Calcium Pyruvate is an ionic salt pyruvic acid combined with the essential mineral, Calcium. Calcium Pyruvate supplies calcium, the most abundant mineral in the human body and a vital component of healthy metabolic function. In the body, Calcium acts as a cell signalling messenger and serves many functions in neurological processes. In addition, Calcium is a component of many structural proteins such as bone and cartilage.
Pyruvate is an organic acid made in the body that contributes to metabolism and carbohydrate digestion. Pyruvate is considerable importance as an intermediate in glycolysis and the Citric Acid Cycle, both processes that produce usable energy for the human body. Pyruvate is also active in gluconeogenesis, a process that generates glucose for neural tissue.
Supplementation of Calcium and pyruvic acid may help support healthy bone structure, as well as neurological and metabolic function.

Because calcium pyruvate is 15 percent elemental calcium, a 2000 mg serving will yield 300 milligrams of elemental calcium. The FDA recommends a Daily Value(DV) of 1000 mg calcium (for adults and children over 4 years of age). Thus, you will be getting 30% of the Daily Value per serving.
