So, if you have belly fat, eat this formula for 5 days and then take CLA ongoing and you will reduce your belly….I am in it to WIN IT…read on!
CLA- THE FACTS ARE IN
While no supplement specifically reduces belly fat, as you cannot spot reduce, Conjugated linoleic acids, or CLA, has been scientifically proven to help you lose body fat in general. When accompanied by a balanced diet and well-rounded exercise program, CLA not only helps you lose fat, it helps you maintain lean muscle mass while dieting. Consult a health care professional before using any dietary supplement or if you would like to speak to a personal physician you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for an evaluation based on your personal health history.
CLA is a group of fatty acids, all with very similar characteristics. These fats are found primarily in meat and dairy products, with red meats being a good source of CLA. Red meat is an even better source of CLA if it is grass-fed rather than grain fed. According to a 2000 study published in “Livestock Production Science,” grass-fed beef can have 300 to 500 percent of the CLA of grain-fed beef. Even though CLA is a trans fatty acid, it has a lower melting point than many other fats, which makes it easier to metabolize for energy.
CLA contributes to fat loss, but you would need to eat a lot of red meat to get enough CLA to accomplish any noticeable result plus this would probably not be a good idea anyway. CLA is commonly supplemented in capsule form, and dosages range from 300 to 1,200 mg per capsule. CLA is approved for use and is included on the Generally Recognized as Safe, or GRAS, list.
CLA is an effective fat-loss agent. In a 2000 study published in the “Journal of Nutrition,” CLA was shown to reduce body fat in all study participants who used the supplement. In a review of 18 studies published in the “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,” CLA was shown to be effective at reducing fat mass in all participants in every study. The effective average dose of CLA was 3.2 g per day.

Other Benefits of CLA
In addition to fat loss, CLA can function as both an anti-carcinogenic and an anti-inflammatory agent. In a 2005 study published in the “Journal of Physiology and Biochemistry,” CLA was shown to reduce the inflammation that results from illness and arthritis. In a 2002 study published in the “Journal of Nutrition,” CLA supplementation was shown to slow the growth of cancerous tumors.
In conclusion there is really no reason not to take CLA if you are trying to lose fat, especially around the mid areas of the torso. Not only will it help you with fat loss, but it will help to reduce the risks of cancer and other inflammatory illnesses. Not all vitamin supplements on the market today are considered equal so it is recommended that you use a reputable high quality resource.
