CLA is known for its nutritional properties - to promote the absorption of nutrients by muscle cells instead of fat cells. The result is more muscle mass and less body fat.

What is CLA?

CLA is an abbreviation for conjugated linoleic acid (Conjugated Linoleic Acid in English) and refers to a mixture of fatty acids with the structure of linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated fatty acid). CLA is best studied for its fat-burning properties via the molecular signaling system PPAR which is associated with fat burning, hormone signaling, inflammation and metabolism of glucose and fatty acids. Studies in humans have shown varying results. The doses that showed marked results have been within 3200 to 6400 mg daily. There is currently no evidence that higher doses would have a higher effect.

Benefits of CLA

CLA can promote fat burning while having a certain nutritional effect. This means that more nutrition goes to the muscle cells and less to the fat cells, which is beneficial in weight gain. A study has also shown reduced fat mass and increased muscle mass when taking CLA when you have a moderate energy surplus from your diet. CLA also has an antioxidant effect, has been shown to lower cholesterol and has an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins in the body. Decreased prostaglandin levels also increase the body's ability to release fat from the body's fat reserves, especially from the abdomen. Summation CLA is suitable for both you on a diet or those who are trying to gain weight. CLA's inhibitory effect on prostaglandins can help the adipose tissue to release fatty acids more easily, especially around the abdomen.
