    Bone loss and low calcium intake may fuel the growth of breast cancer in the bone Having higher levels of calcium may decrease the amount of damage caused in the brain by a stroke Calcium may protect different bones from fracture in younger (forearm) vs. older women (the hip) Once breast cancer moves to a different site it becomes harder to treat. The most common site for metastasis is the lymph nodes under the arm or collarbone.

  • D-Ribose improves diastolic function and the quality of life in congestive heart failure patients

    Oct 09, 2007
    Coronary heart disease (CHD) is clogging of the arteries inside the heart that decreases the flow of blood and supply of oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. CHD weakens the heart muscle and often leads to congestive heart failure in sufferers despite the use of the most advanced and protective drugs (another cause of heart failure is the damage caused during a heart attack). In heart failure (HF) the heart cannot effectively pump enough blood to the rest of the body because it lacks the force to do so.
  • D-Ribose improves energy and reduces pain in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia

    Oct 08, 2007
    D-Ribose is a sugar involved with the creation of energy in the cell and research shows that D-Ribose increases cellular energy production in our skeletal muscles and our heart muscle. In chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FMS) there is impairment in energy metabolism in the cell. In this study 41 patients diagnosed with either CFS or FMS were supplemented with D-Ribose, 5 grams 3 times a day for a total of 56 doses (18.67 days).
