A slightly altered version of linoleic acid, Conjugated Linoleic Acid is an omega-6 fatty acid integral to overall health. It acts as both an anticarcinogen and antioxidant and works to strengthen the immune system. It can primarily be found in dairy- and meat-based products. This particular version of CLA is plant based and is derived from Safflower Oil. Supplementation of CLA has been used to yield a number of health benefits, including the increase of oneÆs metabolism and decrease of overall body fat. This makes it ideal for athletes who wish to burn fat and enhance muscle mass. In some cases, CLA has been shown to reduce feelings of hunger as well.
