MECHANISM OF ACTION
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, refers to a group of conjugated dienoic isomers of linoleic acid, that have been tested extensively and shown to produce a variety of health benefits. CLA is found in various sources including dairy products, meats, and some vegetable oils. CLA has been shown to promote many beneficial effects on body composition including helping promote a decrease in body fat and an increase in lean muscle mass. Research in healthy, overweight individuals demonstrates a reduction in body fat mass in the legs and abdomen which results in decreases in the waist–hip ratio.1,2
Studies in healthy, overweight men and women demonstrate CLA increases the feelings of fullness and satiety, and decreases the feeling of hunger.3
Holiday seasons have been shown to contribute to an increase in weight during adulthood. Research has indicated CLA supplementation in overweight adults, during holiday seasons and similar lifestyle activities may help prevent weight gain during the holiday season known.4
