Related Study On The effect Of D-ribose On Fibromyalgia
A 2012 study published in Open Pain Journal involved 257 fibro patients from various clinics. Patients were assessed a week before the treatment and at an interval of one week during the trial period. Participants were asked to assess their level of energy, quality of sleep, cognitive function, level of pain and overall well-being.
203 patients successfully completed the test and these were the findings:
- 61.3 percent reported having more energy
- 29.3 percent reported better sleep
- 30 percent reported improved cognitive functioning.
- 15.6 percent reported pain reduction
- 37 percent reported improved overall well-being
These improvements started to show in the first week of treatment. They eventually increased all throughout the three-week trial period.
