A Q for John U

About Ribose: what brand do you use and being that it reqires 20 grams do you think the delivery used by Ribose-C would allow for less quantities?

I have never used Ribose-C so I can’t really comment on it. I’m so sure that it offers any benefit with respect to ribose but creatine is absorbed better when in solution. You should buy whatever brand is cheapest. As long as it shows the Bioenergy patent on the back it is good. All legitimate ribose products get ribose from them because they hold the patent. I have no idea what is in the others. I don’t really use 20g it’s just that I found the effects increased with the dosage. I did that for about five days until I realized I could not afford it.
