ARO-Vitacost Black Series Energy Pure D-Ribose Unflavored -- 5 grams - 10.6 oz (300 g)
seems to work
i take a group of about 5 things before i work out, arginine, citrulline, creatine, methyl b12 and TMG or trymethylglycine...AND this.
each one of these i've added selectively to my pre-workout mix and have seen improvements, as i have with ribose. ribose seems to give me more energy during my workouts, whether my run or weight workout. however, since there is a synergistic effect from these particular supplements i can't really break it down further than that, though it is also supposed to spare ATP in your system. i certainly will keep using it, and this brand has a good taste and consistency so i'll stick with it.

I like this product, esp. quantity for the price when its on sale! Other reviewers complaining about clumps..thats true! But, all you have to do is turn the container upside down occasionally and SHAKE it folks!! That practice is recommended for many supps., esp the pre workouts, or moisture works its way into the bottle and get a HORRIBLE clump!

Texture not uniform
The product was a mixture of smooth powder and very hard lumps (up to 1/2" in diameter). Very difficult to measure out a consistent quantity without trying to crush the lumps.

My workouts are great with this product
I take it before I run and after I run. It tastes great....like sugar and it gives me the energy I need to get through my run.

I had used Vitacost d Ribose previously when it came in their blue an silver container and was very happy. I believe it was made by Bioenergy. It had a sugar consistency . When I no longer saw the 300gm available, I went with their Aro brand. The consistency is horrible, almost like moisture had affected the product. Its more like a powdery clump. Last time for this product. It's the first Vitacost product that I wasn't satisfied with.
