CLA: Speed Up Metabolism, Slow Down Weight Gain

Looking to make an addition to your dietary supplement line? You’ve come to the right place! The effectiveness of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), has been scientifically proven since the 1980s. Among the most research cited is a Norwegian study published in The Journal of Nutrition. It found that CLA reduced body fat and preserved muscle tissue in overweight or obese people who did not change their diet. People in the CLA group lost six more pounds of body fat, on average, compared to those in the placebo group. Most striking, in one study, subjects who stopped dieting and did not take CLA supplements put weight back on—but with a 75% fat to 25% muscle ratio. Those who stopped dieting but kept taking CLA also gained weight, but their ratio was 50-50 (experiencelife).

What does this mean?

CLA is effective in not only WEIGHT LOSS but MUSCLE GAIN. Your bodybuilding and gym-obsessed customers would especially appreciate this supplement for its power to “prevent the decrease in metabolic rate usually associated with a decrease in caloric consumption,” helping the body convert food more efficiently into energy—energy to work further during long or strenuous workouts (livestrong, experiencelife).

CLA has a long life ahead

CLA does not decrease overall body weight, instead it “keeps a little fat cell from getting bigger,” which can alter the body’s fat-to-muscle ratio, as demonstrated by the above study. But that’s not all! Since this supplement “facilitates the use of stored fat as energy by the body, it may [even] help prevent and treat certain types of heart disease,” such as atherosclerosis” (livestrong). CLA is clearly a supplement we will be hearing more about in the future.
