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 MuscleTech® HydroxyStim™:

      This product worked right from the start. Gave me great energy to start my day and work out. The appetite suppressant was top notch. For the first few days, I was sweating like a fat pig. I took it for about a month and the scale didn't move as much as I'd hoped. However, b/c of this product I was working out more...averaging 4 days a week. I think my body has gotten used to it at this point so I'm gonna try something else for a while in order to rotate it back in.

        Comments about MuscleTech® HydroxyStim™:

        This hasn't work for me in losing weight, maybe because I only take 1 or maybe 2 a day, but it definitely works in keeping me focused at work and energized. The thermogenisis does work, after 10 min of taking this my body temperature does increase. I wouldn't consider this any help in weight loss except for the needed energy to work out and exercise. I don't get as jittery or get the skin flush feeling or the mid day crash and burn like some other pills have done to me before. Maybe I will try the recomended dosage to see if this will give me the extra "kick" I need in losing weight.

          This product is amazing, usually Im not the one to write reviews. I have tried many thermos and weight loss supplements but none has worked on me in the past. No pre work outs, no nothing. One of my coworkers game me them because they were too strong for her and they work amazing. Ive lost about 10 lbs in about 2.5 weeks and they boost my energy levels fast. I alsp noticed I dont eat as much as well. When i do i am able to porportion myself.

I had lost 20lbs before taking this product, and seemed to hit a wall, bought the hydroxystim from consulting a GNC employee. It helped me drop another 15lbs.
