CLA hardwires us to maintain lean body composition, helping to reduce the urge to eat unhealthy fats and burn the calories that already exist, instead of craving additional empty calories.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring, omega-6 fatty acid found in plant oils and foods like eggs, dairy products, and red meat, but only in small levels. CLA is considered a healthy trans fat. To receive the amounts of CLA needed to achieve favorable changes in body composition through foods alone, you’d need to consume far too much dietary fat.
Fortunately, the benefits of CLA can be achieved through supplementation. A number of studies have demonstrated that when combined with an exercise regimen, CLA can help improve lean muscle mass, increase fat loss, and support a healthy metabolism.
