PhD Nutrition CLA
What is CLA?
CLA is short for Conjugated Linoleic Acid, an ingredient ideal for anybody looking to keep lean or drop body fat. CLA derives from safflower oil and is an essential fatty acid that cannot be produced within the body. CLA can be found in milk, cheese and beef however only in really small doses.
Who is CLA for?
CLA is suitable for both men and women who are looking to keep body fat low or burn body fat. Whether you’re looking to add lean muscle and keep the body fat at bay or are encountering a cutting/ fat loss phase in order to drop body weight, CLA is a supplement you need in your arsenal. Unfortunately, CLA is not suitable for vegetarians.
The Benefits of CLA
Studies suggest that CLA can help aid weight loss by increasing our bodies BMR (basal metabolic rate). This is the rate at which our body burns calories, therefore an increase in BMR means more calories are burned for the body to function.
