Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid which produces prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are found in every cell and are important to maintaining health. Numerous clinical studies appear to show that CLA improves body composition by reducing fat while preserving muscle tissue, but more studies are needed. Tonalin® is the licensed brand name of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid first discovered in the early 1980’s that continues to be studied for its diverse applications in promoting good health. Tonalin® CLA is made through a proprietary process that converts the linoleic acid derived from safflower oil to conjugated linoleic acid. Tonalin® CLA is a safe, scientifically proven, effective nutritional supplement that contains no stimulants of any kind. One of the most significant reasons for obesity in America could be due to a CLA deficiency. While the only way to get CLA in food is through meat and dairy products, it has been shown that CLA content in our food has decreased by 60% over the past 40 years. This is due to the current feeding practices of cattle farms. CLA has been shown in numerous studies to reduce body fat while increasing lean muscle mass but more studies are needed. < Studies have shown that CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat from our diet so that it can be absorbed and stored in the body. By suppressing this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat deposited and stored throughout the body. To summarize, studies have shown that CLA reduces body fat in four ways.
- By decreasing the amount of fat that is stored after eating
- By increasing the rate of fat breakdown in fat cells
- By increasing the rate of fat burning
- By decreasing the total number of fat cells
While there have been many clinical studies related to CLA, more studies are needed before specific health benefits can be claimed.
