    Just wondered if anyone recently tried D Ribose and what it did or didn't do for you. Thanks

    up above. There are many posts about it. I remember an article about a woman who said she was cured after using it.

    I have used it and it has helped me but that was after my heart beating very fast for a long time. It helped me recover from the weakness. You have to take a lot of it.

    There is a thread here, somewhere, and it was recommended taking 15 grams of it which is A LOT and very expensive. Hope this helps.

    D-ribose, Co-Q-10, L-Carnitine, and magnesium, is called the awesome foursome by the leading heart doctor who's name I can't remember. He really pushes these four supplements.

    Dr. Teitlebaum says you have to take twice as much D-ribose for fibromyalgia and cfs... He was on the television yesterday talking about it. But he's not the heart specialist I mentioned above..but he does know about fibro & cfs....

    I just started taking D-ribose last week. It is expensive if you have to continue it...

    was beating fast for a long time. I also took CoQ10, acetyl-l-carnitine, and magnesium with it. It did help me but I ran out of everything. The doses are high but for me worked well.

    There is a thread that has a post about these supplements. I'll have to think about it to remember where that post is. I'll post it when I find it.

    Are you looking at the ribose for fatigue?

    I've posted his first post of his thread. This post has the recommended doses and supplements. There is a Dr. Kerr who has written a lot about this. If you go to this thread there is a lot of info for you to read.

    If you decide to try the ribose let me know how you do.

    Thank you for reminding me about it so I can get more of the supplements for this "cocktail." I also took selenium with it and that seemed to help.

    Good luck!

    Mitochondrial Support 03/01/06 08:47 AM

    Hey all,

    I've recently been reading up on the mitochondrial deficiencies as part of the puzzle to chronic fatigue. Has anyone tried the mitochondrial support regimen:

    Co-enzyme Q 10 300 - 360mg (the oil of the engine, this moves electrons from one molecule to another)
    L-carnitine 2,000 - 3,000mg (the oil of the engine, this moves ATP and ADP across mito membranes)
    D-ribose 15grams (the raw material to make new ATP)
    Magnesium 400 - 800mg (the spark plugs, this fires up many enzyme reactions)

    I know that many of you have tried CoQ10 with some success, but maybe that is only part of the solution.

    I used this and I found that my energy levels improved but the only trouble was it only lasted 3 weeks and then seemed to stop working. I decided that I had other issues that needed sorting out first i.e. viruses, yeast etc. I do plan on trying it again once I have finished my new regime and hope this time it will have more of a lasting benefit for me.

    I was taking 300mg CO-Q10. 2000 L Carnitine, then added
    D-Ribose. Within 30 minutes of taking the ribose I felt
    worse! Very tired. I kept trying every day and the same thing happened!
    I have given up on the ribose. It did not work for me.

    Hi, Suz!

    I'm on my third jar of it.

    I agree with Tantalion that I noticed more of an effect from it the first few weeks. The first week was spectacular and I was really excited about it.

    Now after 2 1/2 months I would say that it gives me a little bit more energy, which allows me to exercise a bit more. I figure that anything that helps me exercise will help me get better.

    Love,
    Forebearance
