Has anybody ever been shown to be deficient in D-ribose?

Oh Kiwi, is there a test for this deficiency? And if there is I'd bet I would come out very low if there is such a test...just like other nutrients in our bodies that we can be deficient in. I wonder if all those taking A/D drugs ever did a test for these to see if their bodies are deficient, ummm

Does our body naturally produce DRibose? Thanks.

D-ribose is found in all foods.

It is also produced in the body by the pentose phosphate pathway.

There is no evidence of deficiencies of it.

Understanding D-Ribose and Mitochondrial Function



With many pathologic conditions and aging, mitochondrial function declines, and there is a reduction in the production of adenosine triphosphate. The energy carrying molecule generated by cellular respiration and by pentose phosphate pathway, an alternative pathway of glucose metabolism. D-ribose is a naturally occurring monosaccharide found in the cells and particularly in the mitochondria is essential in energy production. Without sufficient energy, cells cannot maintain integrity and function. Supplemental D-ribose has been shown to improve cellular processes when there is mitochondrial dysfunction. When individuals take supplemental D-ribose, it can bypass part of the pentose pathway to produce D-ribose-5-phosphate for the production of energy.

There is evidence not to take not to take D-Ribose, at least in the long term.


Gavage of D-Ribose induces Aβ-like deposits, Tau hyperphosphorylation as well as memory loss and anxiety-like behavior in mice

These results demonstrate that a long-term oral administration of D-Ribose not only induces memory loss with anxiety-like behavior, but also elevates Aβ-like deposition and Tau hyperphosphorylation, presenting D-Ribose-gavaged mouse as a model for age-related cognitive impairment and diabetic encephalopathy.

Instead of taking expensive D-Ribose wouldn't it be safer and and more efficient to drink Beetroot Juice, it lowers Blood Pressure, improves blood flow and significantly improves energy levels

Caroline2, some people can be deficient in hydrogen dioxide. Fortunately hydrogen dioxide is available (for money of course) from many suppliers of supplements.

Hydrogen dioxide is usually called water.

My parable is to illustrate that people who believe that by definition supplements are always good and are always better than anything else are not thinking clearly.

Our today's foods are so depleted, especially here in the U.S. where we have a huge population and the foods and soils are being turned over constantly to keep the masses fed with some t ypes of foods....

I'll do what I feel is right for my body and I've come a pretty long distance of good health with what I'm doing...my health issue as I've said many times is a damaged hip replacement.....my body is so damage for being cut up.
