Life Extension Super CLA Blend with Sesame Lignans supports the immune system, may protect the heart, helps maintain blood sugar and beneficial for lipid profiles. It also supports obesity by stimulating fat breakdown to reduce body fat mass.
CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, is a group of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid, which mainly come from meat and dairy products. Extensive research has demonstrated that CLA offers numerous benefits, such as supporting the immune system, protecting the cardiovascular system, maintaining healthy levels of blood sugar, and more!103-119
The following clinical trials used CLA to support weight loss, administering 1.7 to 12 grams per day:
- One study demonstrated that a dose of 3.4 g CLA everyday for 12 weeks was enough to reduce body fat mass (BFM) significantly in those who were overweight or obese.111
- Another study on people demonstrated that 3.2 g per day of CLA boosted lean body mass over a 12 week period.112
- A study on healthy or overweight adults over a six-month period demonstrated that CLA reduced body fat mass in specific areas of the body for everybody who participated.114
- An additional six-month study on healthy overweight people demonstrated that by supplementing with CLA, there was no additional weight gained during the holiday season!116 A moderate decrease in fat mass has been seen using only 3.2 grams everyday of CLA.117
Sesame lignans are useful for triggering fatty acid oxidation in the liver, and they also help to stimulate fat breakdown.120,121
