Description of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) 800mg 90 Softgels, NOW Foods
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), a distinctive omega-6 fatty acid, has rapidly
become one of the most talked about weight loss products since its introduction
to the public in the late 90's. While small amounts can be obtained from meat
and dairy products, supplementation may have a substantial impact on how effectively
our body chemically decomposes and deposits fat in our cells. Recent research
has shown that use of CLA has proven to be highly effective in reducing body fat
and increasing muscle mass. And with most Americans consuming less than one gram
from their diet per day, NOW CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a smart choice for
anyone trying to maintain a healthy body weight.
What is CLA and what is it good for?
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a naturally occurring derivative of linoleic
acid. Studies suggest that CLA may bring about favorable changes in body composition
by metabolizing fat for energy, which may assist with weight control. CLA also
possesses antioxidant activity, supports cardiovascular health, and is currently
being researched for possible anticarcinogenic activity.
NOW uses BioOriginal brand CLA, one of the best available CLA supplements derived
from safflower oil. It contains 70% CLA with no trans-fats present, comparable
to most brands on the market today.
How much CLA is in your supplement, and is it safe for anyone to take?

products. It is plant-derived from safflower oil and palm oil.
