CLA is an essential fatty acid that helps reduce body fat and increase lean muscle tissue. Studies show that CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat globules so they can be absorbed and stored as fat cells in the body. By inhibiting this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat that is deposited and stored in the body.
CLA increases lean muscle tissue while maximizing your body's fat burning capabilities. Muscle tissue is denser and more compact than body fat, which makes your body firmer, looks slimmer and makes you feel more energetic. CLA is best known for its contribution to the reduction of body fat and the increase of lean muscle tissue. It has been scientifically proven that CLA helps you achieve your diet goal in two ways: CLA increases lean muscle mass, making your body slimmer naturally. Subsequently, the added muscle mass burns more fat. This way you lose weight in the right places and your clothing size decreases.
Some scientists have linked the steady rise in obesity over the past 30 years to the reduction of CLA in our diets. There are two reasons for this: we have significantly reduced their consumption of beef and dairy products. In addition, changes in cattle and dairy feed (from pasture grass to forage crops) reduced CLA production by 65%.
Dietary CLA has been shown to affect body composition through a reduction in body fat and an increase in lean tissue or muscle. According to Michael Pariza of the University of Wisconsin, this area of CLA research is the most supported. Recently, research has focused on clinical studies with great success; demonstrating a statistically significant reduction in body fat as measured by BMI (Body Mass Index). A significant decrease in waist measured in inches, a positive result for weight loss in slightly overweight individuals, and an increase in strength. Human clinical studies have been conducted worldwide to demonstrate improved body composition. Positive results from CLA supplementation have been observed in research centers worldwide. Kent State University, University of Memphis, University of Wisconsin, USDA Western Human Research Center, Medstat Research Ltd. in Norway, Uppsala University in Sweden, University of Kumanoto in Japan and University of Tours in France.
CLA appears to have direct effects on adipocytes, the major stores of fat, and on skeletal muscle cells, the major site of fat burning. It has been proposed that the physiological mechanism of body fat reduction by CLA is inhibition of fat storage in adipocytes in combination with increased β-oxidation in skeletal muscle. An overall increase in skeletal muscle tissue can be achieved at least in part by inhibition of immune-induced catabolism.
CLA is a metabolically active compound that has been shown to dramatically reduce body fat and increase lean body tissue. The mechanisms of action are not fully understood, but since CLA has been shown to affect a wide variety of enzymes and hormones in the body, multiple mechanisms may be involved. Numerous human studies are underway that will better demonstrate efficacy and dose-response. Expectations are high that research will also show no loss of body fat, suggesting that CLA should be included in every diet. Not only does CLA have no harmful side effects, but it is actually good for your body. Scientists worldwide are only now beginning to understand the many potential health benefits of CLA.
