Pyruvate - anyone else use it for weight loss?
I was recently lassoed (sp?) in by my trainer at 24 hour to take supplements in aiding my weight-loss endeavors. Now I've tryed the gamut - from Metabolife to Slimquick and they NEVER work and I don't believe in them. However, I started taking about 6-7grams of Pyruvate/day and after the research I have done I have noticed a bit of weight loss. I am not sure if this is simply becuase I have amped up my workouts and I am "trying" to eat better/well...but after the research I have read I think there is cause to believe Pyruvate in addition to exercise and a low-calorie diet, will aid in shedding poundage.
So...my question is...Does anyone else take Pyruvate? If so/If not, what are your opinions, reactions, insight on this?
Your body produces Pyruvate naturally...but additional Pyruvate is supposed to help the Kreb Cycle and extend your insulin levels so you are burning calories more efficiently throughout the day.
I am currently using Apex Fat Burn 2 - Expenditure (Pyruvate).
