    Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

    June 5, 2015, 3:53 am

    Hey Everyone,

     

    I have just started the next phase of my cut which is slightly more aggressive in terms of calorie reduction and cardio and I had a a bit of spare cash so I bought some CLA - conjugated Linoleic Acid.

     

    Now I don't ussually buy supps without solid research to back it up, however I did look in to this and the verdict on this swings in both directions as the evidence for it is very weak as is the evidence against it.

     

    http://examine.com/supplements/Conjugated%20Linoleic%20Acid

     

    And although the magnitude of effect is minor its still in the A class of level of evidence which suggests that the evidence is legit.

     

    so I thought I would give it a go.

     

    Has anyone else used this with a solid training plan, on point nutrition and seen results?

     

    I would love to hear your experiances

     

    Thanks for reading

    Nils,

     

    CLA, as an Omega-6 fatty acid, is essential and aids fat loss. However, I believe in getting it from foods - meat, eggs, butter, dairy - versus using supplements. The body is better set up to extract essential nutrients from food in their natural state versus pills. Just my opinion.........

    Hey Jim,

     

    Yeah I see what your saying about getting it from foods! but what if i'm not getting enough! :-(

     

    I'm finding it difficult to track the types of fats I am getting.

    Nils,

     

    Trust me - if you are eating enough meat and dairy, you are getting plenty of CLA. You need to be careful with Omega 6 fatty acids as they are pro-inflammatory. The proper ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fatty acids for health should be 1:1 or no more than 1:4. Today's typical diets are 1:25 or even 1:40. This is way too much Omega 6 and creates the perfect environment for diseases based on inflammation like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and dementia.
