    I have D-Ribose and D-Ribose Corvalen (with Malic and MAgnesium).
    I am finding that after four days of D-Ribose Carvalen I am feeling tired. I put this down to the possible reason that Magnesium is making me tired and messing with my salt levels. I just took some salt water and that gave me a real boost.
    Do you think its the magnesium?
    And, what should I be looking out for when taking D-Ribose? Does it deplete anything?

    Oh right, I forgot Corvalen had other stuff in it. You mentioned you have plain d-ribose as well, have you tried just taking that to see if you have the same effect?

    Also, what dose are you taking of the Corvalen?

    5g x three times per day.
    No I might cut back. I just started taking the plain D-Ribose.
    I read elsewhere that D-Ribose can make some people tired.

    Yeah you might want to drop back to 3g two to three times a day and see if that helps. d-ribose can cause an increase in blood sugar so I believe it's similar to how sugar can make you tired as well.

    I have cut it out for the moment while I recover. I might try to reintroduce it at a lower dose and with meals in the future. I might take it just before or just after exercise. When I take it it does give me a discernible boost but tiredness sets in 1 hr afterwards.
