CLA – long-chain linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid with two conjugated double bonds. It is an isomer of linoleic acid. Can occur naturally in many different types of animal products, most commonly found in dairy fat and beef. It belongs to trans fats, but it does not have a negative effect on our health. Conjugated linoleic acid has been shown to have a positive effect on cancer, diabetes, inflammation and blood lipids. When considering the potential use of linoleic acid as a dietary supplement, it should also be noted that it improves body composition by increasing the metabolic rate and reducing the activity of fat-storing enzymes. Therefore, CLA supplementation during a weight loss diet may contribute to increasing dietary effects. CLA can be purchased in the form of a single preparation. It is also often a component of fat burners.
Dosage: from 3 to 6 grams per day.
