How to Use It
Most human research with pyruvate and weight loss has used at least 30 grams per day. However, such large amounts may not be necessary. In a six-week double-blind trial, as little as 6 grams per day of pyruvate in combination with exercise, led to greater weight loss and loss of body fat, compared with a placebo plus exercise.25
Where to Find It
Because it is not an essential nutrient, pyruvate is not associated with a deficiency state.
