CLA has been demonstrated to be a fat burner and health promoting nutrient due to its effect on a genetic signaling receptor family named PPAR which is related to fat burning, steroid signaling, inflammation, and glucose/lipid metabolism. CLA helps reduce body fat and increase lean muscle tissue. Studies demonstrate that CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme which breaks down fat globules so they can be absorbed and stored as fat cells in the body. By inhibiting this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat deposited and stored throughout your body. CLA increases lean muscle tissue while maximizing your body’s fat-burning potential. This way, you lose weight in the right places.
