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.”

Saturday Evening Post

Saturday Evening Post Medical Editor Wendy Braun recently interviewed popular author and board-certified nutritionist Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS, to get his recommendations for powering through your days. The article, Six Energizers from Dr. Jonny Bowden, lists Bowden’s tried-and-true tips for having enough energy to enjoy all of your activities.

Bowden (aka The Rogue Nutritionist) is a nationally known expert on weight loss, nutrition and health. His simple, straightforward approach to wellness makes him a sought-after guest on TV and radio. So we were thrilled when, after narrowing his energy tips down to just six, ribose made the cut.

“I play tennis eight to nine times a week, without a day to relax and re-boot,” he says in the article. “I take Bioenergy Ribose to replenish my ribose storehouse.”

Bowden’s other tips involve sleep, avoiding a carbohydrate overload in your diet, choosing energy bars that contain a sufficient amount of protein, snacking on the right foods before and after a workout, and sipping the certain beverages throughout the day.

Achieving third-party recognition from a publication as important as the Saturday Evening Post is quite an honor. The Saturday Evening Post has been in publication for nearly 300 years, and is the oldest magazine in the United States. Its editorial content is reinforced with an advisory board of renowned experts in their fields.

The Jonny Bowden interview by Wendy Braun first appeared on the magazine’s website. A longer article, including more information about ribose, will appear in the print version to be published this month.

Cristina Ferrare and Mark Steines, hosts of Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show, welcomed guest Jonny Bowden to describe the benefits of supplementing their diets with Bioenergy Ribose. The Rogue Nutritionist explains that ribose is the foundation of ATP, the energy producing molecule. Every muscle in our body benefits from increased stores of ATP, especially the heart which never gets a vacation. He recommends Bioenergy Ribose to his athletes as supplemental ribose may also help counter muscle stiffness and pain.

Rogue Nutritionist says Bioenergy Ribose helps people stick with fitness programs

Too often, we allow things to get in the way of sticking to our fitness resolutions. But don’t give up! There’s still hope even for those who haven’t set foot in the gym in weeks and have already fallen back into old, unhealthy habits. Board Certified Nutritionist and author Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS – known by millions as the Rogue Nutritionist – says starting an exercise program is easy. Sticking with it is the challenge!

He has identified the top four reasons that people abandon their fitness strategies, and reveals his best advice for overcoming them.

1. Your warm bed is more enticing than working up a sweat. “Get an accountability partner,” advises Bowden. “One big reason that people who use personal trainers get better results is that they are committed to showing up for the work outs. So make a verbal commitment to another person to be at the gym. Studies show that people are more likely to follow through on a pledge when they actually make the statement out loud and have something at stake.”
2. You’re too stiff and sore from the last work out. “While some people like that sore feeling because they think it means they accomplished something, most of us could do without the pain. Add ribose (aka D-Ribose) to your exercise program if you don’t want to be burdened by overwhelming muscle soreness and stiffness. Ribose is a natural sugar that our bodies normally make and use in producing energy molecules (ATP), but we can’t save them up. It’s not like rollover minutes. There’s no ribose savings account. You can’t store them for your next work out. That’s why you need supplemental ribose which can be found in some sports nutrition bars, energy drinks and nutritional supplements. Just make sure you are getting two to five grams at a time.”
3. You’re too tired to work out. “Studies show that if you’re dehydrated by as little as two percent, it can lower your performance. Thirst is a lousy indicator of your need for water. By the time you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Nearly every metabolic process in our body requires water. Picture two bodies of water: One is a cool clear mountain stream that is constantly replenished; the other is a stagnant pond that is full of algae. Which one do you want to represent your body? Be proactive and constantly top off your water supply.”
4. You don’t have the will power to stick with a fitness routine. “If you haven’t developed a habit of fitness, you are far better off exercising early in the day. Experts now know that self-control, or will power, is a like a muscle that can fatigue. Study after study has demonstrated that if you use it a lot during the day, you may run out by the time the evening comes. That’s why people frequently overeat when stressed. If you don’t have the fitness habit, going to the gym requires will power and a certain amount of discipline. If you wait until the end of the day, your “will power muscle” has been fatigued. Go early in the morning until it becomes habit. Plus there’s a side benefit: Now you’ve raised your endorphins, and those positive feelings will spill over into other things throughout your days.”

Bowden believes that anyone can use these suggestions to overcome the typical obstacles keeping them from getting fitter and healthier. “You don’t need expensive equipment or iron-fisted willpower. You just need to be prepared to move beyond the things that have tripped you up in the past.”
