CLA is a naturally-occurring fatty acid found in our diet. Since the body cannot produce this fatty acid, it can only be obtained through the diet. CLA is best known as an effective product for reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass, resulting in an improved body shape. Following digestion, CLA is absorbed and metabolised by the body, as are all types of oils. Studies have shown that CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat from our diet so that it can be absorbed and stored in the body. By suppressing this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat deposited and stored throughout the body, when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
