CLA is a naturally occurring, slightly altered version of the Omega-6 Linoleic Acid. It plays an important role in a variety of cellular metabolic processes including how your body utilizes and deposits fat. CLA has also been shown to support lean body composition and since it is stimulant-free, stack well with other products. Even though conjugated linoleic acid is a trans fat, there's a purpose for this one! Specifically, CLA helps reduce the urge for unneeded food intake and inhibits the production of additional fats. Basically, CLA is a special type of fat that takes the place of our need for other, unhealthy fats. CLA hardwires us to stay lean and clean, helping us to burn the calories that already exist, instead of craving additional calories that serve no purpose. *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
