Beyond CoQ10 and L-Carnitine:
This little-known “healthy sugar” can help you limit fatigue at the root cause — by building an energy pool in every single cell of your body. Proven in clinical studies.
By Frank Shallenberger, MD
If you’re sick and tired of being tired, then this is one of the most exciting messages you’ll read.
Scientists have discovered a special type of sugar that can help you limit nagging fatigue at the root cause. What’s more, this special sugar can help you, even if you’ve been suffering from debilitating fatigue for years…
… even if you’ve been unable to walk up the stairs, or walk to your mailbox without being out of breath…
… or even if you’ve been taking energy boosters like CoQ10 and L-carnitine, but without much improvement.
So what is this special sugar? It’s called ribose. Ribose is special because it has only five carbons in its chemical structure, as opposed to six carbons in common sugars, like glucose, sucrose, and fructose. These 6-carbon sugars raise blood sugar levels, and cause your body to produce insulin.
Unlike 6-carbon sugars, the 5-carbon sugar ribose does not raise blood sugar levels or cause your body to produce insulin. Instead, it helps you burn off more sugar, and limit fatigue at the root cause.
Why does ribose have such amazing effects? Well, it has to do with how the body produces energy, and how the lack of energy production is the root cause of fatigue.
The Root Cause of Fatigue
As you may know, your cells contain tiny “power plants” called mitochondria. These power plants produce an energy molecule called ATP. ATP is the source of all energy in your body. The more ATP your cells produce, the more energy you have.
Conversely, when your ATP levels are low, you feel fatigued and sluggish, as you don’t have enough energy. To restore your energy and recover from fatigue, your cells have to produce more ATP.
But the irony is that your cells need ATP to make ATP. The less ATP you have, the less ATP your cells can make. It’s a vicious cycle. As a result, your ATP levels never recover to optimal levels, even with plenty of rest. And that’s why you’re tired all the time!
Build an Energy Pool in Every Cell of Your Body
Fortunately, ribose can help recover ATP to optimal levels. How? Well, ribose makes it much easier for your cells to produce ATP. That’s because ribose is an actual building block of ATP. In fact, if you look at the chemical structure of ATP, you’ll see that it’s a ribose molecule joined to two other molecules (see diagram).
Ribose is usually made from glucose in your cells. But your cells don’t convert the ribose immediately to ATP. Instead, your cells do so only when your body needs energy. And the unused ribose is stored in your cells as reserve.
To understand how this works, think of the money in your savings account. The bigger your savings, the more money you can draw out to use. In a similar way, the more ribose stored in your cells, the more ATP and energy your cells can produce.
And that’s how you can limit fatigue at the root cause. All you have to do is build a large pool of ribose in your cells, so that they get a continuous supply of ribose to make ATP.
Proven to Work in Clinical Studies
Is ribose really that effective at limiting fatigue? Well, according to research studies, the answer is YES! For example, in one animal study, scientists took lab rats and clamped their blood vessels, in order to slow down blood flow and deprive the rats’ hearts of oxygen. This in turn caused their ATP levels to plunge. The scientists then split the rats into two groups: one received ribose, and one didn’t.
Result: The rats in the control group continued to have a serious decline in ATP levels. In contrast, the rats taking ribose saw their ATP levels go back to normal within 24 hours!1
In another animal study, scientists found that ribose sped up the recovery of fatigued muscles by up to 430%. They also found that even tiny amounts of ribose helped the cells preserve energy.2
In a Lancet study of 20 men, researchers found that those taking ribose could exercise much harder before being fatigued.
In a clinical study, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, medical director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers, took a group of 36 patients who suffered from fatigue, and gave each one a small bottle of ribose. He then told them to take the ribose daily until the bottle was empty. Result? The patients saw a dramatic improvement in their energy levels. Plus, they also reported to sleep better… think clearer… and enjoy improved well-being.3
Since then, Dr. Teitelbaum has recommended ribose for all of his patients who suffer from fatigue. And he has seen remarkable results on his patients.
In a case study published in the journal Pharmacotherapy, a veterinarian was forced to give up the practice she loved due to her debilitating fatigue. She felt depressed and helpless. So when she heard about ribose, she decided to give it a try immediately. What happened next? She was back to her operating room in 3 weeks, practicing normally without any fatigue.4
But… being a very skeptical person, she didn’t believe that a “sugar” could have such a dramatic effect on her condition. So she stopped taking ribose. Within two weeks, her debilitating fatigue returned. And again, she was forced to leave her practice. But when she resumed her ribose supplementation, her fatigue was gone in days.
