Ribose

see wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ribose) where they state

“Ribose is an organic compound with the formula C5H10O5; specifically, a monosaccharide (simple sugar) with linear form H−(C=O)−(CHOH)4−H, which has all the hydroxyl groups on the same side in the Fischer projection.”

Ribose is used by those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to boost their energy. Ribose is a precursor to ATP.
