Calcium pyruvate can enhance exercise endurance, increase cell energy, prevent or reduce due to too much caused by the consumption of fat and increase in body weight, heart, muscle inhibition efficiency, reduce the high fat fed cholesterol.
Pyruvate is a 3-carbon energy intermediate produced in cells from glucose, en route to creating ATP (the main energy currency of working cells). Pyruvate supplementation has been proposed to enhance work output and weight loss by providing more efficient energy that bypasses the ability of the body to store glucose as body fat.
Many claim that calcium pyruvate can help with weight and/or fat loss. In theory, since it is the raw material for cellular respiration, supplementing with calcium pyruvate should increase the amount of energy burned, therefore allowing for more fat burning. The question is whether this is actually the case. A study done by Dr. Ronald Stanko at the University of Pittsburgh concluded that calcium pyruvate does have this fat burning effect. Obese women were put on a 1,000-calorie diet for 21 days during this study. The group receiving calcium pyruvate experienced 48 percent higher fat loss, amounting to 3.2 extra pounds. However, very large doses of 30 grams per day were used to elicit this result. The common recommendation of 5 grams per day may not be enough to produce similar results. The expense of high dosage supplementation with calcium pyruvate may be too expensive for some. Diet-and-Health.net discounts the research, claiming that there is still no solid evidence for weight loss benefits.
1. Calcium pyruvate as dietary supplements, has accelerated fat consumption, reduce weight, enhance human endurance, improve the efficacy of athletic performance etc.
2. A special protective effect on the heart, can enhance the effectiveness of the heart muscle, causing a reduction in heart disease or cardiac ischemia injury.
3. At the same time, calcium pyruvate engulfed in a free radicals and inhibit the formation of free radicals and other significant effects.
4.Some suggest that other potential benefits of calcium pyruvate supplementation may include antioxidant activity for antiaging, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, increased glyogen storage and utilization
The effect of calcium pyruvate may be dependent on the dose, and if you’re dieting when you take it. In the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition” study, participants who took 30 grams of pyruvate, 16 grams of which was calcium pyruvate, were on restricted diets. Pyruvate accounted for 13 percent of the participants’ diets. In the study published in “Nutrition,” which did not find significant effects for pyruvate, participants maintained their normal diets and took 5 grams of calcium pyruvate twice a day.
However, side effects, such as diarrhea, bloating, gas and increased bowel movements have been recorded. For those with heart disease, be sure to get calcium pyruvate, as compounds stabilized with sodium may increase blood pressure to dangerous levels.
