Metabolic energy changes during exercise in equines

2010 Veterinary Medicine : Research and Reports  
High-intensity exercise can lower skeletal muscle energy levels in equines. Publications have substantiated this decline in muscular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels following intense exercise sessions. Adequate energy levels are crucial for the maintenance of cellular integrity and function. D-ribose, a natural occurring carbohydrate, enhances the regeneration in muscular ATP levels following stressful conditions and has the potential to play a substantial role in energy recovery following
