- Douglas Laboratories Corvalen Chews are natural D-ribose chewable tablets clinically proven to help restore energy, support cardiac function and reduce muscle stiffness, soreness, and fatigue.
D-ribose is a natural pentose sugar that is designed for the support of cardiovascular health, fatigue, energy production, and mitochondrial function.*
Douglas Laboratories Corvalen chewable tablets are great tasting with natural orange/vanilla flavoring sweetened with xylitol and readily absorbed into the body.
Corvalen contains pure D-ribose, a safe and clinically researched ingredient that supports the natural way our bodies produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the cell.*
Ribose is the vital structural backbone of critical cellular compounds called purines and pyrimidines. Our bodies must have an adequate supply of purines and pyrimidines to form major cellular constituents such as our genetic material (DNA and RNA), numerous cofactors, certain vitamins, and, importantly, adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
Ribose is the starting point for the synthesis of these fundamental cellular compounds, and the availability of ribose determines the rate at which they can be made by our cells and tissues.
D-ribose is indicated for sports and fitness activities because it helps to reduce the loss of energy during stress and accelerate energy and tissue/muscle recovery. Endurance athletes and strength training athletes will both benefit from the effects of Douglas Labs Corvalen Chews.
Unless our hearts have an adequate supply of ribose, they simply cannot satisfy their astonishing energy demand. Our bodies make ribose naturally, but in times of stress, the need is greater than our supply to satisfy the loss of energy from our cells.
That is why supplementing with d-ribose can support proper heart function and helps maintain healthy stroke volume during and after high-intensity exercise.*
Douglas Laboratories Corvalen Chews are GRAS (generally recognized as safe), a determination that results only after considerable toxicology studies are performed and an expensive and time-consuming FDA process is completed.

I have been taking this for a few years. Glad to find this place carries the brand I like.
A blood test revealed my mitochondria were a bit unhappy, and so I started this a few weeks ago. Just one with breakfast, and I feel an energy boost all day. I do wish it didn't have natural orange flavor, as that upset my stomach if I don't have a big enough breakfast.
