Can I have D-Ribose>

Recommended Posts

"Ribose is classified as a monosaccharide. Unlike glucose, ribose is not directly oxidized to provide energy for cellular metabolism. Rather, ribose is incorporated into molecules that are used to transfer energy from place to place within your cells. It also serves as a critical structural component of chromosomes and forms the basis of the transcriptional apparatus which translates genes into proteins. " from Livestrong.com.

It supposedly has a mildly sweet taste, but, like Stevia, not one everyone likes.

I'm interested because my wife has heart failure and D-Ribose is o recommended for it.

If this has been prescribed by a doctor to your wife then she may have it and whether it follows the rules or not is moot.  If it's one of those things like Acai or other super foods that people say is great for xyz, like a glass of red wine a day is good for xyz then no.
