Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. is the maker of the only patented and clinically-proven form of ribose on the market: Bioenergy Ribose®. D-Ribose, a five-carbon carbohydrate, is vital for the cellular synthesis of ATP - the source of all cellular energy. Bioenergy Ribose, a functional ingredient already popular in an array of beverages and supplements, is gaining attention of food manufacturers for its energy enhancement benefits. It helps accelerate energy recovery and improves endurance in muscles where energy stores have been depleted, reduces fatigue and alleviates muscle stiffness.
For serious athletes, recovery time is paramount. High-intensity exercise drains muscle energy pools, contributing to delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS), exertional fatigue, loss of peak performance and tissue damage. Clinically proven Bioenergy Ribose shortens recovery time, enhances endurance, reduces muscle soreness and limits the onset or severity of fatigue. Olympic athletes including rower Susan Francia, Nordic combined skier Billy Demong, and triathletes Greg & Laura Bennett all use Bioenergy Ribose to help them keep moving, train harder and stay in the game.
Bioenergy Ribose isn't just for the elite athlete. A recent study suggests that Bioenergy Ribose ingestion led to greater performance than the controller (Dextrose) over three days of high-intensity exercise. More importantly, Bioenergy Ribose helps previously untrained individuals or individuals who do not exercise regularly to adapt to physical stress by reducing muscle strain and cellular damage associated with strenuous exercise. Bioenergy Ribose also significantly lowers the perceived exertion of untrained individuals, leading to better workouts and more performance gains in the study.
A randomised, placebo-controlled trial of Baby Boomers complaining of persistent fatigue showed that Bioenergy Ribose reinvigorated subjects, providing them with new energy and greater exercise tolerance. In the two-week study, subjects were given 3g doses twice a day of either Bioenergy Ribose or dextrose. Results were evaluated using submaximal cardiopulmonary exercise tests given at baseline, one week, and two weeks. The results were overwhelming: the Bioenergy Ribose-supplemented group improved in three major measures of fitness and exercise tolerance key to overcoming fatigue. So Bioenergy Ribose provides the everyday, sustainable energy everyone needs to get through their busy week.
Bioenergy Ribose can be formulated in a variety of functional foods, beverages, sports nutrition, dietary supplements and other nutritional product applications. The Ribose Formulation Center works to confidentially help clients identify new opportunities to use and contain ribose, as well as with product development, claims and technical support.
