When Young Living launched one of its most exciting products, NingXia Nitro™, founder and CEO D. Gary Young was confident of its success. Although he was entering an industry saturated with options, NingXia Nitro’s unique formula and health benefits fueled his confidence. By blending together pure essential oils and powerful cognitive enhancers, Gary created a product that supports mental acuity and enhances physical performance. These cognitive enhancers include not only well-known B vitamins, green tea extract, and ginseng; but they also include a proprietary Nitro Alert™ oil blend consisting of vanilla and chocolate oils, yerba mate, spearmint, peppermint, nutmeg, black pepper, wolfberry seed oil, and ribose.
What is ribose and why was it added? Ribose is a five-carbon sugar that is naturally produced in every cell and is the backbone of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a fundamental energy compound that drives nearly all chemical reactions in human cells. Although it is a sugar, it is metabolized differently than sucrose or glucose and is absorbed instantly into the bloodstream. Unlike other sugars, excess ribose isn’t converted into fat by the body; instead, it is saved for use in ATP energy production. This vital difference is key to the importance of supplementing; and doing so supports cellular energy levels, energy recovery, and energy reserves. It also supports healthy energy levels in the heart and muscles.
- Naturally occurring
- Kosher and Halal certified
If that isn’t enough to convince you of the power of this product, Bioenergy Ribose is currently part of the training regimens of many Olympic athletes. These athletes not only undergo extreme physical stress, but they are also limited to natural supplements and subjected to extensive testing. If ribose can help top athletes support their energy levels, just think of what it can do for you.
