I am from CO. I wish to know if Pyruvate is available for purchase yet? If so where can it be purchased.: : : I think I remember reading some studies done on
: : : pyruvate all of which used 20-40 GRAMS (not mg).
: : : Is this correct? If so, has there been any studies
: : : using the 5 gram recommended dosage? If so, I cant
: : : find it. Why are some "experts" recommending 5
: : : grams? If it really should be more like 20-40
: : : grams, what would the cost be at that dosage?
: : I'm going to have to defer to Unique on this one, I really don't know that much about this substance.
: : -- 3-4-5
: According to articles i've read on these studies, they all used 20-40gmwith low caloric intake(1000-1600kcal). There have been no studies using the recommended dose of 5g, which is based on dose-response curves from the animal studies. I believe they recommed the 5g dose for cost costing, since the 20-40g doses will cost about $6-14/day. Also a note, it's suggested to take zinc and b5 with the pyruvate to help metabolism and convert the pyruvate. Hope this sheds some light. TEX
