Product Details

Pure Encapsulations Ribose, 250 grams

A pentose sugar found in all living cells, ribose is important for maintaining healthy total adenine nucleotide pools and ultimately for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), promoting skeletal and cardiac muscle energy metabolism.

Ribose is the key compound used by the body to form the nucleotides AMP, ADP and ATP, which are depleted during strenuous physical activity or from lack of oxygen. Skeletal and cardiac muscle rely on these metabolites for energy, and two metabolic pathways preserve these pools. The first mechanism involves salvaging end products of AMP breakdown, or preventing them from leaving the cell. If they are salvaged, they may be recycled back to AMP and ultimately to ATP. The second mechanism for preserving nucleotide pools is de novo synthesis, or formation of new nucleotides from ribose.

Although the body has the ability to manufacture ribose from glucose, it is a slow process which requires glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G- 6-PDH), an enzyme typically in short supply. Supplemental ribose allows the body to bypass this step, rapidly supplying the compounds needed to boost salvage and enhance de novo synthesis. Ribose also offers powerful, complementary support to creatine by enhancing TAN pools, providing the necessary substrates which creatine can then convert to ATP.

Label Information


Suggested use

Pure Encapsulations recommends 1-2 scoops per day (2.2-4.4 grams), 30 minutes before or following an exercise session, or in divided doses before and after exercise. On days with no exercise scheduled, take in the evening before bedtime.


If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. In a small number of instances, diarrhea, gastrointestinal discomfort, nausea, and headache have been reported with ribose supplementation. Ribose may have a hypoglycemic effect, which appears to be transient and clinically non-significant. It is advised that diabetics be supervised closely by their healthcare practitioner.
