When two-time Olympic gold medalist Susan Francia visited San Diego Living, she brought the fitness essentials: two Olympic gold medals, recommendations for a morning fitness routine and Bioenergy Ribose. After flexing her rower’s biceps, she discussed some of the finer points of being a world-class athlete, including how she eats a whopping 4,000 calories each day and how ribose has a positive impact on her energy and muscle soreness. Encouraging viewers to cook their own meals – “It’s good to eat stuff that’s less processed”– Francia added that she takes ribose both in the morning and at night to maximize its benefits for her endurance and recovery. She then led the show’s host on a brief morning workout that combined jump squats, lunges and pushups. Francia also reminded viewers about the importance of staying hydrated.

If you’re tired, reaching for Bioenergy Ribose is a safe and effective way to boost your energy levels. Holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos cautioned Tampa Daytime viewers that some energy drinks are loaded with caffeine and sugar. “They might spike your energy levels temporarily, but then you crash later,” she said. D-ribose, which is used by several Olympic and world-class athletes, “helps to improve energy levels, endurance [and] performance” for anyone trying to exercise or work through a busy day. Torkos added, “It helps to reduce … muscle soreness, fatigue and give you that sustained energy.” Ribose is made by every cell in the body, but it can be used up quickly when your body needs energy. Because significant ribose concentrations are not found in any foods, Torkos suggested that viewers look for Bioenergy Ribose in supplement form.

When board-certified nutritionist and nationally known fitness expert Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., CNS, was asked to write an article advising readers how to get more energy, he made sure to include Bioenergy Ribose. In his article “Simple Steps to Power Up Your Energy Reserves”, Bowden explains that, “Ribose is not like rollover minutes. You can’t store it up. If you’re doing something strenuous that requires a lot of exertion, you’ll need a lot of it, maybe more than your body can churn out right away.”

Bowden, the best-selling author of 14 books on health, healing, food and longevity, added that, “Bioenergy Ribose is an ideal supplement to take. I play tennis 8-9 times a week, without a day to relax and re-boot. I need to keep my ribose storehouse constantly replenished, so it is an important part of my supplement program.”

Bowden’s helpful tips for getting all-day energy also included limiting processed carbs, which he calls energy drainers, and replacing those foods with more nutritious alternatives such as string cheese with an apple before a workout, and a whey protein shake for post-workout recovery.

He concluded: “When you sleep well, you make smarter nutritional decisions. If you also add D-Ribose into the mix, your tired muscles will recover faster so you can exercise even more. More exercise means sleeping better at night and having more energy throughout the next day. It’s that simple.”


Ribose helps neurosurgeon Joseph Maroon finish his fifth Ironman World Championship Triathlon

Congratulations to neurosurgeon, nutrition and fitness expert Joseph Maroon, MD on completing his fifth Hawaiian Ironman World Championship Triathlon. Regarded as one of, if not the most, grueling athletic competitions in the world, it punishes competitors with a 2.4-mile open water swim, a 112-mile bike ride through the Hawaiian lava fields, and a full 26.2-mile marathon. Dr. Maroon’s time was 16:03:48.

As an experienced triathlete as well as team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers among many other professional achievements, Maroon knows how to prepare for an event of this magnitude. Before departing for Hawaii, he noted in his blog, “As usual I’ve included several turkey sandwiches and my specially formulated drink bottles. I plan to include D-ribose resveratrol … to help me get through the race.”

After the race Maroon commented, “I used (ribose) in my water bottles for the run and bike, and truly believe it made a difference in my endurance. My slow time in the marathon was due to a bad knee not my conditioning.”


Jacob Teitelbaum, MD launches Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Practitioners Network

September 16th, 2013

On September 8, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, best-selling author of the new book, The Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Solution, launched the Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Practitioners Network (FFPN). FFPN is made up of health care practitioners from different backgrounds who want to treat chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FMS) using Teitelbaum’s research-backed “S.H.I.N.E.” treatment protocol. Teitelbaum has conducted extensive research on ribose’s effectiveness on severe forms of fatigue.

Practitioners join the FFPN by signing up for an eight-module online course created by Teitelbaum that provides specialized training on diagnosing and treating CFS/FMS. Upon course completion, practitioners are added to the FFPN practitioner referral database (a web-based global service used by prospective CFS/FMS patients to find trained practitioners) and begin receiving special FFPN member benefits that help them grow their practice.

Health practitioners of any discipline can join the FFPN. Those who may find membership especially beneficial include:

• MD, DO, ND, NP and PA

• Those who do chiropractic, massage, physical therapy or other forms of manipulative/physical therapies

• Practitioners of NAET, energy healing, or LAc

• Nutritionists

• Or simply any health practitioner or health coach looking to help those with CFS, fatigue and fibromyalgia

The web-based course includes training in:

• Sleep optimization

• Thyroid, adrenal and reproductive hormone support

• Candida management

• Optimizing nutritional support

• Special dramatically effective energy nutrients, including ribose

• Pain management

After completing and passing the online course exam, FFPN members will be experts in diagnosing and treating CFS and fibromyalgia, and have the tools needed to begin helping people immediately. Their names and practice will be added to the FFPN international practitioner referral list, one of the most active CFS/FMS referral lists in the world. They will also be eligible to participate in future workshops for advanced training in CFS/FMS and other topics such as effective pain treatment, how to improve function in people with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and how to give patients an “Executive Tune Up” (in which, unlike a traditional yearly checkup, the goal is to help the patient actually feel better). These programs will also be aggressively promoted to the public, further increasing patient referrals.
