Your Experience With D-Ribose

    Reporting in on d-Ribose and sleep.
    I didn't take any d-Ribose yesterday (I meant to take 5g but forgot) and I still woke too early this morning! Well, I woke an hour before sunrise, so I think that's too early. I'm feeling tired in the daytime as a result and I haven't felt sleepy before bedtime for months and months so I guess the ribose could be contributing to some effect thats throwing cortisol or sleep cycle off a bit.

    Wheres the Sleep rx Webinar already? Looking forward to it! lol :D

    I was reading the label of my marvelous tub of D-ribose this morning, when I got a surprise. One scoop is 2 grams! Not 5gm. So I've been having all these wonderful effects on only 2 grams, 3x per day? I don't know what to do now. Experiment or stay with what works. Hmm, nice dilemma. :)

    Glad I have my large, 1 lb tub coming in the mail. Just what the doctor ordered for this gal. And for her man, too. DH hasn't had any of the leg pain or angina he occasionally gets, and I plan to keep it that way. Yes, he has seen a doctor about it, and it's not bad enough yet to treat. I guess modern medicine is just a waiting game. If you build it, they will come.

    I woke up with a big zit this morning. I never have zits, not in the last 30 years. The only dif is this is the 2nd week of ribose and I added ubiquinol this week.

    Yes, all D-rhibose is not created equal! I have 2 bottles, same brand (Now) but different formulations. One has 3.4g per tsp, one has 5g.

    I took 10g in some water with dinner last night, and I slept so well. Not sure if it's just from the d-rhibose, or something else. But whatever it was - it felt great!
  5. Perhaps it's not a bad thing, but some sort of detox zit of joy?

    :) I was thinking more on the line it is having a positive effect on hormone production?

    As far as I understand it not really either one. It just makes sure the mitochondria have fuel to run as an engine so you are not running on empty or inferior fuel. It's not a stimulant or a relaxant in other words. It just makes things work better. (optimal)

    So far I like d-ribose a lot. I think even with some confounding variables that I was having to contend with and I think I am able to stop them, I notice a benefit with d-ribose. It seems to keep me awake but not wired.

    I had a crappy sleep yesterday but it was not for d-ribose.

    I understood that it is for people who need a boost of energy. I am one of those and it really makes a difference for me. Maybe you don't need to take it.

    I think :) I understand it's about supporting the efficiency of the PPP and may be needed at least short term why we make the shift there? Longer term depending on circumstances.

    It may be needed especially for those who've been solidly burning the PC pathway too hard too long - like fibromyalgia sufferers for example?

    As far as I can tell, lepin-melanocortin and PPP both supported will provide a certain level of "terrain" protection against environmental stressors.

    My information is based on my experience and my best attempt (so far) at understanding it. Warning.Take it FWIW! ;)

    last time I asked this someone pointed me at the fat women webinar and another one about mitochondria..
    since I don't get access to those, I just bought some on the say so of the forum angels.. I got it today, and it is delicious! I am totally using it to sweeten my home made chocolate with then I won't have to use any other sweetener, and I will have to eat some chocolate every day hee hee.

    I've noticed that if I don't get a great sleep and have that feeling like I need a coffee (and I don't drink coffee anymore), when I take the d-rhibose, that feeling goes away. So I definitely feel it replenishing energy, in a much more long lasting way than short term energy boosters like caffeine or sugar.

    I can't take d-ribose any later than 5 pm. If I do, I wake up around 4 am and can't get back to sleep. This doesn't happen as long as I take the evening dose early.

    I've discovered I pretty much can take d-ribose any time (doesn't impact sleep for me). I've also been following cues and increasing my dose. I've also discovered 2 scoops in a cup of green tea mid day - can help me move toward 2 meals/day vs needing 3. I've also discovered that 2 scoops help me recover quicker and raise my body temp faster after CTing (especially when I haven't been regular about CTing - I really need to get back to that.)
