"Calcium Pyruvate is terrific. It actually works for me. I could see a difference in the size of my belly in literally a couple of days if that. I have stubborn belly fat which is the only thing I can't lose every time I diet. The rest of my body will get lean, but my belly is my struggle. I love that this substance is naturally occurring in nature too. I don't get the jitters. The first time I took it I had a ton of energy. It was awesome! I think it gives me energy now but I've been taking it for a few weeks now so I might be used to it. It also doesn't keep me up if I take it at night. I've really been off my diet for the past 3 weeks so I haven't seen a dramatic reduction in my belly but I can see the potential of this product once I'm back on the clean eating wagon. What I do see though is my belly is not poking out nearly as much as it was before. The Pyruvate is flattening it out for sure. Yes!"
"Taking 2x a day....not sure if it's working yet - have been taking for a month. I do feel like I have more energy, but I also have a lot going on right now (moving to a new city, downsizing my house, looking for a new job....) my body may be absorbing everything it's getting and needs more. Will continue to take and see what happens."
"I love that I can get the same quality product that I was buying at my doctor's office for way less. I love saving money! I take this along with Vitacost Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA fish oil 2126 mg. I will be ordering more when I run out."
"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!"
