Re-energizing the aging brain - Science Daily, 3/17/16 -
"In our new study, we show that long-term dietary
supplementation with pyruvate increases the energy reserves in the brain, at
least in mice, in the form of the molecules glycogen, creatine and lactate
... The mice became more energetic and increased their explorative activity.
It appears that these behavioral changes are directly due to the effect of
pyruvate on brain function, since we didn't find that these mice had
developed greater muscle force or endurance ... The dose necessary to
achieve these effects was about 800 mg pyruvate per day -- which corresponds
to about 10 g per day in humans -- given to the mice in normal chow over a
period of 2.5 to 6 months" - See

review - ConsumerLab.com -
"One of the pyruvate products failed to pass the
review because its labeling did not clearly indicate the amount of pyruvate
in the product and was potentially misleading. The product name included the
words "Pyruvate 1000" but the ingredients indicated that each tablet, in
fact, had 1,000 mg of a pyruvate "complex" — meaning that pyruvate accounted
for an unspecified percentage of the 1,000 mg amount. In fact, testing
showed the product to contain only 240 mg of pyruvate per tablet — less than
one-quarter of what one might have expected"
