CLA Supplement – Conjugated Linoleic Acid to Help with Weight Control
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is essential for transporting fats in cells, where they are used to produce energy, now in supplement form available to buy at SuperSmart.
Why Take CLA?
With changes in the way livestock are reared – they are increasingly grain-fed rather than grass-fed – meat and milk now contain three times less Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) than before. CLA supplementation is therefore necessary to reduce age-related protein damage and also plays an active role in preventing several forms of cancer.
What Benefits do Studies Show About CLA?
Animal research, backed up by recent human studies, have shown that CLA supplementation may have benefits for suppressing the appetite and reducing body fat mass while maintaining lean muscle mass.
In one animal study, supplemented mice lost up to 60% of their body fat and gained 14% of lean body mass.
A human study published in August 2001 in the International Journal of Obesity reported a significant reduction in abdominal fat after four weeks' supplementation with 4.2 grams CLA a day. A more recent study suggests this success might be due to a reduction in the size of adipocytes, and perhaps – when combined with a moderate intake of caffeine – a reduction in their number too.
