LINOLEIC ACID , known as CLA, is an essential fatty acid from the omega-6 family that plays an important role in the human body. It is essential for health, because the body is not able to synthesize it on its own and must be supplied with food. Linoleic acid affects the functioning of the body on many levels, including the hormonal, immune and metabolic levels. In the diet of athletes, CLA is often used because of its potential benefits in terms of improving endurance and reducing body fat.
Research suggests that CLA may help increase muscle mass because it affects protein synthesis in the body. However, too much CLA in the diet can lead to inflammation and negatively affect metabolism.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg per day.
