When renowned neurosurgeon and athlete Dr. Joseph Maroon began planning his climbing expedition of Mount Kilimanjaro, he was certain that his equipment must include Bioenergy Ribose. A sports fitness expert, Maroon knows that D-Ribose will help his muscles recover faster from the extreme exertion. It will also help to reduce stiffness and soreness. “D-Ribose will be in my water bottles,” he confirms.
Maroon is participating as the medical advisor for the first-ever climb of Mount Kilimanjaro by 11 amputees, organized by the Live Free Foundation. The climb will begin on February 20, and the group will attempt to reach the summit in five days. At 19,341 feet above sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak.
Bioenergy Ribose has been Maroon’s ‘secret weapon’ during past athletic feats including his participation in Iron Man Triathlons.
