Jon (Australia) on 10/30/2014: D-Ribose for heart disease/congestive heart failure:
Numerous scientific and clinical studies have shown that D-ribose can help to restore energy and function to the heart.
D-Ribose is especially helpful to those with Congestive heart failure (CHF) and Ischemic cardiovascular disease - a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the heart muscle.
- Helps the heart and muscles maximize energy recovery.
- Shortens the time needed by heart and muscle tissue to replace energy that is lost through stress, exercise, and overwork.
- Increases the rate of ATP and energy recovery.
- Increases stamina and endurance, and reduces fatigue.
"Congestive heart failure is one of the most common reasons people 65 and older go into the hospital."
It can take years for heart failure to develop. So even if you don't yet have it but are at risk for it, adding D-ribose to your health regimen would be an excellent start to improve your health.
D-Ribose Dosage: 7 to 10 grams daily, split into 2 half doses, morning and evening. for most patients with heart disease or peripheral vascular disease, for patients recovering from heart surgery or heart attack, and for athletes who work out frequently in high-intensity activities.
