At present medicine is considered nonsteroid anabolic steroid. Application of any means demands the preliminary analysis of its useful qualities, side effects and contraindications. Let's consider inosine in more detail.

Recommend to apply it in the following cases:

It is also considered to be what ribonozin promotes transportation of oxygen on the way from lungs to cages. However as proved scientific research, on the example of athletes, it does not influence oxygen consumption in any way. The scientific experiment on 9 runners was made. All participants were divided into 2 groups. One of which accepted inosine within 3 days (on 2 g a day), and another accepted placebo. After a course in 3 days of all participants asked to pass a running in 3 km. By results scientists could not reveal the essential differences between athletes taking this drug from other group.
