Health Notes

Ribose

Ribose
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

    Comments about NOW NUTRITION Now® Sports D-Ribose:

    Being a "shift" worker, I was frequently too tired at the end of my work day to get in my workout. A friend said he heard about D-Ribose on TV. After a little research I gave Now Nutrition D-Ribose a try and could not be more pleased. I take one early in the morning as soon as I get to work, another shortly after lunch, and a third about thirty minutes before I get to the gym and I have had no more issues with fatigue being a factor at the gym.

    I haven't taken this supplement long enough to determine if I'm seeing an effect or not. Cannot recommend to a friend because I don't know yet whether or not it works for me.
