Background : Several slimming aids being sold as food supplements are widely available. One of them is pyruvate. Its efficacy in causing weight reduction in humans has not been fully established. The objective of this systematic review was to examine the efficacy of pyruvate in reducing body weight. Methods: Electronic and nonelectronic searches were conducted to identify all relevant human randomized clinical trials. The bibliographies of all located articles were also searched. No… Expand
Nutritionist and obesity: brief overview on efficacy, safety, and drug interactions of the main weight-loss dietary supplements
TLDR
The aim of this review was to provide a synthetic, evidence-based report on efficacy and safety of the most commonly used ingredients in dietary supplements marketed for weight loss, particularly focusing on their possible drug interactions. Expand
A Literature Review on Nutritional Supplements for the Treatment of Obesity
TLDR
This manuscript outlines the most commonly used nutritional supplements currently marketed for weight loss, reviewing the evidence with a focus on the efficacy and safety of these products. Expand
The bioavailability of calcium in the form of pyruvate, carbonate, citrate–malate in healthy postmenopausal women
TLDR
CaPyr demonstrates both a promising source of Ca and a potential for use in osteoporosis prevention and further investigations should focus on the long-term dietary effects of CaPyr supplementation to assess its safety and potential beneficial effect on human Ca turnover. Expand
Current Evidence to Propose Different Food Supplements for Weight Loss: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
A combination of supplements most supported by current evidence is proposed, that leverages all mechanisms of action possibly leading to a synergistic effect and greater weight loss in the foreseen absence of adverse events. Expand
IOC consensus statement: dietary supplements and the high-performance athlete
TLDR
The appropriate use of some supplements can benefit the athlete, but others may harm the athlete’s health, performance, and/or livelihood and reputation and expert professional opinion and assistance is strongly advised before an athlete embarks on supplement use. Expand
IOC Consensus Statement: Dietary Supplements and the High-Performance Athlete.
TLDR
Protection of the athlete's health and awareness of the potential for harm must be paramount, and expert professional opinion and assistance is strongly advised before embarking on supplement use. Expand
Pyruvate attenuate lipid metabolic disorders and insulin resistance in obesity induced in rats
This study was designed to evaluate the effect of prolonged intake of Pyruvate on insulin resistance, leptin and lipid metabolism in obesity -induced in female rats by feeding high fat diet. FiftyExpand
Creatine and creatine forms intended for sports nutrition
TLDR
Considering an acceptable creatine intake of 3 g per day, most of the evaluated creatine forms are unlikely to pose safety concerns, however some safety concerns regarding a supplementary intake of creatine orotate, creatine phosphate, and magnesium creatine chelate are discussed here. Expand
Effects of physical characteristics of carbon black on metabolic regulation in mice.
TLDR
Results provide the first evidence of a link between pulmonary exposure to CB and metabolism, and suggest that physical characteristics of CB, such as the zeta potential, may disrupt metabolism after pulmonary exposure. Expand
Physiological process of fat loss
TLDR
The human body can act as a fat-burning machine by depending on low-calorie foods instead of high-Calorie foods in addition to doing regular exercise, avoiding toxins and processed food, and applying any fat flush dietary program under the approval of a professional doctor. Expand

The effects of pyruvate supplementation on body composition in overweight individuals.
TLDR
The ingestion of 6 g of pyruvate for 6 wk, in conjunction with mild physical activity, resulted in a significant decrease in body weight and fat mass. Expand
EFFECT OF PYRUVATE SUPPLEMENTATION ON BODY COMPOSITION AND MOOD
TLDR
The ingestion of pyruvate 6 g/d for 6 weeks, along with regular exercise, can reduce body fat, increase lean body mass, and improve fatigue and vigor scores. Expand
Effects of calcium pyruvate supplementation during training on body composition, exercise capacity, and metabolic responses to exercise.
TLDR
Results indicate that PYR supplementation during training does not significantly affect body composition or exercise performance and may negatively affect some blood lipid levels. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that 3-carbon compounds decrease weight gain and reaccumulation of body fat, without decreasing body protein gain, in obese subjects with hyperenergetic refeeding subsequent to weight loss. Expand

TLDR
Current treatment options include behavior modification and lifestyle changes which incorporate weight-reducing diets and physical activity, FDA approved long-term anti-obesity pharmacological agents sibutramine and orlistat, non-FDA approved over-the-counter (OTC) supplements and nutriceuticals, and, when appropriate, bariatric surgery.

TLDR
Creatine and the combination supplement enhanced training adaptations associated with body mass/composition, maximum strength, and SVJ; however, pyruvate supplementation alone was ineffective. Expand
