CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) 800 mg - 90 Softgels
 
 

CLA, a distinctive omega-6 fatty acid, has rapidly become one of the most talked about weight loss products since its introduction to the public in the late 90’s. While small amounts can be obtained from meat and dairy products, supplementation may have a substantial impact on how effectively our body chemically decomposes and deposits fat in our cells.

Recent research has shown that use of CLA has proven to be highly effective in reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. And with most Americans consuming less than one gram from their diet per day, NOW CLA is a smart choice for anyone trying to maintain a healthy body weight.

CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid, found in beef and dairy products. The human body does not make CLA and we need to rely on other sources such as supplements. CLA Extreme combines the benefits that active people are seeking with the proven effectiveness of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).

 Before meats and cheeses were as processed as they are today, people's diets used to naturally contain greater quantities of CLA.  Now, supplementation is virtually the only way to achieve the same levels of CLA.  The effectiveness of CLA Extreme will not diminish over time; there is no need to cycle off the product.  CLA Extreme will work best for those who exercise regularly, follow a sensible diet and take the product consistently.

Studies have shown that CLA reduces body fat while preserving muscle tissue, and may also increase your metabolic rate. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that individuals who took 3.2 grams of CLA per day had a drop in fat mass of about 0.2 pounds each week, about one pound a month, compared to those given a placebo. Results showed a significant decrease in body fat mass and the diameter of the abdomen in obese subjects, but not necessary body weight.

Because CLA facilitates the use of stored fat as energy by the body, it may help prevent and treat certain types of heart disease, such as atherosclerosis. CLA prevents the deposition of plaque and lipids in arteries, a key factor in the development and progression of heart disease. CLA may also help prevent heart disease by acting as an antioxidant and by lowering blood pressure.
