CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) has been found to promote the natural fat metabolism of the body, making it easier to get your body in shape. Several studies investigating the effects of CLA on weight management and body composition confirm this. These studies show that supplementation with CLA aids in weight management by promoting fat loss. When weight is gained, or regained after a diet, CLA has been found to promote muscle growth as well as to inhibit the growth of fat cells, improving the shape of the body.
Scientists now believe that CLA may have a unique effect on body fat in many ways including:
• Inhibiting the transport mechanism of fat into fat cells. This way the size of these cells is reduced, which may lead to an improved body shape.
• Enhancing the activity of an enzyme present in the muscles. By stimulating this enzyme, it helps the body to build up more muscle mass.
Using CLA in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet is essential for good body weight management.
