CLA promotes natural fat metabolism to make it easier to get your body in shape. Several studies investigating the effects of CLA on weight management and body composition confirm this. Studies show that supplementation with CLA aids in weight management by promoting fat loss. When weight is gained, or regained after a diet, CLA has been found to promote muscle growth as well as to inhibit the growth of fat cells improving the shape of the body.
This comprehensive formula promotes a healthy body composition, cardiovascular system, and gut microbiome. CLA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid found in certain animal food products like beef, lamb, goat, buffalo, and dairy or derived from linoleic acid-rich oils such as safflower oil. However, grass-fed animals produce more CLA than grain-fed animals. Therefore, supplementation may be necessary for individuals without access to grass-fed meat and dairy products or with limited protein intake. CLA plays a crucial role in fat metabolism by promoting the body’s ability to use fat for energy and encourage normal fat storage in the human body. It may also help promote energy metabolism and expenditure to support healthy body weight, fat mass, body mass index, and waist-to-hip ratio in overweight or obese adults. CLA may also help overweight adults preserve muscle mass while supporting a healthy weight.
Additionally, CLA promotes a healthy, diverse gut microbiome and supports sports performance, bone health, normal appetite, antioxidant status, and normal blood sugar and cholesterol metabolism.
CLA may have an unique effect on body fat by:
- Inhibiting the transport mechanism of fat into fat cells. This way the size of these cells is reduced, which may lead to an improved body shape.
- Enhancing the activity of an enzyme present in the muscles. By stimulating this enzyme, it helps the body to build up more muscle mass.
