SANDERSON® CLA Safflower 1000 (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid provides a dynamic nutritional support for a planned weight management programme. CLA is a phytonutrient found in safflower oil that appears to support the body’s ‘fat burning’ ability by enhancing the metabolic rate. Some thirty-five intervention studies have been conducted using CLA in humans to investigate the effects of CLA on weight management. These studies, which vary widely in CLA dose and duration, show the most significant effect of CLA on weight management is on body composition, a reduction in total body fat and an increase in lean body mass.
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a powerful natural support to a weight management program combining diet and exercise.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, published in the December 2000 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue. According to the research project manager, an average reduction of six pounds of body fat was found in the group that took CLA, compared to a placebo group. The study found that approximately 3.4 grams of CLA per day is the level needed to obtain the beneficial effects of CLA on body fat.
CLA appears to increase the body’s metabolic rate giving a ‘fat burner’ effect.
May interact with some diabetic medication. Not recommended for breast feeding mothers.
