Boost Your Energy Naturally & Fend Off “Downhill Syndrome”!
As we age, many often expect – and accept – the lower energy levels that are said to come along with the natural aging process.
But what if you didn’t have to accept that so-called “downhill syndrome”? And what if you could help boost your body’s energy levels naturally?
The good news is…no matter what your age or how long you’ve been stuck on “idle,” you can now enjoy boundless youthful energy, every day…thanks to the safe, simple, all-natural energy substance you’re about to discover below.
In fact, since the late 1970s there have been over 300 research papers and clinical studies in respected medical journals in the U.S. and Europe that show this natural substance can help restore cellular energy levels, boost cell function, boost brain function, improve blood circulation, and even strengthen your heart muscle and help prevent heart-related illnesses!
Here’s what you need to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for Targeted Nutrients…
Athletes have always been a step ahead of everyone else when it comes to the use of nutrients that enhance and promote natural energy production in the human body.
That’s because they use up so much energy in long grueling daily workouts followed by brutal competitions, they need a way to restore energy and stamina quickly and effectively, or they won’t recover in time for the next big competition.
So it came as no surprise to me when I discovered that an amazing, natural energy-boosting nutrient called D-Ribose has been a closely guarded secret among top athletes for many years now.
Indeed, until only recently it’s been completely overlooked by most doctors and natural health experts. But now it’s gaining so much popularity, almost every well-known natural health care doctor on the face of the earth recommends it, as you’ll see throughout this report!
What Is D-Ribose?
What is D-Ribose, and why is it causing such a stir? I’ll give you a brief scientific explanation first:
D-Ribose is a complex 5-carbon sugar made in the human body. It’s quite literally the fuel that kick-starts the metabolic process for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) by the mitochondria of your body’s 100 trillion cells.
ATP, of course, is the key energy molecule used by your body for peak function.
So D-Ribose, which is the specific nutrient your cells need in order to produce ATP, is the essential, natural component for your body’s basic production of energy.
Without D-Ribose, your cells cannot produce ATP, and without ATP you have no get-up-and-go.
It’s that simple.
As a natural dietary supplement, D-Ribose provides its astonishing benefits by giving the cells the fuel they need to rapidly increase ATP levels and thus restore energy levels throughout the body for long periods of time.
This is why athletes absolutely love D-Ribose after long, grueling workouts that leave them exhausted and tired. And it’s why you’re going to love it to, particularly if you suffer from low daily energy levels!
Whether you’re just feeling sluggish and rundown, or you’re a high-performance athlete looking for that extra edge, D-Ribose is truly the absolute energy source for the human body.
As noted health authority Dr. Julian Whittaker, M.D. of Whittaker Wellness Clinics has affirmed:
“…For run-of-the-mill fatigue, I vote for D-Ribose. It’s a simple sugar required in the production of ATP, the fuel that runs our cells. Low stores of D-Ribose mean less ATP can be generated, and that translates into sapped energy.
I’ve written about D-Ribose for the treatment of heart failure and fibromyalgia, but it also shores up energy levels in cells throughout the body, giving you a natural energy boost.
One D-Ribose ‘success story’ is my wife, Connie, who, like the energizer bunny, just keeps going and going.
Even though she works full time, travels with me, and is always juggling a number of additional projects, this woman never runs out of steam.
Connie says that D-Ribose noticeably perks her up, and it also improves her endurance while exercising.”
So if you’re looking for better energy levels from a safer, natural source, consider doing what Dr. Whittaker’s wife Connie does, and try some D-Ribose. You’ll be pleasantly surprised, I promise!
Works for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Heart Disease, Too!
What’s more, brand new research demonstrates that D-Ribose helps with much more than just run-of-the-mill fatigue.
It’s also a powerful and even life-changing substance for people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or other immune system deficiencies that cause overwhelming fatigue – including me.
And as you’ll see, it helps heart patients too, because it produces massive amounts of natural energy right in the heart muscle.
