CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID
A powerful cell protectant and regulator of body fat composition†
This naturally occurring derivative of linoleic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid with unique physiological effects on fat metabolism and the immune system.† These effects are quite different from those of linoleic acid and in fact may provide a natural counterbalance to the potentially harmful actions of too much linoleic acid. CLA exerts antioxidant-like activity that helps keep excessive cell proliferation in check. It also exerts a favorable effect on the way the body burns and stores fat.† Contains 78% total CLA with a minimum concentration of 74% biologically active isomers most commonly associated with physiological effect. Vitamin E and natural caramel added to the softgel help maintain freshness by protecting against lipid oxidation.

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid that is part of the omega-6 fatty acid family. CLA cannot be made in the body as humans lack the enzyme needed to convert linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid, into this conjugated form. Primary dietary sources of CLA include beef, milk, butter, cheese, and other dairy products. Small amounts are also found in lamb, veal, turkey, chicken, and pork.
Dietary intake of CLA has declined significantly over the past few decades as a result of reduced consumption of beef and dairy combined with a lower content of CLA in these foods. Shifts in cattle feeding practices from natural grass to grains has resulted in less naturally produced CLA in meat and dairy products.
CLA supports immune system function, cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism, and enhances antioxidant defenses by scavenging free radicals. CLA may also help modulate fat metabolism and storage.†
CLA helps modulate fat metabolism and storage in the body and may help support a healthy weight as part of a healthy diet and regular exercise program.†
The suggested use for Conjugated Linoleic Acid by Klaire Labs™ is 1 softgel, 1 to 3 times daily with food or as directed by a healthcare professional.
