CLA as the ideal diet product for athletes and body-conscious people

It is ideal for athletes and figure-conscious people: CLA helps to maintain a balanced cholesterol level in the blood.

This is CLA: The abbreviation CLA stands for Conjugated Linoleic Acid . As an essential fatty acid, CLA must be absorbed through the diet. There are omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids - CLA, the polyunsaturated linoleic acid, comes from the pool of omega-6 fatty acids.
The term conjugate makes the arrangement of the single and double bonds clear. In addition, CLA is a natural trans fatty acid that is found in some foods. It can also be synthesized.

How CLA works

CLA adapts to physical metabolic processes and consequently makes weight loss easier. Like L-carnitine, CLA is a kind of insider tip among athletes who are fans of a low-fat diet.
The conjugated linoleic acid supports the organism in breaking down fat cells - excess fat is burned. The splitting processes mentioned mainly take place in the fat cells of the muscle tissue. This is how CLA supports the growth of lean muscle mass.

Blood sugar, cholesterol and the immune system

High plasma cholesterol and increased concentrations of triglycerides in the bloodstream (hypertriglyceridemia) are considered risk factors for cardiovascular problems. We know two types of cholesterol that affect heart health:

  • HDL cholesterol (transports cholesterol away from the heart) as well
  • LDL cholesterol (transports cholesterol to the heart).

If the blood lipid and LDL values are high and the HDL values are low, there is a higher risk of illness. CLA can correct the mismatch and generate better blood lipid levels. In addition, a positive, also balancing effect on the blood sugar level is assumed. Medical studies also look at the positive effects of conjugated linoleic acid on a strong immune system.

Important CLA sources

Dairy products and meat are good suppliers from the area of our natural foods: CLA can be found in significant quantities in chicken, lamb and beef, in pork as well as in cottage cheese, cow's milk and cheddar cheese. Vegetarians and vegans are recommended to take CLA in the form of high-quality nutritional supplements. Because there is CLA as an extract from safflower and sunflower oil, all of which are of vegetable origin.

Dosage of CLA

There are currently no strict and uniform recommendations for the period of intake and when to supplement CLA. The preferred doses in the ongoing studies range from 0.7 grams to 6.8 grams per day. The linoleic acid is taken as a cure for periods between 8 and 12 weeks. The most common dose is 3 grams of CLA per day. Supplementation with a meal is recommended.

How can CLA support you as best as possible

Conjugated linoleic acid CLA supports the path to weight loss. In addition, it should support the building of fat-free muscles. Further positive effects are assigned to CLA in lowering the elevated cholesterol level, in improving the individual blood sugar values and to support the immune system.

As a dose-dependent dietary supplement, CLA is recommended in doses of 0.7 grams and up to 6.8 grams - an average value of 3 grams per day in the form of a high-quality supplement. CLA is taken over a period of 8 to 12 weeks.

Various studies are still underway to further demonstrate the effectiveness of CLA as a dietary supplement. The basic knowledge based on the theoretical findings receives further support through the use of advanced technologies. For many, CLA is considered a kind of effective wonder weapon in the fight against superfluous body fat.
