Ribose - fibromyalgia, heart issues, etc.
I read a very interesting magazine article in Natural Health and how those of use with chronic health issues are depleted in ribose. We need it to stimulate our body's production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a compound that releases energy when broken down and helps power our hearts, muscles, brain and every other tissue in the body. People taking it (it's available as a supplement) have better sleep, less pain, better concentration, etc.
Here's a research link:
The issue of Natural Health is the November 2007 issue.
I hope this helps.
