: : : : Thanx John, what do you mean by busting your gut? severe pain? or just indigestion? Is it worth buying and trying? Thanx man!
: : : : what do you think about the c/a/e stack?
: : : : : Well,pyruvateis used in the energy cycles of the body as pyruvic acid.So the theory is that because 80% of calories burned at rest come from fat if pyruvate is ingested in larger than normal quantities that an enhancement in burning of stored b/f will take place.I have used it but only for a few days as it really busted up my gut,which is one of the side effects.

: : : I have been using pyruvate for as long as MedPro (ie ripoff pro) has had it available. I have seen my aerobic/endurance workouts increase substantially this year and my bodyfat/weight are much lower than they usually are at this time of the year (it's f***ing freezing here half the time...my body wants that damn fat for insulation!). The problem is that a bottle of MedPro's product is $49 for about a two week supply (you need to take at least five grams of the product). Right now Prolab has a pyruvate product out called Provate One which is pyruvate along with some thermogenics (I don't have a bottle in front of me so I can't tell you exactly what's in it). They also have a product called Provate Two which is pyruvate along with l-carnitine, HCA, Chromium, and vanadyl. This is the one I am considering using since I don't respond very well to thermogenics like the E/C/A stack (it works well but I get too damn wired). I think both of these things can be bought for around $24.00 (?) from Elite Athlete in Oregon. I can get more info if you're interested but you know, as soon as Unique/Mass Supplements has pyurvate in bulk that's the only place I'd buy it. Sorry for rambling, hope this helps.
: : BTW: I found that when I first started taking pyruvate, I had to race to the bathroom on occasion. After awhile, even at doses above five grams, I never found that I got an upset stomach. Apparently the stuff is remarkably safe at very high doses. Wait until Unique has it in bulk then you'll be able to use it at high enough doses to really see a difference without getting ripped off.
: Most of the studies involving pyruvate used mega doses
