Whereas some functional ingredients are only available in a limited number of foods and beverages – and are only beginning to earn the trust of major food companies – patented Bioenergy Ribose appears on the “approved supplier list” maintained by many major food companies. That’s in great part because it is manufactured to rigid standards. It is also FDA GRAS-affirmed.

Bioenergy Ribose is also versatile, lending itself to many different food and beverage applications. For example, it is Kosher- and Halal-certified, allergen-free and non-GMO. Benefits to enjoying products made with Bioenergy Ribose include:

• It helps maintain energy in your muscles during exercise or exertion. Whether you have a strenuous job, you spend your days chasing after a toddler, or you are training for athletic competition, Bioenergy Ribose helps to supply energy when you need it.

It improves the production of energy compounds when depleted. You may have more energy to accomplish tasks, even if you only have time for short breaks in an otherwise long work day.

• It drives energy maintenance and recovery. Have you ever sat down after strenuous activity, and felt as if you never wanted to get back up again? That’s your body telling you that it needs more time to re-charge its batteries. Bioenergy Ribose will help shorten that recovery time.

• It makes energy compounds and keeps them in muscle cells. When you need access to energy, your muscles are more likely to be ready.

• It has a negative glycemic index. Yes, this really is a mildly sweet, naturally occurring sugar that will not send you on that blood sugar rollercoaster ride!

Why continue to feel mid-morning sluggishness or suffer from afternoon energy slumps? Products made with Bioenergy Ribose help to fight fatigue and provide you with natural, sustained energy throughout the day.

Growing numbers of consumers report that fatigue and the drain of everyday life are general problems in their lives. They want more natural, more prolonged and more sustainable energy, rather than energy stimulants, which can cause an eventual crash. Bioenergy Ribose may be an ideal complement to caffeine. The advantage to energy drinks that contain both ingredients is that caffeine decreases fatigue, increases alertness and elevates mood while ribose helps make energy and higher sports performance

Bioenergy Ribose, which has a slightly sweet taste and no bitter aftertaste, is more than just another type of sugar. Unlike most sugars (fructose, sucrose and glucose) which only fuel energy turnover, Bioenergy Ribose drives energy maintenance and recovery by actually making energy compounds and keeping them in muscle cells. It also has a negative glycemic index and, unlike most sugars, does not generally raise blood sugar levels.

Functional food and beverage manufacturers are sitting up and taking notice. Because it is simple to incorporate, and blends easily with other ingredients and flavors, watch for Bioenergy Ribose to appear in a very wide variety of products including:

• Breakfast cereals and bars

• Snack and meal-replacement bars

• Baked goods (cookies, brownies and muffins)

• Fruit chews and roll-ups

• Dairy items (yogurt, pudding and milk shakes)

• Chocolates and confections

• Energy drinks and shots

• Protein shakes

• Rehydration drinks

• Flavored/fortified waters

• Powdered beverage mixes

• Teas and coffees

You’ll be able to spot products made with 250 mg. or more of Bioenergy Ribose per serving by the extra functional claims they make on their packaging, which are supported by extensive clinical testing. These include:

• Speeds energy recovery

• Increases energy reserves

• Rebuilds ATP when depleted in heart and muscle tissue

• Maintains healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue

• Regenerates energy

• Reduces onset of muscle cramping and soreness

Oh, and one more bonus to using Bioenergy Ribose? It reduces the need to use other types of sugars in food and beverage formulations.


Chicago TV news viewers learn about benefits of D-Ribose

Bioenergy WLS

ABC 7 News (WLS in Chicago) recently featured a segment on natural energy boosters. Anchors Linda Yu and Sylvia Perez welcomed holistic pharmacist Sherry Torkos, who described better ways to get energy and named a number of alternatives to sugary products including green tea as well as foods and supplements fortified with D-Ribose. Torkos explained that ribose works at the cellular level to provide sustained energy and aid muscle recovery. She commented that products made with D-Ribose are used by Olympic athletes because of their intense physical activity, but may also be used by the average person for their work outs as well as by people coping with daily fatigue who want to boost their energy reserves. She ran out of time before she could also mention that Bioenergy Ribose has a negative glycemic index and does not raise blood sugar levels like most sugars. It is Kosher certified, Halal, allergen free and non-GMO.
