Ribose, D-Ribose

D-ribose is a type of carbohydrate that works in the production of energy, DNA, and RNA. ATP, the energy molecule used by all the cells of the body is derived from ribose.

  • Origin: Nonessential, Synthetic

Cardiovascular Health D-Ribose and Cardiovascular Health

The cardiovascular system is responsible for blood circulation, which has the function of transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body. It consists of the heart and blood vessels. Cardiovascular diseases are caused by changes in the blood lipid profile, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, genetic predisposition, overweight, stress, and others. The compounds that help cardiovascular health are those that normalize risk factors, such as cholesterol.
  • Heart Protection

    The heart is one of the most strong muscles in the body, as it works nonstop and very steady. But it can also fail, brought down by a poor diet and lack of exercise, smoking, infection, unlucky genes, etc. It's essential to your health to take care of your heart health.
