Health Notes

Conjugated Linoleic Acid

Conjugated Linoleic Acid
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Obesity
Dose: 3.2 to 4.2 grams daily
Though the evidence is conflicting, some studies have shown CLA to be effective at helping people lose body fat. (more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Conjugated linoleic acid may play a role in reducing body fat. Research has reported that CLA supplementation produces minor gains in muscle size and strength in weight-training men.(more)
Prostate Cancer
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Preliminary research suggests that CLA might reduce the risk of cancers at several sites, including breast, prostate, colorectal, lung, skin, and stomach.(more)
Breast Cancer
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Preliminary research suggests that CLA might reduce breast cancer risk.(more)
Obesity
Dose: 3.2 to 4.2 grams dailyA double-blind trial found that exercising individuals taking 1,800 mg per day of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) lost more body fat after 12 weeks than did a similar group taking a placebo.1 However, two other studies found that amounts of CLA from 0.7 to 3.0 grams per day did not affect body composition.2, 3 Most double-blind trials have found that larger amounts of CLA, 3.2 to 4.2 grams per day, do reduce body fat;4, 5, 6, 7 however, one double-blind study of experienced strength-training athletes reported no effect of 6 grams per day of CLA on body fat, muscle mass, or strength improvement.8

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a slightly altered form of the essential fatty acid linoleic acid. Animal research suggests an effect of CLA supplementation on reducing body fat.1, 2 Controlled human research has reported that 5.6 to 7.2 grams per day of CLA produces only non-significant gains in muscle size and strength in experienced and inexperienced weight-training men.3, 4, 5 A double-blind study of a group of trained men and women reported reduced body fat in the upper arm after 12 weeks of supplementation with 1.8 grams per day of CLA.6 Further research using more accurate techniques for measuring body composition is needed to confirm these findings.

        Comments about EPIQ™ HEAT GC:

        I think that this product works. I cannot say that I know that it works for sure simply because there are so many other variables to consider, such as my increase in exercise (from nothing) and my "Low FODMAP" diet (for medical reasons).

        Nevertheless, allow me to narrate my progress. I was approximately 127 pounds in January with about 30% body fat. (I am very small-framed and short and I have been slim and fit - not scrawny - at as low as 105-110 lbs. I wanted to feel healthier and more confident, so yes, I made a New Year's Resolution to eat healthier and start working out again. At first, I was seeing some results. I got down to about 121, but kept yo-yoing between 121-124. So, I felt like I needed a little help. The clerk at GNC was extremely helpful because she listened to my goals and my aversion to most thermogenics because they make my resting heart rate go through the roof. So, she recommended this product and I bought it.
        After taking this supplement for about 2 months, I am now at a healthy 115 pounds! I don't get jitters at all! My appetite has decreased dramatically. I eat until I am full and not stuffed like I used to (In fact, I used to eat the same amount of food as my 200 pound hubby!)I do not work out as much as I want to, and I do like some cocktails, but I am still losing! In fact, I may have to stop taking it because it is working so well. 115 was my goal and now I just want to maintain and get strong. Perhaps, I can just take it once a day from now on to help me maintain and help with appetite control
        I have been taking it mostly as recommended: twice a day 30-60 minutes before a meal. Sometimes, I have forgotten and only took one dose, but still, it seems to have made the difference!

          I use to use Oxyelite until they pulled it do to liver issues. I got a sample pack of Epiq Heat and noticed the energy. I tried the new Hydroxycut, but it seems that hydroxycut never works for me. My next trip to GNC I am getting this product for sure.

          Comments about EPIQ™ HEAT GC:

          I had originally gone to GNC to see what Garcinia Cambogia products they had. The employee pointed out Epiq Heat GC to me. I decided to buy it since it was on sale.

          I started taking it Mid-January, and just finished the bottle this last week. I was at 240 pounds when I started. I did make an effort to go to the gym and to eat healthy, smaller portions. But I am human, and I did gorge a few times and skipped the gym here and there.

          I weighed myself last Saturday and was 227.7 pounds. To say I was thrilled is an understatement! I have no doubt that the Heat GC was a big part of that weight loss. I highly recommend it!

            Comments about EPIQ™ HEAT GC:

            I've lost about 8 pounds in 3 weeks following a clean diet and taking one capsule first thing in the morning. Plus I only work out moderately like 2-3 times a week, 4 at most. I haven't felt a burst of new energy, but my energy levels are constant with no dips on one hand, and no jittery energy on the other.

            I think it's also helped control my appetite, but not in an unnatural way. Whereas I used to get hungry like an hour after breakfast (a Shakeology or breakfast sandwich under 300 calories), I'm pretty much good from 7:30am to 12-1pm when I have lunch.

            Also, compared to other thermogenic supplements I've taken in the past, this one doesn't make me feel like I'm going to puke or keep me up all night (even if I have one 6 to 8 oz. cup of coffee during the day).

              As part of Muscletech's Field Test Team, I was given the opportunity to try this product during my most recent cut. I followed my usual diet for this cut, which I have used several times. The only additonal difference was using this product. I am the type of person who usually gets the jitters very bad, and in turn avoid many supplements. However, with this product that was not the case. Throughout my four week long diet I felt like I had much more energy and really felt more awake, which made a big differenc in my workouts. By the end of my diet I had lost an additional three lbs than I did the previous time.
              Overall would highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking to lose some extra weight, but not wanting the negatives of many supplements.

The fat has been peeling off my abs faster than it ever has. The green coffee extract is the new ingredient on the market for its incredible fat loss capabilities. Of course HEAT GC has it along with other ingredients that are all effective with helping aid in fat loss. I feel like I am not as hungry as usual, which is awesome when trying to lose body fat. This product gives you the extra kick to drop fat. The research backs these ingredients and I can honestly say that they really do work along with a clean, reduced calorie diet. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to drop some body fat! Awesome product with real results!

                    As a muscle tech field tester, I am given the opportunity to sample products as they arrive on the shelves. After a week of taking epic heat I am already noticing results. I find it easier to follow my meal plan as cravings have been reduced. I am more focused throughout the day without the jitters I have gotten with other burners. My workouts have also felt more in tune. The size of the capsule is easy to manage and lacks a terrible after-taste. Overall I would highly recommend this product to any competitive athlete.

                        This is by far the worst dietary supplement I have ever bought, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The label says it provides appetite control, and energy. It does not provide either. I feel this product was a complete waist of my money.
