Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

Definition: CLA is a form of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that naturally occurs in some vegetable oils and in beef, veal and dairy products. It has impressive antitumor and antioxidant properties. It seems to have the ability to prevent the build-up of cholesterol deposits in the arteries and to promote the burning of fat stores.

Applications: Obesity, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, cancer deterrent and natural antioxidant.

Recommendations: Make sure you are getting pure CLA. Adding vegetable oils to a product technically means it has CLA content but this is not the form of CLA you want. Take in recommended doses only. If you have trouble with fat digestion, taking a lipase supplement may enhance assimilation.
