What is it?
Pyruvate is an end product of energy metabolism that our bodies make every day. Pyruvate occurs naturally in many foods including red meat and apples. Pinnacle Pyruvate 1000 contains the calcium, sodium and potassium salts of pyruvic acid (Pyruvate) together with the synergist dihydroxyacetone (DHA). These ingredients are patented for use in weight loss and fat reduction as well as maximizing exercise capacity.
What does it do?
xtensive research has been conducted on Pyruvate for over 25 years and clinical studies have found that Pyruvate can promote 37% greater weight loss and 48% greater fat loss. These results were found in studies which compared subjects who used Pyruvate while following a low-fat diet vs. subjects who didn't use Pyruvate while following a low-fat diet. Pyruvate promotes the loss of fat while preserving lean body mass (muscle tissue).
When a person loses weight, they lose fat, water and lean body tissue (muscle). However, muscle is the fat-burning powerhouse of the body, so a supplement that helps promote fat loss and preserve lean tissue, is ideal since it maintains the natural fat burning capability of the body while achieving the goal of fat and weight loss. While the exact mechanisms of how Pyruvate works is unclear, it seems that the body uses Pyruvate to manipulate fat metabolism through a process of fat oxidation. The net result is significant fat loss.
In separate clinical studies, after resuming a normal diet, subjects taking Pyruvate gained back 55% less body fat than those not taking Pyruvate. In addition to the fat loss benefits, Pyruvate also increases the uptake of protein and the glucose energy supply available to working muscles. Studies at a leading U.S. medical school research center revealed that subjects taking Pyruvate experienced less fatigue during prolonged exercise and were able to increase performance from 20% - 50%. Pinnacle Pyruvate 1000 incorporates a patented Advanced Delivery System to optimize delivery in the body. Through a bioactive process, inulin (a long-chain fructose molecule) is combined with Pyruvate to form a unique blended complex which acts as 'carrier' for the Pyruvate 'cargo' helping to be effectively carried throughout the body and delivered directly into the blood stream. This inulinization also works as an extended release mechanism, keeping target tissues saturated with more consistent levels of Pyruvate and extending benefits (up to 10 hours) long after other supplements have been spent or wasted.
