Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) refers to a group of chemicals found in the fatty acid linoleic acid. There are a number of health benefits given by CLA
Weight Loss Management
When used together with diet and exercise, CLA not only supports healthy body fat levels but also t in the muscle strength and exercise endurance.
And this claim has been backed by numerous studies and science.
CLA has also been embraced and advocated by nutrition and natural-weight-loss gurus, including Ann Louise Gittleman, a registered nutritionist and author of the bestselling book, The Fat Flush Plan. (McGraw-Hill Trade, 2001). She cites CLA's fat-burning capacity as well as its tendency to help the body to translate weight gains into lean muscle. In Phase 3 (the maintenance phase) of the Fat Flush diet plan, she recommends taking 1,000 mg of CLA before meals, three times a day.
CLA reduces body fat by increasing basal metabolic rates, effectively burning more fats. In other words, it helps the body convert food more efficiently into energy.
