Lose Weight with Sugar?

Lose Weight with Sugar?

Before you run to your local donut store, bakery, or pastry shop to chow down on sweets, keep reading.  Most forms of sugars cause weight GAIN.  But new research  shows that a particular type of sugar called D-ribose, or sometimes just ribose for short, can actually help with weight LOSS and boost energy levels.

Research shows that D-ribose is metabolized by the body to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP).  ATP is the body’s energy supply and is used by every cell for every metabolic function.  D-ribose helps by resetting the body’s ATP levels thereby supplying the body with sufficient energy for burning fat, balancing blood sugar levels, warding off cravings, and of course, boosting energy levels.  That’s not such a bad thing either since we all need energy to exercise and keep active or just to feel good.

Many athletes also take D-ribose to boost endurance levels, performance, and recovery time.
