CLA - For Fat Loss
CLA - Conjugated Linoleic Acid
CLA Capsules have been around for years, and still seem to
be ever popular in the Fat Loss supplements. Reflex Nutrition has recently added
top quality CLA to their range, and, as expected from Reflex,
their CLA supplement represents exceptional value for money.
90 x 1000mg Capsules are the best value CLA capsules on the
market. hence the reason we have added this CLA product to
our fat loss supplement range.
That's enough from me, Here's what Reflex have to say about their CLA
Today at Reflex Nutrition, we are devoting considerable resources to researching
the benefits of many different areas of nutritional supplementation. CLA
is a new area, and we're now proud to introduce the strongest CLA
capsule on the market.
CLA - A Lipid with Promising Potential Benefits:We have examined
a number of lipids in our quest for those that offer genuine potential for fat
loss and increased lean mass. CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid is one of the
more promising and the body of research is beginning to build up to an impressive
dossier. Several studies show that CLA has an ability to reduce body fat and
enhance lean mass. Whilst other studies are indicating cholesterol lowering
effects along with anti-carcinogenic properties !
What is CLA ?Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a general term for a mixture of conjugated
dienoic isomers of linoleic acid(C18:2 n-6). Several positional isomers can
be distinguished. However, the two predominant isomers arecis9,trans11 and trans10,cis12.
CLA is present as a natural compound in meat and dairy products.
Reflex CLA contains a special 50:50 mix:Since c9,t11 and t10,c12 are believed
to be active isomers, we have dedicated our research to the development of CLA
with a higher purity of these two isomers than is normally obtained from other
brands.The resulting product ensures better, faster results and better value
How does CLA work ?Studies show that CLA works in a number of ways to help
you achieve your diet goals. CLA interferes with a substance in your body called
lipoprotein lipase that helps store fat in your body. CLA helps your body use
its existing fat for energy. CLA increases lean muscle tissue, which naturally
slims your body (helping to strengthen and vitalise your body). And the more
muscle you have, the more calories your body uses in order to function, thereby
speeding up the fat burning process.
Studies Confirm CLA's Action:Dr. Michael Pariza of the University of Wisconsin-Madison,
co-discoverer of CLA, announced the results of the first human clinical trial
involving 20 men and women, conducted by Erling Thom, Ph.D. of MedStatResearch
Ltd. in Lillestrom, Norway.
"A significant reduction of body fat is obtained during a treatment period
of 3 months with CLA capsules,while no reduction is obtained in a comparable
placebo treated group," was stated in a recent study -The double-blind,
placebo-controlled study confirmed what all previous animal studies on CLA have
documented, CLA's patented ability to reduce body fat and improve lean muscle
mass by improving the way the body utilises nutrients and acting as a powerful
antioxidant.Pariza said the active group receiving CLA showed a 20 percent reduction
in body fat percentage, or an average reduction of seven pounds of fat. Unique
to this type of study, the participants weighed 156 pounds on average and were
instructed not to change their diet or exercise patterns. Thus, the participants
were not obese; they actually had a very normal body mass index of less than
25, Dr.Pariza reported.
High Strength:Reflex Nutrition's state-of-the-art CLA supplement, derived from
natural sunflower oil, is also found naturally in red meats and dairy products.
But to get the same amount of CLA contained in two Reflex CLA soft gel capsules,
you would have to eat six pounds of beefburger meat, or 50 one-ounce slices
of processed cheese, or 40 four-ounce servings of ice cream ! That's a lot of
unwanted calories and quite obviously not practical in any sense !Each 1000mg
CLA capsule provides 800mg of Conjugated Linoleic Acid, which is easily assimilated
into the body. CLA capsules are very easy to use, just take one capsule with
each meal and before you know it,you could have that ripped body you've always
