x.prof 022: stimulation of collagen synthesis - pH 6.0 - 7.0
Pyruvate is a physiological alpha-keto acid that is metabolically at the end of the glycolytic pathway and is transformed into lactate (alpha-hydroxy acid) by the action of lactate dehydrogenase. Pyruvate increases the mitochondrial membrane potential, stimulating cell respiration and, therefore, increasing energy consumption, that results in increased metabolism. It stimulates fibroblastic activity and specifically collagen synthesis.
