Be sure when comparing CLA products that the amounts listed are CLA and not just the oils containing CLA. Many products say 1000mg softgels and imply that youre getting 1000mg of CLA when you are actually getting only 740mg to 820mg of CLA. Thats because the most CLA is made from Safflower oil which contains 74% - 82% CLA. Be sure to read label information carefully.
CLA has been the subject of a variety of research in the past several years, and findings also suggest that some of the other benefits of CLA include the following:
• Promotes decreasing of body fat especially abdominal fat.
• May help increase lean body mass
• Enhances immune system
• May help cells defend against free radicals
• May help normalize impaired glucose tolerance in non insulin dependent diabetics.
• May help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels
• May help increase metabolic rate for increased fat burning
Weight Loss Benefits
CLA works in several ways to help you reach your diet and weight loss goals.
First, and perhaps most important, CLA can decrease body fat... while at the same time, increase lean muscle mass. It decreases body fat by helping your body use its existing fat for energy... thus burning off fat. CLA also works to reduce body fat by decreasing fat accumulation in fat cells. It does this by interfering with a substance in your body called lipoprotein lipase that helps store fat in your body... thus inhibiting fat cells from accumulating more fat.
Second, CLA helps to increase lean muscle tissue. This will naturally help slim your body and help burn more fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body uses... thus speeding up the fat burning process.
Third, many people see the most loss in inches in the abdominal region.
Major news for people with thyroid problems who are facing weight loss challenges is the news that (CLA) reduces body fat in people who are overweight.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, published in the December 2000 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue. According to the research project manager, an average reduction of six pounds of body fat was found in the group that took CLA, compared to a placebo group. The study found that approximately 3.4 grams of CLA per day is the level needed to obtain the beneficial effects of CLA on body fat.
If you're interested in taking CLA to help with weight loss, keep in mind that it's not a magic pill, and you should also start a program of diet and exercise in order to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
How Long Does It Take To See Results From CLA?
If you regularly take the recommended amounts, results from CLA can be seen in eight to 12 weeks. This is the time taken to see a change in clinical studies which have been carried out. The reason may be that certain isomers of CLA are stored in the tissues and membranes of cells in the body and thus certain levels may need to be reached before one would see an effect. Some people see faster results by taking larger amounts to get to these levels quicker.
How Much CLA Do You Need To Get These Great Benefits?
To achieve optimal benefits from CLA, it is best to consume 3 to 4 grams per day in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
CLA Prevents Weight Regain
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition, CLA reduced body fat mass and prevented weight regain in subjects supplemented for 24 months. Among other findings, subjects given CLA for 12 months did not regain body fat mass or body weight, and experienced reduction in plasma levels of total cholesterol and LDL ('bad') cholesterol.
