Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is believed to influence the way our bodies store fat. Normally CLA would be present in our diet in the form of beef products, however, modern farming methods and the move away from meat consumption has greatly reduced many people’s intake. As a result intakes may be as little as 200mg, when some researchers believe an intake of 3000mg (3g) might be a better target. Studies have shown that CLA may help people to maintain an optimum balance between body fat and lean muscle when it is used in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet. CLA is therefore likely to be of interest to athletes on very low fat diets, and those people concerned about body composition and shape. Lamberts® CLA Powder contains Tonalin® CLA, which is a natural conjugated linoleic acid derived from the safflower plant. It is the most researched CLA available and the unique process ensures that it contains the most bioactive elements of CLA. This product has a mild pleasant milky taste and can be eaten off the spoon, added to sports shakes or stirred in to hot drinks.
