However, CLA also enhances immunity, supports a healthy inflammation response and is a potent provider of antioxidant protection.\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003e\"CLA may be a valuable weight management supplement to any diet regime.\" Jan Wadstein, M.D., Ph.D, associate professor of medicine at Lund University in Sweden. \u003cstrong\u003eWhat is CLA?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a free fatty acid derived from safflower oil related to the omega-6 fatty acids - one of the two types of essential fatty acids. Now conveniently available in a CLA supplement in softgel form! \u003cstrong\u003ePotent antioxidant protection\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e CLA is a powerful antioxidant agent. In the body it is taken up by phospholipids, a class of fats that serve as the principal structural components of cell membranes. CLA enhances the cell membrane's defense mechanism against attack by free radicals. \u003cstrong\u003eHelps stimulate proper immune activity\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e The CLA supplement supports the production of key immune system cells and promotes a healthy inflammation response. CLA supports the PPAR-gamma agonist, a class of internal cell receptors. CLA’s support of important immune compounds such as leukotrienes and prostaglandins, make it a valuable nutrient for maintaining the body's inflammation response. \u003cstrong\u003eReap the benefits from this all-natural multi-facted nutient.\u003c\/strong\u003e In a random-double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 20 healthy people of normal body weight, and body mass index less than 25.0 kg\/m2, who did standardized physical exercise in a gym for 90 min three times weekly, CLA supported weight reduction. Participants took either placebo (hydrogel) or CLA 0.6 mg, three times daily, as two capsules during meals, for 12 weeks. Researchers found significant results in the CLA group during the study, but not in the placebo group. \u003cem\u003e(Source: Thom E, Wadstein J, Gudmundsen O.

The findings showed positive results (-3.8%, P\u0026lt; 0.001) in the CLA-treated group, with a significant difference from the control group (P = 0.050). \u003cem\u003e(Source: Smedman A, Vessby B.
