D-Ribose with Peak ATP® from Progressive Laboratories is a simple sugar made in the body from glucose.  Ribose plays an important role in the synthesis of RNA, DNA and the energy-containing substance adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  It is used to improve athletic performance and the ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy.  It has also been used to improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease.‡

Ribose has been used to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise in people with an inherited disorder called myoadenylate deaminase deficiency (MAD) or AMP deaminase deficiency (AMPD deficiency).  Ribose has also been used to improve exercise ability in people with another inherited disorder called McArdle’s disease.‡

Healthcare providers sometimes give ribose intravenously (by IV) as part of an imaging procedure used to measure the extent of damaged heart muscle in people with coronary artery disease.  Ribose has also been used intravenously in patients with MAD to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness.‡

Ribose is an energy source that the body makes from food.  There is some evidence that supplemental ribose might prevent muscle fatigue in people with genetic disorders that prevent sufficient energy production by the body.  It might provide extra energy to the heart during exercise in people
with heart disease.‡
