What is CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)?
Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA is a fatty acid that is typically found in beef, lamb, cheese, and milk. CLA contains crucial antioxidants that can allow for many benefits including improved weight loss, lean muscle growth, better lipid profiles, faster recovery after an intense workout and improved overall health.
Does CLA work better for muscle growth or weight loss?
CLA works for both muscle growth and weight loss. While CLA may not be the only supplement that should be taken by bodybuilders, it still helps to repair muscles after a workout and support some muscle growth. As a weight loss supplement, CLA contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) to help improve bodily profile. MCTs decrease fat storage and boost fat burning capabilities to encourage weight loss.
What are lipid profiles?
Lipid profiles are the presence of a lipid in the blood. It is measured as milligrams of lipid per deciliter of blood. This includes overall cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.
How does it improve lipid profiles?
The fatty acid in CLA is the key ingredient that can improve lipid profiles. CLA works to lower bad cholesterol levels, raise good cholesterol levels, and improve your cholesterol ratio. Improved cholesterol and triglyceride levels can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Wouldn’t it be safer to add additional milk or beef to my diet?
There are no dangerous risks associated with CLA. While CLA can be derived solely from food sources, it is not recommended. The amount of CLA found in milk, beef, cheese, and lamb is not substantial enough to allow the results that may yield from supplementation. Additionally, the amount of calories that would need to be consumed to reach the amount of CLA that is found in this supplement would not make effective as a weight loss supplement. Additionally, the other fats in these foods may have a negative impact on lipid levels, instead of a positive one.
