Description: CLA is a varied form of the essential fatty acid linoleic acid. It is found in the red meat of cattle that are fed natural grasses. It is also found in eggs, poultry, and safflower and corn oil. CLA is mainly used as a supplement to reduce body fat. Animal and test tube studies have demonstrated its anticancer properties, but these results have yet to be proven in human studies.

Indications:

  • Cancer prevention
  • Weight loss

Precautions: There are occasional reports of digestive upset.

Dosage: Take 1,000 mg two to three times daily.
