I am glad I like sugar...this is a new study done by Dr. Jacob Teitalbum Our recently completed study showed that Corvalen (D-Ribose by Valen Labs) is an outstanding new nutrient ( a special sugar-even OK for those who need to avoid sugar!) for those of you who want a powerful energy boost. In addition to its role in making and repairing DNA and RNA, those of you familiar with biochemistry remember Ribose as the key building block for making energy. In fact, the main energy molecules (like “Energy dollars”) in your body (ATP, FADH, etc.) are made of ribose plus B vitamins/phosphate. That makes these energy molecules similar to the paper that money is printed on- kind of like being able to print your own energy currency! Corvalen also has many other uses, including treating heart muscle weakness (Congestive Heart Failure). We were so impressed with this product that our research center recently completed a research study reported on in the national news services using it in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Two thirds of these desperately ill patients improved, with an average increase in quality of life of ~25%- outstanding for a single nutrient! Who wouldn’t want a 25% improvement in their quality of life? I do. In the study, patients started with a (5000 mg) scoop of Corvalen/ribose 3 times a day for 3 weeks, then decreased to a scoop twice a day, but lowered the dose if they got too hyper from being too energized. The use of Ribose (Corvalen) is a major step forward in treating fatigue with the average CFS/FMS patient in the study having a 43% improvement in energy. This is very dramatic for a single treatment/nutrient! In our study, pain, sleep, and “brain fog’ also improved. For more information, see [web site address removed as per rules]. We are also getting ready to start a “Gold –standard” placebo controlled study on Ribose/Corvalen in CFS/FMS to follow up our initial pilot study [web site address and email removed as per rules].
