"Years ago I ran across reference to calcium pyruvate while in the library reading a book about results experienced by college football teams in using supplements during training.
One official stated that calcium pyruvate did make a difference when it came to weight control and the apparent metabolism of food...
I was impressed by the source of the information (not sponsored by a supplement company) and the assurance placed on the results so I started using it. In my life, after a meal, pyruvate seems to promote digestion and encourage physical warmth after taking in food that I don't experience if I do not take pyruvate. To me that is an indicator of accelerated metabolization.
Since I work out, I use a high protein diet. Taking pyruvate, and I use it above the recommended dosage, allows me to take in more calories and maintain, or perhaps even lose, weight."
"This product was part of what my weight loss physician recommended in my weight loss program. I pay much less through Vitacost! It's like having high intake of fiber per day! Dosage:2 capsules twice a day right before a meal with lots of water per day. Very successful in losing weight! Thanks Vitacost for helping us to save MONEY!"
"I love this product because it does not affect my stomach..they are easy to digest and make me eat less! If I forget to take them before a meal, I just take 1 right after, usually at lunch and dinner. Compared to most things out there, they are very affordable here."
"I have to say as a woman who is a little obsessed with being leaner than average: use pyruvate and you can 'cheat' with the carbs and still keep/get a six-pack!! Take it from a 30-year-old mother of two (one child is chronically ill and cannot move; which forces me to be sedentary most of the day to be with her.) I would definitely recommend this product for anyone wanting to speed up results, maintain results or to overeat once in a while! =)"
