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 CONCRET 1008695 ProMera CAPSI-BLAST Ultra Thermo - Mandarin:

      Great preworkout or any time of day energy boost. Capsi-Blast packs a nice little punch of clean energy with zero crash. Crazy tingles from the Beta-Alanine, 100mg of caffeine, and a jolt of hot red pepper fruit (capsi) dancing on your taste buds … what's not to like about that? Great thermogenic and fat burning components in each tiny scoop of deliciousness. I don't like spicy food, so I was unsure if I would like this product due to the addition of hot pepper, but I actually love it. I would highly recommend swirling your drink before every sip or you will end up with one gulp of fire water at the end. I'm a little stim sensitive, but given that one scoop contains only 100mg of caffeine, this product doesn't cause any issues. I've taken this product late in the day and I never have a problem with it keeping me awake at night. I mix this up and drink it on the way to the gym and within 10 minutes I can feel it working. I will continue to purchase Capsi-Blast. It's a great product to use on both training and non-training days.

        Comments about CONCRET 1008695 ProMera CAPSI-BLAST Ultra Thermo - Mandarin:

        I used the Mandarin flavor and it's nothing short of fantastic when mixed with the appropriate amount of water (about 5 oz). The thermo kicks in pretty well and I would sweat buckets, even the time I downed a cup and had to cancel my trip to the gym I sat in my desk chair at work sweating. Good clean energy, not the jittery rush like I've had with some other products. I've used quite a few pre-workout type energy products and compared to them all I think this one is a winner and I'll continue using it.

        Comments about CONCRET 1008695 ProMera CAPSI-BLAST Ultra Thermo - Mandarin:

        I used this product twice before and the reason I got it the second time is because I know it works. I used it as a PWO and I did end taking 2 scoops near the end as 100mg of caffeine was not enough. Though Im sure my long days and long weeks added up and my body just needed the extra caffeine to get moving. While on it I did have the goal of losing a few pounds. Started at 191 and am now 185. All I did was clean up my diet and workout hard while taking this. The capsicum I feel really helped with the diet keeping my body hot and helping my metabolism stay healthy. The one negative is that the pepper sometimes would catch in my throat and the mandarin flavor was not super strong. But Overall a good product

          I love this product! I use it for a little "perk-me-up" drink in the morning. I like the peppery flavor and the clean taste it leaves in my mouth. I haven't really noticed any weight loss using Capsi-Blast but, to be fair, I have not been trying to lose weight so my diet is not conducive to weight loss.Capsi-Blast can be taken with either cold or hot water. Once and awhile, during the winter months, I would mix it with hot water and it made an outstanding hot drink.

              Comments about CONCRET 1008695 ProMera CAPSI-BLAST Ultra Thermo - Mandarin:

              Capsi-Blast is one of the best Thermo products on the market. The taste is amazing I have tried Watermelon and Mandarin in and I can't get enough. Capsi-Blast tastes and mixes best in 6-8 ounces of water. The only drawback is the taste of the pepper on the last sip, but that is my favorite part. It starts to kick in about 15 minutes after you take. I usually take 2 scoops so I feel it hit me face and start burning up and as soon as I start working out I start sweating like crazy. Capsi Blast provides you with great energy, focus, and fat loss. I even take it on days when I don't go to the gym to get a extra boost. I was pretty lean to begin with when I started taking it, but managed to still drop a good 4-5lbs with my diet not being the best. Promera hit the mark on this supplement. It's the real deal! Pretty inexpensive compared to other fat loss supplements on the market!

              Dosage: 3 scoop = (5.4 g)

              Hey Everyone!!
              Before I get into my review this evening. I want to take this time and thank everyone at Promera Sports for making this possible. THANK YOU!!

              Ok lets get rite into this review and talk about Capsi-Blast Mandarin. Things I'll be talking about in this review are Mixability, Taste, Effectiveness.
              This is 1 product when it states turn up the heat it does just that. I love the peppery heat this PWO has in it from the moment it hit your lips. You get the firey feeling of the heat when it touches the lips but it's not at all that firey going down.
              The peppery heat is just 1 of the things that adds to this product. Which I feel this heat makes the Capsi-Blast stand out above the rest.
              When the Thermogenesis this PWO has in it starts working. That's when some fat begins to CRY. The sweat begins to drip off like rain drops.
              Sweating is always a good thing when working out. Capsi-Blast make you sweat more than normal. Also the sweating is just another way to tell when this product is working.
              When I was looking for that little bit of energy on doing everyday things. The energy was there I just wasn't doing all that sweating.
              Capsi-Blast delivered inside the gym as well as outside the gym. Like doing life's everyday chores and killing it when it came time to hit the gym.

              Mixability: 9/10
              As for me I mixed 3 scoops with 4 oz of water . The only thing is that you get some leftover pepper extract. But then I found that mixing this with warm water helped with that. Once I used the warm water the pepper extract dissolves. But it wasn't long before I went back to using cold water. Because I liked the extra heat you would get when you bite down on the pieces of pepper extract. As I stated the pepper extract was the only mixing issue, but sense I liked the heat it really wasn't an issue to me. Because I like the extra heat it gave to bite down on them also this product mixed without any clumping or major residue.

              Taste: 9/10
              Capsi-Blast Mandarin flavor and the heat it packs from the pepper extracts is what makes this product so good. The Mandarin flavor somewhat reminded me of the Lipton Green Tea With Mandarin Orange Flavor. It's taste wasn't anything overwhelming sweet nor bitter. I've had some Mandarin flavored PWO's that where either bitter or where very sweet tasting. As for the Capsi-Blast it has some very solid ingredients that is on point.

              Effectiveness: 10/10
              Now this is where it gets good. The energy this PWO gave me was ALMOST as good as what I got from 1 other PWO I've used. I'd take 2-3 scoops of Capsi-Blast and wait for it to kick in and put me in that zone. I've also used 1 scoop of this product just for that little bit of energy. Capsi-Blast even came through with that little burst of energy when I was just doing things around the house. The energy from this product is long lasting and I also never experienced a crash or jitters while using this PWO. I would mix this product up as soon as I arrived at the gym. Then I would do some cardio and wait for it to hit. Like clockwork 10 min after downing this drink you feel the heat coming on. Starts with my face getting warm then that moves throughout my whole body. Then following the warming comes the tingling it would sometimes start in my ears. Then moves down body and it turns up your body heat and makes for a very sweaty person. I
              t's not but a few sec after all this the energy/focus hits home. This is honestly no joke of a product in comparison to some other PWO's I've used.

              Endurance: 10/10
              This stuff really works. I could go in and really pound it out for a good solid 2 hours, with very little rest between sets. Capsi-Blact would keep me going will after some of my other PWO would let me down.

              Focus: 10/10
              This is another area where this PWO shines. I've gotten tunnel vision before from some PWO's but this was a good kind it was like it helped with the mind muscle connection. I could totally zone out with this stuff and not worry about the other people at the gym. It was just straight focus as if I was the only person in the gym. Just pop in my earphones and I'm all alone. As I've stated I never got any crash from it either.

              Side Effects: 10/10
              From start to finish with this product,I never was experiencing any unpleasant side effects from this PWO.

              Overall: 10/10
              So all in all some awesome energy in the gym from this product. I was very impressed with this product day after day not building up a tolerance it remained strong. Although I wasn't trying to drop any pounds I did see a 2 pound drop on the scale from using this product. If anyone wants to get there hands on a great PWO you wont be disappointed with Capsi-Blast.
