Here to see which ones really work and which ones are just
Pyruvate is a carbohydrate naturally found
in red apples, cheeses, and red wine. A discovery
made at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
showed that a diet supplemented with Pyruvate increased
fat loss by up to 48% and minimized the associated loss
of body protein. Normally, during dietary restriction to
promote fat loss, there is always a corresponding loss of
muscle, but this study shows otherwise.
Scientists who have studied Pyruvate believe it may
accelerate fat loss by increasing "cellular respiration,"
which is the amount of energy the mitochondria uses. Some
believe that calcium Pyruvate may even reduce fat without
exercise making it an extremely attractive "fat burner"
for those people who have trouble sticking to a diet or
an exercise routine. For those who are able to maintain
a strict exercise routine, but have trouble losing weight,
Pyruvate may help them attain their goals without nervousness
or jittery feelings commonly associated with most over the
counter thermogenic fat burners. The fact that calcium Pyruvate
may increase endurance by up to 20% makes it even more attractive
to bodybuilders and anyone who is on a calorie restricted
diet because of how hard it is to get intense workouts once
you have cut back on calories. The added endurance may make
getting an intense workout easier.
Preliminary research and anecdotal evidence with humans
(bodybuilders) has been promising. Some research protocol
is as much as 30 grams of Pyruvate daily. Unfortunately,
this much Pyruvate would result in an upset stomach in most
people. Therefore, it would seem that for it to be effective,
it would be necessary to consume large amounts of Pyruvate.
Perhaps the nausea associated with the large dosage is what
helps dieters lose weight, as they can neither keep food
down or want to eat.
