Cytose is a patented medical food developed with a nontoxic form of D-ribose; in fact, Cytose contains the only form of D-ribose Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA.
For patients with mitochondrial cytopathies related to AMP deaminase deficiency, symptomatic relief is reportedly sometimes achieved by administering ribose orally at a specified dosage based on body weight.
Cytose comes in powder form, with each scoop containing 5.0 g of pure D-ribose. This product must be taken with an additional carbohydrate food source. Available for purchase only on behalf of individuals under medical supervision and current medical care, Cytose is allergen-tested at no detectable level (NDL) for gluten, eggs, wheat, fish, crustacean, corn, soy, tree nuts, and peanut. It is also free of GMOs.
Solace Nutrition realizes that in many cases, especially when using our medical foods for managing specific medical conditions, more in-depth knowledge may be required. Please contact our experienced customer service team immediately if this applies. We are happy to work with you one-on-one to assist with utilizing Cytose most effectively for each individual patient.
