CLA Tonalin Research

Tonalin CLA Research 1:

This is an early study done on CLA effects on mice by Louisiana Stat University. They fed several groups of mice CLA for 12 weeks, and each group received different amounts of CLA. Here's what they found after 12 weeks:

* Mice that were fed no CLA had 9.9g of body fat
* Mice fed 0.25% of CLA as part of their diet had 9.3g of body fat
* Mice fed 0.5% of CLA as part of their diet had 7.5g of body fat
* Mice fed 1% of CLA as part of their diet had 5.7g of body fat

Conclusion of their research: Supplementing CLA helps reduce body fat, and higher doses of CLA helped reduce more body fat.

Tonalin CLA Research 2:

In a published study in the Journal of Nutrition, the Scandinavian research team looked at a group of healthy men and women with BMI (body mass index) between 25 to 35. They were then broken into 5 groups: placebo group, and 4 groups which were given different amounts of CLA as follows: 1.7g, 3.4g, 5.1g, and 6.8g. Here are the findings:

* None of the groups had significant changes in body weight or BMI
* All 4 groups which took CLA showed significant reduction in body fat mass and increase in lean muscle mass - this was even more significant for the 5.1g and 6.8g groups
* The 6.8g group also had the greatest lean mass gains
* All CLA groups showed a reduction in blood fat and cholesterol
* There were a cases of stomach upsets which is attributed to using CLA
* Subjects also noted a improvement in quality of life due to improved health conditions

Diet pills such as CLA are a great way to kick off your weight loss efforts and give you that much needed initial boost. But to truly succeed at losing body fat and most important of all, keeping that fat off, you need a plan - a program to help you succeed.

Tonalin CLA Research 3:

In a study conducted by the department of public health of Uppsala University in Sweden, which performed research involving 25 obese men with BMI of 30 to 34, and between ages of 39 to 64 for 4 weeks - to determine CLA effects on abdominal fat. 14 men received 4.2g per day of CLA and 10 men were the placebo group.

After 4 weeks, they found a significant decrease in the "Sagittal Abdominal Diameter" of the CLA group - in other words, the CLA group lost a good chunk of fat around the waist. The CLA group had an average loss in waist diameter of 1.4cm.

So if you would like to try CLA then make sure you choose a quality nutritional supplement outlet, that only sell the highest quality CLA products.
