Featured Article ~ Is Pyruvate an Effective Fat Burner?

There is a lot of hype in the muscle media about pyruvate being a good fat-burner. There is, in fact, much science on its use, the vast majority of which is being published by Dr. Stanko (who also happens to hold the patent on pyruvate). I wonder how unbiased his studies are. In practical doses, pyruvate is just not cost-effective to use. Yes, the stuff does work, to some extent but in nearly every study involving pyruvate the dosages were in the range of 30 grams per day. Most products recommend only 2000 to 3000mg of pyruvate daily, just not enough to have any sort of fat-burning effect.

Besides being too expensive to use, pyruvate in capsule or powder form quickly becomes deactivated, rendering the majority of a dosage ineffective. Pyruvate degrades to a point where it is virtually useless. Also keep in mind that the pyruvate used in scientific studies is of a much higher quality than you get in most supplements. Pyruvate is expensive to make and sell so some manufacturers try to cut costs by using a lower-grade type of pyruvate. Several companies have actually had to recall their cheap pyruvate off the store shelves due to pyruvate's poor stability. I cannot give pyruvate a thumbs up.
