If you’re looking for a stimulant-free fat burner to help you achieve your body conditioning goals, reach for a bottle of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) at your local Dis-Chem Pharmacy.

This science-backed body toner is an omega-6 fatty acid that is naturally present in the meat of animals such as cattle, sheep and goats. It is also found in certain dairy products. It is a polyunsaturated fat, which falls into the broadly accepted ‘healthy’ fats category.

Achieve better body composition

Research suggests that CLA in supplemental form can help to improve fat metabolism and enhance body composition, without the stimulatory effects associated with thermogenic fat burners.

This also means CLA is an ideal product to use for a prolonged period to assist with long-term body composition management. Several studies showed CLA supplements could reduce body fat and improve lean body mass.

The science-backed ways in which CLA can help you achieve your body composition and toning goals include:

  1. Decreasing the amount of fat your body stores.
  2. Maintaining or preserving lean muscle by helping your body burn calories more efficiently.

CLA enhances fat metabolism

Under normal circumstances, when dietary fat is not used for energy, it is stored in fat cells. The enzyme lipoprotein lipase plays an integral role in the storage of body fat and CLA has been shown to inhibit this enzyme.

As a result, when using a CLA supplement, fatty acids are seemingly diverted to muscle cells, where they are be preferentially burnt for fuel.
