Conjugated linoleic acid is a fatty acid with a double bond. The name conjugated means that the double bonds have a specific arrangement in the fatty acid molecule. It is a poly saturated fatty acid containing the CIS and TRANS double bonds. It has been said to be a natural TRANS fat. Studies have shown that CLA is healthier than the industrially formulated TRANS fat.
Conjugated linoleic acid is basically a member of the Linoleic fatty acid group. The latter is an omega 6 fatty acid which is easily found in our common diets. Largely found in beef, and some dairy products. Its content in these foods however, depends on how and what the animal was fed with. If the animal was grass-fed, the conjugated linoleic acid in it will be higher than a diet of grains.
According to the CLA weight loss reviews, numerous clients used it to flush out the unwanted fat they were struggling with. Can I tell you how? The conjugated linoleic acid weight loss therapy revealed that a person’s calorie intake is lowered, burning out of calories drastically increased (that is the body now comfortably converts food into energy), the breakdown of fat is highly stimulated and there is inhibition of the production of fat which all amount to one possessing a lesser amount of fat! This thereby improves body composition and increase muscle mass and strength.
I have been taking CLA faithfully for 4 months now and started seeing results almost instantly. I was 172 pounds when I started and shot down to 140 within that time frame. I have a small frame so 140 looks fantastic on me. Truthfully, I haven’t been working out but I have been sticking to a 1200 calorie diet (not to say I haven’t allowed myself a few cheat days). If you’re seriously considering CLA I would definitely recommend giving it a shot. Make sure you take it with food when you start it otherwise you’ll feel nauseous.
