This product has now been replaced by the NEW CLA Refine 1g. An improved formulation with more CLA but less pennies per capsule.
What is CLA?
CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a type of fatty acid found in high quantities in meat and dairy products. It is an essential fatty acid, which means the human body doesn’t produce it. So, you need to obtain it from your diet. However, factors such as changes in farming practices, food processing and reduced milk consumption have all caused our CLA intake to fall.
CLA is believed to influence the way our bodies store fat, making it popular amongst athletes and slimmers alike, and consumption is strongly recommended in combination with a healthy balanced diet and moderate exercise.
Why choose Healthspan’s CLA capsules?
We make our capsules only from CLA derived naturally from safflowers; the linoleic acid of pure safflower oil is converted into conjugated linoleic acid, making our gelatin-free capsules an ideal vegetarian and vegan source of this beneficial fatty acid. Our highly concentrated formulation contains 1,000mg of conjugated linoleic acid, which is standardised to deliver 80% pure CLA.
CLA is often taken as a natural ingredient for weight management, as it is believed to reduce body fat while maintaining a lean body mass when taken for a minimum of 3 months in combination with a balanced diet and exercise programme. (Although as yet, there is inconclusive evidence to support this. Always research thoroughly and make a decision that is right for you.)
