After a heart attack a very short time for restoration and production of energy is ahead. Failure to restore energy in cells of the cardiovascular system can cause permanent damage to the heart muscle.
D-ribose is a very inexpensive composition which can protect the body and cells of the cardiovascular system from damages due to a heart attack.
Cardiologists slowly recognize specific preparations as potential protection and cure for some cardiovascular diseases, especially ischemic heart diseases which represent background of most cases of heart attacks. When deprived of blood flow, the injured heart muscle becomes soft and flabby, thus reducing its ability to pump blood efficiently to the rest of the body.
The fall of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) at low levels in the cells of the heart muscle caused by the obstruction of blood flow, must be rapidly returned to normal. This deficiency can cause long-term damage to the heart muscle, which can occur as a result of the heart attack. These consequences may arise due to the increased effects of free radicals in the mitochondria of the heart muscle cells. Due to this shortage, but also the high damage, D-ribose can be the difference between life and death, and also might preclude long-term damage to the heart muscle.
Studies conducted on animals have shown that increasing the level of ATP right after a heart attack may prevent long-term damages to the organs of those animals which have survived a heart attack. The tissue of the heart muscle is very sensitive to free radicals, which are increasing due to the return of the oxidized oxygen to the damaged area. Damaged cells rapidly use the energy from the body in order to repair any resulting damage. D-ribose produces more energy which is used for healing injuries and treatment of damaged heart muscle.
After heart surgery ATP levels are extremely low while with the intake of D ribose they are increased and at the same time the healing period of the heart muscle is reduced. A powerful protective effect of D-ribose and other components was discovered, mostly for the cases of the most stressful and dangerous situations that can befall heart.
D-ribose protects people who have heart problems and who do not have sufficient strength of the heart muscle to pump up enough blood to the rest of the organism. The result of this shortage is reduced energy, rapid fatigue of the body during stress and in many cases, problems with liver and colon. It was noted that taking D-ribose increases the energy level in organism as well as the quality of life for people with cardiovascular problems.
High level of ATP improves mental and physical activity of the body with both younger and the elderly. Increase of the levels of ATP actually heals damaged tissue and returns many life’s functions to normal, also to very sick people D-ribose may represent a small difference between life and death.
D-ribose also returns energy to all other muscles and acts refreshingly to the muscles while reducing the possibility of infection after a very heavy training.
Quantities of D-ribose for use:
Healthy people who want to protect the cardiovascular system use 5 grams of D-ribose daily.
Athletes who have strenuous training sessions take from 10 to 15 grams per day.
People who want to prevent the occurrence of major cardiovascular problems and have some of the potentially dangerous diseases take from 10 to 15 grams a day.
Individuals who are recovering from heart surgery or after a heart attack should take from 10 to 15 grams per day.
Individuals who have very severe disorders or individuals who await heart transplants should take from 10 to 30 grams per day.
