D-Ribose is a five-carbon sugar that constitutes the backbone of RNA, a biopolymer that is the basis of genetic transcription. D-Ribose is related to deoxyribose, as found in DNA. Once phosphorylated, ribose can become a subunit of ATP, NADH, and several other compounds that are critical to metabolism like the secondary messengers cAMP and cGMP.
Supplementation of D-ribose may help support a healthy metabolism, especially energy production.
