The basic energy source in the body is a compound called adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. Adenosine is made up of one molecule of adenine and a five-carbon sugar known as ribose. The stores of ATP are quite limited, there’s enough to supply maximum energy for only 10 seconds of intense muscular contraction. Two primary pathways exist to help use AMP in the creation of ATP. One is called the salvage pathway, a system in which the body tries to salvage AMP breakdown products. Ribose favors this more efficient salvage pathway, thus allowing better ATP recycling and consequent increased muscular recovery after training. When ribose is insufficient, ATP must be made from scratch in a pathway called the 'de novo', or new, pathway. That occurs when the body has excreted too much of the metabolic by-products of AMP that serve as precursors for ATP. While having enough ribose available favors the more efficient salvage pathway, the fact is that ribose is also required for the 'de novo' pathway.

As we can see ribose can be a rate-limiting step in ATP regeneration and therefore cell energy and recovery are heavily dependent on ribose. Creatine and ribose are the best synergistic combination for maximal strength, energy and cell-volumization resulting in exceptional muscle mass and strength gains.

Directions: Take 2 servings a day, one after training and one before bedtime.
