What is Calcium Pyruvate and Why Do You Need It?

You may have heard of it in your high school science class but maybe you need a refresher. So what is Calcium Pyruvate? The short answer is that Pyruvate is something that your body naturally produces to help break down glucose, also known as sugar, and starches in the body and converts them to energy. When it’s combined with the stability of calcium, you have one powerful fat burner. The body burns fat through a process called the Kreb Cycle.

The Benefits of Calcium Pyruvate

Pyruvate is the foundation for the Kreb Cycle. The more pyruvate that is in the body, the faster the Kreb Cycle will work. Once the glucose and starches are broken down, the converted energy acts as a stimulant to shed excess fat. Pyruvate has been proven in clinical research to boost your metabolism and decrease your body weight when taken regularly. Taking the supplement enhances the effectiveness of what is already in your body and also aids in energy maintenance.

Calcium Pyruvate is already naturally present in many of the foods we eat such as apples and cheese. It’s also in some of our drinks like red wine and dark beer. However, it is naturally generated in such small quantities that it’s not a practical source for weight loss. For instance, you would need to eat 70 apples in order to obtain 5 measly grams of Calcium Pyruvate. 

That’s why the Calcium Pyruvate supplement, in addition to proper nutrition and exercise, is essential in helping increase and accelerate the fat loss process. This will help you to reduce your body’s ability to store those stubborn, unwanted extra pounds.

Calcium Pyruvate for Weight Loss

This is the fat burning supplement that you’ve been waiting for. When it’s combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise you’ll achieve optimal results. Athletes, in particular, find Calcium Pyruvate beneficial because of its ability to help build muscle, provide sustained energy, and helps fight fatigue. Because Pyruvate plays a crucial role in energy production by facilitating the transport of glucose from the bloodstream into the muscles, it makes it a popular supplement with fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders.

It has been shown to work extremely well with a diet containing lean meats and healthy carbohydrates, such as vegetables and fruits. We also recommend engaging in some sort of physical activity at least three times a week for thirty minutes to maximize results.

Overall, Calcium Pyruvate:

  • Boosts your metabolism and increases your energy levels*
  • Breaks down the body’s fat and uses it as an energy source*
  • Helps retention of muscle building*
  • Contributes to the digestion of carbohydrates and antioxidant activity
  • Works best for people who are at least moderately active – 30 minutes of exercise (brisk walking counts) a minimum of 3 times per week.

There are several weight loss benefits such as boosting fat burning, increasing the amount of energy produced, and accelerating your desired weight loss while also preventing fat production and increasing muscle.

Neurotransmitters and Their Functions

Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals in which the brain communicates throughout the body. They tell your body to perform all the functions that it performs such as breathing, digestion, and even your heartbeat. Often when you have decreased motivation and energy, low libido, sleep problems, decreased or increased appetite, mental illness or attention problems it is because your neurotransmitters are imbalanced. Keep reading to learn more about the types of neurotransmitters and their functions.

Types of Neurotransmitters:

  • Amino acids: glutamate, aspartate, D-serine, γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA),[nb 1] glycine
  • Gasotransmitters: nitric oxide (NO), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen sulfide (H2S)
  • Monoamines: dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (noradrenaline; NE, NA), epinephrine (adrenaline), histamine, serotonin (SER, 5-HT)
  • Trace amines: phenethylamine, N-methylphenethylamine, tyramine, 3-iodothyronamine, octopamine, tryptamine, etc.
  • Peptides: oxytocin, somatostatin, substance P, cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript, opioid peptides
  • Purines: adenosine triphosphate (ATP), adenosine
  • Catecholamines: dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), epinephrine (adrenaline)
  • Other: acetylcholine (ACh), anandamide, etc.

These transmitters can be divided into two categories inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters.

Neurotransmitters and Their Functions

The inhibitory neurotransmitters help balance mood. These transmitters can be overburdened when the excitatory transmitters are too high. Serotonin, for instance, helps to balance the excessive excitatory neurotransmitters and also plays a role in sleeping, pain, digestion, and even regulates cravings for carbohydrates. Additional inhibitory neurotransmitters are GABA and Dopamine. 

The excitatory neurotransmitters are dopamine which is also an inhibitory and norepinephrine. Dopamine helps you to focus and stay on task. Additionally, dopamine is responsible for your desire to get stuff done. Stimulants such as caffeine cause this to be improved however too much stimulation over time will cause depletion and defeat the purpose. Norepinephrine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that helps to make epinephrine the last excitatory neurotransmitters. The epinephrine regulates the heart rate and blood pressure and can be highly affected by stress which can deplete the levels. If you feel that you may have signs of off-balanced neurotransmitters contact a doctor today and get tested.
