Our Story

Bioenergy Life Science, Inc. (BLS) is based in a northern suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Creating innovative ingredients for healthier living is the mission of BLS. We are developing new all-natural, pure and scientifically-based ingredients that help people feel better, perform better and look better. Our core technology lies in the development of the multi-functional molecule D-Ribose, making us best known for the only patented and FDA GRAS-certified Ribose on the market, Bioenergy Ribose®. We use that core technology and experience to develop other clinically-proven ingredients that support digestive health, weight management, anti-aging, heart health and many other health-enhancing benefits. We sell in bulk to businesses who manufacture or formulate functional foods and beverages, dietary supplements and sports nutrition products.
