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 GNC Pro Performance® CLA 1000:

      This is by no means a miracle pill, but it's very effective. Be patient with it as it can take a good three to four weeks to really start noticing the difference, but that's the same with most supplements. Bad burps the first few days, so make sure you take it with food. I also recommend four pills a day. Not being a salesman, there are plenty of sources online that will tell you the same thing.

      I took this once a day and I saw results within a few weeks. There are so many benefits to taking CLA, the fact it didn't take a long time to kick in was great. Even though it is a bit on the larger side, it's not extremely massive.

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® CLA 1000:

      I have been using GNC CLA for about three weeks now, the capsules are large but it is supposed to be worth it. Based on my research it is supposed to aid in the loss of fat. Thus far i see no significant contribution from the use of this product. I exercise on average 4 - 5 times a week with slight weight training and an hour of cardio. Hopefully continual use over a longer period may prove to aid in weight loss.

        4/5 stars is the deal. Easy to take and dont have to cycle. I take between 6-8g a day. Usually with food/snack. HEADS UP!!! will take a while to see noticable results (at least 2-3 months) However***, within a couple weeks you notice youre not as hungry and do have a bit more energy. therefore proper diet will also increase metabolism. Not a miracle pill but gives you that extra boost to help with leaning out.
