CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a naturally occurring essential fatty acid of the Omega 6 family, that is present in certain food types such as beef, cheese, eggs and mushrooms, as well as seafood and vegetable oils. With proposed benefits of weight loss support, blood sugar regulation and muscle loss prevention, CLA is a product to add in to any weight regime. Additionally CLA may also promote muscle growth, support healthy joints and will keep you energized and ready to train.
CLA can help promote fat loss, thanks to its ability to reduce the absorption of lipids in fat cells and, in turn, stimulate and speed up your metabolism. This leads to the breakdown of fat in the mitochondria and its use as an energy source.
In addition, it favors the reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides, and offers positive effects in diabetes treatments, since it activates insulin sensitivity. It can also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
