TROUBLE LOSING WEIGHT? SUPPLEMENT WITH CLA!
Conjugated linoleic acid or CLA is a supplement used to promote fat loss & the growth of lean muscle tissue. It is highly effective in assisting weight loss & changing body composition. The action of CLA is that it prevents lipogenesis or the storage of fat in adipose tissue after a meal.
CLA is an essential fatty acid found in beef, ground turkey, lamb, cheese and milk. To get the optimal amount of CLA needed you would have to consume huge amount of these foods, adding too many calories which is counteractive for weight loss. Supplementing with CLA is an excellent alternative, with the added benefit of acting as an antioxidant and immune system enhancer.
