CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid
CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid , offered by Douglas Laboratories®, provide a significant amount of conjugated linoleic acid, together with an extract of green tea for maximum stabilization, and is thought to be an effective modulator of metabolism, reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass.
CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a mixture of conjugated dienoic derivatives of linoleic acid from safflower oil. Conjugated linoleic acid is found mainly in meat and dairy foods; however it can also be found in certain vegetable oils. Its presence in human tissue comes not only from dietary sources, but also from in vivo oxidation of linoleic acid.
Although CLA’s activity as a potent metabolic modulator was first recognized in studies of its anticarcinogenic properties in fried hamburger, research of its metabolic activity has now expanded to include its ability to modulate lipid and energy metabolism, particularly control of body fat and muscle, as well as atherosclerosis.
This product may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their weight control efforts.