So stick with me, because I think you’re going to be quite surprised at just how versatile and effective D-Ribose truly is.
The “Downhill Syndrome” (And How to Conquer It!)
One problem doctors see frequently in patients with low energy levels is what’s called the “Downhill Syndrome.”
This can start when a hidden underlying condition such as a low-level infection begins to act on the body as a stressor.
The body begins to use most of its energy to keep the infection at bay. And over time, the cellular mitochondria – which produce energy for the body – become overtaxed, and fail to produce enough ATP for other essential bodily functions.
The result is that “wiped out” feeling so common to people suffering from exhaustion and fatigue.
Soon, energy levels fall dramatically as a result, and the underlying condition gains an even stronger foothold in the body.
As Life Extension Foundation puts it, simply:
“Chronic fatigue syndrome patients have faulty ATP metabolism, so it makes perfect sense to use D-Ribose to help them, as D-Ribose triggers the cellular mitochondria to produce copious amounts of ATP.”
Indeed, as your body struggles to deal with the underlying condition, its natural energy production capabilities become stretched to their limits, resulting in lower energy levels than ever before.
It becomes a vicious cycle that’s almost impossible to break once it gets started. And it can degenerate into a nasty case of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, or other degenerative conditions.
As noted D-Ribose authority Dr. Terri Butler explains:
“Under conditions of physical duress or stress, the body’s energy resources become depleted. In particular, intracellular levels of the body’s primary energy carrying molecule, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), are lowered significantly.
Since cells and organs need adequate energy in order to maintain integrity and function it’s essential that the supply of ATP be replenished soon after it’s consumed by the body.
If ATP molecules are not regenerated quickly enough to meet the body’s energy demands, energy metabolism becomes impaired.”
The result is what’s now called by doctors an “energy deficit disorder.”
The solution to avoiding an energy deficit disorder, of course, is to get your body’s energy production capabilities back up to peak levels and then keep them there so that your body has enough energy to function normally while working to conquer the underlying infection and relieve the body of the resulting stress.
Experts now understand that taking supplemental D-Ribose aids magnificently in this process. By taking safe, natural D-Ribose, flagging cellular ATP levels are restored to normal, which in turn dramatically boosts the body’s energy levels.
As Scott Rigden, M.D., noted D-Ribose advocate and author of The Ultimate Metabolism Diet, has written:
“People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia have almost 20% less energy in their muscles than normal.
And this lack of energy causes poor exercise tolerance and lack of endurance-making it difficult to perform even the most basic of life’s daily activities…
…D-Ribose is a simple sugar found naturally in our bodies, but it is not used by the body like any other sugar. Table sugar and other sugars are consumed and, with the help of oxygen, ‘burned’ by the body to recycle energy.
D-Ribose, on the other hand, is different.
When consumed as a supplement, the body recognizes that D-Ribose is different from other sugars and preserves it for the vital work of actually creating the key energy molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) that powers the brain, heart, muscles, and every other tissue in the body.
In short, supplementing with D-Ribose provides the key building block in the cell’s energy pathway to produce the ATP we require for more youthful energy levels.”
Best yet, experts attest that when energy levels are fully restored – thanks to natural D-Ribose supplementation – your body can focus on successfully overcoming any underlying stressor, including a hidden infection.
As Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of the bestselling book From Fatigue to Fantastic has stated:
“Not having enough D-Ribose in your body is like trying to build a fire without kindling-nothing happens. D-Ribose is a unique and powerful addition to our complement of metabolic therapies.
For those suffering from fatigue, muscle soreness, stiffness and a host of related medical complications the relief can be life-changing…I suspect we will find that our understanding of D-Ribose may be the most important nutrient discovery of the decade.
I’d recommend it be used in all Chronic Fatigue Syndrome cases, fibromyalgia and cardiac patients as well as athletes. Though healthy, I take it daily myself as I like the extra energy boost it gives me.”
