A supplement for heart failure?

Heart failure: Best options when ejection fraction is preserved (J Fam Pract. 2013;62:236-243) was an excellent article about a tough problem. I have been using d-ribose for more than 5 years, with good results for both systolic and diastolic heart failure. D-ribose—which is made in the body from riboflavin found in many foods or can be purchased as an inexpensive supplement—has been cited in the literature for its beneficial effects.1,2
