I am sensitive to many things and started with about 1/2 tsp. of the D-Ribose Powder. I was unable to sleep for 2 nights and my heart was racing. However, my blood sugars went down to normal so I did not want to just give up on it. I am now taking less than 1/16 the of a tsp. and seem to be tolerating it and my blood sugars are still in a more normal range. At this point, I am taking it every other day. I must remember to not start out with full doses on anything new, D-Ribose Powder seems like a good product.
Pros:Lower blood glucose readings.
Cons:Increased my heart rate too much at the suggested dose. Very much of a stimulant for me.