Obviously, D-Ribose is a powerful healing tool for anyone feeling fatigued, whether from the stress on the body of an underlying infection such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or just plain, simple tiredness from life’s wears and tears.
D-Ribose is the specific nutrient the body’s entire 100 trillion cells need to begin producing higher levels of ATP, which in turn provide a dramatic boost in daily energy levels!
A Brief History: From AMP to D-Ribose
Back in the late 1980s, progressive doctors treating overwhelming fatigue or abnormally low energy levels often prescribed a series of daily injections of a substance known as AMP (adenosine monophosphate).
AMP is a chemical precursor of ATP, the body’s main energy source. Once in the body, AMP is slowly converted into ATP, which gradually boosts energy levels.
But patients soon found that the daily injections were no fun. They had to be made deep into the muscle tissue to be fully effective.
And because of the gradual nature of the AMP-to-ATP conversion process, progress toward restoring energy levels was often slow.
Then in the mid-’90s, an oral ATP supplement was produced, which became extremely popular with athletes because it allowed them to restore their energy levels quickly after extremely hard workouts.
This oral form of ATP eventually became available over-the-counter as a nutritional supplement through many health food stores. People suffering from fatigue and related chronic illness could now forego the daily AMP injections and instead take pure ATP, orally!
Unfortunately, for many people, the oral ATP supplement caused significant nausea and upset stomach, and it soon fell into disfavor.
By the end of the 1990s, the situation looked pretty bleak again for victims of chronic fatigue, low energy levels and related illnesses.
But then something happened. An American company figured out how to affordably produce D-Ribose – the simple, natural fuel the body needs to make it’s own ATP.
The new supplement was produced in a safe and stable natural form that allowed it to be sold as a nutritional supplement.
D-Ribose, being a complex 5-carbon sugar commonly produced in the human body, had none of the unwanted side effects of oral ATP supplements.
And because D-Ribose goes to work immediately in the body, fueling the mitochondria for hours and hours to produce cellular ATP, it works just as quickly and effectively as taking oral ATP.
As Dr. Linzy Scott Jr., M.D., who uses D-Ribose frequently in his practice, has stated:
“D-Ribose is astonishing newfound energy-booster that works by increasing the action of cellular mitochondria and rapidly boosting your body’s supply of ATP – pure cellular energy.
This 5 carbon sugar, active in the energy producing Krebs cycle, rapidly aids in recovery from chronic fatigue syndrome, age related energy deficits, and other energy-deficit disorders.
D-Ribose is the essential component for your body’s basic production of energy.”
As I mentioned earlier, athletes immediately recognized the value of D-Ribose, and it has rapidly become one of the most popular “underground” energy supplements among professional sports figures today!
But now the over-40 crowd has found out about this amazing, natural energy-boosting substance, and hundreds of thousands of baby boomers are now supplementing with D-Ribose and benefiting from the extra energy it provides!
3 Major Attributes Make Safe, Natural D-Ribose
THE Superior Energy Supplement of All Times!
In clinical studies, D-Ribose was found to have the following three major attributes which have made it the preferred energy booster among athletes, and now among those who suffer from fatigue, tiredness or low energy levels due to premature aging or other conditions:
✓ Quick and Efficient Absorption – Many “energy supplements” lose 60-70% or more of their dosage during the digestion process. But medical authorities say D-Ribose is so efficiently absorbed by the human body that up to 95% of a dose of D-Ribose is delivered directly into the bloodstream for transportation to cells and tissues!
✓ Short Half-Life – Unlike some substances which remain in the body for long periods of time and may produce toxicity, experts attest that D-Ribose is utilized very quickly by the body, and produces no known toxicity.
✓ Well Tolerated – D-Ribose is surprisingly well tolerated by the body. Tests show normal blood pressure, heart rate and blood analysis after long-term usage of D-Ribose, according to the experts.
This makes D-Ribose unique from any other energy-boosting nutrient. And it means you can rest assured of its effectiveness and its safety.
