Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is type of fatty acid that naturally occurs in foods of animal origin – mainly meat and dairy products.

Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is type of fatty acid that naturally occurs in foods of animal origin – mainly meat and dairy products. It has a slightly altered structure to that of linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid required for human health), and therefore, offers different properties. Since CLA cannot be made by the body, it is classified as essential, thus it is an important component of the diet. It is important to note that the CLA is a naturally occurring trans-fat which is very unlike that produced commercially (such as margarine); our recommended daily intake of trans-fat is set at 2% in account of this.

Full-fat dairy products, eggs, butter, lamb and beef are the best sources, with grass-fed varieties said to contain significantly more CLA than their grain-fed counterparts. In fact, it’s estimated that grass-fed meat may deliver up to four times more CLA than grain-fed, with dairy products having 3-5 times as much by the same comparison. CLA is available in supplement form which is useful, since it can be quite difficult to track intake through food alone.

Research suggests that CLA has many benefits; it has been shown to enhance metabolic rate and assist fat burning. Studies indicate that increasing intake of CLA may help to reduce lipogenesis (fat storage). Furthermore, it can help to increase muscle mass \u2013 a winning combination if you’re looking to improve your body composition!

CLA is sometimes referred to as ‘anti-catabolic,’ which means it helps to prevent the catabolism (break down) of valuable muscle tissue. It’s also believed to boost insulin sensitivity, and encourage the transportation of glucose and fatty acids into muscle cells where they are expended as energy (rather than glucose being directed towards fat cells). This mechanism encourages a preferred muscle-fat ratio – especially around the abdominal area.

In addition to the above, CLA is said to offer antioxidant support, enhance the immune system, and may even exhibit a positive effect on cholesterol levels. As a supplement, it can greatly compliment your fitness regime (whatever your goals), as well as helping to maintain good, general health.
