Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Pyruvate
These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.
Question: Is there any substance to the claims by the manufacturer of Pyruvate that it can aid in reducing fat and increase lean muscle mass? I exercise and eat a balanced diet, but an edge in reducing fat would be great. The problem seems that, as with most supplements on the market, it sounds too good to be true.
