Pyruvate for Weight Control
Why Do Dieters Use It?*
Some dieters say that pyruvate helps them lose inches and also boosts metabolism and improves energy levels.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Pyruvate appears to promote weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate. There is good research based on human studies showing that pyruvate helps to promote weight loss in overweight people on low-fat diets.
Although pyruvate promotes weight loss, which is good for heart health, it is important to monitor cholesterol levels as it may reduce HDL (“good”) cholesterol.
