfunction that accounts for many reported symptoms, the best known of which is “delayed fatigue.”
The total human body content of ATP is only about 50 grams, which must be recycled every day. The ultimate source of energy for constructing ATP is food; ATP assists in the conversion of nutrients in to energy so is part of the recycling and storage of energy. An average daily intake of 2,500 food calories equals 180 kg (400 lbs) of ATP (Kornberg, 1989, p. 65).
For various reasons, large amounts of ATP can be depleted in the heart and skeletal muscles and because it takes 72 hours to produce ATP from scratch in the body, when mitochondria recycling is significantly impaired, fatigue is inevitable.
D Ribose is uniquely beneficial in this situation because it produces low quality ATP very quickly. (Most tissues in the body, especially the heart, are unable to produce ribose fast enough to restore levels once they’ve been depleted and the body needs plenty of ribose to help it produce the ATP that supplies cells with the energy that fully restores them.
D-Ribose is not a drug. It is a simple sugar produced in the body already and used by all living cells. It is part of the building blocks that form DNA and RNA molecules, and is one of the main ingredients in the production of ATP.
All age groups may benefit from supplementing with D-Ribose because it is an essential ingredient in stimulating natural energy production, but especially older people, athletes, people recuperating from illness and injury, and those dealing with chronic or unexplained fatigue (CFS), fibromyalgia, coronary heart disease, and congestive heart failure:
Please remember, however, that ATP recycling fails for a number of reasons and CFS/ME and heart related problems are complex conditions that require medical supervision throughout.
D-Ribose has been shown in numerous studies to have beneficial effects on:
Supplementing daily with D-Ribose can help replenish energy levels and restore healthy ribose levels in nerves and muscles. This has a positive effect on ATP production in all muscles, but especially the heart.
CFS could be renamed Mitochondrial Dysfunction because that is the underlying condition, solve that and you get better.
Chronic fatigue syndrome describes fatigue that is enduring and has no other identifiable cause. Symptoms include:
66% of the patients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue syndrome who took D-ribose showed an improvement in their energy, sleep, mental clarity, pain tolerance, and sense of well-being. Among these patients, their energy levels increased about 45% and they experienced an average 30% boost in overall well-being. The researchers concluded that ribose significantly reduced clinical symptoms in these patients suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Gebhart B, JA Jorgenson. Benefit of ribose in a patient with fibromyalgia. Pharmacotherapy 2004; 24(11):1146-1648
A study in The Open Pain Journal, (2012, 5, 32-37) takes 257 patients with FM and CFSm from 53 different nationwide clinics.
According to The Open Pain Journal “D-ribose, a naturally occurring pentose carbohydrate, is a key structural component of the DNA, RNA, ATP, FADH,Coenzyme-A, and NADH needed by the mitochondria to maintain cellular energy stasis. D-ribose was shown in earlier studies to be very helpful in improving clinical outcomes in those with CFS and FMS  and in a general population of people with fatigue , and has also been reported to be effective in restoring tissue energy levels following exercise . Because of these known benefits, it was hypothesized that D-ribose would increase energy production, and therefore decrease symptoms, in patients suffering from FMS and CFS.”
Patients were assessed one week before treatment and then at one week intervals using a Visual Analog Scale (1-7 points) rating. They were asked to rate their overall wellbeing, energy, sleep, pain and cognitive function. 203 patients completed the trial and the findings were:
These improvements began in the first week of treatment and increased through the trial period.
High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) is a versatile product that has a range of users:
The first group are people with muscular disorders, where they suffer from a lack of energy - people with ME, MS, and other debilitating problems that affect the functionality of muscles. A lot of these muscular problems can be alleviated, or in some cases eliminated when the problem is lack of energy at cellular level rather than neurological.
Another group of High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) users are athletes, or people recovering from muscle trauma. Taken immediately before and after exercise, High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) prevents that muscle stiffness that often comes after strenuous exercise. An increased cellular demand for ATP can severely affect the body’s biochemistry, which may take several days to recover or may not recover at all in cases of chronic ischemia. Supplemental ribose, however, has been shown to speed up the recovery of heart and muscle ATP levels.
Another group who benefit from D Ribose are congestive heart failure patients. Please read the following and talk to your doctor:
Whilst all available research agrees on the huge benefits daily D Ribose supplementation provides please follow medical advice appropriate to your unique situation.
Meanwhile, you will almost certainly find this article interesting:
Our High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) is a superior product because of our stringent focus on COA. Sweet Cures has our High Energy D-Ribose (HEDR) produced to our specifications of absolute purity. Our view is that whilst some ribose is sold at a price we can’t even have it purified for, we won’t compromise, and our loyal customers since 2003 have always appreciated our commitment to safety and purity.
So whether you suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome or congestive heart failure or heart disease ... ( please seek medical supervision always) or whether you just want an energy boost or are you are an athlete wanting to protect yourself long-term, consider adding supplemental D-Ribose to your daily health regime. It is so easy to add to a drink or on cereal or fruit.
