Driv™ by FANDALABS® is a great tasting, all natural, caffeine-free, gluten-free, non-GMO, effervescent energy powder. Driv provides critical nutrients to those in need. Many people experience extended periods of fatigue during the course of their lives which may be caused by chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, impaired methylation due to the MTHFR gene mutation, or an over-stressed lifestyle. For many, Driv can help end the fatigue!
Energy depletion can be caused by mitochondria malfunction and most CFS, fibromyalgia and MTHFR symptoms can be explained by this mitochondrial failure as:
Mitochondrial dysfunction lowers the levels of brain neurotransmitters (dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin), which makes thinking processes harder and causes the aptly named brain fog.
Low energy production and lactic acid accumulation make recovery after exercise harder and results in muscle fatigue, pain and soreness.
Mitochondrial dysfunction also influences digestion, immune system function and heart function.
How can we improve mitochondrial function and boost energy production? D-Ribose is a natural nutrient that improves the function of cellular energy furnaces. D-Ribose is a five carbon sugar, naturally found in our bodies. It is unlike any other sugar and works like kindling for our mitochondria. It is the key building block of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the main energy molecule in the body. We need Ribose to make ATP and keep the fire going.
In normal circumstances, healthy heart and muscles can make enough Ribose to meet their needs. But sometimes tissues can get over-exhausted and the vital production starts lagging behind. This can result in persistent pain, fatigue and stiffness that doesn’t go away.
Each easy-to-use 5 calorie single serving Driv packet contains a clinically significant amount (2 grams) of D-Ribose, along with electrolytes magnesium, potassium and sodium, and key nutrients Creatine, Taurine and Niacin which work together to accentuate the body’s natural process of energy synthesis. This enables muscles (including the heart) to stay energized and strong – reducing cramping, increasing energy, improving performance and speeding recovery.
