Corvalen M® contains pure D -ribose, a safe and clinically researched ingredient that supports the natural way our bodies produce adenosine tri phosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the cell. Ribose is the vital structural backbone of critical cellular compounds called purines and pyrimidines. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of purines and pyrimidines to form major cellular constituents such as our genetic material (DNA and RNA), numerous cofactors, certain vitamins, and, importantly, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Ribose is the starting point for the synthesis of these fundamental cellular compounds, and the availability of ribose determi nes the rate at which they can be made by our cells and tissues.
D-ribose is a structural component of DNA, RNA, ATP, GTP, flavins (FAD, riboflavin) and other important nucleotides found in all living cells. Ribose is formed naturally via the pentose pho sphate pathway. This pathway is slow and rate- limited in cardiac and skeletal muscle due to an inherently low concentration (lack of expression) of the enzymes, glucose- 6-phosphate dehydrogenase and 6- phosphogluconate dehydrogenase. The product of this pat hway is ribose- 5-phosphate, which in turn is converted to 5 -phosphoribosyl -1- pyrophosphate (PRPP), the primary driver in the synthesis and salvage of purine nucleotides. No other compound can be used by the body for this metabolic purpose. Purine nucleoti des (ATP and its precursors) lost due to ischemia, hypoxia, or genetic predisposition are replaced via the purine nucleotide pathway. This pathway is rate limited by the availability of ribose in tissue. Administration of exogenous ribose bypasses the rate- limiting steps in the pentose phosphate pathway, resulting in a significant acceleration of PRPP.
Adults take one scoop (two teaspoons) daily with a meal or as directed by your healthcare professional. Dissolve powder in water, juice, or other beverage and consume.
No adverse effects have been reported unless taking doses gr eater than 10 grams of ribose at one time, which may result in loose stools.
CAUTIONS: Mild, transient hypoglycemia may occur if taken on an empty stomach. Insulin dependent diabetics and pregnant women should consult their physician before use. Ribose may cause a transient increase in uric acid levels; therefore those that have chronic gout should consult their physician before use. Ribose may compete for phosphoglucomutase, a liver enzyme responsible for glycogen mobilization.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: Conditions of hypermagnesemia.
