Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a remarkable dietary supplement derived from sources like safflower and sunflower oil, and found naturally in grass fed meats and dairy as well as the yolk of an egg. CLA works to reduce body fat by preventing fat accumulation in fat cells. Fat normally enters the fat cell through a door that is controlled by an enzyme that acts as the key.
By acting on this enzyme, CLA keeps the door locked. When the door is locked, fat utilization by the cell is limited and any new fat cell growth is restricted. The less fat present in the cells, the smaller and less mature they become. This helps to reduce the level of fat in your body. The increased breakdown of fat helps to fuel and preserve muscle mass, which in turn increases lean muscle mass.
Studies show that supplementation with CLA aids in weight management.
Scientists now believe that CLA may have a unique effect on body fat: It inhibits the transport mechanism of fat into fat cells, reducing the size of these cells. Some studies have indicated that this may lead to an improved body composition.
The most fascinating bioactivity of CLA95™ is its effect on the body’s fat to muscle ratio. There is substantial research on CLA showing that it may lead to decreased body fat, while maintaining lean body mass.
