NOW® CLA 800mg
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a class of fatty acids produced by animals that is naturally found in beef and dairy products. Although CLA plays an important role in a number of cellular metabolic processes, humans are not able to produce CLA and therefore can only obtain it from the diet.*
Why Is CLA Good?
It might seem weird that a fatty acid could help reduce body fat while increasing lean muscle mass, but that's what the science suggests!3
While technically a trans fat, CLA is naturally represented in our food sources and is different than industrial-produced trans fats, such as vegetable oil. Like many naturally occurring agents, CLA has an organic, meaningful place in our diet.
Can CLA Help Me Lose Weight?
Even though conjugated linoleic acid is a trans fat, there's a purpose for this one! Specifically, CLA helps reduce the urge for unneeded food intake and inhibits the production of additional fats. Basically, CLA is a special type of fat that takes the place of our need for other, unhealthy fats.
CLA hardwires us to stay lean and clean, helping us to burn the calories that already exist, instead of craving additional calories that serve no purpose.
A recent study investigating the effect of 4.2 grams of CLA per day in 53 healthy individuals showed a significant decrease (3.8 percent) in body fat compared with individuals not taking CLA.
An additional study in obese and overweight populations demonstrated that at least 3.4 grams of CLA per day for a period of 12 weeks was actually necessary
to see a significant reduction in body fat.2 In other words, without CLA intake there was no significant fat loss!
