The same is true of people with fibromyalgia or other neuromuscular disease affecting muscle metabolism. As in ischemic heart disease, this metabolic insufficiency drains the energy fuel tank leaving the muscle energy starved.
This chronic and persistent energy drain forces a series of cellular reactions ending in muscle pain, soreness, stiffness, and fatigue. Patients with fibromyalgia, for example, often are too fatigued to maintain normal interaction with their friends or family, and may have too much pain to stay active or even keep their jobs. In many cases, these patients must be treated with anti-depressants because of the psychological stress inflicted by their illness, and in virtually every case doctors treat patients with pain pills that don’t treat the underlying cause of the disease.
Supplying these affected tissues with Ribose stimulates the process of energy recovery and helps hearts and muscles refill their energy tanks. Supplemental Ribose allows cells to bypass the slow process of natural Ribose synthesis and accelerates ATP recovery. It doesn’t matter whether we are talking about hearts or muscles, if we are healthy or sick, or if we are old or young. Cells need energy, and Ribose is fundamentally required to restore this lost energy and put the energy demand and supply ratio back in balance.
Two recent clinical studies have shown that Ribose supplementation can help patients overcome their shortness of breath and tolerate more exercise. Patients are able to breathe more efficiently and can utilize oxygen more effectively. The net result is that patients can do more exercise before running out of breath, and this directly impacts quality of life.
How do I know I need Ribose?
At some point in his or her life, everyone needs Ribose. We all face situations where Ribose supplementation could help us overcome the pain and stiffness of muscle overexertion, the fatigue of chronic disease, the weakness after strenuous exercise, or the inability to do the things we want to do. We all want to be as active and healthy as we can, and we need a full supply of energy in all our cells and tissues to reach that goal.
Although Ribose is made naturally in all our cells and tissues, it is a slow process. And this delay limits the speed with which our bodies can restore lost energy. Ribose is the limiting factor in ATP synthesis, and our bodies have an absolute and fundamental need for ATP to fuel the multitude of biochemical reactions that keep us alive and vital.
I created a new product called Energy Restore Support. Most of the energy products on the market contain caffeine, but this one doesn’t. As we age, we lose certain nutrients. So by putting them back in, we are able to re-energize our cells and get back to doing those things we are capable of doing.
Patients with diseases that impact muscle metabolism should also seriously consider Energy Restore Support supplementation because diseases such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, congestive heart failure or those who have suffered a heart attack, for example, drain energy from muscles, and this energy drains shows itself in the form of fatigue, muscle pain, soreness, and stiffness. Ribose especially helps offset the all these symptoms.
Most of us don’t know we have a problem with the energy in our hearts and muscles until we get sore legs, worn out, or chronically fatigued. But even after these symptoms hit us, it isn’t too late. Ribose supplementation can quickly help replace energy in stressed hearts and muscles, and help maintain the normal energy balance in our tissue.
Virtually any amount of Ribose you can give to stressed hearts and muscles will help. The amount of Ribose you should take is really dependent on what you want it to do.
Energy Restore Support contains the Ribose called Corvalen, the same nutrient we are born with and also used by today’s Olympic athletes. Also, I added Acetyl-l-carnitine, which can help increase energy production in the mitochondria, the "power plants" of all cells, and thereby boost physical and mental energy. Acetyl-L-carnitine is often used to help improve memory, and has been studied as a possible treatment for Alzheimer's disease, symptoms of depression, and may be useful in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. One thing I wanted to address besides physical energy, but we must have mental energy as well.
Other nutrients in the Energy Restore Support is Malic Acid and Magnesium as well as the enzyme Bromelain which are helpful for those with Fibromyalgia. Adding these to Ribose improves the way the muscles will contract and relax. I have clients with Fibromyalgia who are 80-100% pain free because the muscle cells are getting what they need to work properly. When the knotted up muscles relax, the pressure on the nerves is lessen and then you end up with less pain, all the while increasing one’s energy, mentally and physically.
I also added 100mg of DMG which also works directly with the ATP energy cycle. Many of you know by now that DMG improves physical and mental energy as well as offering brain health, cardiovascular health and immune health. I combined it with the herb Rhodiola. Rhodiola is still widely used in Russia as a tonic and remedy for fatigue, poor attention span, and decreased memory; it is also believed to make workers more productive. Rhodiola has been shown to shorten recovery time after prolonged workouts, to increase attention span, memory, and strength. Rhodiola increases the level of enzymes, RNA, and proteins important to muscle recovery after exhaustive exercise, which is vital for those with Fibromyalgia and even congestive heart failure.
When our energy improves, so must our memory and studies using Rhosdiola showed in proofreading tests demonstrated that Rhodiola enhances memorization and concentration ability over prolonged periods. It increases the bioelectrical activity of the brain which improves memory and brain energy.
Energy Restore Support containing the herb Rhodiola has also been shown to be effective for cardiac problems caused or aggravated by stress. Its action for these conditions is in its ability to decrease the amount of catecholamines and corticosteroids released by the adrenal glands during stress. The abnormal presence of these stress hormones will subsequently raise blood pressure, cholesterol, potassium levels and increase risk factors for heart disease. Rhodiola has been found to decrease harmful blood lipids and thus decrease the risk of heart disease. It also decreases the amount of cyclic-AMP (c-AMP) released into cardiac cells. Cyclic AMP is related to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body's primary energy molecule. C-AMP acts as a 'second messenger' or liaison between the outer and inner environments of the cell. It assists in the uptake of more intracellular calcium into the heart thus promoting a greater potential for heart muscle contraction. Rhodiola thus regulates the heart beat and counteracts heart arrhythmias. When you combine Rhodiola with Ribose you effectively improve heart function and is a must for those dealing with or recently diagnose with congestive heart failure.
I’ve also added CoQ10 in the Energy Restore Support as CoQ10 and Ribose work together for cellular energy in the heart muscle. The beauty of Energy Restore Support is it is safe to take with cardiovascular medications and pain medications. The average health person can take to keep things running like they should. I believe when formulating a product with multiple nutrients, they must work together, much the same way when I created Thyroid Complete.
Energy Restore Support combined with Acetyl L-Carnitine, Malic Acid, DMG, Rhodiola, Coenzyme Q10 and Bromelain, with Ribose is a formula that helps reduce fatigue and restore cellular function by promoting the production and recycling of ATP. It can also be used pre and post work out. It’s a great tasting powder drink mix supplement that can be added to your Super Health Whey protein from Nutritional Living.
One scoop twice daily for those with congestive heart failure and Fibromylagia. For those of us in general good health, one scoop every morning will keep your ticker ticking and keep the rest of muscles as well as your memory energized for the day.
