CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), is a naturally occurring fatty acid found primarily in cattle and dairy products. CLA is best known for helping to reduce body fat and increase lean muscle tissue. CLA is scientifically-proven to help you obtain your diet goal two ways: CLA increases lean muscle mass, which naturally slims your body. Then, the added muscle burns more fat. This way, you lose weight in the right places and drop clothes sizes. CLA is quickly becoming a �€�must have�€� for people who are looking to lose fat and gain muscle.
The History of CLA
People used to receive healthy doses of CLA in their diets through regular consumption of beef and dairy fats. However, changes over the past 30 years in the way cattle are raised and in the foods people eat have lowered the amount of CLA people get from their diet. Cattle are no longer pasture grazed, resulting in a decrease in their internal production of CLA. Most individuals are concerned with cholesterol and fat so they eat less red meat and dairy products. This eliminates even more CLA from the average diet.
CLA was first identified in 1987 by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The identification of CLA resulted in nine years of experiments by Michael Pariza, PhD. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In 1978, Dr. Pariza first noted an extract in beef that appeared to be an anitcarcinogenic. In 1987, he identified this extract as CLA. With this identification, came a surge of scientific studies and research on how CLA affects body mass and other beneficial effects on human health.
Not only does CLA have no harmful side effects, but it's actually good for your body. As a matter of fact, scientists worldwide are just beginning to understand CLA's wide range of potential health benefits. Extensive research is now showing CLA to play an important role as a multi-beneficial health promoter. More than 200 studies worldwide are indicating that CLA may help reduce the incidence of breast cancer, improve asthma, allergy control, and blood sugar control (diabetes), and limit the extent of atherosclerosis which can lead to heart disease.
In the early 1980s, it was discovered that CLA interfered with the growth of cancer tumors. Since then, a number of other studies have further shown CLA's cancer-fighting potential. Some of these studies have shown that CLA can suppress cancer development in animals, and in human cancer cell lines in vitro. CLA also seems to play a role in protecting against breast cancer in humans. Over the next few years, additional studies are planned to help further understand the role CLA may play in the fight against cancer.
-Made with Tonalin, making it the highest quality CLA available.
-CLA interferes with a substance in your body called lipoprotein lipase that helps
store fat in your body.
-CLA helps your body use its existing fat for energy.
-CLA increases lean muscle tissue, which naturally slims your body (and makes
you feel strong and healthy). And the more muscle you have, the more calories
your body uses in order to function, thereby speeding up the fat burning process.
As a result, you get smaller in all the right places. You drop clothes sizes. You
look great. You feel great. And no yo-yo dieting effect.
