70 Years Old and Still Running Strong - Dr. Joe Maroon, Neurosurgeon to Pittsburgh Steelers, Competes in Ford Ironman World Championship.

70-year-old neurosurgeon Dr. Joe Maroon, MD, competed in the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii this past weekend, finishing in 15:40:31, cutting 17 minutes off his 2008 time. This was the 7th Ironman for Dr. Maroon, who credits his endurance to a healthy Mediterranean diet supplemented with D-Ribose, fish oil, resveratrol, COQ-10, alpha lipoic acid and Longevity Factor multi-vitamins, all available at GNC.

"I have been using D-ribose, green tea and grape seed extract in my water bottles for years," says Dr. Maroon. "In addition to the COQ-10 and alpha lipoic acid, they restore cellular energy, respiration, cardiac and skeletal muscle function, particularly with high intensity workouts."

Bioenergy markets the only patented brand of D-ribose, found in many energy and athletic performance functional foods and beverages. Bioenergy RIBOSE® stimulates the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the essential energy compound found in the body. Bioenergy Corvalen with D-ribose is available through professional experts nationwide.

Dr. Maroon, who performs about 450 operations per year, has noticed an improvement in his professional ability due to his diet and high level of physical activity. He explains, "This lifestyle enhances my surgical ability. Neurosurgery is an endurance event, too. There can be very lengthy operations that can take hours at a time."

In addition to his work with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dr. Maroon is medical adviser to GNC and Nordic Naturals and ResVitale, and a member of the board of directors for Mylan Laboratories.
