NOW Pyruvate, 1000 mg, 180 Tabs


  • Calcium Pyruvate
  • Cellular Fuel
  • Vegetarian/Vegan


Pyruvate is a key metabolite of carbohydrate metabolism that is needed to begin the citric acid cycle, the process by which cells produce energy in the form of ATP. As the main chemical fuel of the body, ATP powers most vital functions throughout the body, including muscular movement. Pyruvate is also important in a number of other metabolic pathways, including those that result in fat and protein metabolism, as well as in glycogen storage. Pyruvate can therefore help to readily replenish cellular fuel supply and facilitate energy production.

Calcium pyruvate supplements help burn excess fat. They are particularly effective at reducing fat around the stomach area and minimizing fat stores in the thighs. They work particularly well in those who are on a healthy sensible diet and are exercising regularly as it converts food into energy and boosts metabolism. Other beneficial side effects may include lower blood pressure, and lower cholesterol levels.

Its anti-oxidant properties help fight the natural aging process. Athletes find calcium pyruvate supplements can help build muscle, providing sustained energy and strength while fighting fatigue. Studies showed that taking 25 grams of calcium pyruvate a day along with 75 grams dihydroxyacetone can increase triceps muscles by 20 per cent. Calcium pyruvate supplements can be an effective aid to those trying to lose weight.

It gives an added boost to fat burning, increases the amount of energy used and speeds up the desired weight loss while preventing fat production. The University of Pittsburg conducted trials on a group of obese women who were given 1000 calories per day for three weeks along with 30grams of calcium pyruvate. The women lost 48% more fat than the control group, showing it can be an effective dietary supplement for increasing energy and losing more weight faster.

As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablet daily, preferably with food. We recommend using this product with a rigorous diet and exercise program for best results.
