Conjugated linoleic acids are a family of 28 isomers of linoleic acid found mostly in the meat and dairy products derived from ruminants. One of the most popular and widely used supplements within the sports nutrition and health industry, CLA is a naturally occurring omega-6 fatty acid, which play a fundamental role in human health.
But what are the benefits of taking this popular supplement? Here at Myvitamins, we investigate further…
CLA, or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is quickly flying off the shelves for its speculated connection to weight loss.
It has been proposed that CLA can not only help boost weight loss, but actively decrease body fat through a series of biochemical reactions that increase metabolism – phew – our heart rate’s going just thinking about it!
Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t actually magically decrease overall body weight bur rather alters the body fat to muscle ratio and increases the rate at which you use your energy!
As if all of that wasn’t enough, it may even keep your ticker in tip-top condition! The properties of CLA ensure that all that stored fat we have is used as efficiently as possible (as energy!) and so prevents the build-up of plaque and lipids in the arteries (a key factor linked to heart disease.) What’s more, it may also help prevent heart disease by acting as an antioxidant – not only this, but by lowering blood pressure too!
