So ribose (D-Ribose)


It is a natural carbohydrate which takes part in the course of metabolic processes, and has a large number of properties and physiological functions affecting the synthesis and metabolism of fibers. ribose included in the nucleic acids and It acts as a source of energy. That is why its use is especially important in intensive loads, as well as an active lifestyle, lack of sleep, fatigue.

Ribose is found in every cell of the body and represents the form of simple sugars, the carbohydrate forming the backbone of DNA and RNA, the genetic material that controls the growth and reproduction of cells, thereby controlling, all vital processes. Also involved in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and is one of its structural components.

Usually the body is able to produce and process all the amount of ATP needed, especially when there are large reserves of oxygen. But under certain conditions, in particular with ischemia (insufficient blood flow to the tissues) and during high-intensity occupations, ATP is not reproduced quickly enough, and energy producing complex substances called adenine nucleotides can escape from the cells. And this can adversely affect muscular functions, since cells need adenine nucleotides to produce a sufficient amount of ATP.

Studies conducted in this area show that taking ribose before, during or after intensive physical activity provides muscle energy and improves endurance.

Furthermore, ribose promotes early restoration of damaged muscle tissue, improves metabolism at the cellular level. Regularly eating ribose can improve endurance, to cope with chronic fatigue (!)Get rid of the pain in muscles after workouts.

By the way, the unique properties of the substance described in the American physician, author of numerous scientific papers and books, an expert on chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia with 30-year veteran Jacob Teitelbaum in his book "a statute for ever." It was from there I learned of ribose.

Another important point: ribose is often used as a preventive agent for ischemic heart disease, the treatment / prevention of cardiovascular disease, is an excellent antioxidantFighting free radicals.

Regarding use as sports supplements, then, as mentioned above, the assimilability Ribose accelerates the body creatine and improves performance and endurance, speedy and effective recovery of the organism.

Often can be found D-Ribose in the form of a powder or capsules, at least - energy bars. Take it should be, depending on the dosage, as specified by the manufacturer. The minimum recommended amount - 2,2 grams per day, some manufacturers recommend to increase this number to 4 grams to improve the results.

Why do I accept D-Ribose? First of all, with the aim of improving the metabolism at the cellular level. Also, while working out (albeit at home, 4-5 workout once a week), I want to "help" the body to cope with stress, preventing development of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Mannose (D-Mannose)

D-mannoseIt has nothing to do with sports supplements. This is a simple sugar (the closest "relative" of glucose), natural alternative to antibiotics to treat infections of the urinary tract.

In order not to be unfounded (and that you did not say, well, how do I know that better than cure;), immediately I would note that this information is based on studies MD Jonathan B. Wright** (Chapter Tahoma Clinic in Renton, Washington).

** He has devoted his research to this drug and described the case when the D-mannose rescued the child from a kidney transplant (they could not cope with chronic infections). The girl visited a few dozen doctors, tried many medications, but treatment results did not give. After the start of D-mannose within 48 hours (!) The infection has disappeared. Treatment, of course, continued and was brought to an end. Over the next ten years, the patient no longer had a urinary tract infection and, most importantly, save your kidneys.

What is it like to D-Mannoseand what caused its properties?

D-mannose is a polysaccharide, which is produced by the body and stored in the epithelial cells lining the urinary tract.

Mannose also found in some fruits and berries (peaches, apples, oranges, cranberries, blueberries).

When a patient suffering from urinary tract infection, takes mannose, it goes directly into the blood. As blood saturated mannose, passes through the kidneys, a considerable part of the substance falls into the urine, which in turn passes from the kidneys through the ureters into the bladder tissue actually covers mannose and freely washes bacteria E. coliNow they can not adhere to the cells.

Although up to 90% urinary tract infectious diseases provoked by bacteria E. coli (urethritis, cystitis, pyelonephritis), the remaining 10% are attributed to bacteria such as Chlamydia, Mycoplasma, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, etc. Unlike E. coli, these microorganisms are sexually transmitted and rarely cause more serious infectious diseases of the bladder and kidneys. Infections caused by bacteria Chlamydia, Mycoplasma and N. gonorrhoeae, are not treated with D-mannose and, in most cases, there is a need for antibiotic treatment. In addition, some other infectious diseases of the urinary tract are caused by other bacteria, such as Proteus or Staphylococcus. And yet, all these infections, caused not by E. coli bacteria, together constitute not more than 10% of all infectious diseases of the urinary tract.

Because mannose can get rid of the bacteria that cause urinary tract infections, without killing them, people who take mannose, do not suffer from the unwanted side effects such as antibiotics: no side effects on the gastrointestinal tract, do not develop a fungal infection (Candida) no immunity effect. In fact, D-mannose has no side effects.

And today, when what only medicines and treatments / innovation is not invented, urinary tract infections are common diseases that are accompanied by pain and affects up to 50% of women and girls (and a much smaller number of men) throughout life. Some are more susceptible than others. And the most embarrassing moment, agree: once transferring an infectious disease of the urinary tract, most likely from time to time you will suffer from relapses

So I summarize:

  • Mannose is not a drug. It is a natural simple sugar, which is metabolized in the body in small amounts, while the remaining part is rapidly excreted in the urine.
  • In the urinary tract mannose prevents stagnation of particles and promotes their washout in the flow of urine. Clinical studies have shown that the regular intake of D-Mannose helps maintain urinary tract health, is the best prevention of infectious diseases.
  • Treats 90% urinary tract infectious diseases caused by microorganisms E. coli, it does not kill useful bacteria.
  • It has no side effects, so it is suitable for children and the elderly.
  • Because the body uses a small amount of mannose, the product does not interfere with healthy regulation of blood sugar levels. The drug tested, and is suitable for diabetics.

Accept D-Mannose need for 3 1-3 capsule twice a day (Depending on the form of the disease, for the prevention 1 enough times) or as directed on the package (depending on the dosage).

Why I bought the drug and now in my medicine cabinet (especially when traveling), he is always there? Because I'm the same person, just like you :), and nothing human is alien to me. The facts listed above have already answered this question. Particularly relevant active drug for those who are highly selective and limited reception medicaments (e.g. in pregnancy and lactation!), Diabetics and others.

Hopefully, this information will be useful for you :) Do not get sick!
