D-Ribose Availability

I had some requests about where to buy D-Ribose, so GOOGLE, here I come!

Firstly, the report I read stated (at the end) that Douglas Laboratories exclusively distributes Bioenergy’s Corvalen for professional use; Nutri-Health Supplements, LLC, sells Corvalen through direct-to-consumer channels; and Sedona Labs distributes Corvalen to the retail health food store market.

Then, I did my own search:

Better Health International sells Corvalen D-Ribose 9.9 oz (280 g) (containing Pure D-Ribose) for US $30.99 and Corvalen M 12 oz (340 g) (Containing Malate and Magnesium in addition to D-Ribose) for US $33.75.

Biovea Australia sells D-RIBOSE 1000mg 60 Fruit Chewable Tablets by Source Naturals® for AU $35.95.

iHERB.com has 25 different versions ranging from US $25.99 to US $49.08 – this also includes powder form

Amazon is selling NOW D-RIBOSE 100% PURE POWDER for US $20.00

The recommended dosage for us FM sufferers is 5 grams three times a day (this amount was suggested by Dr Teitelbaum).

If you’d like to see iHerb’s selection of D-Ribose products, click here. Use Coupon Code LHJ194 to get $10 off any first time order over $40 or $5 off any first time order under $40.

Please consult your doctor as to which brand/form is appropriate for your use, and to discuss side effects.

  1. I’ve been using Corvalen from Douglas Labs, and the (much cheaper) D-Ribose from NOW brand. I found Corvalen was more effective (didn’t need to take as much) but also WAY more expensive. The effectiveness of both seem to have tapered off over time…or maybe I got used to feeling a bit better. Regardless, I have found that D-Ribose has probably made the biggest difference for me after trying many many different supplements and protocols. I now take it along with magnesium (malic acid), B-12 shots, and iron (I’m chronically low in iron according to my bloodwork), as well as inulin, CoQ10, fish oil, and Vit D in the winter.

  2. Amazon does not ship this product to Australia but, Better Health ships the Corvalen brand here.

  3. I just tried the D- ribose. I started about 3-4 days ago. We have been on a weekend trip and I have done more than I ever thought I could do. I am so tired from all the activity but pleased at the results. I think I will get the powder from Amazon as the pills I got were $18.00 US for 60 pills and you take 6 a day. Thank you for the information!

  4. Many of the main health food suppliers in the UK sell D-Ribose, but as it’s for performance, tablets are around 750-850mg a go! However I have read more about foods that are high in Ribose, so maybe, if you can’t find or afford tablets etc, a change in diet might help. Yes, I know diet is also difficult for those suffering with FMS, as usually weight is a problem due to lack of activity and IBS tends to go hand in hand with FMS, but I say anything is worth a try 🙂

  6. I’ve been using the NOW brand of d-ribose for a couple years now, and it really was the turning point for me and my pain/energy levels. I must say I don’t take it as regularly as I used to, but I still take it more days of the week than not! Once I started juicing every day, I have tapered off the d-ribose because juicing has made me feel SO much better. I attribute most of the helpful effect of the juice from apples.

    Thanks for putting up this site and for helping those of us with fibro!

    Ribose got my attention. My concern: I have Type II Diabetes and Ribose can impact glucose levels. Any other diabetics out there taking Ribose? Will definitely talk to my doctor about it next appointment.
