Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) omega-6 essential fatty acid (EFA) greatly supports weight management. Omega-6 EFAs are essential to human health and a healthy metabolism. Clinical studies show that CLA safely decreases body fat by increasing how fast body fat is broken down in fat cells, especially during sleep. CLA increases the rate of fat oxidation and decreases fat cells in the body, while preserving muscle tissue. Without CLA, many aspects of our metabolism fail to operate efficiently. CLA may help glucose get into muscle cells more effectively, thus preventing glucose from being converted into fat. It also helps fats enter the cell membranes of muscle and connective tissue, where the fat is burned for fuel.
CLA is found mainly in beef, cheese, milk, and other dairy foods. Getting enough CLA from your diet for the beneficial effects would require considerable intake of these types of foods. This would be very impractical and could pose a negative effect on one's metabolism due to the high saturated fat and calorie content of meat and dairy. Through advanced lipid technology, CLA can now be produced from linoleic acid in safflower oil. Pure Advantage now offers CLA in a convenient, efficient and economical form for maximum benefit.
CLA has been the subject of a variety of research in the past several years. CLA was recently recommended on the Dr. Oz show as effective in weight management, reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle.
