The Bioenergy Life Science booth #3257 at IFT 2014 in New Orleans is bustling with activity! Thirsty attendees are quenching their thirst, and re-booting their energy levels, with four flavors of Titan Tea by Chill Brands, LLC, made with three grams of Bioenergy Ribose per serving.

Most are also succumbing to our array of tempting treats made with ribose including big hits: Good Cacao’s Energy (coconut) and Zipp Foods’ Peak Energy tablets.

Our Team Ribose athletes – Greg Bennett, Laura Bennett and Billy Demong, are doing an excellent job of explaining to visitors exactly how ribose has safely benefited their daily routines, giving them sustainable energy and helping with their muscle recovery.

They also report having a blast during the IFTSA Fun Run & Walk in Audubon Park, where they finished strong! Bioenergy Life Science is proud to have again sponsored this event, which raised a record-breaking $107,000 for Feeding Tomorrow undergraduate and graduate food science scholarships.

 

Olympian Susan Francia shares her best tips for sore muscles

Even athletes in peak condition can get sore muscles. And while a little muscle pain is normal, especially if you are just starting a new sport or fitness program, you don’t want that stiffness and soreness to interfere with your progress.

We asked Team Ribose member and five-time world champion rower Susan Francia, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, to share her best tips for coping with sore muscles. “I try to prevent sore muscles by stretching before and after workouts,” she says. Stretching helps to warm up muscles and increases your limberness which may help to prevent soft tissue injuries.

Francia also recommends doing focus work on the muscles you use most often during exercise. “For example, I work the small muscles used for rowing, and try to do extra core work,” she explains. If you are not currently working with a trainer, do some research to learn which muscles may need more attention because of your workout routine. Also, pay attention to proper form and proper-fitting equipment (such as shoes, bicycle, etc.) because both of those are factors that can lead to sore muscles as well as injuries.

Another proactive tip in Francia’s strategy is to take Bioenergy Ribose immediately after her hard workouts. “That way, my body can start recovering as soon as I’m done. And, I can feel better energized for the next workout.” Bioenergy Ribose has been shown to significantly improve endurance during strenuous exercise, shorten recovery time, reduce cramping and soreness, and reduce fatigue in people suffering from energy depletion.

What should you try once you do notice sore muscles? “I like to take soothing Epsom salt baths,” says Francia, “or get a deep-tissue massage.” Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) have been used for centuries to help to reduce muscle inflammation.

Meet Elite Athletes Billy Demong, and Greg and Laura Bennett

The buzz about energy products is getting stronger, and Bioenergy Ribose is sweetening the conversations. Just ask Olympian Billy Demong, or triathletes Greg and Laura Bennett, how Bioenergy Ribose safely helps them achieve sustained energy and reduce muscle soreness. They will be in our booth #3257 during the show.

Bioenergy Life Science is also a sponsor of the 2014 IFTSA Fun Run & Walk, benefitting Feeding Tomorrow undergraduate and graduate food science scholarships. All three endurance athletes will participate in this event, representing Team Ribose. The run starts at 6:15 a.m. on Monday June 23 in Audubon Park.

Already popular in many beverages and supplements, all-natural Bioenergy Ribose can improve the nutritional profile and benefit claims of your food and beverage applications. Be sure to taste our samples! This year, we’ll have Good Cacao’s Energy (pomegranate) and Cardio (toasted coconut) SuperFood chocolate bars, Zipp Foods’ Peak Energy tablets, Go Fast energy drinks, Titan Tea and Bazi All Natural Energy Shots.

Bioenergy Ribose, a 5-carbon monosaccharide, works by regulating the body’s natural energy synthesis. It helps muscles regenerate lost energy. Think of it as helping to level your body’s energy supply versus its demand for energy. Whether you’re training for a marathon or just trying to get through your busy day, using ribose will help keep your heart and muscles healthy, and you feeling more energized.

Bioenergy Ribose has more than 30 issued or pending patents, and its benefits are documented by more than 110 clinical studies. Its safety is evidenced by its GRAS status (including a “no questions letter” from the FDA). Bioenergy Ribose also meets or exceeds many quality standards that include Grade-A Level Certification from the BRC and kosher certification. It’s also non-GMO and gluten-free.

 

Team Ribose’s Billy Demong reflects on his Olympics experience

What’s it like to train for the Winter Olympics? To compete as part of Team USA? Team Ribose member Billy Demong traveled to Sochi, Russia to represent the U.S. in the Nordic Combined events. He recently told Bioenergy Ribose about his experience.

“Being at the Olympics is not only a life goal, but it is a rare time in an athlete’s life where you get to prioritize feeling good,” he said. “The training is over. The peak has been attained. It is really about doing the little things each and every day that allow you to be and feel your very best.”

The Nordic Combined Team, along with the U.S Alpine Ski Team and the U.S. Snowboard Team, stayed at a hotel near the ski jumps. “We were a little spoiled. We had chefs from the U.S. Committee cooking for us, and a gym filled with everything we could want for a work out.”

But surprisingly, Demong did not spend most of his time training. “I trained a minimal amount in order to stay in peak condition. While that was less than two hours per day, nearly half of the training I did in Sochi was at maximal intensity. I spent a great deal of time doing contrast baths (hot/cold), stretching and relaxing. I know that sounds crazy, but at that level you are really trying to allow the years of training to reach the highest pinnacle by backing off.”

Demong’s preparation also extended to his diet. “I made very sure to stick to my nutritional routine. I took my full dose of Bioenergy Ribose, Beta-Alanine and other supplements to ensure I would not miss anything on race day. I have found that D-Ribose reduces my training fatigue and has really helped me gain an even keel in day-to-day recovery. That was certainly true at the Olympics. I felt my very best, I raced well and had I jumped a bit farther I know I would have been in podium contention.”

He explained why this consistency is important. “That’s the tough part of combined events, one discipline can set you up or take you out for another. Especially being in an outdoor sport like Nordic Combined, I have become used to (as much as one can) the reality that wind, snow, rain or another extraneous factor can severely influence performance. That’s why I choose to focus on the variables I can control, whether it be training, nutrition, equipment or something else.

“I know that I can bring my A-game on any day with the help of tried-and-true mental and physical routines. From experience, I know that the difference between 1st and 30th is far closer than what results will ever show.”

For Demong the highlight of the Olympics, in lieu of a medal, was spending time with his family. “The experiences of chasing my son around Russia, and enjoying dinner out with my wife, parents and sister, were really special. Having previously won a gold medal, I can honestly say two things:

1. I would change nothing about how I prepared. I felt amazing on competition day, and I know that mentally and physically I was in the right place.

2. Jumping on the bed with my son, Liam, after a disappointing finish felt nearly as good as winning and reminded me of what is truly important.

Bioenergy Ribose is proud of how Billy Demong represented the U.S. during the 2014 Winter Olympics. We look forward to cheering him on during his next round of competitions.
