If you have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue, a relatively new supplement may offer you major relief. And, surprise, it's a sugar.

No, it's not like glucose or sucrose. It's a supplement we call ribose. Ribose is a five-carbon sugar - unlike its more common six-carbon chain relatives. Ribose actually helps form the skeleton of your DNA. It's also a key component of a molecule called ATP. ATP is the most important energy molecule in your body. When ribose is in short supply, your body won't be able to make sufficient ATP. Your energy will be in much shorter supply, and fatigue may result.

Researchers conducted a pilot study on 41 patients with fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue. The participants experienced significant improvement with a dose of five grams, three times daily. They all tolerated it well. Two-thirds of the participants experienced significantly improved mental clarity, sleep, well being, and global assessment parameters. They also had reduced pain intensity. The ribose increased their energy by an average of 45% and their overall well being by 30%.

Most doctors consider fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue tough to treat. Many of them have trouble diagnosing them. If you suffer from either condition, any single supplement with this much benefit deserves your attention. It will be far less expensive than medical treatment. You might combine ribose with Seanol (Fibroboost), also shown to help these conditions.

Ribose is an amazing supplement. It is helpful for heart disease, especially heart failure. It also helps impaired energy production. I'll have more on this exceptional nutrient in an upcoming issue of my newsletter Second Opinion. If you're not a subscriber, you can order it on my website and get up to 17 reports for free. You can find ribose at many health food stores and on the Internet. I like the brand Corvalen. I recommend you take five grams, three times per day.
