It is believed
that what this supplement does is accomplish fat loss by increasing "cellular
respiration." What this all means in laymans terms is that amount of energy
you cells use(Metabolism). Supposedly, this supplement will work, even without exercise,
which would be nice. Is is also possible that it could increase iendurance
by up to 20% which is great for those on a diet. This added endurance menas
more intense workouts which can mean that you could achieve an anabolic
effect even while dieting which would be very hard to accomplish without
the use of steroids.
The only study
using calcium-pyuruvate on humans that I have seen was done on obese women
who weighed between 225 - 245 lbs. In this study, they were put on a 1000
calorie/week diet and either given pyruvate or a placebo as their only
supplement. The women that were not using the pyruvate lost on average
3.15 lbs. of bodyfat per week. The women that were using the pyruvate lost
on average 4.3 lbs. of bodyfat per week. The ones that were using the pyruvate
were taking 36 grams of pyruvate every day as well.
Side Effects: May cause gas, bloating, or diarrhea.
two sources of calcium-pyruvate that I have seen and this supplement is
rather expensive. Med-Pro sells it for about a cost of $.75 per gram. Health
Dynamics sells their version for $19.95 for 120 capsules that contain 500
mg. per capsule for a cost to you of $.33 per gram. Even the cheaper of
the two would still cost you about $12 per day, 72 capsules, to just duplicate
the study that I am referring to previously. The funny thing about all
of this is that the recommended dosage on the bottle is only 5 grams per
day. If you followed their dosage, you can see that the effects would be
signifigantly less than those that were performed in the study.
on this supplement is that it probably is not worth the money to use it.
There are several other supplements that promote fat loss that I know work
and work well. Supplements such as Get Lean Quick
are much more cost effective than calcium pyruvate.
