    has anyone tried d-ribose? just read about a doctor who was able to resume her practice after taking 10 grams of this nutrient for a few weeks, it is expansive and I hate to spend more money on one person's say so , so thought I would put it by you and see if anyone has any info.much appreciated, Micheline

    I've been using it for about a month and while I don't think it's responsible for my recovery it does give a an extra boost of energy. I only take 500mg a day, any more than that and I get too stimulated and jittery. I get it from Vitacost for $15 for 100grams...

    good luck.

    I was trying d-ribose, co-q-10, magnesium, vitamin C, and something else that I can't remember, and to be honest, I couldn't tell any difference... I also tried a few jugs of noni juice but that didn't help either...

    I have been on d ribose for about 6 months. It has helped a great deal with my heart palpitations. Honestly, I haven't noticed any more energy though. It is very useful for diastolic dysfunction which I have. Jess

    and am also taking Selenium supp (very cheap). Combining the two is definately helping me with the energy problem. I take one scoop a day in the morning and then my selenium tablet about half an hour later.

    I am from the UK and the D-ribose I get is £19.95 for 100 grams.

    I take a magnesium supp (350) and garlic capsule (high strength) at night.

    Hopefully I have found what works for me.
