Great for fatigueI have chronic Lyme’s disease and have extreme fatigue. I also taking meds for hormone positive breast cancer which adds to the fatigue. This brand of D-ribose is tasteless in my morning coffee. This really helps me feel less tired. I have been taking this brand for 5 years. It dissolves easily in my coffee.
This gives enough energy which helps during workouts. However, following a recent blood test I noticed an elevation in the hemoglobin glycated Hb1ac. After doing some researches, it appears that D Ribose supplements cause an elevation to Hb1ac levels. So I had to stop this and switch to pure creatine monohydrate.
D-ribose is an essential building block of the energy molecule ATP, made in our hard-working mitochondria. I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, where my mitochondria are on permanent holiday. I'm currently taking 5g a day, and have been advised to take it up to 20g. I'm a little concerned at the effects 20mg may have on my sleep, so I'm taking it slow. D-ribose is a sugar-like molecule, so it tastes great without being sickly sweet. Another winner from Drs Best, with their usual high quality and standards found in their ingredients.
Good quality. I use it for energy levels as I have chronic fatigue. I'm not quite sure if it really makes a difference. It is unflavoured but the natural taste is sweet. It doesn't taste good or bad - just sweet. Good package size and not too expensive, although it is not the cheapest brand. However in comparison to Lake Avenue brand it dissolves much more easily and does not go hard in the container. .
I only just recently received my order, and it is the first time using the product, so I have not experienced the full benefits of taking d-ribose powder, there is little to no taste. I have purchased the Doctors best brand before, and it's good quality and value for money. good size container and packaged well.
I’m using this along with the Malic Acid to help me manage fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue inflammations. I have used D-Ribose on and off but this one seems to be a better quality than some of the ones I have used in the past. I haven’t had an reaction from the ingredients. I take it first thing in the morning to give me the much needed energy boost and its practically tasteless, so doesn’t affect my drinks. I sometimes put a coop in my tongue for a quick boost when I’m in a hurry because it taste okay.
Anyone struggling with Long Covid, ME/CFS or who are just tired all the time, D-ribose is your friend. It feeds the ATP in our mitochondria cells aka our energy factories, something which has gone to sleep a bit in us. There are no silver bullets but I do feel a difference when I take this powder. I take anywhere from 1-3 servings a day depending on symptoms. It tastes naturally sweet, so it’s easy to take. I like it straight in water or as a natural sweetener in tea. Great price, quality and a good amount of powder. Highly recommend!
i tried this for shortness of breath, as i made a correlation between heart health and shortness of breath, does seem to minimize my shortness of breath, although ubiquinol works better for me to relieve my shortness of breath, this is probably better if ur using for sports and it's quite expensive if you must take it twice/day
