This amazing supplement is used by many to help improve recovery time after exercise. Now new research shows that it also helps alleviate the symptoms of both chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FMS).
In a recent study published in Arthritis Research Therapy, 41 participants with CFS or FMS took 15 grams of d-ribose daily (three doses at 5 g/dose). After 18 days, 66 percent reported significantly better energy, mental clarity, sleep, and overall well-being, as well as less pain.
Ribose dissolves easily in water, and adds a bit of sweetness. (I take mine in green tea.) But remember, it is still a sugar. So make an extra effort to stick to your low-glycemic diet if you begin taking this energy-boosting, fatigue-slaying supplement.[Ed.
