CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID (CLA)
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a fatty acid found in red meat and
cheese. It has been shown to improve the lean muscle mass to body fat ratio, decreasing fat deposition, especially on the abdomen, and enhancing muscle growth. To achieve this,
It reduces body fat by enhancing insulin sensitivity so that fatty acid and glucose can pass through muscle cell membranes and away from fat tissue.
It also enhances immunity, and discourages the accumulation of cholesterol in the blood.
