About CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid):
*CLA is a naturally occurring trans isomer of linoleic acid, which may benefit body composition and support weight control. It is unique in structure because of the location of the double bonds in the linoleic acid molecule. Recent research shows that the specific isomers c9,t11 and t10,c12 play key roles in many of CLA's physiological properties. In a preliminary human study involving 60 overweight subjects, conjugated linoleic acid reduced body fat mass. Several animal studies explore possible mechanisms of CLA, including the ability to moderate fat deposition, increase lipolysis in adipocytes, reduce energy intake, increase energy expenditure and support metabolic rate.
Pure Encapsulations concentrated, improved potency CLA provides an average of 77% total CLA, and contains the main isomers c9,t11 and t10,c12 in a 39:39 ratio.
CLA has been shown to play an important role in promoting a healthy body composition. The use of CLA for nutritional purposes is covered under one or more of the following patents: 5,017,614; 5,428,072; 5,430,066.
