Description
The unique health benefits of these oils to an entirely new level. New research is suggesting that the combination of Fish Oil and CLA has synergistic benefits.

FISH OIL & CLA* - A novel combination of fish oil plus conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may provide additional benefits for increasing weight loss, according to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center.

ABOUT FISH OIL* - Fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can' t make them.

ABOUT CLA* - Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a linoleic acid found primarily in meat and dairy products. CLA has been shown in a number of studies to have a wide variety of health benefits. One such benefit is with weight loss and body fat composition as suggested by a study done by the Veterans General Hospital in Pingtung, Taiwan. Another study published by the Journal of Nutrition in 2007 suggested that CLA increased lean body mass in a 12-week study of overweight individuals.

LIPASE* - Lipase is an enzyme that the body uses to break down fats so they can be absorbed in the intestines. Lipase is used in the body to increase absorption and improve digestion of fatty acids.

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.

        Great product. The EPA and DHA is slightly higher than most brands which is great!The added CLA allowed me to keep body fat off while gaining muscle mass. I liked that there was the lipase added to this supplement, which allows for greater absorption.
