CLA - Conjugated Linoleic Acid
CLA inhibits fat storage by enhancing the ability of cell membranes (other than fat cells) to open up and allow the absorption of fats and other nutrients. It also promotes the growth of muscles by letting nutrients into active muscle cells. Dr. Michael Pariza, who conducted research on CLA with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, reported in August 2000 to the American Chemical Society that — It doesn’t make a big fat cell get little. What it rather does is keep a little fat cell from getting big.Ó Trials have shown CLA to help build muscles, reduce body fat, while protecting against arterial disorders and a host of aging-related diseases. CLA pushes glucose (blood sugar) into muscle and connective tissue cells instead of letting it turn into body fat. CLA also reduces protein degradation (catabolic metabolism) that occurs with advancing age. It can help develop a better-looking as well as healthier body.
CLA is a unique supplement. Not only does it guard against serious diseases and health conditions, but it is also an effective tool for one of the most serious conditions affecting Americans: Obesity. As more and more Americans join the ranks of the overweight, millions more start diets that are usually destined to failure. Why? Because when less calories are consumed, there is usually a significant loss of muscle as well as fat, due to the fact that the body starts to burn, or catabolic, muscle for energy. This can lead to even more serious health consequences (your heart, for example, is a muscle). Not to mention the fact that without lean muscle mass, which burns calories while fat tissue doesn’t, the body’s metabolism plummets with every ounce of muscle digested therefore requiring the dieter to eat less and less to maintain weight loss. Conversely, a higher level of lean muscle tissue means that the body’s metabolism is increase (more calories are burned). Achieving a high metabolism translates into the dieter being able to eat more and still lose fat.
