CLA

  • Lose body fat
  • Increase energy levels
  • Preserve lean muscle
  • Improve metabolism

CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a beneficial unsaturated fatty acid naturally present in dairy and meat products. Created in the stomachs of ruminant animals such as cows, one of the most potent natural sources of CLA is beef, with grass-fed livestock producing more than their corn-fed counterparts.1

Clinical research has shown that CLA is associated with loss of body fat.2,3,4 Doses of between 1.8 and 3 grams per day have been shown to reduce body fat in human studies, while preserving lean muscle mass.5 Supplementing with CLA as part of a healthy exercise and nutrition program may increase metabolism and aids fat burning potential, helping to maintain a healthy body weight over the long term. This fatty acid supports lean body mass and healthy adults can benefit from its ability to help regulate cellular energy intake and output, reducing fat composition particularly in the abdominal area.6,7

One study found that participants taking CLA were more likely to avoid seasonal weight gain and fewer of these individuals reported feeling negative emotions during the research period. These findings suggest that CLA can help reduce body fat while supporting a positive mood.8

Ongoing research indicates that CLA helps maintain cellular health and supports proper cell function and division.9,10 Scientists continue to study this nutrient for its effects on human health and there may be additional immune and cardiovascular benefits, including its potential to help support normal blood glucose levels.

As an antioxidant nutrient, CLA is involved with phospholipids in the body. Phospholipids are the major component of cell membranes and the depletion of one such fat, phosphatidylcholine, leads to hardening of cell membranes and is an important part of the aging process.

Animal studies indicate that CLA supports blood vessel health and may help maintain cholesterol levels already within a normal range. Test subjects receiving CLA exhibited healthy levels of triglycerides and LDL, as well as ratios of total cholesterol to HDL.11,12
