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 MusclePharm® Shred Matrix™:

I was skeptical about taking the recommended dosage of capsules to take (3 Capsules) due to my low tolerance to Weight Loss Products. So for my first week I am only taking 2 capsules. Today is my first day taking them, this morning, 30 minutes before I ate breakfast (10:00), I swallowed two and dang, about 10 minutes later I wanted to hit the gym. This product gave me so much energy! I love it! At lunch (12:00-ish), I took two and ate... More energy came!

Now It is almost 6:00 and I still have lots of energy. I hope it wears off soon. I'm curious as how this product will affect me over time, and since there aren't any pure evidence (From what I have researched), of this product turning average-joes like me, into shredded, sexy males, I am going to update frequently on my BodySpace profile.

If anyone would like to follow me on their, please add me.

    Comments about MusclePharm® Shred Matrix™:

    I have been taking this product for a little over a month now and have lost about 9 lbs so far. It has worked well for me. I notice my need to snack has diminished a little bit. Whether it is a placebo effect or not, I'm not sure but I know that prior to taking it I would lose my motivation to cut weight after a week or two. I am 5 weeks in and plan on going for another 3.

    When I first started taking it, it upset my stomach until I got used to it. I started out doing 3 for breakfast and 3 for lunch. After a couple days my stomach got upset so I went down to 2 at each meal. After a week of that my body had adjusted to taking it and I went back to three for the remainder of my cycle.

    Pros:
    It works

    Cons:
    Makes you burp up weird herbal taste
    Caused stomach irritation for the first 3 days or so.

        Comments about MusclePharm® Shred Matrix™:

        My husband is a personal trainer. He and I just recently decided to start going to the gym before work in the mornings. We wake up at 5am and take two capsules. Usually we don't take anymore doses in a day. We are not using this product for the weight loss aspect as much as we are using it to get our butts going in the morning. It has really solved the problem of the "groggy" morning workout. No more grumpy faces or auto pilot workouts. No jitters and no crash from this product. As an appetite supressant, it works almost too well. I unwittingly ate too few calories for about two weeks on this product and gained 14 pounds because I was weightlifting and went into starvation mode. It is a great appetite supressant, just don't forget to consume enough calories to keep happy.

          Not a subscriber to weight loss products, but I had this last 10lbs that I could not get to come off. I started this using only one pill b4 breakfast and lunch, then went up to 2 pills each. I cut back on my coffee intake and did not experience any jitters or sleeplessness. I am on week 3 and already dropped 8lbs. Biggest thing I have noticed are my lack of cravings. Very good appetite suppressant. I probably wont go upto the 3pills per dose since I am seeing results at 2pills per dose.

            I have a mixed review on this product. First dose I took I had a bad case of heartburn (I expected that) about an hour later my stomach was killing me, I was physically sick, but yet I'm assuming from all the vitamins I felt good too. I know that doesnt even make good sense. I suppose I am sensitive to this prodcut. With that being said if you aren't sensitve to it I believe it would be an amazing product if you follow the directions :) if you are sensative like I am, trust me it will only take you 2-3 doses to figure it out.

                  I love using SM because it does not make me as jittery as other thermogenics. I believe in being truthful during reviews so I will say that it WILL make you use the restroom quite a bit more, and also will make you exert gas more than usual.
