CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Display: 1-12 from 12 products

Conjugated linoleic acid (in short, CLA) is a mixture of different types of linoleic acid isomers, mainly positional and geometrical isomers, which is mainly found in dairy products and meats. CLA is probably the supplement you've heard of, but don't know much about. Conjugated linoleic acid is also unique because it is present in animal feed, and its anticancer properties are expressed in concentrations close to human consumption.


Conjugated linoleic acid is an altered form of linoleic acid (LA), an omega-6 fatty acid important for health. Omega-6 fatty acids are derived from the foods we eat, especially meat and dairy products. That's why, as I said above, CLA is mostly found in these food groups.

CLA first attracted the attention of scientists in 1988, when its anti-cancer properties were first observed in a group of mice fed only hamburgers. CLA cannot be synthesized by the body, but it can be obtained through foods such as whole milk, butter, beef or lamb.

CLA is a powerful antioxidant, anticancer and anticatabolic, as well as a good stimulator of the immune system. It is also used during weight loss, for its properties to burn fat and protect and build muscle tissue.

CLA supplementation has the following benefits:

  • Increased metabolic rate - is a welcome property for anyone who wants to lose weight and change their body composition.
  • Increased muscle growth - muscles burn fat, and contribute to increasing the metabolic rate, another advantage when trying to lose weight.
  • Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides - as many people have too much cholesterol and the same with triglycerides, it can have a beneficial impact on anyone struggling with cholesterol.
  • Decreases insulin resistance - besides the fact that it does not prevent diabetes, it helps a lot to lose weight; insulin is the one that gives the signal for the deposition of fats - by secreting less, the chances of getting fat decrease a lot.
  • Reduces allergies caused by food - as allergies to some foods can mess up your diet when you want to lose weight, it is an obvious advantage.
  • Strengthens the immune system - I think everyone realizes the benefit of having a strong immune system.
