Effects of ribose supplementation on selected metabolic measurements and performance in maximally exercising Thoroughbreds.

Abstract/OtherAbstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of ribose supplementation on blood ammonia-N, plasma lactic acid, plasma glucose, volume of oxygen consumption (VO2), heart rate, and performance in Thoroughbred geldings performing a maximal treadmill standardized exercise test (SET). The hypothesis tested was that ribose supplementation would decrease ammonia-N and lactic acid accumulation during exercise, and improve performance. ...

Results from this study show that supplementation with 0.15 g ribose/kg BW twice daily in the diet of conditioned Thoroughbred geldings for 2 wk does not influence blood ammonia-N, plasma lactic acid, plasma glucose, VO2, heart rate, or performance during SET or the first 30 min of recovery.
