CLA, Conjugated Linoleic Acid,is a polyunsaturated fat found in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid found mostly in plant oils. CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid. You have probably heard that we get too much omega-6 in our diets and not enough omega-3. However, the anti-inflammatory properties of CLA cause it to behave more like an omega-3 in the body.
Studies have shown that CLA reduces body fat, other test results suggest that it increases muscle strength and promotes exercise endurance.
Our bodies do not produce CLA, it is mainly obtainable through pasture raised beef and whole milk, thus making supplements the best and healthiest way to obtain CLA.