As MedicalNewsToday.com has written:
“D-Ribose is a unique sugar made by the body to synthesize many important compounds, including DNA, RNA, and, most importantly, ATP, the ‘energy currency’ of the cells.
ATP is critical to health and maintaining normal energy-dependent body functions. Ribose is the essential component in the making of ATP.”
As more and more news about the amazing, natural energy-producing capabilities of D-Ribose is brought to light, other phenomenal healing benefits are being discovered.
Ribose and Heart Disease
For example, recent research shows that D-Ribose increases ATP production in muscles – including the heart muscle – by a whopping 300% to 400%.
According to scientists and doctors, this means that many heart disease patients can greatly benefit from supplemental D-Ribose.
As Dr. Stephen Sinatra, M.D., well-known cardiologist, bestselling author of The Sinatra Solution, and staunch D-Ribose advocate has written:
“What D-Ribose does is helps fuel the regeneration of energy when your body can’t create it quickly enough…
…You’ll feel an increase in your energy level and you’ll be promoting cardiac efficiency, strength, and function.
D-Ribose promotes rapid exercise recovery, supports healthy energy levels in the heart and muscles, and promotes cellular energy.”
One result of poor cardiovascular health is ischemia, a condition where poor blood flow to and from the heart greatly decreases the amount of oxygen reaching various tissues in the body.
When ischemia occurs, the body’s cells do not get the oxygen they need to properly burn energy-producing fuels (such as ATP).
Energy levels then plummet, putting more and more stress on the heart, and further reducing energy that would normally be available for everyday life.
Medical researchers have demonstrated that during periods of ischemia, ATP levels can plummet by as much as 50 percent or more.
And medical research further demonstrates that even when the ischemia is stabilized, it may take as many as seven to ten days for ATP levels to return to normal.
This is why, for many patients with cardiovascular disease, even the simplest activities required for daily living may be difficult. The body is simply not producing the needed energy. This makes energy recovery a major concern for heart disease patients.
But in one study researchers have recently discovered that supplemental D-Ribose allows the heart to recover a whopping 85 percent of its ATP levels within 24 hours!
And another study found that, following a heart attack, supplemental D-Ribose helped ATP levels and heart function return to normal within only two days.
This is absolutely astonishing, considering the fact that in heart patients without supplemental D-Ribose, heart function was still depressed after four weeks!
At present more than 150 peer-reviewed published studies attest to the fact that D-Ribose effectively increases ATP while improving performance in heart and muscle cells during periods of lowered blood flow or low oxygen (ischemia).
As Johnny Bowden, author of The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth has written:
“When you give D-Ribose to patients with ischemia, energy recovery and function can return to normal in an average of one to two days.”
And as noted D-Ribose advocate Dr. Martha Grout, M.D., of the Arizona Center for Advanced Medicine has stated:
“D-Ribose, a naturally occurring sugar that feeds the heart muscle. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) exists in all our cells; it is the primary energy source for many metabolic processes. Your body needs D-Ribose to make ATP.”
And as Dr. Hyla Cass, M.D., has stated:
“Often, when people have things like heart failure, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome they are actually deficient in D-Ribose.
By taking D-Ribose several times a day you can get some really good results. It’s safe…no harmful side effects…only benefits.”
What this means is that natural supplemental D-Ribose can help the heart rebuild energy, as well as the rest of the body, and millions of Americans may significantly benefit from its effects.
As Wiki.MedPedia.com states:
“D-Ribose is an excellent nutrient for enhancing energy production, and is recommended for all CFS/FMS patients as well as patients with heart disease. A recently published study showed that D-Ribose increased energy an average of 45% in patients with heart disease.”
The bottom line is that D-Ribose can help dramatically improve the quality of life for persons suffering from certain cardiac conditions such as ischemia, as well as those suffering from everyday fatigue and malaise.
Ribose Helps Blood Cells Live Longer
Another amazing discovery is that D-Ribose may help blood cells live longer. This has tremendous implications for using D-Ribose as an anti-aging supplement.
