Ribose is present within every living cell of the body and is used to manufacture ATP (the energy currency of the cell) from scratch. Whilst the body can manufacture its own ribose from glucose, this requires energy and is a very slow process. Research into ribose supplementation has proven that taking as little as 3-5grams per day will return cellular levels of ATP to normal within 6-22 hours of exhaustive exercise. Without supplementation, this is likely to take between 26 and 93 hours. Whilst all living cells contain ribose, there is not enough in the food we eat to re-stock energy levels. Ribose in meat is predominantly lost through the cooking process and there are insufficient quantities of the nutrient in plant foodstuffs to have any effect. Add to this the fact that it can take many days for the body to synthesise its own ribose from glucose and the benefits of supplementing with this nutrient become clear. Torq Raw Supplement – Ribose is very quickly absorbed into the bloodstream with much of this absorption occurring before it is even swallowed. Once in the muscle cell itself, ribose can be very quickly transformed into ATP.
We’re not suggesting that supplementing with Torq ribose will make you more powerful. The available research doesn’t support this. What the research does clearly indicate however, is that you will recover more quickly after heavy exercise, which means that the quality of your training during periods of high physical load will improve. Torq Recovery Drink contains ribose at the research recommended levels already, so if you are using this product, it may not be necessary for you to purchase Raw Torq ribose also. Torq ribose in its Raw form can be added to other brand’s recovery products if you want to boost their effectiveness. Torq ribose can also be added to your energy drink during ultra-endurance events. This practice can help you to ‘recover on the hoof’, because the synthesis of ATP from Ribose is extremely rapid, so from 6 hours into an event you will start to benefit from the earlier doses. This is a product strongly recommended for Ultra-Endurance events over 6 hours in duration.
