The Ultimate Complex Carbohydrate. The Body's #1 Muscle Energy Fuel: New Cytocarb 2 is the pure carbohydrate powder that does more than increase performance and recovery. Cytocarb 2 Is also designed to promote anabolic status and muscle growth. More than yesterday's energy powders, Cytocarb 2 is a powerful nutritional tool for customizing carbohydrate intake to meet specific goals. Peak Performance: Cytocarb 2 helps improve performance and endurance. By maintaining muscle glycogen, Cytocarb 2 helps produce muscle ATP to fuel longer, harder workouts. Cytocarb 2 helps keep muscle glycogen at peak levels to extend performance and endurance. Enhance Recovery: Cytocarb 2 is anti-catabolic. It helps stop muscle breakdown after workouts. Taking Cytocarb 2 within the "Golden Hour" after workouts super-recharges critical muscle glycogen, and kick-starts the body into favorable nitrogen retention. Promote Hypertrophy: Cytocarb 2 is pro-anabolic. It helps facilitate the uptake of amino acids into hungry muscle, leading to muscle growth (hypertrophy). This volumizing and "force-feeding" of amino acids helps trigger the bottom line to muscle growth and repair-protein synthesis. Customized Nutrition: Cytocarb 2 enables you to customize shakes and juices to double, even triple, the carbohydrate content. Sometimes, you need more carbs to achieve your goals. Cytocarb 2 is the perfect tool to increase carb intake for harder workouts and faster recovery. All Thriller, No Fillers: Cytocarb 2 is pure, 100% natural complex carbohydrates. With zero fat, low sodium, no flavoring, colorings or additives, 2 is all thriller, with no filler. It's the purest, cleanest carbohydrate powder. Easy To Use: Cytocarb 2 dissolves instantly in water. No clumping like others, and no blender needed. Cytocarb 2 is tasteless, so you get added carbohydrates without added sweetness. You won't know Cytocarb 2 is in your drink, but your muscles will next workout.

Pyruvate for Sports & Fitness

Pyruvate

Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that pyruvate helps them lose body fat and also helps boost metabolism and increase endurance.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Pyruvate appears to promote weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate. There is good research based on human studies showing that pyruvate helps to promote weight loss in overweight people on low-fat diets.

Although pyruvate promotes weight loss, which is good for heart health, it is important to monitor cholesterol levels as it may reduce HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?

Three controlled studies of untrained individuals using a combination of 6 to 10 grams per day of pyruvate and an exercise program reported greater effects on weight loss and body fat compared with those taking a placebo with the exercise program.1, 2, 3 However, controlled studies of the effects of pyruvate supplementation on exercise performance have tested only trained athletes, and these athletes did not experience improvements from pyruvate supplementation. Seven grams per day did not improve aerobic exercise performance in cyclists,4 and an average of 15 grams per day did not improve anaerobic performance or body composition in football players.5

*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
