Nature's Sunshine Products
Joins NSP's Body-Shaping Team
Supports the Body's Energy and Endurance Levels.

With evidence mounting regarding the dangers of certain prescription diet pills, people are realizing that some synthetic solutions are worse than the problem. Doctors, along with the pharmaceutical industry, have been forced to admit that these pills pose risks that often exceed the dangers associated with excess weight.

With the approach of the holidays and the seasonal treats they bring with them, that's bad news. But here's good news: There's a safe, effective approach to getting and staying in shape thanks to Nature's Sunshine and the amazing new supplement called Pyruvate-800!

Pyruvate, or pyruvic acid, is a normal constituent of human metabolism. Although Pyruvate occurs naturally in foods such as red apples, certain cheeses and red wine, most people don't get much of it from their diets.

By supporting the body's energy and endurance levels, Pyruvate-800 complements NSP's popular and effective Body Right weight-management products, including Chinese Fen-Chi, Chinese Thermo-Chi, Garcinia-Chi and Fat Grabbers. Coupled with exercise and good-eating habits, Pyruvate-800 offers powerful body-shaping support.

All Natural
The process of burning calories and producing energy occurs at the body's cellular level every moment of our lives. Unfortunately, this process does not always occur at the rate and efficiency levels we might like.

Pyruvate supplementation, however, improves the body's ability to metabolize carbohydrates in the mitochondria and move glucose from the bloodstream into the muscle cells, a process known as "glucose extraction." Improved use of bloodstream glucose means increased availability of high-octane fuel for the body. Increased fuel, in turn, results in increased support and maintenance of activity and exercise levels and generates increased physical endurance, calorie consumption and lean muscle.

Studies have shown that 4-6 grams of pyruvate supplementation a day safely and significantly increases muscular endurance and lean body mass without the unwanted side effects of stimulants like caffeine. Studies have also shown that pyruvate supports increased metabolism and greater fat utilization.

Because increased endurance and metabolism leads to increased lean muscle mass and reduced body fat, Pyruvate-800 is an attractive product for those who are serious about shaping their bodies for peak physical performance. Combined with adequate exercise and good eating habits, Pyruvate-800 offers long-term success in the battle of looking and feeling better.

Unique Ingredients
NSP's Pyruvate-800 is unique because we augment its benefits by combining it with a high-powered, accurately standardized extract of Fructus aurantia immature, or immature bitter orange peel. Orange peel, long used in Chinese medicine, is a natural source of synephrine.

Natural synephrine has been shown to improve coronary circulation and cerebral blood flow. As a thermogenic agent, synephrine supports the burning of calories and the utilizing of fat stores in the body. Its benefits are similar to those of ephedrine, although it has none of ephedrine's typical side effects. But as a precautionary measure, we recommend that you consult a health care provider prior to taking Pyruvate-800 if you are pregnant or nursing, suffering from a medical condition or taking any prescription drug.

Nature's Sunshine combines its Pyruvate with calcium to produce "calcium pyruvate." The healthful bonus of calcium supplementation has been shown to delay or prevent the onset of osteoporosis.

NSP's Pyruvate-800 formula also includes Garcinia cambogia fruit concentrated to 50 percent hydroxycitric acid, its key ingredient. Many exciting studies using garcinia have produced encouraging results in the area of weight management.

"Our Pyruvate is the only product in the world that combines the effectiveness of Pyruvate, natural synephrine and Garcinia cambogia," said Dr. Alvin B. Segelman, NSP Vice President of Health Sciences.

Daily Nutrition
Each NSP Pyruvate-800 tablet contains 800 mg of calcium Pyruvate, 50 mg of synephrine extract, plus concentrated Garcinia cambogia fruit. We recommend that you take three tablets twice daily with meals. Six tablets provide 4.8 grams of calcium Pyruvate and 96 percent of the recommended daily allowance of calcium.

With Pyruvate-800, there's no need to put off your New Year's resolution to get in shape. So why wait? Try Pyruvate-800 and feel great!
