    Before my fibro/cf I took it for weight loss. It made me nauseous if I took it on an empty stomach. I had more stamina when exercising while taking it. I could exercise harder and longer. I didn't keep it up, though. Maybe I should start taking it again.
    I would like to see an update how others are doing also.

    I used to have to sleep 10-12 hours each night/day just to get by. Now I'm sleeping eight and doing well.

    I'm taking 4-6 caps a day, and my life is really turning around.

    I'm taking a slew of other supplements and 3 prescriptions, too, so I have a nice "base" of things that were already helpings somewhat. For me, Calcium Pyruvate was the ~big~ improvement I needed to have some energy and strength in my life.

    I'm also lucky enough to experience pain relief from the product. For some reason, it's works even better than Aleve. I'm not getting the day-in-day-out achiness anymore. And this cold weather (snowy) has barely caused any pain at all. I thought I'd be bed-ridden by now.

    I have experienced no weight loss (that wasn't my goal, I just wanted energy/strength,) but I haven't gained either. Considering I'm taking Elavil and craving sweets round the clock, that's good :).

    There's more info in the "My Father Bought me Calcium Pyruvate..." thread that I started. Hope it works for you, too :).
