Product Details

What is Calcium Pyruvate?

Calcium pyruvate is pyruvic acid combined with the mineral calcium.

Pyruvate is a natural substance made in the body that contributes to metabolism and carbohydrate digestion. Pyruvate (as pyruvate dehyrogenase) is required to start the Krebs cycle (Wikipedia), a process by which the body produces energy from chemical reactions. Natural sources of pyruvate include apples, cheese, dark beer and red wine.

Calcium pyruvate enhances the metabolism of sugar and starches into energy.

As a supplement, calcium pyruvate helps burn fat that is retained or deposited in the body, making it readily available for use as fuel. The additional energy released may help the body function more efficiently and aid in exercise.

Calcium pyruvate enhances the delivery of glucose and protein into muscle cells by increasing the amount of ATP available to the energy engines of cells (mitochondria) and may aid performance levels in exercise.

Purity and Concentration of Calcium Pyruvate

Calcium pyruvate powder contains no fillers, taste additives or anti-caking agents. Store in a cool, dry area protected from light. Reseal after each use.

Potential Side Effects of Calcium Pyruvate

Side effects such as diarrhea, bloating, gas and increased bowel movements have been reported. Those with heart conditions should choose calcium pyruvate over sodium pyruvate. Sodium compounds have a higher likelihood of increasing blood pressure.

Mixing and Solubility of Calcium Pyruvate

This product dissolves quickly in water. Mix with water or citrus juice and drink.
