PhD Nutrition CLA

CLA is a linoleic fatty acid and has long been used as a weight management formula

Lean and Tone system
Conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) are a family of at least 28 isomers of linoleic acid found mainly in the meat and dairy products derived from cud chewing mammals called ruminants. As the name implies, the double bonds of CLAs are conjugated, with only one single bond between them. CLA is a linoleic fatty acid and has long been used as a weight management formula within the sports nutrition and diet industry.

CLA is an extremely popular product for dieters and over 30 clinical studies have been published investigating the effect of CLA on weight management. PhD also use CLA within our top selling weight management and diet formulas, Diet Whey and the Diet Whey bar.

"This product came free when purchasing PhD Pharma Whey protein. I have been regularly taking the tablets but haven't noticed anything significant changes in my body weight however I am not on a fat loss training programme. The tablets have the same appearance as cod liver oil tablets. I have noticed they make me belch and brings up a not so nice taste! Perhaps that's just me? Not sure If I would ever have sourced or used these if it wasn't for the fact they came free and don't think I would use them again personally."

"When i first took CLA i did not notice any dramatic fat loss. However, i started comparing how i looked before taking it and after and realised that i had increased muscle mass and better definition while on it. This supplement should be taking for all types of training, both cutting and muscle feel fuller and stronger..recommend taking this with L-carnitine, fat burner and BCAA alongside a high protein diet for best results."

Q can taking this product on maximum dosage for a long period of time cause any side effects ??

The most promising science around CLA concerns its effect on weight management. Thirty-five intervention studies have been conducted using CLA in humans to investigate the effects of CLA on weight management. These studies, which vary widely in CLA dose and duration, show the most significant effect of CLA on weight management is on body composition, a reduction in total body fat and an increase in lean body mass. The effect of CLA on fat mass is modest and at the recommended dosage of 3.2g/day produces a statistically significant 90 g fat loss per week (ca. 1 lb in 5 weeks) as shown by a 2007 meta-analysis. Doses higher than the recommended 3.2g do not seem to have any additional effects on body fat reduction.

Q i already take CLA from my PHD Diet Whey protein (2-4 scoops daily)...will taking this 3 times daily be any more benefical to my fat loss goal ...or is it not that usefull because i already take the protein shake version....?? p.s. i already diet and workout 5-6x a week

Even though you are taking CLA from your shakes you are only taking in a small amount of CLA, around 1.5g if taking two full servings of diet way per day. You may experience some additional benefits supplementing with CLA 90ct also.

Q I am 63kg, about 5ft 6" and normal figure with larger than normal stomach. I'm looking to get rid of this. Would it help taking CLA with weights workout routine (as opposed to cardio)? Or would it do more good with cardio? Does it make a difference? Does CLA compare with cutting products such as Hydroxycut or Animal Cuts?

The number one thing is your diet. You should opt for high protein and most guys use protein shakes (but you can also use chicken breast, tuna and other lean meats). Also cut the sugars and starchy carbs. The next best thing is a fat burner. For most people these work best but some people prefer CLA (especially those who get a bit jittery on fat burners). It is hard to say which is "better" because it depends upon the person. Hydroxycut and Animal Cuts are amongst the two best fat burners.

Q i am considering taking CLA for fat loss however i was wondering is there any other type of supplement i can take to help promote fat loss other then the ones that i am already taking such as protein drink, fish oil, flaxseed and multi-vitamin ????

Yes, try using an fat burner designed to help speed up the rate you burn calories. Examples - Grenade fat burner, Nutrex Lipo 6 black, Phd Lean Degree

Q i have taken CLA before but i only noticed increase in mass and almost no decrease in body fat. so i stopped taking it...however i have leaned out quite a lot now and was considering giving CLA another chance with a fat-burner to get rid of that last bit of stubborn belly fat.....this is one of very few brand that sell CLA in a fat loss range...can a supplement that promotes increase in lean mass be beneficial to belly-fat loss as i have always believed you can either BULK or CUT not both ??!

CLA has many health benefits and is not used just for helping burn fat. CLA is best combined with an actual fat-burner like Grenade. When bulking you can still take CLA but it all depends on your body-type wether you find it easier to burn fat and build muscle. Most people do stick to the standard BULK first and DIET after.

Q i read somewhere CLA contains that true??... as i am sensitive to stimulant.

Not CLA dose not act as a stimulant in a sense that it keep you awake .
