SupplySide West 2013 may be history, but it sparked conversations about the future uses of ribose that will continue for a long time to come. Among the hottest topics of conversations was the results of a new study showing that combining d-ribose with caffeine significantly reduced caffeine usage level and provided sustained energy for much better performance. Bioenergy Ribose was used in this study.

Bioenergy Life Science President Tom VonderBrink was thrilled with the industry’s reaction. “We had great reception and positive comments on the caffeine study. It was exciting to have something so timely and significant to discuss with attendees.” Previous studies have shown that combining ribose with reasonable dosages of caffeine may be a logical synergy.

Elite Team Ribose athletes: “before and after” ribose

Susan After

Olympian Susan Francia had fun getting to know attendees who stopped by our booth. She’d hold up her smaller gold medal from the Beijing Olympics and say with a grin, “Before ribose” … then hold up the significantly larger gold medal she earned in London and say, “After ribose!”

Then she’d get down to business, explaining how Bioenergy Ribose helps her with muscle and energy recovery, getting her through a back injury and ready for the Olympics. Ribose gave her the energy she needed to get through one workout, and then be recovered and full of energy for the next workout. “I had a great time meeting people and talking about Bioenergy Ribose,” she says of SupplySide West. “I thought the convention was a hit and we made a lot of good contacts.”

Added Olympian Billy Demong, “I was really impressed with SupplySide West! There was a lot of energy, and a lot of good nutritional products were represented. It was exciting being in the Bioenergy Ribose booth. So many people came by to talk about ways to include Bioenergy Ribose into their products because they know about its many great benefits.”
