Abstract: 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 high-intensity exercise. The following commentary addresses the altered metabolic energy state during exercise in equines.
Keywords: equines, energy, ATP, D-ribose
