100% Pure Ribose Powder
This seems to help my energy levels a bit. I tried a different brand but didn't feel anything..... very disappointing.This was a few dollars more (still much cheaper than most Ribose Powder out there) but with this product I did notice something. It comes with a little scoop which makes measuring convenient.You must take it at least 3 times a day. I'm using this along with CoQ10 and L-Carnitine. It's not a magic bullet for me but ANY increased energy is welcome.

Good for Cardiovascular Health
After seeing this product touted by well-known cardiologists like Stephen Sinatra, I decided to try it, and it seems to be beneficial energywise, and I assume it is helpful for my cardiovascular system. It is a bit expensive, but this 300 gram powder size is a much better value than the pill form.
I have been taking this for several years now, and will continue to.

100% Ribose Powder
Ribose Powder increases my energy which makes my workout more effective. I take it every morning on an empty stomach with water. I would take it more often but it is somewhat expensive so I limit my consumption to once a day.

Purchased this as a supplement for my heart. It seems to being doing what it is meant to do. Could dissolve better, but I think that is the nature of the beast.

Can't Go a Day Without It
This has been the best Ribose I have found. It blends well with my daily regimen since I can add it to smoothies or morning tea. I cannot recommend this enough!

Great value for excellent product!
My husband and I have been taking d-ribose daily for years. It seems to give us more energy. Swanson's Ribose is a terrific value without any sacrifice of quality.

Makes me happy
I use the Ribose in my morning tea. It seems to help brighten my mood and I stay on task and am able to concentrate better. It also goes in my afternoon tea to ward off the nap attacks.

It's better taking with Vitamin C powder. Wonderful supplement for your boost energy.

a great product
I, and another family member have found this to be an extraordinary product. We use it twice a day. One person before their workouts and I in the morning and before walks. We're pleased and amazed at the extra energy. This is one product that will be a continual part of our daily regemin. I'm just sorry it took so long to learn about this great natural sugar.

AM Energy in my coffee drink
This has become a habit. Husband puts in regular coffee and I put in my Capachino drink along with some fiber. This was recommended by Dr. Becker on TV, so we tried it and kept with it. It is easy to use in morning, and now is a habitl

I do a lot of research on the Internet into different supplements that affect the body differently. Recently I discovered Ribose powder that is a natural sugar that gives your body energy at the cellular level. Being in my early 60's, I can use all of the energy I can get so I ordered a gar. After taking it a few days, I did feel as though I had more energy and my mind had more clarity. I just received my 2nd container and I intend on taking it from now on. I just add it to my cereal in the mornings like you would regular sugar but this isn't bad for you.

A spoonful of this Ribose, and I am refreshed after my workout.

i love this powder. it is a much better value than the capsules and there are no fillers. i use it on steaks before grilling and to sweeten my tea.

Ribose not totally dissolving
This product isn't dissolving as well as it used to.
January 13, 2013
Depending on what you are looking for
After doing a lot of research, I bought this Ribose powder as part of my prework out drink mix. I combined this with Creatine and BCAA with the intent of it fueling my muscles during my workouts.
This is something that I know is doing it's job, however, I don't feel any extra boost of energy as I had read in other reviews.
I do feel this product is a little expensive, but it is very good quality ingredients.
I probably won't purchase another one and just stick to my creatine and BCAA blend.

High solvent content
When I opened the container there was a very strong smell similar to methyl-ethyl-ketone. Ribose at room temperature would have a very slight sweet smell. I just returned a similar product from another source for the same complaint so I spread this in a glass baking dish, put a paper towel over it and a layer of fresh baked silica gel over that, then taped on a polyethylene cover, letting it sit to soak up the solvent. I see no excuse for the solvent and would not use the product before cleaning it. I would not recommend it to anyone that I thought would not clean it before use. There is no general yes or no answer to whether or not I would recommend it but the system won't let me post this unless I say yes or no.

didn't seem to help
Tried it for a while -- do lots of bicycling. If anything, seemed to ride a bit WORSE! But, unlike other powders, this dissolved surprisingly well.

This is food for mitochondrial energy, for ATP production! Either take extra magnesium and malic acid, or get the Ribose with these nutrients already included (also offered by Swanson's). And taken along with virgin coconut oil and NADH, you can "feed" your cells even MORE energy-making fuel.
The Ribose powder MAY seem somewhat inconvenient, but is MUCH more powerful than the "convenience" of capsules. It hits the bloodstream almost immediately in the powdered form, especially if placed directly in your mouth. You can always get empty gelatin caps and then fill them with the powder for easy transport, but the powder is actually MORE convenient in the long run:
Take a scoopful under your tongue (tastes like sugar), along with a bit of powdered dextrose for muscle and energy food, either pre or post workout, or anytime. Mix with your shake, or add to your water bottle and sip throughout the day

The powder dissolves very nicely and there is no objectionable odor like some other brands. My wife leads two exercise groups and does not like to go without it at any time. The only drawback is the newer container with less than 3 inch opening makes it difficult to reach the powder with the very short measuring scoop provided.

I HAVE referred this to others already
I have discovered this product from Swanson's and definitely would refer it to anyone who needs alittle extra pick me up. I take it daily and without it feel run down, easily fatigued, etc.

I bought this product because Swanson's recommended it when I searched for Natrol's D-Ribose. It is NOT the same as D-Ribose so they should not be recommending it as a substitute. I use D-Ribose for energy and it has changed my life, adding pep back into my day so I can get tasks done. After a week of using this product, I am so tired I can hardly do anything. I am ordering the real thing as soon as possible so I can get my life back! This product is worthless and I want my money back.
