Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Give a Boost To Your Energy I've known about the benefits of Calcium Pyruvate for some time and can actually notice when I am taking it. My overall energy throughout the day is higher and sustained with it, therefore I am more active, and burn more calories. I always try to use the Ultra formulas to get the maximum benefits. If your 'tail is dragging a bit', try this caffeine free way and see if it helps you. January 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Has potential I used this product in the morning with my smoothies for the first couple of months. I combined so many things into my smoothies, I couldn't tell if the Calcium Pyruvate was having any effects on my energy levels. I recently started taking this supplement in the early afternoon around half an hour after lunch. I do find a noticeable boost in energy soon after taking the capsule. This is purely anecdotal but it may give you a place to start with regard to timing of administration. By the way I do not take stimulants of any kind so, I can say that I am sensitive to any input from supplements. August 30, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by doesn't work Tried it many times for energy and to help loose weight and it didn't do either. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan I have lost 50 lbs, with 70 to go, this seems to help me loose weight as it seems to make me less stressful, helping me control over eating November 21, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by didn't help me not saying anything is wrong with this product, it just didn't help me, didn't see any extra energery and didn't see it help me on my weight loss journey. August 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best price Very good product I take it every day August 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It really delivers! After reading about this supplement, I decided to give this product a try, and I am so glad that I did! It really gives me a noticeable boost before my workout, and has significantly helped my weight loss. This will be a regular purchase from now on for me. Thanks Swanson! June 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Might work for others This product gave me such chronic belly cramps whenever I took it I couldn't stay with it long enough to find out if it worked. And I have a cast-iron digestion. I get all the energy I need now from coconut oil. May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Energy To Last A Life Time I go to school and work so i am tired all the time. i looked for a healthy way to gain my energy back and this was the way i did it. April 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Energy I cleaned my whole big house top to bottom when I started taking this. Couldn't stop, I had so much energy! April 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I teach group fitness classes, sometimes a few a day, and I need a boost to keep me energetic. This is a great natural supplement that has really helped me keep my energy levels up for all of my classes. March 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Product Thank you for producing this amazing product! Definitely appears helpful for weight loss! I have tried many many supplements for energy and weight loss. This, along with a healthy lifestyle, helps without the jitteriness of caffeine. March 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good stimulant It helps to energize me at work-the body and mind. I"ll probably keep taking this. March 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This willl Crank your Tractor! This has soooo much given me high energy for an entire day as I work around the house and outside. I enjoy being a 60 y/o housewife and want to be known for taking care of everything around my home. It works greater than any diet pill that claims it'll give you energy. This truly does without losing focus and w/o making you shaky. I bought several bottles to have on hand as a reminder to not forget to reorder. October 8, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Carb Burner Unable to tolerate the irritating effects of Alpha Lipoic Acid, i fing this product a nice substitue for the burning of carbs. August 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by combo energy enhancer Calcium pyruvate in combination with NADH really gives you a good boost of energy, especially with proper nutrition. October 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looking forward to results Calcium Pyruvate was recommended to be by a friend. It helps curb my appetite just enough. I hope it keeps up the good work. Thanks, August 17, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great energetic living I feel the wave of energy, few minutes right after taking one pill. It is good for working out and for the night works. July 23, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps you going not only is it a great deal for the product, its a good quality product. I take it before my workouts and I definitely notice the effects of it--I definitely will continue to use this July 22, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by I feel a real difference with this product. I never review supplements - not that I don't believe in them; I do. It's just that I think of their effect as long-term and subtle. But this product really gives me endurance and energy - so much so that I don't take it at night, for fear that it might keep me from sleeping. Excellent product. April 11, 2009
Rated 1 out of 5 by I got sick on this. Would not take it again January 23, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by I liked it this product; overall I experienced more energy and more body heat. I am in a weight loss program and I take fatburners to help me get rid of fat. Overall is a good product! May 31, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value Calcium Pyruvate Energy Enhancer helps me get through the day without making me jittery. I've been able to maintain my ideal weight and my wife is shocked by how I can get done around the house\yard even after a 10 hr work day. May 3, 2008
