Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that CLA helps reduce body fat and increase muscle strength and size.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

Research suggests that conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may help reduce body fat and increase muscle strength and size. There are at least seven human studies (two double-blind and some controlled) showing significant reduction of abdominal obesity and body fat mass in overweight and moderately obese people. However, since most of the studies involved a small number of participants and were short in duration, larger double-blind studies are needed to further document the benefits and mechanisms of action.

Although CLA promotes weight loss, which is good for heart health, it is important to monitor HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels as CLA may reduce them.

*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