What triggered this discovery is research by Dr. Daniel Ericson M.D., a former Mayo Clinic hematologist who teamed up with a biotechnology lab called Via-Cyte to find ways to extend the life of blood platelets used in blood transfusions and organ transplants.
Platelets for transfusions and transplants are only viable for a few days, after which they lose their effectiveness and cannot be used. This often leaves hospitals in chronic short supply.
But Dr. Ericson and his team found that D-Ribose acts as a preservative agent for platelets, slowing the aging process during storage. He states that D-Ribose was found to “significantly enhance the function of blood platelets for transfusion.”
After only five days of storage, platelet function is normally reduced to a mere 5% or less. But when D-Ribose is included in the mix, platelets retain an astonishing 90% of their function after five days, and 80% after seven days.
Furthermore, harmful bacterial growth was dramatically inhibited in the D-Ribose treated blood platelet samples, according to Dr. Ericson!
D-Ribose and Brain Function
According to noted D-Ribose authority Jerry Brainum, the body requires D-Ribose for a number of other critical functions.
For example, D-Ribose is used by the body to make glucose, the most elemental sugar in the body, which circulates in the blood, and which the brain needs in prodigious quantities each day in order to function correctly.
Without adequate supplies of glucose to the brain, mental acuity (clarity of mind) goes down the tubes. This is why many people who use D-Ribose swear that it increases their ability to think clearly almost immediately.
“It was like a light going on in my head,” one recent convert to D-Ribose told us. That’s because added D-Ribose helps the brain produce ATP energy right in the brain cells!
As Dr. Sarah Myhill, Associate Specialist at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Britain explains:
“Even when glucose supply is plentiful, production of D-Ribose in the cells by the glucose pentose shunt can be very slow.
D-Ribose as a nutritional supplement is therefore useful because it is immediately available for the generation of new ATP.”
“Needed for Life Itself!”
According to Brainum, D-Ribose also converts enzymatically to a substance called pyruvate, which along with oxygen is vital to the body’s energy-producing cycle, called the Kreb’s cycle, or citric acid energy cycle.
Still another vital use of D-Ribose is in the formation of nucleotides, which, in turn, are needed for a number of vital functions including energy production…synthesis of protein glycogen and nucleic acids…electrolyte metabolism…fat oxidation…and hormone-cell interactions.
In short, D-Ribose is needed for life itself!
But What Can You Expect from D-Ribose?
Since the late 1970’s over 300 research papers and clinical studies published in respected medical journals in the U.S. and Europe show D-Ribose can help naturally restore cellular energy…boost cell function…improve blood circulation…and even strengthen your heart muscle and help prevent heart-related illnesses!
Indeed, in a groundbreaking study performed by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, 41 patients diagnosed with either Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome were given D-Ribose.
These were people with hardcore energy deficit symptoms, struggling through life.
During the study, their energy levels, sleep, mental clarity, pain intensity and overall well-being were carefully monitored. The result? A whopping 66% of the patients experienced significant improvement in each area monitored. And patients reported an average of 45% increase in energy levels!
The study concluded:
“D-Ribose significantly reduced clinical symptoms in patients suffering from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.”
In other words, energy levels soared!
So if you’d really like to regain some of that youthful vim, vigor and vitality, D-Ribose may be exactly what you need. Even if you just suffer from mild daytime fatigue and need an extra, energy boost, D-Ribose is the safe, natural way to obtain it!
You’ll begin to feel its astonishing array of benefits almost immediately because of its ability to boost production of the powerful ATP energy molecules from literally every cell in your body.
Where to Get Pure, Laboratory-Grade D-Ribose
The bottom line is that there’s absolutely nothing else like D-Ribose out there. It’s quite literally the ultimate natural energy source, because it’s what your body already uses to produce cellular energy.
By “topping off” your D-Ribose levels each day, your body’s 70 trillion cells will have fuel to spare, meaning they’ll be able to produce all of the ATP your body needs to function at peak, youthful levels again.
