Enzymes: Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex is a complex of three enzymes in the mitichondria that change the Amino Acid pyruvate into the molecule acetyl-coa by a process called pyruvate decarboxylation. Acetyl-coa is used in the citric acid cycle to make energy for cells the complex links the metabolic pathway that breaks down glucose (elemental sugar) to the citric acid cycle. ...Read more
None: No supplements will lower creatine kinase which signifies potential muscle breakdown when elevated. In past, we tested CK when we suspected a heart attack. Levels can also be elevated when muscles are damaged (rare condition = rhabdomyolysis).

Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

Creatine.: Creatine in doses of 1000 to 5000mg daily has been shown to increase muscle mass, muscle size and muscle energy stores. Creatine must be taken with lots of water throughout the day, and doses must not exceed 5000mg daily to avoid impairment of kidney function. The dose can be taken all at once, preferably after exercise to facilitate ATP store replenishment in the muscles after exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
