Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals CLA 1000
Promotes The reduction Of Body Fat!
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) has
come to be sought after for its ability to aid in FAT LOSS and improve
overall body composition. This unique form of linoleic acid falls into
the Omega-6 category and is primarily supplemented to assist in FAT LOSS
while also boasting a myriad of other proposed benefits including
supporting cardiovascular health, glucose metabolism and overall health.
While much of the research surrounding CLA supplementation is muddled
with animal models and slightly inconclusive evidence, there has been
some finite research in humans that gives promise to gym rats looking
for a 6-pack.
For much of CLA’s supplemental
infancy its efficacy was backed by evidence drawn from research on rats
and other animals. While results on how CLA supplementation can get
help get you shredded, there’s nothing that gives a greater sense of
security than direct results in humans. In 2007 Whigham, et.al. found
that a median dose of 3.2g/day elicited a “modest” amount of fat loss in
humans. What does that mean? Roughly 0.09 kg/wk or ~.2 lb/wk of fat
loss relative to placebo groups. It was also found that fat loss was
linear for 6 months before a plateau in rate of loss was seen. The
aforementioned information you have translates to a possible 4.75lbs of
fat loss in 6 months just from CLA supplementation. That seems like a
pretty good return on investment if you are already doing your due
diligence on the diet and training side of things.
So now that you’re convinced of CLA’s efficacy
and you’re ready to get shredded, let’s get to the recommendations.
Although a tasty grass-fed beef burger is a good sources of CLA, using a
CLA supplement is a much more sensible way of reaping its benefits. It
takes roughly100 grams of fat from grass-fed beef to get 1 gram of CLA,
and if you’re trying to get in the effective dose of 3.2g/day you’ll
probably just end up getting fat by obtaining your CLA purely through
food. Not to mention you will have to deal with the proverbial
gastrointestinal logjam that would ensue thereafter. Thus,
supplementation seems to be the best route. Of note, naturally derived
and supplemental CLA both have different isomer contents, with the
trans-10, cis-12 isomer affecting body FAT REDUCTION most in animals.
However, the majority of human studies have used mixed isomers and
suggest positive effects on fat loss, with little to no side effects.
While CLA can
aid in improving your body composition, it should be acknowledged that
it is a supplement and should be used in addition to an appropriate
training and dietary PROGRAM. So once your meals are prepared, your gym
bag is packed, remember to toss some CLA into your daily pill case and
be on your way to a healthier, more ripped version of yourself!
