    New Study finds D-Ribose Successful in Treating
    Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    A new study published by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that D-Ribose significantly improves the clinical symptoms to those suffering from Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

    These conditions have been associated with impaired cellular energy metabolism, of which this double blind placebo, D-Ribose has shown to increase cellular energy synthesis in heart and skeletal muscle resulting in significant improvement.

    The study had five categories that were measured on a visual analog scale (VAS) which included energy, sleep, mental clarity, pain intensity, and well-being, as well an improvement in patients global assessment.

    Approximately 66% of patients experienced significant improvement while on D-ribose, with an average increase in energy on the VAS of 45% and an average improvement in overall well-being of 30%.
