How Pyruvate Improve Endurance Performance

Pyruvate is the end product of glycolysis. When individuals are supplemented with pyruvate, the Krebs cycle has been speculated to perform more efficiently. This would lead to an increased rate of ATP production, therefore improving endurance performance. Also, studies performed on rats have shown that supplementation with pyruvate lowers the animals’ respiratory exchange ratio This […]

Effect of Enterostatin

A peptide that acts similar to Cyclo (His-Pro) is enterostatin. Enterostatin is a pentapeptide that has been shown to be selective in inhibiting fat intake. It is formed following the cleavage of the enzyme procolipase by trypsin in the gastric juice of the intestinal lumen. Procolipase is an enzyme essential for fat digestion. Following the […]
