Ribose is a simple sugar that is extremely important in many processes in the body. Ribose is found in all living cells. It is the backbone of genetic material, and it is the starting point for production of ATP. Ribose effectively increases ATP and TAN (Total Adenine Nucleotide) recovery, while improving performance in heart and muscle cells. Ribose also fortifies muscle ATP but through a different pathway than creatine.

Ribose also bolsters muscle recovery after your train. Ribose promotes more efficient salvage pathway, thus allowing better ATP recycling and consequent increased muscular recovery after training. If the body does not use the salvage pathway, when ribose is insufficient, it must make ATP from scratch.
