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
- Source Mushrooms, Meat, Cheese, Milk, Eggs.
- Type Carbohydrate
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.
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.
- Age Range Teenagers (13-19), Adults (20-59), Seniors (>60)
- Toxicity May be toxic in high doses
- Side effects Hypoglycemia, Increased levels of uric acid.
- Warnings Diabetes
Why be Careful
Its use by diabetics and by patients with hyperuricemia (excess of uric acid in the blood) must be monitored by a doctor, due to possible episodes of hypoglycemia and increased levels of uric acid.
