Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)


CLA is the Most Effective, Yet Overlooked Fat Loss Supplement

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, also known as CLA, is often overlooked as a quality fat-loss supplement. In the last twenty years it has been shown to significantly shift body composition, resulting in burning more belly fat and increasing muscle mass.

How It Burns Fat

CLA promotes fat burning by improving food intake effectiveness. Basically, it lowers body fat by enhancing insulin sensitivity so that fatty acids and glucose can pass through muscle cell membranes, away from fat stores. Research suggest that CLA’s fat loss effects are due to its capability to control the metabolic process by preventing fat uptake and increasing the pace of fat burning.

Eva Selhub, MD at states, “Recent human studies have shown that taking CLA, at least 3.4 grams a day, led to a significant decrease in body fat mass and the diameter of the abdomen in obese subjects, but not body weight.”

How You Should Receive It

Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a naturally occurring nutrient normally present in tiny amounts in milk, cheese, turkey, lamb, and beef. As a result of our food supply’s nutrient decline, the typical person’s general diet is below quality. Most people consume far less CLA than we did two decades ago. A lot of experts view today’s spike in weight gain is connected to the dramatic CLA decline in the food supply. Since most people lack this important dietary fat, supplementation is necessary to get the fat loss benefits.

How You Should Supplement

By supplementing your diet with CLA you can better your immune systems chemical reaction, decrease belly fat, lower total body fat, decrease cholesterol, and build muscle mass. An added perk to supplementing is that you won’t gain fat back as easily because it inhibits fat cell division or mitosis.

Most researchers agree 3 grams split up into 3 dosages daily in addition to meals is essential for fat burning. Nonetheless, the REAL SECRET to taking CLA is that it must be taken over a long period of time, six months or more to prove the most significant fat burning outcome. CLA will continue providing body re-composition results as long as it’s taken continually. A lot of reports will suggest to you that you take a mere 3-4 grams every day to get desirable fat loss results. Yet, the most successful supplemental dose is around 5-7 grams every day. Most people can lower their body fat nearly 10% just by supplementing with a good dose for a year.

End result… it’s by no means a magic pill, nevertheless it does some incredible things!
