    It's Now Sports brand. 100% pure - but my other bottle is also Now brand (although doesn't say "sports") and has 3.4g of d-rhibose. This one has 5g.

    Last night after taking 10 g d-ribose @ 2 pm and again 10g @3:3pm and then 5g @7:30 (Btw I HATE eating so freaking late but I'm staying with my parents for next few/several months...so I don't know what to do about this, since it is polite to eat with family and that is when they eat. They are being kind by helping me out...so I don't know what to do ) (Also when I eat late I now go to bed later too, to allow at least/best as possible 4 hrs between food and bed).

    Anyways, update:

    Went to bed @ 11:30pm. Fell asleep the same. Woke up at 'whatever' time and didn't look at clock to see what time. Fell back asleep pretty quickly. *This is the same pattern for last few nights so this seems independent of d-ribose.

    Possible difference for d-ribose. I naturally started to wake a bit before 7 sometime but don't know what time for sure. Lazed in bed until 7:18AM.

    I cannot report on my feelings today since I have some confounding variables from another experiment I stupidly decided to try. UGH! My brain feels frizzed and I feel drugged. But weird, I clear and can type....but I feel like I can't walk properly (or straight). I feel like my speech is slurry too....*Note this is not d-ribose effects this is from another failed and now ABANDONED experiment!!

    *smashheadondeskyoustupidretardwhatmadeyouthinktoevenTRY* I also almost feel like a dry heaving.

    Zorica, What was it?

    hehe I feel embarrassed to share. It's pretty shameful and I knew not to do it but I was testing my immune system (or so I hypothesize about immune system relationship)...

    I am not in a mood for possible chastising (not saying you ashryn would, in particular) lololol :eek:

    Well, at least now you have no doubt what the effect is ;)

    I will say the one food item that actually caused the drunkeness though was chicken wings from a grocery store. lol The rest I feel embarrassed about. And maybe it was just the chicken wings that gave me the weird drunken, neurlogical sx. Btw, they tasted very gross too. :sigh:

    At least I bought some bacon b/c I have been feeling low on bacon intake lately. That is probably what I am needing atm, and to ignore that and instead eat some crappy chicken wings...well that is just stupid. Soooo BACON!

    I think I'm craving extra salt lately...hope my adrenals are OK. (Should be and I don't see why I'd have any problems here).

    Yup, Lyndra. Haha. Some experiments are good and some are bad. Haha. :rolleyes:

    Store-bought chicken wings are generally loaded with MSG. I used to buy rotisserie chicken from the grocery store but it always made me feel bad. Reading the label was eye-opening.

    Wow. It must be the MSG then. I kind of assumed I would be 'immune' from something like that. Guess not. Too bad they tasted gross too. Will not make that mistake 2x.

    I drank more green tea and took extra Mg maybe that helps. My brain feels better now, phew. I just feel a bit tired (no d-ribose this PM). My hands are nice and warm right now though which I like. I feel normal temperature and not excessively sweating in some areas and cold in other areas.

    I'm getting a bit bummed as to my TOTM for Feb. I don't think it's going to arrive... It is no doubt that I would most likely benefit from some kind of hormone therapy but I do not feel comfortable experimenting with online varieties w/o some guidance from a 'good' dr. I know they are available, but ya it's tricky. Maybe after more time with personal recording and more knowledge of my body (and general health) then I can try to experiment on my own. But I'm not ready for that yet. Also I need to wait until I make more $$$ anyways.

    p.s. I will be starting a new job in child care soon so I am happy for a job finally. It is not high paying but it's at least a foot in the door. (And I don't mind this field at all). [Will force the kids outside LOL] [Also will have to brace myself for seeing the shitty food that they are provided. I will have to keep an invisible meltdown to myself lol. ]

    p.s. Re: the MSG. Yes, my tongue felt like it had some acid on it during/after eating them. My mouth tasted of chemical. So indeed, it was MSG (note: MSG is natural in tomatoes, but of course this is the chemical variety).

    Miller, the dog has been extremely mellow today - he had D-ribose w/both breakfast and dinner. as well as a couple of scoops in his water...

    Some people are more sensitive to MSG than others. My brother-in-law loves the stuff. I think you can become more sensitized the longer you do without it; that is certainly true for me and gluten. I used to eat wheat 3 meals a day plus snacks but after being off for a couple of years, only a small exposure made me sick. I hope you feel better soon.

    Interesting shijin - I haven't noticed anything different in my guys. But I only gave them 1 tsp. each! :)

    Thanks. I do feel much better than this afternoon. At least I don't feel so drugged. I do feel a little extra 'depressed' and a bit tired. That's all. I took extra Mg (malate, chloride and even sulfite w/ some sea salt and tea). I was recommended to eat extra amounts of CO oil and to avoid any food w/ calcium in it. So no sardines for me for tomorrow. Tomorrow I will eat maybe only coconut oil or something. I feel like I need a break from food for one day...I guess like a day of fasting or something. Too heavy for my system atm. Does collard greens have calcium b/c I bought some today and was hoping to eat it tomorrow b/c I have a craving for 'greens'. (Kale too expensive but collards much better value).

    My typing seems unaffected....but I find it hard to talk still. Weird.

    Also got some ice (snow from back yard) on carotid artery too.

    That's what I use. Makes me warm and gives me energy. 5 gm in 1.5 tsp.

    That helps me with any kind of tension/headache.
    I got some gluten exposure by mistake a few weeks ago and ice on my neck helped speed the recovery!

    Anybody using ATP as a supplement? My husband bought it so I have two bottles sitting at home for a month already - one from Douglas Laboratories and one from Swanson.

    Not sure if to take it with the d-ribose, I am taking 5mg x3 a day or better instead? Any feedback appreciated.