That’s how effective ribose is at treating fatigue, and boosting energy. But ribose does more than that. It also…
Can strengthen Heart Muscles and Improve Heart Functions
You see, your heart pumps a large volume of blood every second. This uses up a lot of energy. This energy comes from the ATP your heart cells produce.
The problem is, when your heart is weakened, maybe due to aging or after a surgery, the heart cells are no longer able to produce enough ATP and energy. Without enough energy, the heart muscles become fatigued, and starve for even more energy. That’s why people with weakened hearts are so tired all the time. Indeed, it’s not uncommon for my heart patients to complain that they can’t even walk to their mailbox without being so out of breath that they have to sit down.
The good news is, it’s possible to strengthen your heart muscles and improve your stamina with ribose. Have a look at these studies:
In a German study, researchers took a group of heart patients and hooked them up to an echocardiograph to test their heart functions. After that, they gave the patients ribose or a placebo for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, they re-tested the heart functions of the patients.
What did they find? The patients taking ribose showed increased energy in their hearts. Their hearts filled and pumped more normally compared to the hearts of the control group. Not only that, the ribose group also reported to enjoy a better quality of life.
But the researchers didn’t stop there. They had the patients run on treadmills to see how well they performed. Compared to the control group, the ribose group could run for a much longer time before showing signs of fatigue.5 Amazing!
In another study, researchers took a group of heart patients and tested them on stationary bicycles. Result: The patients taking ribose performed much better than the control group. What’s more, the ribose group also showed to have stronger hearts, as measured by the amount of blood they pumped!
In still another study, researchers gave ribose to patients who had heart injury. What they found was amazing. The patients showed improved blood flow, improved oxygen-uptake, and greater exercise capacity.
And in yet another study, researchers gave ribose to a group of 143 patients who had previous bypass surgery. The patients showed much greater hearts’ pumping ability compared to the patients who had bypass surgery, but without taking ribose.
By now, I think you’re starting to see how ribose can really help you maintain a healthy heart, improve your stamina, and limit fatigue. By the way, there are no adverse side effects from taking ribose.
Put Ribose to Work for You… and Attack Your Nagging Fatigue
Imagine no more waking up tired or spending the day walking around like a zombie. Imagine being able to resume all the activities you love, and being able to play with your grandchildren. That’s what life promises for you with ribose.
But here’s the kicker: you cannot find ribose in any food. So the only way to boost your ribose levels is by taking a ribose supplement. That’s why my friends at Advanced Bionutritionals have agreed to start offering a ribose supplement. It’s called Corvalen®.

If you want to limit fatigue… or if you simply want to have more energy every day, Corvalen is for you. It is also the only ribose supplement that I recommend for my patients and subscribers like you. Why?
First, Corvalen is actually 100% ribose. That means every time you take Corvalen, you give your cells a whopping dose of ribose to produce energy and limit fatigue.
Second, Corvalen is made through a patented fermentation process. This process ensures the ribose produced is of high quality. In addition, the manufacturing process conforms with or exceeds standards set by the U.S. government. For you, that means the best quality possible.
Third, Corvalen is made into powder form using a patented granulation procedure. This procedure makes the Corvalen powder more resistant to moisture, so that you can store it on the shelf for a longer time. Plus, the procedure also makes the powder easier to mix with water for consumption.
Because of this intricate manufacturing process, Corvalen costs a little more than other supplements you may be taking. But here’s good news. The folks at Advanced Bionutritionals have agreed to offer a sizable discount — and free shipping — for anyone ordering a 3-month or 6-month supply.
In fact, if you order a 6-month supply, you’ll be getting all the energy-boosting power of ribose for just $1.38 a day. That’s far less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
If you’re currently relying on caffeine to keep you going, you can easily spend several dollars a day on coffee. Yet, with ribose, you won’t be getting an artificial caffeine lift that goes away after a few hours. You will be getting real lasting energy, right from your body’s own cells.
And the more energy your cells produce, the healthier your whole body will be … from your heart to your brain to your muscles and bones.
